What you wear to The Dubai World Cup, Ascot and other races throughout the year is as important as what you win at these world-famous race meets. These key social events being the richest horse race in the world and Ascot in the British sporting calendar is not only a show-ground for some of the most brilliant racehorses in the world but also a fashion parade for racegoers.
These events demand race dresses whatever type of ticket you may have purchased be warned that dress codes must be strictly adhered to. The racecourse does have a right to refuse entry if people are not suitably attired.
So – what should you wear? As usual, for men, it’s easy. A smart suit and tie is the norm but top hat and tails (black or grey morning dress) is required if you’re in the Royal Enclosure.
For ladies – it’s a whole different matter. For guests entering the Royal Enclosure – there’s rules as to how much flesh is exposed. Not a bad thing as the flat landscape of both Meydan and Ascot often allows a chilly wind to whip up across the course.
