DRESS TO IMPRESS AT THE ROYAL ASCOT

The Royal Ascot is happening again this year, his prestigious event is the highlight of the social and sporting calender and the question on everyones lips is who will be there and what to wear..
 
The dress code is strict so its either go smart or go home and dress to impress and thanks to the new Royal Enclosure Style Guide that was introduced in March that wont be a problem. It contains some good ideas to make sure everyone looks chic and classy.
 
You always get that one guest that does not adhere to the dress code but thanks to the new style guide that wont happen, there are guidelines for ladies, gents and even children so no excuses this year for not getting the memo..
 
Its not all about bubbly and fashion though, we have to remember it is a sporting event as well  so for the die hard horse racing fans or for the people who feel lucky there is always http://sports.williamhill.com/bet/en-gb/events/ascot-grand-finale  for all your betting needs.
 
 
Now back to the fashion, I am loving the outfits below as styled by Martha Ward (the British stylist and Royal Ascot TV Fashion presenter) even the gents look amazing in their unique suites…
