The etiquette at Ascot is simply; skirts to be the length of you knee or longer and straps no less than one inch thick, also Strapless, off the shoulder, halter neck, spaghetti straps are not permitted, and a good trouser suit is always welcome. A short dress doesn’t always mean sexy it can often take you the other way and make a very desirable lady look unappealing.
The changes for this year have come with the headwear, fascinators have been banned in the royal enclosure and hats are strongly encouraged.
Is it really that hard to find an appropriate outfit for the average budget? I have had a look at many fashion outlets and I think with a careful eye and a little bit of time the ladies of Britain could really up the stakes.
It is very hard to know what to wear as the weather can turn from sunshine to showers in a instant but, Diva catwalk fashion house is a great place to start, their retail outlet is mainly on line, http://www.divacatwalk.com/ and has some treasures that will certainly work for Ascot. Their designs are not just for the petite ladies, they have a range of sizes for all shapes, and familiar faces such as Kate Winslet have sported the Diva range.
Dresses do average the £100 mark but they are not just one time wear dresses, they have a great life span, due to their simple and classic designs. The Mercedes dress and the Q dress are two perfect picks and the most delectable thing is that they are offer an exciting prism of colours.
As Coco Chanel said so well “Fashion changes, but style endures.”
