What to Wear to Ladies Day at Aintree Races
The Grand National might be the main event for the jockeys, but for us fashion lovers, Ladies Day is where it is at!

There is no strict official dress code at Aintree, but Ladies Day is still seen as the place to show off your style – you are even in with the chance of finding fame as the winner of the coveted Best Dressed prize.

What to Wear at Chester Races Ladies Day
Ladies Day at Chester Races offers a few options when it comes to what to wear. If you have tickets to County Stand, the dress code is strictly smart, though Tattersalls is slightly more relaxed, meaning you can dress up with a little more freedom – so shorter skirts, jumpsuits and strappy dresses are allowed.
However, shorts and sportswear are still not permitted – including trainers.

Want to keep things glam for your Chester Races Ladies Day outfit? Our Gracelyn backless bandage dress is simply gorgeous – and perfect for taking you from the racecourse to the cocktail bar.

Looking to nail that Cheshire vibe? Our Lea one shoulder peach bandage dress does just that! We adore the classic nude tone and demure pencil skirt of this dress, offering a great option for what to wear to Ladies Day, wherever you go.

Gorgeous with a white blazer and heels, this dress is the perfect answer when you don’t know what to wear to Ladies Day!
What to Wear to Ladies Day at Ascot
Ladies Day at Ascot poses a big question when it comes to choosing what to wear. The Ascot dress code is one of the strictest, having been the place for the upper echelons to see-and-be-seen-in every year.
While some enclosures at Ascot Ladies Day are a little more relaxed, smart or formal dress is still encouraged. For ladies, hats, headpieces or fascinators are compulsory, and skirt lengths must be ‘modest’. Strapless, off the shoulder and halter neck dresses are also a no-no, as are sheer fabrics and bare midriffs. Straps must also be at least one inch wide in the Royal Enclosure.
Royal Ascot Ladies Day Outfits…
Want to keep it classy but still show off some killer curves? Our Shelbie high neck red bandage dress is just what you need. Ready to style up to your liking, you could go head-to-to scarlet with a bold red headpiece.
Pink is a huge colour trend this season, and is sure to be popular with many Ladies Day outfits this year. As Ladies Day at Ascot takes place in June, the summery cerise tone of our Maycie pink bandage dress will go down a treat. Pair with white, cream or silver accessories and you won’t need to worry what to wear to Ladies Day ever again.
