The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

What does a girl wear to Ascot?

Posted on


So what does a girl wear to Royal Ascot?

Until a couple of years ago, Ladies Day at Royal Ascot was a big feature in my social calendar, from planning my outfit to organising coaches (or indeed limosines) for a group of friends to indulge in a champagne induced day of fun. For me, it is always about the hat or fascinator and I tend to select that before anything else!

The first year we went, we spent more time concentrating on keeping our fascinators straight than the action at Royal Ascot but amazingly we had consistent wins on the races and consequently keep our glasses charged all day long.

We made ourselves comfortable in one of the champagne "tents" ..... although one friend got a little too comfortable and ended up falling over the picket fence surrounding the tent. We found the main stands were a little crowded and the picket fence gave us no end of amusement. (As much as I would love to share a picture of this, I promised that I would never share it!).

Unfortunately for me, I haven't been for the past couple of years but with Royal Ascot starting next week, I can't help but look around for the "perfect" outfit and if I were going this year, this would be my choice.

What to wear to Ascot

So my top tips for enjoying Royal Ascot this year are:

  • Get an outfit that you feel comfortable AND fabulous in.
  • Check the length of your skirt .... they are very strict on this in recent years.
  • It is all about the hat, so choose wisely.
  • Have a spare pair of shoes because your feet will be aching by the end of the day, unless you want to walk home bare feet.
  • Don't lean on any picket fences.
  • Have fun!

  1. A great idea to start the day by getting a Limo and a sneaky glass of champagne along the way. Loving your dress and I have to agree it is all about the hat.
