Royal Ascot: Last Minute Outfit Inspiration

With Royal Ascot approaching, ensure your fashion stakes are high. This can be a tricky occasion to dress for but we have made it easy for you to comply with the dress code and feel fabulous.

For women at the Royal Ascot it is important to think formal, longer hemlines and more modest designs- after all there’s a chance you might see royalty. This may sound slightly strict but there is a lot to work with when it comes to print, colour and detailing to make that stylish statement.

We have broken it down into key trends and great outfit builders to ensure your overall look is fit for the Queen.

Monochrome Moments

Monochrome is such a classic trend that we see season after season. This year we are seeing a lot of Polka Dot prints and also Animal prints too. So whichever you desire these dresses are perfect. Damart’s Knot Front Dress gives you a simple yet elegant silhouette in a contrasting print perfect to make an impact at an event such as this. As is this Crinkle Dress in striking Animal Print with a super fit and flare shape lightweight dress for the occasion. To add that extra formal finishing touch, pair both dresses with a Collarless Blazer in a crisp white to make your outfit pop.

Pretty Pastels

Summer’s most sought after trend is Pastels. Go subtle with cool hues of pink and blues to the races, perfect with a touch of lace and detailing for that feminine touch. Damart’s short sleeved Lace Dress in blush is perfect if you’re a fan of those subtle pinks and this Printed Lace Dress in sky blue is on-trend with longer length sleeves for more coverage. And if you’re simply looking for a blazer to complement your outfit, you’ll love Damart’s Lace Jacket in powder and ecru.   

Dream Green

Go bold with a gorgeous green statement. Striking and elegant this Printed Dress in a fit and flare shape is the ultimate summer stand out outfit with hints of yellow and blue tied into the print. As you can tell we are a big fan of the lace trend and Damart’s Mid Length Dress with lace sleeves is a subtle nod to this- in a fresh evergreen colour with classic shape with open crochet sleeve detailing. If you’ve already got an outfit but need a little extra coverage, this Waterfall Jacket is simply stunning.

Shoe Envy

When dressing for an occasion like this, you cannot go wrong with a classic pair of heels. And luckily Damart have a wide collection from Heeled Sandals and a Classic Court Shoe – not only this but a range of colours so that you can find the perfect accessory to whatever outfit you decide upon. Add a bit of glam with your shoes and be the envy of most!

Accessorise with Style

If your outfit needs a little something extra to really feel like you’re ready for the Royal Ascot, Damart’s wide range of bags and jewellery will add that touch of sparkle. This Chain Detail bag comes in two metallic colour-ways and is the perfect size to fit all your essentials in for a day at the races. A statement necklace is the accessory touch to any outfit and Damart’s Multi-Beaded Necklace will add a drop of colour to your chosen look. If you’re a little bit more glam, go for our Pendant Necklace for extra style and glamour.
