If you know anything about the Ascot races you will know Ascot dresses and fashion is a pretty big part of it. I will be the first to admit that Ascot fashion isn’t really my kind of fashion – Ascot dresses are usually very prim and proper with an
insanely tedious intense dress code. I have been thinking about what to wear and getting a little stressed. I can assure you that only 0.1% of my clothes and 0% of the dresses are Ascot appropriate. Of course, I don’t want to buy a new Ascot dress especially since I will probably not wear it in my real life. While online shopping researching I came across some perfect dresses which I have picked for this post – they are all Ascot dress code approved, they are not too expensive (most under £50) for a one-time wear but they are also dresses that you can wear for many other occasions.
A. Mango Embroidered Cotton Dress £49.99 (similar) – this is like the cutest non-ruffle summer dress. Immensely wearable for Ascot and beyond.
S. Zara Guipure Lace Dress £49.99 (loved this formal dress in such a fun colour) – in case you didn’t notice, this summer’s colour is bright yellow. Its really strange but even I have been tempted!
C. Quiz Cream Flower Print Midi Dress £26.99 (I like the contrast between the fit and the pattern) – I am super happy about finding this dress. I love the not in your face floral and the perfect-for-Ascot fit. However, what I am most happy about is the fact that it is perfect for Ascot (with pink accessories), perfect for a summer wedding (with yellow shoes?) and perfect for work (just picture it with a navy blazer thrown over). I love pieces like this!
O. Topshop Pleated Cold Shoulder Dress £38 (loved this abstract chic dress) – I am picturing this with a bright red hat and red lipstick for the Ascot and a black blazer for Monday morning.
T. Dorothy Perkins Slash Neck Dress £18 (I loved this red dress which fits great for work too) interesting how its so similar to this one. And sometimes prim and proper needs a little bit of punch.
There is a lot more of Ascot coming up on the blog – I am going for the races this week (can’t wait!) and will be reporting back. I am still not sure what I will be wearing – waiting for something to magically jump out of my closet.
