What To Wear To The Races

It's that time of year again - time to dust off your top hat and head down to the races. Now that Royal Ascot is in full swing, any racing enthusiast will know that the real competition is a sartorial one. The other gentlemen parading around the enclosures will be groomed to perfection, much like the noble racing steeds. If you want to stand a chance of competing in the fashion game then you need to follow these simple style rules…


The Jacket


Ensure the blazer is a classic cut; you need to look like you mean business, whether you're entertaining clients or hedging your bets on a dark horse. This is where JLB comes in - the Jonas blazer is in a timeless navy that will see you through the racing season. The inner paisley lining shows a flash of personality but blazer as a whole commands attention.

Blazer - Jonas Navy £75.00

The Shirt


At the races it's easy to keep it classic with a simple white shirt that goes with everything. The Blijah is a wardrobe essential that will not disappoint, but if you're feeling brave and want to have a little more fun with your outfit, Hepburn is ideal. Not too loud so so as to distract the horses, but not so subtle that you don’t get noticed.

The Waistcoat


If you want to go against the typical Ascot look of black blazer and camel waistcoat, go for Mario to match the Jonas blazer. A waistcoat really shows you mean business and gives that polished, dapper look.

The Accessories


No Ascot outfit is complete without a top hat. It's your choice, if you want to blend in with the royals then don’t go without one, but if not then maybe just stick to a stylish pair of sunglasses.
