The ladies day at Royal Ascot is the biggest race day dress parade off the year by far. Anyone who is anybody is there just to be seen and of course the dress is all important.

Perfect For A Day At The Races Or a Wedding


Aintree Race Course

The Grand National

Of course this one needs no introduction as this is one of the biggest horse race gambling days in the year. People who do not gamble usually make an exception for this one even if its just a sweepstake at work. It may not have Royal in its title but the race day dress is just as important as ever. The other difference is that on The Grand National ladies day there is no dress code. That means race day dresses can be anything you want. The dress could be short and strappy and everyone will be happy.

However I don’t think a track suit would quite cut it so you need to go for something like a Badoo Dress in pink.
