The horse-racing event kicks off tomorrow – and you’ll need some eye-catching headwear.

Royal Ascot – Day Three – Ascot Racecourse

One of the biggest horse-racing events of the year, Royal Ascot takes place this week – June 18 to 22 – and if you’ve nabbed a ticket, you’ll know the fashion is pretty much as important as which jockey makes it over the line first.

The historic event is synonymous with elegant dresses, tails and of course, incredible headwear, and the dress code can be strict (you may actually have to measure the base of your fascinator, for example). It just depends which stand you’ll be watching the action from.

Whether you’ll be brushing shoulders with royalty or sipping Prosecco in the Windsor Enclosure, here’s the Royal Ascot guide to the fashion rules.
