The Royal Enclosure Dress Code
For Ladies, only formal day dress with a hat or substantial fascinator is considered acceptable. Off the shoulder, halter neck, spaghetti straps and dresses with a strap of less than one inch and miniskirts are considered unsuitable. Midriffs must be covered and trouser suits must be full length and of matching material and colour.
Gentlemen are required to wear either black or grey morning dress, including a waistcoat, with a top hat. Top Hat's may be removed within a restaurant, a private box, a private club or that facility's terrace, balcony or garden. Hats may also be removed within any enclosed external seating area within the Royal Enclosure Garden.
Grandstand Admission Dress Code
Ladies with a Grandstand Admission ticket are required to dress in a manner appropriate to a smart occasion. Many wear hats although this is not compulsory. Gentlemen must wear a shirt and tie, preferably with a suit or jacket. Sports attire, jeans and shorts are strictly forbidden.
Silver Ring Admission
With a less formal atmosphere, the Silver Ring does not provide access to the main grandstand or the Parade Ring. Whilst Ascot encourage racegoers to wear smart clothing, no formal dress code applies.
