The dress codes for attending the races in England consist of many rules and regulations. And while that can feel a bit old-fashioned, there’s something quite inspiring about colouring inside the lines, so to speak—and having fun with it. And that’s what strikes me about the best-dressed women at Ascot every year: For all the limitations, they still manage to pull out some of the most exciting outfits you’ll see all year, some of which provide solid inspiration for weddings.
Such was the case at the first day of Ascot yesterday, with Kate Middleton leading the royal crew in a pretty shade of cornflower blue (even The Queen opted for this hue for the opening day). Lady Kitty Spencer opted for something altogether more bridal with a white lace shift, while fashion girls in attendance opted for brighter colours overall, flourishing many a look with feathers, feathers and some more feathers.
