From the earliest years, Ascot attracted the nobility of the time. It is rumoured that the third day of Races acquired the title ‘Ladies Day’ as it drew the largest audience of the female kind, enticed by the elegance and style of the occasion.
Following the same trend, Xanthe is a soft, dusky pink number that illustrates those beautiful delicate details we love; a soft, floaty skirt, combined with an intricately sequined, lace embellished top. Gracie made from a soft Georgette fabric, drapes delicatley flattering every figure beautifully. With ruching at the waist and floaty, fluted sleeves, this dress is an effortless and elegant look for that special occasion.
Pastels are perfect for Summer and whether featured in prints or complimented in a delicate fabric, they are the ultimate feminine staple.
Bold florals: Floral never goes out of style, but large Vintage blooms, worn by the likes of Pixie Lott at previous Ascots are always a good choice for making a statement at Ladies Day.
Our bold Ria dress nails this trend. A retro number in pillarbox red, featuring our signature ruby red rose vintage print. The statement red against the softer print is a vintage classic. With delicate scallop trim and a bow detail at the waist adding that 1950’s charm.
The Harper also shows how to make floral prints stand out. In a fabulous green jewel colour, also on trend, this wrap style dress with full skirt is a floral knockout!

Audrina in ivory lace is classic, sophisticated and never goes out of style. This ivory, lace number features delicate eyelash detail, a satin tie sash and ¾ sleeves, which create a flirty feminine number for that special Summer event.
