Dresses for the Races

Whether you’re a Royal Ascot girl, an Aintree advocate, or prefer one of the many other races that take place throughout the UK each year, there’s nothing like Ladies Day to get you in the mood for dress-up. It's one of Team LBD's utmost favourite days out of the summer – after all, what could be more fun that glamming up in a beautiful dress and quaffing champagne all afternoon in the sunshine. Betting on horses? Well, that comes second to the fashion for us.

As one of the most publicised events of the social calendar, choose the right outfit for your day out at the races and you could even make it onto the fashion pages of the national press! A showcase for flamboyant fashion, knowing what to wear to the races can be somewhat flummoxing; after all, each and every race meet has its own dress code rules. From the length of your hemline to the right headgear (Ascot even has its own fashion police!), our essential Style Guide will keep you in the know about dressing for the races. Want some A-list inspiration? Our gallery of famous faces in fabulous race day dresses should do the trick.

If you want to make a statement, then our collection of unique Ladies Day dresses will definitely get you noticed, whilst fashionistas should pay heed to our seasonal trends report. We're loving Kate Fearnley's cool and colourful 50s style dresses, or make yourself blooming lovely in a frock that rocks summer's fabulous floral trend – the bigger and bolder the print, the better.

Happy betting ladies!
