We know what you're thinking, the Races aren't until the Summer! What are we doing talking about them now? At Molly Browns, we know how important it is to feel and look your absolute best, especially on a Special Occasion or glamorous event. We also know that the earlier you start looking for your perfect Race Dress or Outfit, the far wider choice you have to explore! Many designers don't repeat their styles and so once they're gone, they're gone! The latest 2017 collections from John CharlesRonald JoyceCondiciIspiratoIrresistible and Eleni Elias to name but a few are already here in-store in York so why not plan ahead and secure yours today?

Of course, when planning to attend events like York Racecourse's Ebor Festival or the Royal Ascot, there are certain dress codes to take into consideration. We thought we'd help lay them out for you...

Royal Ascot (20th - 24th June 2017)

The Royal Ascot's Dress Code has a variety of rules that also depend on the enclosure you are attending:


For an example of a Race Outfit that would look fabulous in the Royal Enclosure, we suggest looking at something like these beautiful and elegant styles. (Ispirato IW949John Charles 26249BIspirato IW908)


With the Queen Anne Enclosure, you have a little more leeway to define your ideal look and the additonal option of a fascinator as opposed to strictly a hat. Here are some examples of styles that would look absolutely stunning and guaranteed to turn heads. (John Charles 26203AIspirato  IW952Condici 70848G)


In the Windsor Enclosure, no formal Dress Code applies, though ladies are still encouraged to dress smart. Here's our pick for a stunning Race Outfit for your day out. (Irresistible IR8624S7John Charles 26211BRonald Joyce - Veni Infantino 991009)

Ebor Festival (23rd - 26th August 2017)

York Racecourse's Dress Code is a little less strict. Ladies are advised simply to dress for a smart Summer occasion and hats are welcomed but not compulsory. No jeans, t-shirts or sportswear, but let's be honest, you were looking for something more glamorous weren't you! With rules like these, the breadth of Race Outfit choice is much wider and you have the leeway to accessorize even further! Some of our personal favourites that we haven't already mentioned this year include these stunning styles. (Ronald Joyce - Veni Infantino 991205John Charles 26182ACondici 70853N)
