The Ladies at Royal Ascot 2021

The Ladies at Royal Ascot 2021

 One of the most prestigious events in the summer sporting calendar, Royal Ascot returned with its five-day event (15th June 2021 - 19th June 2021) and with that return, we saw exquisite tailoring and fine examples of millinery as expected each year with the event's dress code. Royal Ascot 2021 welcomed spectators back (up to 12,000 each day) as one of the test pilot events in England ongoing during the pandemic, and amongst the spectators are always some famous faces. We at A Hand Tailored Suit have spotted some stand-out outfits, and we begin with the ladies at Royal Ascot 2021.

When: Day One at Royal Ascot (15th June 2021)

The Tootsie Rollers attended all days of Ascot this year and their flowing monochrome dresses were their choice for the first day. It was in honour of the NHS, grouping together as a pastel rainbow with matching hats by Bee Smith Millinery. The dresses were a wrap style top with a V-neckline and pleated A-line skirt sitting just below the knee. Their hats were feather arrangements curving in the same direction and not forgetting their matching face masks too.

When: Day Three at Royal Ascot (17th June 2021)

Victoria Grant embraced the summer season with a bold fuchsia pink suit, paired with a white ruffled blouse and a matching fuchsia pink hat. The textured jacket was designed with a crew neckline, formed when fastened with the five-button placement. The shoulders are padded to elevate the bold look further as the jacket comes in at the waist to flow into an A-line shape at the bottom. A matching pleated cummerbund is worn on the trouser waist, featuring a centre crease and slight bootcut shape below the knee. Her hat includes a structured feather detail and the very common Merry Widow veil also in fuchsia.

When: Day Two at Royal Ascot (16th June 2021)

Sagal Mohammed's choice of dress was a lovely floral floor-length number with a cream structured hat to pick out the yellow/cream flowers in the pattern. The full-length sleeves featured layers of ruffles on the cuffs to convey the vintage vibe of the cloth, with slightly gathered shoulders and an additional panel at the bottom just below the knee to create a subtle flare to the shape. She was also pictured with Melissa John, who wore a blush pink pleated dress with a broderie anglaise top with sleeves at a 3/4 length. A slight high ruffled collar and centre panel down the top of the dress into the satin waistband and subtle matching floral hat was a great elegant choice for the event.

When: Day Three at Royal Ascot (17th June 2021)

Also known as Ladies' Day at the event, the third day of Ascot really delivers with extravagant hats and accompanying fashion from the ladies who attend, and milliner Debora Day certainly didn't disappoint in that regard. Her wide-brimmed red hat with layers of fabric gathered for a textured hat was designed with a feathered swan on top, but to add to the overall look was the matching red floor-length gown with a long train which followed behind her. Embellishment and embroidery definitely added extra glamour to the attire, a show-stopper.

 When: Day Four at Royal Ascot (18th June 2021)

Susan Bender Whitfield suited up for the occasion during day four in a red two-piece Lisou London suit with the matching blouse, accessorised with a black straw top hat which features a silver brooch and embellished black veil over the front. The suit's jacket itself included notch lapels on a double-breasted cut, finished off with a 4-button placement on the front. The jacket's front edge meets for a sharp corner on the hem and with the jacket left unfastened, the matching shirts displays a miniature version of the pattern on the suit, styled with a covered button placket and left open collar. The trousers are high-waisted and work very well with the double-breasted jacket, the sharp centre crease down the front delivering for an overall sharp suiting number.

When: Day Four at Royal Ascot (18th June 2021)

Suits are becoming more popular for the ladies' dress code at Ascot and Sabrina Percy's attire was one not to miss. With parts previously owned or borrowed, she amongst with other attendees focused on sustainability and how an item can always be styled differently to transform into a brand new outfit. Her suit consisted of three pieces: a single-breasted black jacket with satin lapels cinched in with a gold and black belt, tailored slim trousers finishing high above the ankle, and a separate embellished jacket worn draped over the shoulders. A wide collar and notch lapels add to the drama of this suit, with a wide-brimmed hat featuring a short crown with a flat top. It's certainly a great look.

When: Day Five at Royal Ascot (19th June 2021)

Lisa Tan's final day attire was a very geometric number and full of a variety of patterns that was very much a stand-out. The top of the dress features a rounded collar with the cuffs on the sleeves slightly flaring out. Styled with a black belt around the waist, the the slight A-line silhouette of the skirt is defined with a hat of her own designed with a cap brim and lace crown with a black bow and fine feathers to finish off the hat piece. It's a very 60's style attire but one that's very cool.

When: Day Three at Royal Ascot (17th June 2021)

Janette Manrara wearing a floral floor-length dress was one full of movement and shape also as she paired it with a Sarah Cant sinamay wide brim hat. The dress itself featured a red and pink floral pattern on a black background which very much allows these summery colours to be defined. The V-neck of the dress is defined by the red panelling outlining the top as it leads into ruffles on the shoulders and below the waist. The bishop sleeves fall into high gathered cuffs which really provide extra shape to what is a vibrant and feminine summery dress.

Of course, there are always so many fabulous outfits at Ascot, so here are a few more that we couldn't not mention, including more vibrant dresses and crisp tailoring. Which caught your eye at this year's Royal Ascot?
