Ladies
Ladies are kindly reminded that formal day wear is a requirement in the Royal Enclosure, defined as follows:

* Dresses and skirts should be of modest length defined as falling just above the knee or longer;
* Dresses and tops should have straps of one inch or greater;
* Jackets and pashminas may be worn but dresses and tops underneath should still comply with the Royal Enclosure dress code;
* Trouser suits are welcome. They should be of full length and of matching material and colour;
* Hats should be worn; a headpiece which has a base of 4 inches (10cm) or more in diameter is acceptable as an alternative to a hat.

Ladies are kindly asked to note the following:

* Strapless, off the shoulder, halter neck, spaghetti straps and dresses with a strap of less than one inch (2.5cm) are not permitted;
* Midriffs must be covered;
* Fascinators are no longer permitted in the Royal Enclosure; neither are headpieces which do not have a base covering a sufficient area of the head (4 inches / 10cm).
