Its June already (I know, we can hardly believe it ourselves) which means one of Britain’s most prestigious sporting events of the year – Royal Ascot. Next week, hundreds of thousands will gather at Berkshire’s small town of Ascot, with big hats and fancy fascinators at the ready, to observe one of the best known horse racing events in Europe. Betting, horses and the great royals aside, Ascot has been increasingly renowned for its fashion focus, the Royal Ascot style guide proclaiming itself, “A day at Royal Ascot is very special and dressing accordingly is an important part of the experience”. Here at Ernest Jones we have all those little extras you need to accessorise your outfit and complete that elegant Ascot look.
With Swiss horse racer Jane Richard as one of their ambassadors and partners with various horse racing competitions, Longines are the timekeepers of choice when it comes to Royal Ascot. Powered by self-winding automatic movement, this Longines Conquest Heritage men's leather strap watch delivers all the precision required of sports timekeeping, teamed with a sophisticated style that would look perfect on any suited and booted gentleman at the races. A black leather strap, gold tone detailing and traditional Roman numerals give a classic image, teamed with stainless steel and a brushed silver tone dial for a dash of contemporary style.
No suit is complete without a smart pair of cufflinks, and this Hugo Boss set provides a sleek combination of cufflinks and tie clip. Made from stainless steel, the simple cube cufflinks are engraved with the Hugo Boss name, which is matched on the minimalist matte tie clip. Simplistic and refined, these accessories are perfect for understated sophistication that won’t distract from your attire.
For the women, Ladies’ Day at the races is the perfect opportunity to don their finest jewellery, attire and hairstyles to walk the celebrated catwalk that is the grandstand at Ascot. These Badgley Mischka white topaz & freshwater pearl drop earrings are perfect for the occasion. Inspired by the elegant Fleur De Lis and set with sparkling white topaz, a delicate freshwater pearl drop adds a refined touch that beautifully shimmers from beneath that extravagant hat. Team with this fine Longines La Grande Classique ladies' watch with a graceful mother of pearl dial and precious diamond markers, to exhibit a look that oozes delicate luxury.
If like me, you aren’t fortunate enough to attend the revered event, then why not exhibit your own dash of equestrian inspired style over the Ascot week? This charming Ted Baker ladies’ rose gold-plated rocking horse necklace will add a quirky touch to your style, and be just as stylish for wear all year round.
