A day at the races is a glamorous affair, one that dates back centuries. Ladies were expected to dress for occasion, long dresses, hats and gloves were a must. However that all changed, when in 1965 Jean Shrimpton attended the races in a white shift mini dress, no hat or gloves and caused outrage and envy all over the world, yet she changed the face of fashion, at the races, forever.
Hats and fascinators have, however, made a come back. The dresses we see at the races today are less formal and more audacious, striking and glamorous then ever before.
