Step into the elegant world of horseracing, where a passion for equestrian sport is combined with distinguished style. Whether you are an avid racing fan or a first-timer, deciding what to wear for your next day at the racecourse can be tricky. On this page, we break down the dress code for the different racing occasions. From casual-chic race days to the classic French elegance of the Prix de Diane Longines, we give you all the tips you need to dazzle on your next trip to the racecourse.


Chic yet casual

On the racecourse, the preferred style is relaxed yet chic. For non-Grand Prix race days, a simple yet smart outfit is best. Opt for comfortable clothes that reflect your own style. A nicely-cut shirt and trousers, elegant shoes or smart trainers will allow you to blend in while staying comfortable.


The keywords for Grand Prix events: Elegance and refinement

The Grand Prix events held on our racecourses are extraordinary race days that require racegoers to dress in an elegant and refined way. For these special events, choose clothes that are suitably stylish. Men might opt for a nicely-cut suit with a matching tie, while ladies might wear a sophisticated dress or chic ensemble. Accessories such as hats, scarves and jewellery add a touch of glamour to any outfit. At our Grand Prix events, it is important that you dress to impress, adhering to the dress code above.

As you might have guessed, it is not the time to wear your new shorts and favourite baseball cap 😉
