1 CHOOSE THE RIGHT HAT
The big style challenge of Ascot is that you must wear a hat (or a headpiece or fascinator — the rules vary depending on which area you have tickets for).
Tatler fashion director Sophie Goodwin says: ‘your best bet is a chic, compact pillbox or boater.’ Consider your height — the taller you are, the bigger brim you can get away with — and face shape.
