8NO FRUMPY FLORALS
ASCOT tends to reflect the trends of the day: in the Twenties, the women were decked in pearls and fur — you rarely see real fur there now — while the Eighties were all skirt suits and shoulder pads.
This year, we are set for a flourishing of florals. To stop them looking frumpy, choose a big, bold print and consider confining them to a skirt, rather than a whole dress.
