Epsom Derby fashion 2016: Combine the fashionably dressed with the greatest flat race in the world and you have Investec Derby Day.

On this Classic raceday, the dress code in Queen’s Stand is a formal day dress or tailored trouser suit with a hat or substantial fascinator. In the Grandstand Enclosure guests are required to dress up and for the Hospitality areas ladies are asked to wear a fascinator or hat. For all areas, definitely no fancy dress.

Firm Favourites in the Fashion Stakes: Stripes, Full Bloom Florals.

Stripes are always a firm favourite in the spring, but this season they are stronger than ever, making trend waves beyond just the nautical look. With an imaginative flair, Coast’s Millana Dress‘s floral bands add a fresh contemporary twist to the striped design and combines two fashion trends in one: floral and stripes. Price £149.

Complementing the dress’s floral print are the bold bright pink peonies on Sally Sharper’s Hermia headpiece. Each peony is made by hand and stitched into place so they can be seen all around the headpiece. Black crin creates a flowing sculptural base and two long quills in raspberry pink and candy floss add to the drama. To be worn on the right side of the head. Price £155.
