Royal Ascot is one of the most important dates in the UK's summer social calendar - and as befits such an occasion, it has a dress code all of its own. Now's not the time to flash the flesh or showcase your cutting-edge fashion sense. The trick is to dress to impress in classics with a twist - and don't forget your hat!

What's the style? A satellite-style hat.
As worn by... Katherine Jenkins at last year's Royal Ascot. The singer showcased her show-stopping style - and won herself plenty of column inches - by wearing this dramatic Philip Treacy creation, complete with huge flower and peacock herl feathers. Thinking of wearing a fascinator instead? Be warned: they're no longer allowed in the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot.
What the expert says: "A big saucer-shaped hat with statement styling details can certainly help you stand out from the crowd," says award-winning stylist Lisa Talbot. "A large hat can really help rebalance the lower body, so they work really well if you have a pear-shaped or hourglass figure."
Look for similar styles at...House of Fraser as there are some gorgeous saucer-shaped styles in the Linea range.
