It’s confirmed! Royal Ascot will take place once again this spring on 15-19 June 2021, welcoming 12,000 guests on each of the five days. Seven horse races are scheduled per day, making this year’s event the biggest ever – offering 35 races in total!
We’ve been locked up, on and off, for over a year so this prestigious flat horse racing meeting is the perfect occasion to show off your latest classy clothing purchases. Whether you’re attending for Ladies Day or the Gold Cup, you’ll want to stand out at Ascot’s annual fashion festival.
You’ve already got your show-stopping hat, and you’ve picked out a beautiful sundress, but hang on… what if it rains? Yes, we’re all enjoying this gorgeous spring sunshine but this is Great Britain after all! Don’t forget to layer up with Baleno’s smart country coats and jackets.
To help you racegoers decide, here are Baleno’s Best Buys for Royal Ascot:
Chelsea Ladies Coat
The Chelsea remains a firm favourite among classy country ladies, and it’s easy to see why. Based on Baleno’s ever-popular Kensington long coat, the Chelsea is an elegantly tailored shorter coat that offers the same superb weather protection and durability.
Convenient for everyday use, the Chelsea is wind, waterproof, breathable and has taped seams. The perfect choice to keep you and your sundress dry, while remaining ultra-chic on the racecourse. Choose yours from a range of colours to suit your race-day outfit: Navy Blue, Terracotta, Camel, Earth Brown or Pine Green.
RRP £199.95, Sizes XS-XXXL
Darlington Ladies Jacket
If trendy tweed is your thing, then look no further than our Darlington Tweed long jacket. Modelled on the Chelsea, the Darlington features Baleno’s coveted technical printed tweak fabric to create a new, stylish look. Racegoers will stop in their tracks when they see this fabulous fabric!
Available in two colours (Khaki Tweed or Navy Tweed), the Darlington has a handy 2-way zipper for extra mobility and comfort when you sit. There are also 2 big pockets with hand warmers that are perfect for storing your tickets and winnings! On top of that, the cuffs have adjustable straps for an extra snug and sophisticated look.
RRP £253.95, Sizes XS-XXXL
Belford Men’s Jacket
For the gents, we suggest the Baleno Belford jacket in dark green. Whatever the weather throws at you on race day, this classic long men’s jacket will keep you dry and mobile while you place your bets. Waterproof, windproof and breathable, the Belford features a two-way zipper with a double storm flap and rain gutter, as well as adjustable outer cuffs and a detachable hood. Just the ticket for keeping your suit tip-top if the weather turns.
RRP £239.95, Sizes S-XXXXL
Oakwood Men’s Jacket
Another successful all-weather jacket, the Oakwood is a highly desirable country jacket among gentlemen. The generous bellow pockets will accommodate everything from your race day programme to your wallet, while the supple cuffs will prevent water and wind from entering as you sip champagne. The drop liner will also keep you dry no matter what the Great British summer has to offer. Choose yours in either Camel or Pine Green.
RRP £225.95, Sizes S-XXXL
Despite the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, Royal Ascot 2021 still promises to be a fantastic celebration with 500 horses racing across the five days as part of the Government’s Events Research Programme (ERP).
