What to Wear 

A day at the Perth Races is a great combination of exciting racing action, fun, friends and above all stylish fashion.

Make the most of elegant racing traditions and make your mark by planning your Day at the Races. Ladies and gents are encouraged to be neatly dressed and groomed with shoes and a shirt to be worn at all times. However, we have lots of grassed areas and outdoor bars, so smart casual attire is also welcomed in General Admission. We’d encourage you not to wear thongs for your own safety.

For Ladies race wear may include:

  • Hats, fascinators or headbands
  • Elegant race wear – dresses, pantsuits
  • Wedges, Heels or Flats  – comfortable for a day on grass or indoors

Gentlemen:

  • Hats
  • Suits – tie optional
  • Jacket & trousers or tailored shorts to knee

Please note, strict dress standard apply for all Members Areas so please ensure you comply if you are attending Ascot as a Members Guest or regular race patron.
