Some of the most stylish and enthusiastic race-goers who will be in the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot are York sisters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. Whilst the sisters may cop some criticism for their fashion, we always love to see the ensembles these lovely Princesses choose as their style evolves into sleek, modern, sophisticated women. With their penchant for sharing clothes and daring headpieces, it’s sure to be another spectacular of royal racing fashion season.
We have styled some looks we would love to see Princess Beatrice wear.
For Princess Beatrice we chose the Roksanda ‘Gathered Crepe’ dress. A beautiful navy long sleeve, fit and flare dress with a full draped skirt to just below the knee. The dress has dramatic voluminous balloon sleeves, gathered at the elbow and wrists. A bright pink contrast trim sits around the neckline to create a fun and edgy detail in a very subtle manner. The clashing colours allow for an interesting combination of accessories.
We have chosen a Jane Taylor white sinamay saucer disc fascinator, with pastel pink and baby blue looped quills and feather. The shape and style is favoured by Beatrice and the colours pull in the dress and other accessories.
An Edie Parker acrylic clutch with ice cream pattern for that quirky luxury fashion item that Beatrice is so fond of, teamed with white sky high Gianvito Rossi pumps.
Beatrice loves ‘bee’ themed jewellery though, the pair of we have chosen are actually Vivienne Westwood ‘flie’ earrings.. A pretty and feminine outfit with colour matching quirky luxe accessories, we feel showcases Princess Beatrice’s Royal Ascot style.
This ‘Lana’ tuxedo dress from Hobbs is the perfect colour for Ascot, and will look wonderful with Princess Beatrice’s auburn hair. The dress features sheer blouson sleeves, and a double-breasted covered button fastening at the waist. The satin shawl collar wraps into the tuxedo style. It is currently on sale here.
We paired this with a hat from Rachel Black; this ‘Parade’ sinamay button base sits on the left-hand side, and features large yellow roses and windowpane-fabric curls head skywards. It costs £235 here.
The shoes are from Sophia Webster, the ‘Rio’ style in lemon yellow, while the bag is the ‘Midi Mayfair’ from Aspinal in white croc. Beatrice is a fan of top-handle bags, and this is the same style seen on The Duchess of Cambridge.
Beatrice rarely wears earrings, and her hair often covers her ears, so we thought we would let the hat and the dress do the talking for this look!
