Dress Code for Henley Royal Regatta

With the Henley Royal Regatta 2011 fast approaching, now is the time to start thinking about an outfit.  And with that, should come a  swift adherence to the dress code for the Henley Royal Regatta.  It’s important you get it right; get it wrong and you risk being turned away for not meeting the strict requirements of the assigned dress code for Henley Royal Regatta Stewards’ Enclosure.  (If you’re not going to be in the Stewards’ Enclosure then smart casual dress is more than acceptable. ) Thankfully in all 172 years of the rowing event’s existence, the dress code for the Henley Royal Regatta Stewards’ Enclosure has remained very much fixed in place.

Dress Code for Henley Royal Regatta – Dresses with Short Hemlines Beware!

That the dress code for Henley Royal Regatta is renowned for being particularly strict was proved at the event two years previously when a 22 year old girl from Ascot, Berkshire was turned away from the distinguished Stewards’ Enclosure at the Henley Royal Regatta. Wearing a strapless, ruffled peach dress from Reiss, student Lucy Mogford was turned away after guards told her her dress did not cover her knees, and therefore did not sufficiently meet the specified dress code for Henley Royal Regatta.  Even despite Miss Mogford’s protests that she had been allowed into the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot wearing the same dress earlier that year, Royal Henley Regatta stewards denied her entry to the Steward’s Enclosure.  While the student maintained she’d been allowed into the Royal Enclosure at Ascot earlier that year, the dress didn’t succeed in passing the strict dress code for Henley Royal Regatta test.

The Rules: Dress Code for Henley Royal Regatta Stewards’ Enclosure – Ladies

  • A dress OR suit with a hemline below the knee
  • Culottes, divided skirts, or trousers of any kind are NOT permitted
  • Ladies are also encouraged to wear hats or fascinators

Henley Royal Regatta 2011

If you’re not a culottes fan, the no-culottes mandate might come as a welcome restriction.  The exacting hemline length rules, however, might serve more as an annoyance- high-street and even designer fashions don’t always run parallel to the dress code diktats of events such as Henley Royal Regatta.    However, with our online designer dress hire boutique catering to women with special occasions and events to go to, we guarantee that women in need of a dress that meets the requirements of the dress code for Henley Royal Regatta 2011 will have no trouble finding something that meets both their and the vigilant stewards’ approval.  Pictured are some of our suggestions for the perfect outfit, all of which are designer dresses for hire on our website.


Girls on Dresses – Karena Sedgwick

Freelance fashion stylist, events manager, PR consultant and author of www.mynewbestfriends.co.uk Karena Sedgwick gives us her life in dresses!

You first ever dress was: The dress I remember the most as a child was a pink bridesmaid’s frilly handmade satin ensemble, you got to love the 80s! I looked a little like Bo-Peep and insisted on having the pink dress, the other 6 bridesmaids were the other 6 colours of a rainbow. I felt like such a princess.

Your oldest dress: The oldest dress i have is a Jaeger vintage nautical striped pencil dress, I love it and it was such a bargain at £2 from a second hand thrift store! I wish I experimented more with vintage, my best friend has a great eye for a vintage bargain we should shop together more!

Your most expensive dress: I love a bit of Erdem, the silk feels amazing on my skin and it fits like a glove. Its worth about £1000. I usually hire or borrow expensive dresses for events; it keeps my bank manager a lot happier!

The dress that has seen the most dance floors: It’s got to be the LBD. I picked up a sexy sequinned LaRock LBD in the Barneys sale whilst at New York Fashion week a couple of years ago; it’s my fail safe lucky dress!

Your favourite dress: My favourite has got to be the floor-length, one shoulder vintage gown given as a present by the gorgeous owner of Love Is Boutique, Tunbridge Wells. I would wear it every day if I could! It’s absolutely decadent.

What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear? It was a Fashion show with Fashion TV and I wore a bandeau mini dress that I picked up in Glasgow Urban Outfitters in the sale for £10 in every colour, so easy to wear, versatile and easy to accesorize. I like to mix high-street and designer and couldn’t resist matching with a pair of Choo’s and some fabulous bling!

Mini or Maxi? With the sun shining finally coming out to play, I love to dig out a maxi dress. There are some amazing designs on the high-street right now. I have my eye on so many! I would love to have the legs to wear a mini but I’m really self-conscious about my pins!

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Scarlett Johansson and Elle MacPherson, so classically beautiful and always look a million dollars.

What is your most memorable dress moment? When I was 21, a boyfriend took me to Amberley Castle for New Year’s Eve. We had a suite for the evening and on the foot of the bed was a gift with my name written on it. I pulled out the most stunning knee length backless, embellished evening dress, by Karen Millen. I wore it with silver D&G sandals, a vintage diamond cuff bracelet and earrings and although the temperature was minus 3 outside when we were standing on the drawbridge of the castle at midnight watching fireworks, I felt so amazing in the dress and so overwhelmed with the perfect evening, I didn’t even notice I had turned blue with goose bumps. I will probs never wear the dress again but it will always sit in my wardrobe and make me smile when I see it.

Which dress would be top of your Girl Meets Dress lust list? How could I possibly choose one, there are so many I would love to wear. For my next Black tie event, I will definitely hire the Ruth Tarvydas Limelight dress but I am a huge fan of your Fendi and Halston Heritage pieces.

As someone who always has a new event to attend – how would Girl Meets Dress designer dress hire complement your life? It simply makes life so easy, and designer fashion so accessible to those who do not have the budget to splash out thousands on a dress you would probably only wear once. It’s such a great initiative and for girls on the go, saves a lot of time and effort. I love it!

 


The What to Wear to the Races Checklist

What to wear to the races isn’t just a dress issue- an outfit for the races needs to tick all the right boxes in terms of what you wear with it.  A stunning dress can be ruined by the wrong jacket, too much jewellery, or an oversized hat. On a practical note, getting what to wear to the races right, can mean the difference between having a good day and having an amazing day!  You don’t want to be shivering in the stalls or caught short in the rain, due to not being properly prepared.  Below is a checklist for you, your dress and your handbag to ensure ‘what-to-wear-to-the-races’ worries are banished come race-day.

What to Wear to the Races – Practical Must-Haves

  • A pair of flats should be part of your what-to-wear-to-the-races footwear checklist- see our lovely selection of Cocorose ballet pumps available to buy, including this ‘Portia’ pair
    • An small-sized umbrella- you don’t want your what-you-wore-to-the-races photos to look more like what-you-were-wet-in-at-the-races type pics.

    • A spare pair of tights; always handy should yours ladder/the weather turn- we have various tights to buy from our hosiery section.
    • A decent sized bag or roomy clutch- this Angel Jackson satchel will fit all your essentials and add edge to your outfit.
    • A shawl for when it gets chilly/warming up your seat/protecting your dress.  Browse our shawls to buy such as this Vintage Rose Tassel one (pictured), by Honey Lulu.
    • A pair of sunglasses.  It might be worth bringing sun cream or applying it before you go.

    What NOT to Wear to the Races

    Stilettoes or any other heel that is likely to sink into the grass is THE major what-not-to-wear-to-the-races tip.

    Aside from that, get your hemline and straps in order (always check the dress code on the official website of the particular race meeting you are attending) and what to wear to the races is suddenly a piece of cake!


    An Outfit for the Races – Ask Anna

    Just how far in advance should you get your outfit for the races?

    Unless you have a clear idea of what your outfit for the races is going to look like, I’d say start looking at least a month in advance.   We usually hear from women needing dresses for the races at least 3 or so weeks before their event.  Talk to friends about what they’re wearing- you don’t want to turn up wearing the same dress!

    Dresses for the races vs. trouser suits/skirts?

    Call me old fashioned, but the races as a sport are deeply entwined in tradition and the etiquette that accompanies it, down to behaviour, rules and of course dress code.   So, I’d always say dresses for the races over trouser suits or skirts for women. Of course trouser suits can look chic, but why not embrace tradition-dresses for the races are almost a given! Leave the suit-wearing to the chaps on this occasion.

    What with the strict dress code that’s usually required at the races, how can you ensure an outfit for the races ticks all the right boxes without the risk of looking too prim or perhaps even over-the-top?

    For starters, when picking an outfit, ignore trends and go with what suits you.  Think about what you can wear and not what you can’t.  If you are going to go for a particular trend in terms of your outfit, it needs to be worn in a classic way.

    What are the style predictions in terms of dresses for the races this year?

    If the British weather continues to surprise and the sunshine and St Tropez temperatures prevail, I think you’ll see a lot more dresses for the races in brighter colours- brights being a big catwalk trend anyway this season.   Expect to see colour blocking, floral prints, and fruit prints – another hit for Spring/Summer ’11.  In other words we can expect dresses for the races this year with a little more chutzpah!

    What kind of dresses for the races end up making the biggest fashion faux pas?

    Both hats and dresses for the races built on the premise that ‘more is more’.  What ensues is fashion disaster and fashion victimhood on an epic scale.  Hats that are too big end up looking out of proportion and detracting from the dress.  Make sure it’s dress over hat when you consider your outfit for the races.  Many do it the opposite way round, but it’s much easier to find a hat to complement your dress, than a dress to complement your hat.   And of course, it goes without saying; too much flesh on show is one of the biggest crimes of which many dresses for the races are guilty.  The dresses featured here are available in our designer dress hire dresses for the races section.
