Royal Ascot Dress Code - Rewritten

This post is a styling opportunity I have been given in company of a online retailer FARFETCH. The Royal Ascot, one of the prestigace horseracing events in Britian, which focuses more on the fashion than the race itself. I've been ask to "Re-Write the Royal Ascot Dress Code". When I was contacted about the contest I was on board, as this is my chance to express my creativity in fashion and style a unique outfit for the event which can be completely out of the box but still appropriate for the event. I have took the liberty of scrolling through the website and couldn't make my mind up on one outfit, so I created 3 outfits extremely different from each other. There is so much inspiration on their site and originality in their clothes and their campaigns.

//Maison Rabih Kayrouz Asymmetric Draped Dress//Alexander McQueen 'De Manta' Clutch//Piers Atkinson Flower Appliqué Pillbox Hat//Saint Laurent Paris Pumps//
There is something about this dress which is perfect for such an event. The simple white dress just hangs over the knee and the way the drapes falls is just perfect for the races as it is just an elegant dress. With such a beautiful dress you need to mix it up a bit with a crazy hat, this flower number caught my eye whilst looking for hats because a hat is COMPULSORY at such an event and makes the outfit feel more suitable for the races.
//Michael Kors Cropped Tie Detail Shirt//Chloe Cropped Trousers//Dolce & Gabbana 'Bette' Ankle Boots//Dolce & Gabbana 'Dolce' Shoulder Bag//Salvatore Ferragamo Leather Gloves//
Outfit number 2 and it's time to get more formal, SHIRT AND PANTS COMBO. It's all so minimal and simple with a black tie shirt and cropped white pants but the main focus is the accessories within it. I am breaking the rule of no hats here, woops...however a cute red shoulder bag with embroidered details and some leather gloves builds this outfit to royal status.
//Oscar De La Renta Floral Print Strapless Top//Joseph Pleated A-Line Skirt//Talbot Runhof Embellished Coat//Sophia Webster 'Lola' Pumps//Saint Laurent Medium 'Sac de Jour' Tote//Dita Eyewear 'Hurricane' Sunglasses//
I am breaking the rules double this time, going no hat, and a top with no straps. My excuse is THE COAT WAS MY FOCUS PIECE FOR THIS OUTFIT, I was stunned when I laid my eyes on this mesh coat with embellished details on the sleeve, so no matter what all my outfit had to revolve about the coat. A floral strapless top is a cute especially teamed up with this pleated midi skirt. I wanted items which can also stand out so these colourful shoes with this creative pattern could tie the outfit together, along with a vibrant green bag also some statement eyewear.
