Racegoers have put their best feet forward and donned all their finery to attend Ladies Day at the Ebor Festival.

Arriving in all the colours of the rainbow including sunny yellows and vibrant fuchsia, glamorous attendees braved grey skies to bring brightness to York Racecourse.

As they sported their finest frocks, styled up with fun accessories, there were also some stylish headpieces on display from chic attendees.

The Ebor Festival, which begins yesterday and ends on Saturday, hosts Ladies Day on the first day of the week’s events.

It marks the most glamorous day of the festival as the female attendees up the style stakes with fabulous outfits.

There is no formal dress code at the Ebor Festival – with the exception of an obligatory jacket, shirt and tie for men in the County Stand – but guests are reminded to dress ‘within the bounds of decency’ and take inspiration from ‘wedding attire’. 

Gathered for the much-anticipated Darley Yorkshire Oaks, fashion-forward revellers turned the racecourse into a sea of colour with their vibrant ensembles, summer prints and bold patterns. 

Frills, bodices and cowl neck dresses were among the styles of choice this afternoon as the racegoers arrived.

In general, female attendees are encouraged to sport ‘dresses, high heeled shoes together with hats or fascinators’ on the event’s official website – although organisers note that ‘it’s most important that you feel comfortable and enjoy your day’. 

The festival  is widely regarded as the most prestigious meeting at York in the calendar.

Each day racegoers will have the opportunity to watch and participate in the Ebor Fashion Lawn, a catwalk culminating in the announcement of the ‘best dressed racegoer’ picked by a panel of judges.
