Are you off to Royal Ascot this summer? Need inspiration? Well look no further!
This year at Investec Ladies Day Derby, Chi Chi took over! We hosted a fabulous style awards, judged by our very own Head Buyer Sophie Wood. The top three ladies were sporting some serious style statements and all looked absolutely beautiful. The runner up was looking lush in lemon in one of our very own dresses – Daisie. Finishing first was the lovely Abigail in a cute zip up blue floral dress, with a colour blocking hot pink fascinator and accessories to match. Stylist Mark Heyes and Good Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins1 presented the lucky winner Abigail with a year’s supply of Chi Chi dresses plus a trip to Mexico.
There is no denying that the ladies and gentleman who attended were dressed to the nines and looking incredibly stylish and dapper. We spent half the day in awe of the fascinators which were more avant-garde and fabulously wacky than ever.
Overall it was a fabulous day of people/style watching… and the horses.

5 top tips for winning styles –
- Fake it to make it – Get fake tanning for that gorgeous golden glow which compliments any outfit so perfectly. But don’t forget to do it two nights prior as the English weather can be soooo unpredictable and you wouldn’t want to get caught in the rain with an unwashed/instant tan
- Go Chi Chi or go home – the races and Chi Chi go hand in hand, so why not get over to our website for the dress that goes hand in hand with you! We sell over 800 different styles, so we know we won’t let you down when it comes to finding the perfect match
- Get a clutch on it – Trust us when we say don’t go too big. Keep it small, simple and stylish. P.s make sure your bag has an over the shoulder strap/chain.. How are you going to carry your prosecco, bag and phone in just two hands?!
- Accessorize to win the prize – the fancier the fascinator the better. Make a statement with your jewellery too to complete the perfect elegant style
- Have fun
