Royal Ascot fashion: second-hand sustainable outfits for less than £100 💃 👒

Champagne at Royal Ascot

The countdown to one of racing’s most extravagant events is on, so you know what that means – fascinators are back! And we couldn’t be more excited. However, this year we decided to look at more sustainable alternatives that you can be sure will still turn heads.

To give you a little Royal Ascot inspiration, the team at myracing have pieced together a few second-hand pieces that can easily be thrifted from sites such as Depop and Vinted – The best part is most of these outfits are less than £100!

Without further ado, here are our top 10 second-hand Royal Ascot looks:


First on the list is this stunning white one-shoulder dress perfect for a day at the races. Piecing it up with this royal blue sequin fascinator really does make a statement. Let’s just say Made in Chelsea star Kimberley Garner would approve. With a price of £29.99 for the fascinator and an even better price of £15.50 for the dress, this outfit total comes to just £45.49 – talk about a bargain!



Next on the list is this purple frill hem dress that really stands out, especially for a day like the races. Although the ruffled look gives the outfit character, the fascinator definitely steals the show. What’s more, the dress only costs £12.60 on Depop, whilst the fascinator is priced at £29.00, bringing the total to a healthy sum of  £41.60.


This might be a simple look but it sure does have a lot of potential. This lovely pink lace skater dress paired with this avant-garde style bespoke fascinator really does complement this look. The dress is sold on Depop for just £20.00, though the fascinator is a little on the pricier side costing £75.00. The total of this pairing, therefore, comes to £95.00.


This next outfit is truly a floral piece of art with a fascinator to truly accentuate this look. The dress comes out at a price of £38.25, whilst the fascinator costs £19.96. This, therefore, brings the total to a spectacular price of just £58.21.


This might be another simple piece but it certainly is perfect for a royal affair as its style embodies the sort of Kate Middleton elegance that is unmatched. This blush pink embroidered midi dress completed with a pleated bottom only costs £31.50 whilst the beautiful straw-like hat is priced at just £10.00, bringing the total to £41.50.


This outfit will surely brighten up your day, similar to Charlotte Hawkins’ Royal Ascot look back in 2021, this elegant piece is sure to grab the attention of the crowd. However, unlike Hawkins’ Laura Green London dress which costs a whopping £1,950.00, you can rock a similar look for just £11.70 and a beautiful yellow fascinator for £19.99, meaning a total of a far more respectable £31.69.


This look is another lovely ‘pretty in pink’ combination that exudes elegance. This is a beautiful pink lace dress that is perfectly complemented by the rose blush pink fascinator. This Royal Ascot look is the highest priced look on our list with the dress costing £65.00 and the hat at £58.00, the total of this pairing comes to  £123.00.


This dress is truly one of the books. It is a stunning Aurora Jacquard midi dress retiled at the price of £125 but on Depop it costs just £24.00. This is the perfect dress for those who want to make a fashion statement at the races. Once coupled with this custom-designed hat (£45.00), this look comes to a price of £69.00.


This gorgeous floral dress screams Royal Ascot. To top it off the beautiful black and blue flower accent on the hat really does complement the look by giving it that every edge. This dress can be purchased on Depop for £60.00 and the hat for £45.00, which is a total of £105.00.


Finally, number one on our list is the beautiful Chi Chi London Alyssa Floral Print. This look is a fashion statement and you can be sure that this look will turn a few heads at the races. As one of Depop’s finest, this dress comes at the price of £69.99, when coupled with this lovely Vinted hat (£15.00) this pairing boasts a wonderful total of just £84.99.

On the whole, there are a lot of beautiful second-hand pieces that we have set to suit a variety of tastes, all showcased to fit the iconic Royal Ascot dress code but most importantly these pieces highlight a sense of creativity and fun by bringing an array of vibrant colours to life.
