Dubai World Cup dress code: What to wear to the 2019 races

There's no need for tweed – but it's well worth getting dressed up a bit

Dubai World Cup dress code: What to wear to the 2019 races

Fold up that tatty skirt and put away your crumpled blazer – the Dubai World Cup is no time for your scruffs.

The dresscode at Meydan racecourse is smart-casual, so it’s time to make an effort.

There’s no need for tweed and you (hopefully) won’t require your wellies like you might in Blighty.

The Dubai World Cup is one of the biggest events in both the sporting and social scenes – and people go all out.



And it’s no surprise with massive prizes up for grabs for the best dressed. It’s time to find that perfect, showstopping hat.

It’s not just the horses that will be strutting their stuff at the racetrack. Keep an eye out for where you can enter the competitions on the day.

This year, the Dubai World Cup is being held on Saturday March 30, with the first race at 3.45pm. Gates open at noon on the day, and hospitality packages kick in with 30 minutes to go.

Time Out Dubai will be bringing you live coverage throughout the day with galleries of all the best outfits, hats and action from the track. Click here to see the top pictures from last year's races.

There will also be plenty of entertainment, with Grammy Award-winning pop legend Gwen Stefani set to headline a huge concert at the end of the night.
