Ladies must wear formal daywear that includes skirts or dresses that are no higher than slightly above the knee, with straps on tops being required to be thicker than one inch.
Trouser suits can be worn, but must be matching and ladies must also wear a hat or headpiece that has a base of at least 10cm.
