What to wear to the races

Readying up for race day? As the 2015 racing season kicks off with Cheltenham Festival next week, along comes the annual dilemma of what to wear. But don’t panic – we’ve got all the race day inspiration you need so even if your horse isn’t in first place, you’ll still be winning in the style stakes.

Whether it’s Aintree or Ascot, Royal Enclosure or Grandstand, the trick is to find your own personal style while also sticking to the sartorial rulebook. We’ve pulled together three looks guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowds.

Feeling blue

A key colour trend for SS15, head-to-toe baby blue is sure to brighten up the day. Look to Kate Middleton’s race day style by adding an elegant tailored coat over the top – a must-have when it comes to the unpredictable British weather. Finish with a look-at-me fascinator and metallic accessories for a look that is hot to trot.

A dash of lime

Hint to the spring season with a zingy lime colour palette and beautiful blooms. Pair back with neutral grey accessories to really let the colours pop and if it’s a chilly day, you may want to add a touch of faux fur and complementary coat to keep the cold at bay.

Radiant in Red

If the weather is bordering on the side of cold we recommend you build your outfit around a bold statement coat. We’ve paired this vibrant Dorothy Perkins duster coat with a failsafe LBD and black heeled sandals so the print really stands out. Race day is the perfect opportunity to have fun with headwear, so why not top off your look with a statement hat or fascinator?
