Deciding what to wear at the races can be stressful and confusing, with differing dress codes and accepted styles, so we've highlighted five fail-safe outfits, guaranteed to make you look and feel your best.
A day at the races can so be so much fun, spending time with friends and family, enjoying light refreshments and watching some of the most magnificent horses. With such a wonderful atmosphere, you'll want to wear something that makes you feel great all day long.
Opt for refined ensembles in classic styles that will flatter your figure and stay comfortable all day long. Thankfully, Cheltenham does not have an official dress code, which gives you the opportunity to showcase your unique style, whether that is in luxurious tweed or warm, knitted layers. Choosing outfits that can be layered up or down with plenty of accessories is essential for the changeable weather during the festival.
Woven in the Scottish Borders by Lochcarron of Scotland, this striking tweed jacket co-ordinates perfectly with the silk neckerchief, which is printed locally in the Cotswolds by Beckford Silk and was specially designed to complement the jacket. This vibrant take on the traditional green tweed ensemble is sure to stand out from the crowd and at the same time look perfectly at home during the Cheltenham Festival.
Looking for a subtler ensemble? Our cotton tweed jacket in a flattering shade of dove grey is the perfect piece to wear. Wear with the pima cotton jersey top or a knitted pointelle top for warmth and the textured bias skirt in a co-ordinating hue. For a splash of colour add bright accessories for a striking contrast.
This vibrant ensemble perfectly encapsulates contemporary chic in luxurious crêpe, tweed and jersey. The limited edition tweed jacket adds a sophisticated finishing touch to your outfit, with a silvery lurex thread running through the fabric.
This classic ensemble features our best-selling styles in pure wool for warmth and style.

Finished with a silk scarf printed in the Cotswolds at Beckford Silk, this is a great choice for all-day warmth and comfort.
