Firm Fashion Favourite: Trouser suits.
Trouser suits are up in the trending lead and have become the hot item to wear amongst the celebrities, so take a tip from the A-listers and rock a suit at Cheltenham.
To ensure your look doesn’t look businesslike, go for colour (bright or pastels) and/or a print.
We’ve chosen a light emerald green colour block blazer and ankle grazer slim leg trousers from M&S. Made of polyester with 11% elastine for added stretch so you can wave your arms around when your horse passes the post first. Also available in raspberry pink.
M&S Emerald blazer £55.
Ankle grazer slim leg trousers £27.20.
We’ve put together two different collections to show how to accessorise your suit depending on your style:
Look 1: Golden Classics.
This look will brighten up your neutrals whilst toning down the bold colour of the suit to create an elegant fresh style.
The long camel coat – the epitome of classic. Weather permitting; keep the coat undone so you can flash that emerald suit, no jewel should be hidden. The Cara coat from Hobbs is a mix of 86% wool and 13% cashmere.
Purr with glamour in a Beverley Edmondson leopard print cloche hat. It’s 100% angora with velvet corsage flower detail.

Wrap yourself in a cosy jet black asymmetric faux fur scarf from Cuckooland.
Flats are still in vogue. Go for Gold in the soft rose gold leather Fern brogues from Dune.
Many celebrities choose to wear nothing under their jacket for a sexier look. Whilst this isn’t practical at the races, you can still achieve this sexy look by wearing a cami. Ted Baker’s Cynaria Linear jewel cami with its Art Deco inspired design complements the 1920s style of the cloche hat and faux fur stole. Available at House of Fraser.
