Cheltenham Chic

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.

Price £499.

Purr with glamour in a Beverley Edmondson leopard print cloche hat. It’s 100% angora with velvet corsage flower detail.

Price £135.

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.

Price £39. 0207 003 400

Add a splash of orange to the Golden classics cocktail with Max Mara leather shopping bag in tangerine.
