For AW19, Hobbs continues to be inspired by Hampstead village and its heath. A collection perfectly combining warmth with style – a must for a frosty day at the races.

On those cold autumnal days when the winter coat is too warm or cumbersome, layering is key: Beatrice jacket £279, Lara camel roll neck £79, Peyton midi skirt £129 and Imogen over the knee boots £329. Add extra warmth with Polly scarf £45 held in place with Amy leather belt £59. Keep gloves, brolly and sunglasses to hand in the Woodley bag £159.

Trouser suits are always a fashionable winner on those cold racing days:

Look cool and crisp in Hailey Prince of Wales grey check jacket £219, matching Hailey trousers £149, Claudia white top £45, Penny sky blue sweater £79 and Bella ankle boots £229.

Going for shades inspired by the heath’s autumn leaves: Tilda coat £29 with Nadia trousers £119, worn with Andrea blouse £139 and Bella ankle boots £229. Add the faux fur Bethany coat £199 for extra warmth on those frosty race days.

Brighten up those cold dull days in cobalt blue: Elena jacket £199 and matching trousers £199, with the wrap over Elena coat £369. Worn here with the grey melange Penny sweater £79, Whistley tartan bag £159 and the Mini Luna tote bag £139 to carry more racing essentials.

Perfect choices for Cheltenham are the heritage checks:

Sophia tweed jacket £229 and Sophia tweed culottes £199, with the equestrian style Alice snaffle belt £59, Naomi blouse £99 and Imogen knee boots £299.

Or match the Sophia jacket with the Sophia dress £299, worn here with Claudia top £45 underneath, Imogen knee boots £299, Amy belt £59 and the Whistley tartan bag £159.

Hobb’s AW19 prints are of Hampstead Heath’s final flowers of the season – hellebores and winter roses. Layering the winter rose midi dress £349 with Lara ivory roll neck £79, and Jamie hiker boot £229, provides warmth and an urban edginess to this romantic dress. Also worn with the Amy leather belt £89.

For the more classic combination go for:

Naomi red dress £169 teamed with Joanna scarf £49, Imogen knee boost £299 and Woodley bag £159.

Norah pleated dress £169 with Alice snaffle belt £59 and Imogen knee boots £299.

Wear these dresses under one of Hobbs’s mid length winter coats – in various styles and all looking elegant:
