The Cheltenham Festival is a glamorous horse racing event in the UK every March. We all dream of going and those who do get the chance to have an awesome time. And, we need to look our best amongst the punters and rub shoulders with the celebs, right?
If you’re lucky enough to go, here are four not-so-obvious fashion tips that you need to be aware of at Cheltenham.
1# Not into Fashion? Just Go Smart Casual:
You don’t need to wear an outrageous outfit or have heels that make you feel like you’re towering over everyone else. Far from it. Smart casual is a good style too. After all, the English winter does get cold and you do want to look good whilst at the same time being nice and warm.
2# Hats, Hats, Hats:
Horse racing attracts some of the funkier styles of headwear. You’ll see the elegance and the ostentatious. But, hey different people have different styles, right? We shouldn’t judge.
One essential thing that you should consider though is the wind. England is a windy place and hats do blow off. It’s a funny thing if you’re watching. Yet, I think I’d die of embarrassment if it happened to me.
3# Dress for the Toilets:
People forget this one. Not all of the toilets will be luxurious and you should expect to use the portable loos at least once or twice. I don’t need to tell you that these can get, well unhygienic, as the day progresses.
To put this in a delicate way, you don’t want to wear something that adds extra challenges when you do want to go. The last thing you want to happen is to get your clothes a little bit messy.
4# Watch out for the Scams:
Wherever crowds go, the thieves and pickpockets follow. Make sure your phones and purse are in a safe place. And, bring the handbag that’s difficult for people to get their grubby little fingers into. Fashion comes second to keeping your things.
While we’re on the topic, another scam to be aware of is the people who are selling tips. They’re not who they say they are and are just after your monetary tips for their opinion. Scammers tend to prey on women who look like they don’t know what they’re doing.
Don’t fall for their scams or listen to their tips. You can see the Cheltenham festival 2017 betting & odds at William Hill website. William Hill will also provide the tips. The scammer is probably trying to sell you the ones they read on their phone this morning!
And make sure you know how to place a bet. You can ask someone who’s into horse racing or watch some explanations on YouTube. It’s all there.
What Should I remember?
The most important thing to remember is to have a wicked time and to enjoy yourself. Dress up and show yourself off whilst at the same time staying warm, avoiding embarrassment, and staying safe. And always get your tips and odds from a reputable website or people. Scammers are around and are after your money.
