Everybody knows that fashion doesn’t just get its premier moments on the catwalks of the world’s top fashion shows.
We’ve already illustrated how social media is playing a huge part in global fashion trends, but it seems that fashion at horse racing events like the Cheltenham Festival is becoming a big thing, much like the ever increasing Cheltenham betting markets!
Fashion and horse racing has a long and illustrious heritage. With many top horse racing events such as Royal Ascot having aristocratic associations dating back to the 17th century, it’s no surprise to find that such events have become synonymous with glamour, as well as some seriously extravagant headwear.
The Cheltenham Festival has drawn particular attention due to the implementation of Ladies Day which takes place on 16 March this year and always gathers a lot of press due to the huge varieties of colourful styles on display.
As racing events are thought of as being moments where everyone’s expected to wear their finest, they’ve also become places where dress codes have become implemented in order to ensure the highest possible standard of fashion.
Because of this it’s always a good idea to check the racing event’s dress codes to make sure that you’re not likely to capture the wrath of the fashion police. And similarly, in order to really enjoy the Cheltenham betting fever, be sure to visit the Coral site that features a big list of user-friendly betting tips and news so that you can really celebrate in style.
As the Cheltenham Festival takes place in the chilly months of early spring, many attendees will be trying to balance a glamorous and chic look, whilst not suffering too much from the sometimes inclement weather.
Thankfully tweed is expected to be big news in 2016, and as such, it offers the dual function of being well-suited to traditional British countryside sports and it will also keep you cosy. And many other on-trend fabrics of the 1970s such as suede and leather are also looking to make a comeback so that you can stay stylish and stay warm too.
Many raceday visitors will also be making a real effort to impress with some seriously elaborate headwear. And whilst some eccentric raceday hats may catch the eye, it’s often a better idea to try and keep things simple and aim for a chic example of headwear that won’t get in the way of your betting!
