We have picked some of our favourite pieces to act as style inspiration when planning what to wear to Cheltenham races in March, most importantly, Cheltenham Gold Cup day...

The Cheltenham Festival is in full swing. When racing takes place in March, it can be tricky to decide what to wear. Although we are currently experiencing a relatively dry spell, you should be prepared for all weather conditions. You never know what the elements have in store when you are planning what to wear to Cheltenham races in March. You need to be warm and prepared for wintery showers, but fingers crossed that the sun will make an appearance.
Gold Cup day is the highlight for many. With this in mind we have selected some of our favourite style picks when considering what to wear for the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The Jockey Club state that there is no dress code for Cheltenham races. That said, this event is all about tweeds and smart winter attire. Here are some of our favourites:
  • We love this Balmain tweed jacket, which features gold buttons and gold detailing to help you stand out from the crowd. It will work well with smart trousers or a winter dress…
