Next month, the first big event of the British Social Season kicks off at Cheltenham Racecourse. It provides a chance to showcase beautiful seasonal fashion and what to wear to Cheltenham is a key question on every social butterfly’s lips at this time of year.

This event is the first opportunity to get out and about at one of England’s premier social and sporting occasions. With several days of top class jump racing to enjoy, spectators travel far and wide to enjoy the week. It is a great occasion for ladies to make a style statement. When deciding what to wear to Cheltenham Festival, you should be mindful of the weather conditions. It can be bright and sunny or cold and snowy, so layers, with stylish overcoats and hats are highly recommended. Sunglasses are also advised, if the spring weather is kind.
