The coat is the main event of the outfit at Cheltenham so you can keep it simple underneath – a merino roll neck paired with a tweed skirt is a good classic option. March weather can be topsy turvy so an extra thermal layer underneath is a good idea too.

I favour a traditional country look at Cheltenham but tweeds don’t have to be dull and old fashioned and can look stylish when worn with the right accessories. A silk scarf will add a touch of chic to the country look – I like this equestrian themed one from Holland Cooper or you could trim your coat with a faux fur collar. I love this chic burgundy felt trilby style had from Lock Hatters which would pair well with a tweed coat. A good pair of block leather heels is essential too – Fairfax & Favor have a wide range.
