Get Set for the Races

What to wear?

The racing season at Chester is almost upon us and there are some important decisions to be made!


With dresses and skirts, it’s safe to opt for a modest length – just above the knee or longer is our recommendation. Smart trousers are acceptable, but length is key – we suggest to the ankle. A chic trouser suit makes a refreshing change to the traditional one.

For cooler days, pairing your outfit with a small tailored jacket or pashmina is advised and ensures the weather doesn’t spoil your day.

A handbag or clutch may not be essential, but can certainly make an outfit. A handbag or clutch can also hold your racecard and winnings from the day, keeping your hands free for that all-important glass of Champagne.
