Seeing as the jump racing season has just begun, it’s given us all the chance to enjoy the great outdoors by taking a trip to famous nearby tracks like the Cheltenham racecourse. Not only does this provide us with the opportunity of having a quick bet on the horses, but it allows us to try out some of the more stylish additions to the A/W 2016 fashion catalogue. We recently saw some striking outfits at the Oxford Fashion Week in October, and there’s plenty of room for such fashionable attire at some of the big racing meetings over the winter period. In particular, the Cheltenham racecourse is renowned for providing some of the most stylish sporting affairs that will definitely see sportswear and trainers being abandoned in favour of this season’s on-style trends of well-cut outfits that take in a little military chic and plenty of velvet. The fact that race meetings leave us exposed to the chilly winter weather means that we all get the opportunity to jump aboard the shearling trend that’s probably the cosiest way to stay fashionable this season. Other luxurious fabrics that are going to be a big hit at all the stylish racecourses include velvet which works wonders as a maxi-dress or as a chic blazer. And the animal print trend gives us all chance to wear plenty of faux-fur to stave off the inclement winter weather. Obviously its important to check ahead with the racecourse website to see which dress codes are applicable to different viewing sections. And be sure to check the Betway horse racing betting site so that you can enjoy a quick punt at the races whilst deciding whether or not to wear that fascinator. Headwear at the races is a big thing at stylish race meetings like Royal Ascot in summer, but flamboyant fascinators probably aren’t going to cut it at a Cheltenham jump race in the middle of November! A far better option is to keep things a little more subdued, and by taking a few notes from the military chic style that revels in the rich greens and browns, you could be fitting in nicely with the countryside set. So whether you adopt the luxurious velvet look, or keep it sharp with the on-trend military style, it shows that it’s not just the horse racing betting that will leave you with plenty of options for your day at the races this winter.
