Cheltenham Fashion

The racing season kicked off in style at the Cheltenham racecourse. Zara Tindall, who passionately followed the action on the turf, set the tone with a stylish (and season-appropriate) plum coat with matching floral hat on the first day, an elegant blue ensemble on the second and a bright red coat, which echoed the one worn by her mother, the Princess Royal, on the third.

Alongside red, white also proved a popular colour, with Katie Price rocking the pristine look, which she accessorised with a warm shawl. Autumn Phillips, by contrast, teamed a white blouse with a plum skirt, brown pillow box hat and a super camel coat.

Hats and fascinators were nothing short of spectacular at Cheltenham, particularly on Ladies Day.

Geometric patterns were also prominent, with AP McCoy’s wife, Chanelle, wearing a stunning blue number on Ladies’ Day, while model Verena Twigg braved the chilly weather in a revealing zigzag jumpsuit, which she paired with a sculptural hat and soaring wedges.

Gents mostly wore tweed — a Cheltenham classic — but some bucked the trend. Green was everywhere on St patrick’s day, of course, but there were other bright suits on offer—who says bright hues are only for women?
