What to Wear to Cheltenham Races

What to wear to Cheltenham Races is the question that many bettors ask as they plan their trip to the famous Cheltenham Festival. This event takes place every March and features some of the finest horses and riders in the world of equestrian sports. This race traditionally takes place on the afternoon of a Friday, it was on a Wednesday but pressure made it move towards the weekend as a showpiece. It sometimes falls on St Patrick’s Day which makes it popular with the Irish.

What to wear to Cheltenham Races? Try Mish Mash Menswear for a start. It does need to be a little bit formal depending on where you are going to be sitting in or standing. Cheltenham is a rural town and the country set is very much in evidence. Having said that, the Irish contingent bring the colour and the fun and also an easier going nature to the whole event that lifts it out of the doldrums of the stiff equitquette and elitism of Ascot.

So, in conclusion the great thing about this racing festival is that you can pretty much go in whatever you like and just make sure you have a really great time. Just try not to lose your shirt!
