Cheltenham Festival 2022: A Guide

Cheltenham Festival Style

Unlike at Royal Ascot, morning suits and OTT millinery are not required here. Instead, think seasonally appropriate outfits (we’re talking about March in Gloucestershire, after all) in cosy natural fibres such as wool, cashmere and suede. Block heels, a fedora-style hat and a bag big enough for extra layers are essential – and most importantly of all, don’t forget your umbrella.
