Using the emerald suit from Cheltenham Chic – Golden Classics, a different set of accessories can create an entirely new style.
Look 2: BoldJewel Tones
For a fun and fresh youthful look, colour-block with other brights and textures.
The cocoon coat – this style is roomy enough to take a blazer underneath without looking bulky. Hobbs Lacey coat in purple clashes beautifully with the emerald suit. The Low V-neck fastening allows a glimpse of the emerald blazer underneath. The concealed buttons create a clean simple silhouette.
Price £239 in 80% wool and 20% polyamide.
Create a soft halo glow with BEMillinery’s silver velvet beret embossed in a crocodile skin effect and trimmed with velvet arum lilies. The silvery tone provides a stylish setting for the jewel colours. Also available in black and royal blue.

Make everyone green with envy with a luxurious silk scarf from Black Rose Collection. This hand woven Vilvadi scarf is wide enough to use as a shawl if the weather turns warmer. Embossed with a rose print the scarf is also available in gold, vibrant red and chocolate brown.
The trouser suit can be worn with mannish flats or elegant heels. Here we’ve chosen the heeled shoe boot which doesn’t look out of place whatever the weather. Plus it gives a little more stability than other heeled shoes when walking around at the races.
Slip in to a pair of United Nude’s signature Fold Hi boots. This style is made from a single strip of elastics to fit like a glove. With a leather lining, rubber outsole and a comfortable slightly wider heel. Available in many multi colours, the Night Drive stripe just adds a touch of sunny yellow to complement the green suit without taking away the limelight.
In full bloom, add a colourful floral cami for a feminine touch. We’ve opted for Ted Baker’s Cynaria Linear floral cami in a vintage inspired design. Available at House of Fraser.

Radley’s Bloomsbury small multi coloured barrel bag seals the youthful colour-blocking look of the outfit and mirrors the oranges and pinks in the cami top.
