‘Tis the season to look hot and be glamorous, a feat which has its own hurdles when outside watching the races on a cold winter’s day. Here are our Day-to-Night Style suggestions on how to beat the cold and be a winner in the glamour stakes:

Oui’s multi check jacket takes the fashionable yet classic black and white dogtooth pattern and playfully weaves reds, blues and yellows over the print to create rows of texture, colour and fun.

Price £239 from House of Fraser stores or online from Oui.com

 

Not just reserved for eveningwear, this season the sparkling sequin is brightening up our day too. Dazzle in Whistles black sequin pencil skirt, a classic style that is back in the fashion front line.

Price £149 from House of Fraser.

The key to wearing sequins during the day is to team with something simple such as a t-shirt, slim polo neck jumper or an oversized jumper. For the festive racing season choose a top that will take you from day to evening. Second Female long sleeve frill collar blouse makes an ideal transitional piece.

Price £80 from House of Fraser.

Team with a pair of boots to dress down those sequins and for warmth as the weather can be freezing cold. Knee-high red leather boots will make a statement during the day and won’t look out of place in the evening.

Dune St Lucia knee high boots are priced £175.

Unlike the summer races, hats are not as ostentatious and are mainly worn for warmth but that is not to say they can’t be stylish. SHMillinery’s black fur felt cloche hat is chic and will help keep you warm. Floral Embroidery is still on trend and SHMillinery takes it to the next level with hand embroidered red roses and green leaves Dolce & Gabbana style!

Price £60 via EtsyUK.

Take a medium to large bag to hold gloves, scarves, tissues and a pair of sunglasses just in case the sun comes out! In soft luxury Italian black leather, Paolo Masi’s tassel hobo bucket bag has been hand woven and made by artisans in Florence.

Price 365 via Attavanti.

Layering is key for the winter races. So choose a loose fitted coat to wear a jacket underneath. Opt for colour to help cheer a cold day such as Michael Kors Faux Fur pea coat in raspberry red.

Price £395 from House of Fraser.
