What to Wear? 

The Cheltenham Festival has always been a showcase for sartorial elegance alongside thrilling horse racing. Although specific style guides for the Cheltenham Festival 2025 have not been officially released, the event traditionally encourages smart attire, reflecting both the prestige of the occasion and the seasonal weather of early spring in the UK. 

For men, opt for tailored suits or tweed, complemented by accessories such as ties, pocket squares, and polished shoes. Given the likely chilly March weather, layering with a smart coat or a classic wool jumper can add both warmth and style. Hats, while not compulsory, are a popular choice, ranging from fedoras to flat caps, to add a touch of personality to your outfit.

As for the ladies, the style at Cheltenham tends to combine elegance with practicality. Dresses and skirts paired with blouses or stylish jumpers are common, often worn with tights to account for the cooler temperatures. Coats and jackets vary from tailored cuts to fur-lined or quilted options, offering both warmth and fashion statements. Accessories play a key role, with hats and fascinators adding a traditional racing touch to the ensemble. Footwear should balance style and comfort, with many opting for boots or block heels suitable for navigating the racecourse.
