Cheltenham Festival is one of the most prestigious events in the racing calendar. Every year, the event attracts hundreds of people who gather together to enjoy twenty-eight races across the four days, alongside a wealth of additional entertainment.

Unlike Ascot, there is no official dress code for Cheltenham, though it’s still regarded as a highly fashionable event. The lack of restrictions, however, offers up the ideal opportunity to experiment with outfitting and wear what works for you. From tweed suits to linen three-pieces, see below for a few ideas on how to dress for the races.



Moss - slim fit sage herringbone tweed suit



If you want to lean into traditionally British fabrics, tweed is a great choice. Neutral tones like oatmeal and cream are always a good shout, but if you want to follow the Cheltenham trends, our sage herringbone suit fits the bill. Cut to a flattering slim fit, wear it as a two-piece or with the matching waistcoat and finish with a neutral knitted tie. You’ll complement the natural surroundings and it’ll keep you warm if there’s a breeze, too.


Moss - tailored fit oatmeal linen suit


If the weather’s a little warmer, it’s time to get out the linen. Airy and breathable, it’ll keep you cool and dry all day long while the tailored fit will have you looking sharp. With a classic slubbed texture and a natural light beige shade, our oatmeal linen suit looks great paired with a coloured linen shirt to add a bit of dimension, and finished with a tonal tie. As for footwear, continue the spring aesthetic and choose a pair of lightweight Lewisham loafers (providing it’s not too muddy, of course).


Moss - slim fit quartz pink suit

Injecting a bit of colour into your races outfit doesn’t have to be dramatic. Sometimes, a subtle shade of a vibrant colour can really uplift a look and help you stand out from the crowd, without looking too overdone. Our quartz pink flannel suit is cut to a slim fit and comes as a two-piece or three-piece, depending on your chosen style. The muted pink tone looks great with whites and greys, allowing for a wealth of possibilities when it comes to accessorising.
