Here's some good advice from Furlong Fashion
'For Ladies lucky enough to be racing the whole week during the festival -different days can call for different looks. With Ladies day and Gold Cup day being the slightly more formal days, you should opt for a more glamorous hat. For example an elegant Percher or cute Pill box with a veil or display of feathers. I am sure that we will also see many cloche style hats in vibrant colours alongside the more traditional fur Cossack style hats, Trilbies and Fedoras throughout the week. One betting certainty is there will definitely be no shortage of feathers firmly upholding the Cheltenham traditions.'
Most of alll- if you are lucky enough to be going to Cheltenham...have fun and stay warm.
