Cheltenham Racecourse, Gloucestershire
12-15 March 2019, Ladies Day 13 March
The Cheltenham Festival is well known for kicking off the hat wearing season. It's often a chilly affair so hats often have a functional practicality in addition to being utterly fabulous! Countryside chic is the order of the day. Cossacks and fur fedoras are popular shapes on the day, but fascinators incorporating wools and tweed are often seen at this big racing event. Pheasant feathers in all varieties are a popular trim nicely fitting into the countryside theme.
