Ask the Stylist: Winter Racing

Dear  Ask the Stylist

I’m heading to the races this weekend for ladies Day at Leopardstown, judged by Philip Tracey (I guess a hat is a must then!).  What does one wear to a winter race meeting to look glam and still stay warm? Thanks !

With the racing season kicking off this weekend at the Hennessy Gold Cup (where Jasmine Guinness and Philip Treacy will be judging the Best Dressed Lady competition) we get in the mood with some racing outfit inspiration.

For this Ask the Stylist query, we turned to Martha Lynn for her expertise. Martha has won quite a few Ladies Day competitions herself, even at Leopardstown Races where the Hennessey Gold Cup takes place this Sunday.  She also happens to be a milliner (hat maker) and works out of her studio in Dublin, see  and is pictured above in the red coat and hat.

Martha says:

Fur is really in at the moment and I picked up a lovely vintage one in London last year so I’m hoping to wear it to the next race meeting.

You can’t argue with fur when it comes to keeping you warm.

I know not everyone is a fur fan, so some good thermals will do the job and not interfere with your glamorous outfit!!
