Try your luck and enjoy the thrill of the races in a fresh shade for summer. Take advantage of the sporting occasion in a welcome change from the sea of black and grey suits. Wear this pale blue 3-piece suit with a crisp white shirt and blue tie to keep it looking sharp and clean. You want to be comfortable not stifled so relax into it by leaving the jacket undone. And pay attention to the finer details such as cufflinks, a belt and pocket square.


Look cool and collected even if you hit the jackpot in a sharp mid-blue 3-piece suit. Your horse may not win but rest assured you'll be in the running in terms of style in a skinny or tailored suit which will slim your silhouette. Complement your blue suit with a light pink tie and a contrasting pocket square to ensure you feel confident on the grandstand. And don’t forget that all stylish men undo the bottom button of their waistcoat. It’s a sartorial quirk dating back to the reign of horserace lover King Edward VII who even has a race named after him.


More subtle and understated than a black mourning suit, the odds are on a 2-piece navy suit. After all, it's versatile, smart and complementary to every skin tone. When it comes to the races, upgrade your 2-piece to a 3-piece to pull the outfit together so you cut a fine figure when standing in the enclosure. You can also remove your jacket if the temperature rises and still look sharp in your waistcoat, freshly-pressed formal shirt and matching trousers. Continue the winning streak with a pale blue tie and pair of brown brogues.
