"Many shoppers buy a new outfit each year whereas others re-invent an existing outfit with accessories, spending on average anything between �200 and �1,000.”

 

Style Consultant, Gabbie Cowley, said: ““With the racing season fast on the approach, women are now starting to think about their race day look and statement head piece. This week traditionally marks the start of racing shopping - we’re expecting a lot of our shoppers to be hunting out stacked heels and dresses in the season’s key colour palette of sugar almond sorbet shades, orange hues and flushes of floral.”

 

Chester Racecourse hosts fifteen race fixtures throughout the summer between May and September, starting with the prestigious May Festival on Wednesday 9th, Thursday 10th and Friday 11th May which brings over 60,000 racegoers to the city across the three days.

 

This year's Grand National day at Aintree will be on Saturday 14th April but the most extravagant raceday fashions will be seen on the Friday on Ladies' Day
