News – Up The Style Stakes


With the weather warming up and our Races Fashion and Beauty event well underway, we’re getting ready for our ladies evening at Chester races on 30th June. As official sponsors of Chester Racecourse, we believe that preparing for the event holds as much excitement as attending.

Whether it’s a new dress for the ladies or a fitting suit for the gents, we are your first port of call to pick up your race wear essentials, ensuring you’re looking your best at the finish line and are races ready for our annual best dressed competition.

The cool outsider

Enjoying a boys day out or wanting to look your finest for a day with your partner this ladies evening? We love this three piece Pale Blue Slim Fit Suit from Burton (£131) to stay on trend with pastels for summer or, for a more casual look, pair Burton’s Navy Peak Lapel Blazer (£60) with a relaxed shirt and over jeans to dress down.

A scuplting piece

If you’re a gym fanatic who struggles to find a suit to fit your shoulders, chest, biceps and thighs, Topman’s latest range of Muscle Fit Suits may be the perfect option for you. We know how great a perfectly sculpted suit can make you feel so make sure to place your bets on a suit developed specifically for your frame.


A casual alternative

If getting suited and booted isn’t your cup of tea (or pint of beer!), Jack & Jones will be your go-to with this Workwear Blazer (£85). Wear this slim fit blazer with patch pockets over jeans and pair with on-trend sunglasses by Jack & Jones so you can spend your day in style and comfort. 

Ladies, it’s all about you

There’s no doubt that accessories really pull an outfit together and on 30th June, it goes without saying that our Ladies Evening celebrates the females of Chester. Get glammed up with these beautiful 9-carat White Gold Earrings from Chisholm Hunter (£165) or the Cobalt Flower Fascinator from Dorothy Perkins (£20)

Get the best odds for winning our best dressed

Each year, Grosvenor Shopping Centre holds the best dressed competition at Ladies Evening so having the perfect dress will make you stand out for all the right reasons. Make them green with envy in this H&M dress at a bargain price of just £59.99 or wow in this one shoulder Jacquard Prom Dress from Topshop (£75)


Be the scent-er of attention

Spend your day looking and smelling your best with the light and airy Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs. Perfect for your handbag to spritz on the go as you wait for the winners, this Eau de Toilette captivates notes of blackberry, fresh grapefruit and succulent pear and is just £42 from The Perfume Shop.
