Ladies, get ‘Race Ready’ with Millbry Hill …
As we now find ourselves in the midst of October, there is no debate that our long hot summer has come to an end.
However, it is not all doom and gloom. This change means only one thing; the start of the Jump Season. National Hunt has a monumental following, this including horse racing fans, horse racing punters, and those looking for a good day out. But, whatever the reason may be, and which ever category you fall into, one question remains the same…’What to wear?’
Coats and Jackets
Our top picks for a show stopping jacket are first up. Make sure that your stylishly warm and cosy in one of our four gorgeous coats and jackets. They are the centrepiece of your entire outfit afterall!
First up is the Barbour Ladies Dene Wax Jacket (£229.00). This beautiful waxed cotton coat is perfect for the lady who likes a stylish but more casual look. Secondly we have the brand new Holland Cooper Aspen Jacket (£349.00). This jacket oozes class and fashion at its finest. Coming in at third place is the ever stylish Holland Cooper Ladies Tweed & Suede Collar Wrap at £199.00. Team this up with your favourite dress jeans and some Fairfax & Favour boots and you’ll look effortlessly chic! Finally we have the Schoffel Ladies Lilymere Jacket in Navy at £399.95. Its more of a classic style this jacket suits all and is extensively adaptable, perfect for more occasions than just the races.
Extra Layers and Jumpers
Layering up is key to fend off the wintery chill. So, we’ve selected some of our absolute must haves that will keep you snug at the races.
The Holland Cooper Ladies Portland Chunky Cable Jumper is a new piece in this season that we are all obsessed with. It comes in at £125.00 and can be worn with skirts and jeans for a beautifully dressed appearance. Next up is the Joules Ladies Poppy Round Neck Jumper at £49.95. It comes in an array of colours and we guarantee you’ll find one to match your outfit. Our third pick is the Barbour Ladies Pendle Roll Collar which comes in at £74.95. Its an understated design that can be dressed up or down at ease. Perfect for many different occasions! Finally in joint fourth place we have the Schoffel Ladies Lyndon Fleece Gilet (£139.95) and the Schoffel Ladies Lambswool Aerobloc Gilet (£169.95). We believe Schoffel Gilets are the perfect layer to go under your jacket for those especially cold days, or alternatively when the sun comes out and you need to drop a layer.
Practicality comes first and foremost as the majority of your day will be spent on your feet. We suggest you opt for a sturdier looking boot, rather than a stiletto heel. We’ve picked out these finalists as our best rated foot choice for the Jump season.
The Fairfax & Favour Ladies Amira Over The Knee Boot’s (£415.00) are our first pick. They are elegant and would look great with your favourite jeans and cape.

Finally we have the Le Chameau Ladies Jameson Quilted Boot‘s (£375.00). They are the new must-have country-boots of this season.
Hats & Headbands
Hats are not a necessity, but are a popular option. The main objective to wearing a hat is for added warmth, or making it the centre piece of your outfit. We think these statement hats and headbands are fab, and think you should work your outfit around them…rumour has it hats are the revolutionary accessory!
We’re going to start our fave picks this time with the Hicks & Brown Melford Trilby (£95.00). Its perfect for all weather conditions, and totally versatile. Everybody loves a bobble hat … FACT.
