The much anticipated British summertime is renowned and revered for its wealth of sporting events, including one of the nation’s favourite past times of horse racing. Not only do we delight in the excitement of cheering on the sleek thoroughbreds thunderously galloping past, but equally important is taking part in the pleasure of viewing the impressive range of fashions that are on parade throughout the large number of race meetings.

Next weekend welcomes the start of the Investec Epsom Derby, with Ladies Day starting on the Friday, while Royal Ascot, revered as Britain’s most valuable race meeting, takes place on the 14th – 18th of June.

With the weather set to be fair, the fashion stakes will most definitely be set to high, with the sidelines brimming with glamorous racegoers decked out in designer labels and magnificent millinery.

Whilst high heels will be the order for the day, don’t let your fashion stakes down by struggling through the searing pain in the balls of your feet once you’ve strutted your stuff. Be smart and pack a pair of Cocorose London’s foldable shoes to change into once your heels start to pinch. With a range of glamorous styles to choose from, you’ll ensure that your style stakes are kept high and your heels safely and subtly stored in the complimentary black satin shoulder bag.
