Style stakes: Glam looks to get you noticed at the races

Wrap up warm for the races at Down Royal with these elegant outfits

By Maureen Coleman

It might be cold outside, but the style stakes will still be high at Down Royal this Boxing Day. If you fancy a fashion flutter, get your glad rags on and make tracks for the racecourse for one of the biggest days of the year at Down Royal.

The adrenaline-fuelled event is certain to beat those Boxing Day blues. And with freezing temperatures forecast, we have put together some of our favourite winter warmers to turn up the heat this festive season.

To combine glamour and practicality, invest in a sweater dress or long-sleeved shift, teamed with a faux fur coat and knee-high boots, or make sure you're ahead of the fashion pack in a tweed coat with faux fur collar, worn with a stylish, faux fur hat.

Accessories can make an outfit so look out for fur-lined gloves, scarves or bags, and add a touch of festive bling with a beautiful piece of statement jewellery.
