Or check out the timeless fashion advice we got from THE ICONIC's womenswear buyer, Lucienne Whealing.

1. Wear soft pink hues

"We are spoilt for choice this season with such a variety of trends for Spring Racing. My favourites are the all white look, graphic prints and black and white monochrome. The 70s trend is an overarching trend of the season so you will see crochet and broderie anglaise trims, block prints and fluid bell sleeves coming through. Keep an eye out for soft pastels as well. Soft pink hues are really strong, and look like they will stay around ‘til Winter."

Brands to look out for: Shona Joy, Talulah, Lover the Label and Camilla and Marc

2. Do: Take a scarf

"Do: Always remember the races are a day event, so leave the short skirts and sequins for the nightclub and try to keep dress lengths just above the knee, or lower, for an effortless chic look. Hemline trends are really varied from ruffles, handkerchief and asymmetric, so there is a look for everyone.

Do: Keep makeup bright and fresh. I love the look of a bold coral red lip against a fresh dewy complexion.

Do: Take a scarf or light wrap just in case the weather turns.

And lastly, don’t: Get too tipsy! The sun, champagne and a flutter on number three can be a fabulous cocktail, but there is nothing glam about stumbling into a cab home."

3. Keep comfy in block heels

"Finding the perfect pair of shoes for race carnival is so important for the comfort of the long day standing, as well as navigating the grass fields.

My tip is to go for a mid block heel sandal that won't see you sink into the grass, and will keep you looking chic and comfortable all day. The block heel has definitely made a come back thanks to the likes of Isabel Marant, Chloe, Givenchy and Prada, so it is the style of choice for the season!"

Get the look from brands such as Tony Bianco, Senso, Wittner and Spurr.

4. Don a natural fedora

"There are some great alternatives to the fascinator coming through this season, making it more fun than ever to experiment and try new ways to accessorise!

For a more fashion forward take, try the classic boater or natural fedora to complete a nautical or monochrome look. Try brands Morgan & Taylor and Tigerlily.

Novelty headpieces are also really trending and fast becoming a favourite for celebrities and bloggers this race season. Crowns, teddy ears and wings in intricate designs are the hottest styles. Look to Studio Aniss for the best selection."

5. Avoid midriff

"Definitely no midriff! Often there will be a strict dress code banning bare midriffs for the key race days. If you want to show a bit of skin, try the newest trend coming through offering a more demure, peekaboo look of subtle cut outs, low back profiles and high asymmetrical skirt splits."

Look to Nicholas, Camilla and Marc and By Johnny for the best in this trend.
