There may be horse races at this weekend’s Deighton Cup, but let’s be honest: your actual reason for going is to marvel at the crowd’s sophisticated style. From fascinator hats, fedoras and silk bow ties, to elegant summer dresses and patterned three-piece suits, people will be donning their classy, royalty-inspired Saturday best. So before you make your way to Hastings Racecourse, take a peek at the photos below, snapped during the 2015 event, for some good ol’ fashioned (pardon the pun) style inspiration.
