Power suits are making a comeback just in time for the races season. Find gorgeous blazers from the likes of Jigsaw, Mint Velvet, Pinko and more. The traditional fascinator pairs perfectly with this look. Elevate your outfit even more with larger shoulder pads, and don't forget to add some jewellery.

You really can't go wrong with a classic, well-tailored suit. But what colour will you go for? We'd recommend a softer colour, like pale blue, paired with a dark contrasting waist coat.
