Being a toff for a day is half the fun of Epsom and Henley, but unless you're a massive spanner, you're not going to spend the kind of money they do on naff shirts and tacky red trousers, here's how to get the look in London on the cheap.

Posh Looks | Girls

Copy Kate

Epsom is the place for fabulous fascinators, glamorous day dresses and co-ordinated accessories. Usually personal tailors, Chanel handbags and Manolo Blahnik heels fit the bill, but the high street has caught up. Here’s how to copy Kate for the day:

Head to New Look for a simple white sundress with a full skirt

Look to M&S for some quintessentially Kate footwear

Bag a bargain with a cream blazer from Boohoo

Then check out Ebay for fabulous fascinators

High class hippy


For some polo in the park, do some pseudo-dressing down a la Amber Le Bon. Here's how to get her hippy look:

Wimbledon wife

Kim Sears, Murray's most loyal Wimbledon spectator has the dishevilled posh girl look nailed. Scary mother-in-law and pained expression optional.

Posh Looks | Boys

Gentlemen gambler

For Royal Ascot and the like, only a top hat a tails will do.  Second hand or hiring is the best bet, and if you're planning on heading to a few of these shindigs over the summer the latter is perhaps the winner. 

How about this designer tail coat suit jacket from Oxfam online. Think of it as a bargain investment

The hat must be high, but colour, brim and fabric allow you to get creative. There are plenty of options on ebay.

Sailing regattas seem like a chance for public school boys to slip back into their old uniforms, but you don't need an Eton education to fit in

A straw trilby won't cut it; splash out on this boater hat from Debenhams
