Wednesday 30 April 2014. Punchestown Races L to R: Triona O'Reilly, Newbridge, Louise Digney, Castleknock, Anne Larkin, Ardclough.

The weather might be a wash-out, but style isn't taking a backseat at the Punchestown Races.

From Jackie Lavin's impossibly chic white mac to one particularly brave woman's white floppy hat, this neutral took over the palette at Punchestown.

Ignoring the forecast for the week, spring had certainly sprung when it came to women's fashion choices.

It's all about monochrome, open toe heels and the all important fascinator hat.
