This weekend marks the return of the Longines Masters Hong Kong, one of the biggest equestrian sporting events of the year.
The horses have touched down in Hong Kong, the riders are readying for the challenges ahead of them at AsiaWorld-Expo, and we’re getting into the spirit by channelling an equestrian-chic wardrobe for the weekend.
Check out our top picks of luxurious leather accessories and stable-approved sportswear.
Chloé Saddle Bag
From cross-body bags to petite clutches, Chloé is catering to every need this season with its gorgeous collection of saddle bags. It’s tricky to choose a favourite, but the calfskin suede Nile bracelet bag is the perfect ringside accessory.
Leather Boots by Valentino
We wouldn’t recommend actually getting on a horse in these, but these Valentino tan leather boots are perfect for the spectator stands. Using pyrography etching, the subtle Aztec iconography and rainbow pull tabs are a stunning style detail.
Cavalleria Toscana Jodhpurs
Embrace the sporting spirit by wearing the most quintessential of equestrian fashion: these white jodhpurs from Cavalleria Toscana are striking with dark boots and jacket.
This chocolate-brown leather jacket from Longchamp is fitted for an elegant cut, and the blue stripes define the waist.
Lacoste Polo Shirt
This mid-sleeve Lacoste polo comes in five colours, and is a versatile essential to wear with jeans, jodhpurs or a fit-and-flare skirt.
Hermès Leather Bracelet
For a more subtle horse-themed fashion tribute, Hermès tan leather bracelets with stud detail from the spring/summer 2017 collection are a stylish way to spruce up your wild west wardrobe.
Miasuki Stone Coat
It’s still chilly outside, so make sure to wrap up for the event. This coat from renowned equestrian brand Miasuki is a strikingly stylish statement for riders and spectators alike.
Rag and Bone Indigo Denim Shirt
For a more casual approach to equestrian fashion, try the western double denim look with this indigo shirt from Rag and Bone. A pair of jeans and ankle boots are the ideal accompaniment to complete this look.
Tom Ford Waist Belt
Matched with high-waisted trousers, a skirt or dress, this ombré leather belt in black or tan from Tom Ford instantly makes an outfit ranch-ready.
Cavalleria Toscana Bomber Jacket
Bomber jackets have been hot property for the last fashion season, and show no signs of disappearing. Cavalleria Toscana offers an equestrian twist with a lightweight weather-proof jacket for on and off the saddle.
