Considered a more relaxed raceday occasion compared with Royal Ascot, the look at Glorious Goodwood is still stylish.
Think more along the lines of dressing for an elegant summer garden party where Pimms (or tea) is the drink of the day.
Dress code: In the Richmond Enclosure ladies should dress smartly and are encouraged to wear hats. Jeans, shorts and fancy dress are not allowed in any of the enclosures.
Our Firm Fashion Trend Favourites: Botanical Florals and Blazing Yellow.
From the vintage ditsy florals to the exotic tropical prints, the floral trend is hot this year and all the prints are ideal for the summer garden party look. Juxtaposing with the tailored fit and flare style, the wild botanical garden print ensures this CCFashion dress is not too formal. From the Petite range, the skirt falls to the knee but can be worn on taller women who prefer a shorter skirt length. Border print cotton sateen dress. Price £129. Available here.
If you have a slim waist, then flaunt it with a skinny belt. Pick out a colour from the floral print such as this coral orange Ted Baker Skinny leather belt with centred bow detail. Price £59 available from House of Fraser. Available here.
Due to the terrain and areas of decking, stilettos are not recommended. Nine West’s Eldeline High Heel platform sandal offers a thicker heel without losing any height. The cork platform and the leather lizard print help keep the overall look informal but still chic. Choose coral orange to match the floral print and belt. Price £115 available from House of Fraser. Available here.
The Goodwood tradition for the men is to wear a panama hat so why not join them with your own? The Calypso Ochre has a band of colourful beads to tie in with the dress. Price £66. These panamas are made in Ecuador (surprisingly where the Panama hat originated and are still made today) by local weavers under Fair Trade working practices. Available here.
Accessorise with these Premium Green Flower stud earrings by Freedom at Topshop. The green cubic zirconia earrings are 2cm in width. Price £25. Available here.
For a sunny day wear a pair of yellow sunglasses. Guess 7230 sunglasses come in transparent yellow; more subtle and sophisticated than a block colour. The elegant cat-eye shape corners with snake skin printed metal arms. Price £81. Available online from Sunglasses Shop.
And keep that yellow blazing with the Coccinelle small cross body bag. Price £170. Available from House of Fraser.
