Although the Thursday is Ladies’ Day at Glorious Goodwood, the Friday hosts the ‘Best Dressed’ competition sponsored by L’Ormarins.
This requires outfits in the brand’s signature blue and white colours – which you might consider worth the effort, as the prize is an all-expenses paid trip for two to South Africa!
For a vintage style try the Alice dress – a ’50s inspired halter dress in baby blue duchess satin, with a white spot tulle overlay and a sweetheart neckline. Made to order by Louise Rose Couture, £175 from Etsy.
Go couture with Suzannah’s Obsession Ballerina Dress in Cinderella Blue. Price £2850. Made to order from Suzannah’s London boutique, the price includes a fitting service in order to determine the ideal length from midi to ballerina and to determine the perfect body skimming fit. Fabric is Italian silk gazar with silk lining. The dress has side pockets – perfect for your betting slips.
Boutique address is 3 New Quebec Street, London. W1H 7RE.
