Men’s Trends for a Glorious Goodwood Garden Party

Linen suits and panama hats are synonymous with Glorious Goodwood. However, as this year the racing is behind closed doors we predict the dress code to your own Goodwood garden party event will be more relaxed and colourful.


Start building your outfit with a statement shirt. This season the Cuban collared short-sleeved shirt is all the dapper rage and is a welcome style for warm weather.

Reiss Kadiz shirt shows a multicoloured print can be easy on the eye and still make a statement. In soft muted hues of blue, orange and green trimmed with white piping. Price £85.

The Cuban collar makes an ideal frame to show off your jewellery especially if the top buttons are undone. Go for layering – the on trend way to wear necklaces and pendants. Create your own look or buy one already layered. Topman’s silver look layered necklace  with amber coloured fist and snake pendants. Price £16.

Resist neutral and opt for a pair of colourful chino shorts to brighten up the day. We have chosen Joules Pale Yellow shorts but they also offer pale blue, light brown, cream and medium rose.

Price £39.95 in 100% cotton.

Buckle up with the softer fabric version belts. Your waist will appreciate it as you relax on the grass and tuck in to those snacks and drinks.  Tommy Jeans’ fast clip on belt is available in zesty orange or classic dark blue. Price £44 from Yoox.

One sartorial Goodwood item we cannot bear to part with is the Panama hat. Whether you dress smart or casual, it completes an outfit. Plus it will shade you from the sun. 

Paul Smith straw trilby style panama in sun kissed pale orange. Price £129 via Yoox.

Another essential item is a pair of sunglasses. Look cool in DSquared2 ochre shades with green lens.

Price £104 via Yoox.

Kick off your smart shoes and slip into a pair of comfortable Tom’s canvas espadrilles  Your feet will love you for it. Price £51 via Yoox, in bright ochre (or Azure) with Riviera striped lining.

Accessorize with a three in one bangle from Les Georgettes

In matte ruthenium finished, the Bandeau bracelet can be worn by itself or with a reversible camel/teal blue leather insert. Price £69.

Make regular checks with your watch to ensure you don’t miss any of the races or just use it as excuse to keep on admiring this statement orange watch from Gucci Gucci Price £268 via Yoox.
