It was a riot of colour as revellers turned out for Ladies’ Day at Glorious Goodwood.

Strappy dresses, printed suits and eye-catching hats were all on display as well-heeled women descended on the racecourse in Chichester, West Sussex.

The five-day meet, a highlight of the racing calendar, gives well-heeled fans an excuse to get dressed up in their finery for a day of action.

The famous racing event attracts guests from up and down the country and is considered one of the more relaxed meetings when it comes to the dress code, but that didn’t stop ladies from pulling out all the sartorial stops.

Ladies’ Day kicks off with the ladies’ amateur jockey race – proceeds of which have previously gone towards supporting charities dedicated to women and children.

The Glorious Goodwood dress code celebrates ‘quintessentially British style’ which can be anything from high fashion to a more relaxed look.

In particular, the festival’s website notes the event is known for linen suits, Panama hats and chic dresses.

One woman made sure to turn heads in an oversized feathered sunhat, which she wore with a figure-hugging red dress. Elsewhere, two revellers brought a splash of summer sunshine to proceedings in complimentary yellow and blue ensembles.

Not to be outdone, male racegoers also dusted off their favourite summer outfits. One gentleman cut a sharp figure in pink trousers, a floral blazer and green tie.

After a year out in 2020 due to the Covid lockdown, the Goodwood Festival returned in 2021 to welcome racegoers back to the Chichester circuit.
