Glorious Goodwood Races - Glamorous Outfit no 1 is the Maxi with Flat Sandals

Glorious Goodwood dress code for ladies is a much more relaxed affair than the formal Royal Ascot and quite simple – jeans or shorts are not permitted. They’d like you to dress smartly and a hat is encouraged but not obligatory.Other than that there are no rules on the length of your skirt or the width of your straps.
 They do advise that stiletto heels are not recommended due to the terrain and decking areas, but that is more for your comfort than a dress code. If you do decide to follow their recommendation, here is the first outfit on how to be gloriously glamorous without the stilettos:

Maxi dresses actually look better without the stiletto heel due to their laid back bohemian style or classic Greek goddess look.
Here the Monsoon Miranda dip dye maxi dress has been teamed with flat sandals. The maxi is in marine hued silk chiffon embellished with iridescent sequins, beads and crystals.  The wrap style necklace and waist cinching band keep this maxi high up in the glamour stakes. Was £229 now £113.50
The flat Imola sandals are easy on the eye as well as the feet. Embellished in silver and blue beads. Price £29
Accessorised with Luisa clutch bag in cobalt blue satin with large black gem fastening. Was £35 now £17.50 and Reggio stretch bracelet was £12 now £6

Hats are not compulsory but they do complete a racing day outfit. Maxi dresses look boho chic with wide brim hats plus if the weather stays hot, it will shade you from that glorious but blazing sun. The off white Tangier large brim hat is of fine paper straw with handmade silk ribbon trim in blue and silver. A small metallic ornament with a crystal adorns the centre of the large bow.
Only one left!!!  Price £171

Accessorise with Christian Lacroix sunglasses price from £155. Available directly through Mondottica who licences and makes the sunglasses. Just call on freephone 08007831372 and quote model CL901000958 for more details.
