Holding an enriched history of as old as 200 years, Goodwood Racecourse situated along the scenic beauty of the breath-taking Sussex is all prepped up for the ultimate race, party, food, and drinks. But before you begin to pack your packs and get going to this speed festival, LA POLO brings to you a detailed guide for the dress code that you need to follow at the Qatar Goodwood Festival, but before jumping on to the dress code guide, we unfold for you the essential pointers that you need to take care of before going to the Qatar Goodwood Festival.
Ladies you are going to be the attention and talk of the town for any given event or festival. And when you are going to be the part of the Qatar Goodwood Festival, you must keep in mind that it is a big deal and you need to make sure that you have your best outfit on combined with the ideal accessories. Ladies, you intelligently need to take care of the four main essentials namely, the dress; the shoes; the accessories; and the make-up and hair.
To begin with let’s start by elaborating over the dress. You need to be sure that the dress you choose is in the trend. It could be floral from top-to-toe or stripped or even dominated by wallpaper prints. You can also choose from pastels to soft fabric, but the key is to be comfortable yet trendy. The next key to take care of is the shoes. It a racecourse it is always advised to keep your stilettos back home. As the ground is going to be soft, it is evident that you might just slip or twist your ankle. It is better to care first that cry later. Thus, it is highly recommended to instead have kitten heels which are strongly making a comeback into the fashion industry. Also while following the dress code, make sure that you add a little fun colours into your outfit. The similar could be done with the shoes. A little colour or some love for stripes can be easily shown here as well. Next up in the list of the dress code to follow is the accessories. At the Qatar Goodwood Festival, the favorite of all accessories is the Panama hat. But if you are too conscious to wear a hat and are not sure if you could carry it then try playing up your look with a headband or hairpins. Try creating a strong statement with these simple accessories. The last thing that you need to take care while following the dress code is the make-up and hair. Since the Qatar Goodwood Festival is a day event, try to keep your make-up light and simple. A punch of light pink lips, a little mascara on the eyes and the right about of dusty rouge on the cheeks is sure to give you a fresh look for all-day-long. What is difficult is when it comes to hair. You can not predict the weather but could only hope it to be on your side. But you would still not want to take the risk of playing too much that it damps your hair with grease or blow it all on your face. The best is to tie in softly in a low bun. And you are all ready according to the dress code to go and rock the show.
You need to match the game up with your counterparts. They have a whole range of things to play up, while you lack in that domain, we have got the things sorted you in just three easy steps. All you need to take care of is that of the tie; the chinos; and the socks.
To begin with let’s start with the tie. Keep the tie a lot more stylish that your professional ties. It needs to stand out from all the shades of blacks and greys, while also adding a punch of niche colour to you whole outfit. Avoid solid ties and go with the one which has a lot more texture added to them. One of these could be the knitted silk tie. After you are done upright with the game of the tie, the next target thing in your outfit is the chinos. Go for the best and the smartest chinos that you possess. Nothing short than this would upgrade your game for the dress code of the Qatar Goodwood Festival. Playing with this board of dress code could be tricky but solving them always has a hint. One key thing that you need to take care of while choosing the perfect chinos for the day is that the length and the cut of the chinos must be at just the right place. One inch less or one inch more can completely shatter the whole look. The last thing on our list while choosing your dress code is the socks. While it is always advised to wear contrasting socks as per the colour of the pants, but at Qatar Goodwood Festival we would want you to cheat with your professional dress code and go for the dress code of the festival itself.
Thus, choose a pair of stand-out socks. When sorted with all of this move on to choosing your outfits depending on the enclosure for the Qatar Goodwood Festival.
