Picture this: watching the famed Henley Regatta from the picturesque banks of the River Thames, champagne in hand. An image this idyllic requires an equally excellent outfit. Henley’s dress code is a little less formal than Ascot’s however hemlines must be below the knee. Nod to the nautical in a pretty stripe; the fit and flare shape of the Sofia Stripe dress makes it the perfect summer event option. As much as we wish sun was a guarantee, don’t be caught off guard. A lightweight jacket or scarf is a good option should temperatures drop.

To quote their dress code, “an effortless dress that feels fun but chic is the order of the day”. Dress codes are not quite as strict as other events of the season however this doesn’t mean Goodwood is a casual affair. Ladies Day in particular is very much a dress to impress occasion so use the opportunity to showcase a fun colour or style. The cut out back detailing on the Watercolour Haze dress is our top pick. Choose something simpler, such as the Megan Crepe dress if you’re planning for a hat or fascinator to take centre stage.
