For those not sure what to wear Great British Racing have team up with Made in Chelsea star and Queen of the I’m a Celebrity jungle Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo to share some of her top fashion tips.
“I absolutely love horse racing,” said Georgia.
“It is one of the few occasions us ladies, and men for that matter, can dress up and enjoy a great day or night of sport.
“It is such a fun day, whether you’re with friends or family, there is so much to do, most of all seeing all the beautiful horses. I would encourage everyone to attend their local race meeting this summer – you will not be disappointed.
“I think the most important thing is to have fun with your outfit, let your personality shine through and don’t be afraid to be bold.
“I am a really big fan of wearing a jumpsuit to the races. They are a perfect alternative to a dress, and always looks fresh and smart at the same time.”
Alex Eade, general manager of Goodwood Racecourse, said: “The Qatar Goodwood Festival is a week-long garden party, with a perfect combination of top-level racing, fine food and drink and elegant fashion.
