5 Outfits to Wear to the Goodwood Revival this Year | Lindy Bop

The Goodwood Revival motorsport race meet takes place 13th – 15th September 2019 at The Goodwood Estate in West Sussex, England. This auspicious occasion welcomes you to transport back in time between 1948 and 1966 to the golden era of historic Goodwood Motor Circuit. The period theme to the weekend allows you to revive your wardrobe and go retro ahead of festivities.

I scream, you scream, we all scream …. What to wear to Goodwood Revival? Unsure of how to crack the Goodwood Revival dress code? As experts in vintage-inspired clothing, we offer styles from 1920s art deco silver screen to swing jiving 1950s and beyond. We’re here to give you a helping hand to get you set for the Best Dressed Competition and mingling with other bygone era enthusiasts.

If you’re unsure of what to wear to Goodwood Revival you needn’t look any further! We’ve got a complete guide of five showstopping Goodwood Revival outfits as modelled by vintage harmony singing group Elle & The Pocket Belles at horseracing Qatar “Glorious Goodwood” Festival in July.

If you take a leaf out of Elle & The Pocket Belles’ book, you too can double your outfits to both the July and September events. Switch out the hair fascinators and clutch bags, for a pillbox hat and Mary Jane heels, and you’ve achieved two looks with one dress; great value for money guaranteed!


You can’t rain on our parade in the rich jewel berry ‘Marguerite’ Jackie O Inspired Burgundy Pencil Dress & Jacket Twin Set. Whatever the weather throws your way you can keep on shining like the first lady of America who our classic twin set is inspired by, Jackie ‘O. A matching jacket is the perfect pre-A/W transition piece taking you from daytime to those chilly enclosure evenings.


Pretty in polka! Is there any other pattern that’s as quintessential retro as the polka dot? In a wrap dress style, our ‘Laura’ White Polka Dot Tea Dress is perfect no matter your shape or height. Cha-cha slide into the Goodwood Revival weekend with the flirty high low frill hem and flutter sleeves.


Powerhouse purple makes a fashion statement in our ‘Holly’ ¾ Sleeve Rockabilly Swing Dress in Purple Polka Dots. Complete your outfit with white accessories to make the white polka dot pop!
