Goodwood Revival Hats

In preparation for Goodwood Revival which takes place on 12th - 14th September we have gathered some of best vintage hats which are most appropriate for the occasion. 

Since 1998 the Goodwood circuit have hosted an annual three day festival. The event features many vintage racing cars & motorcycles which would have once raced at the course. To coincide with the vintage theme the guests go to great lengths to dress in period style. As a result the event has an incredible nostalgic atmosphere.   

During the war some of the only items that weren't rationed were hat materials, so during this time feathers, flowers and veiling were very popular in hat designs. 

This pastel pink disc shaped hat is perfect accessory to compliment the traditional victory roll hairstyle. Finished with a subtle tone flower detail this piece will add a touch of femininity to any outfit. 

Actress Emerald Fennell is photographed here wearing a blue tone, feather filled, vintage inspired hat. To add an element of fun she has teamed it with a dress from her sister Coco Fennell's collection called 'Play your Cards Right'. 

These felt hats have a classic, sophisticated style that would suit a tailored vintage outfit well. With feather and fabric ruffle detailing they are typical of retro styling. Shown here at a local fashion show styled with a Katherine Hooker coat, these felt hats present a more structured, refined style. 

We have many other vintage inspired hats in a vareity of styles available in store. To arrange an appoinment you can call the store on 01873 855923.
