It’s that gorgeous time of the year again, where the well known prestigious event is only days away… POLO IN THE CITY SYDNEY 2016!
I am so thrilled to be attending LANDROVER POLO IN THE CITY Sydney this year, as a VIP Media Guest again… and of course the first thing that came to mind, is ‘What will I wear?’
POLO FASHION, is the ever so glamorous and chic sister to Racing Fashion and the approach of what to wear, should be the same.
FOR THE LADIES…
Think understated elegance, with delicate fabrics and styles.
Lace in ivory, cream or neutral colours, pops of colour and prints, and a touch of monochrome are some of the go to options.
STYLES CAN INCLUDE… soft tailored lines, playsuits, jumpsuits, long gorgeous printed maxi dresses, an easy shift dress, a boho inspired, off the shoulder top and maxi skirt and of course, lets not forget the pant of the season.. a gorgeous delicate culotte!
Polo Fashion, is all about comfort but that shouldn’t affect the glamour!
Polo is NOT the day, to be wearing your latest stiletto purchase. So please opt for a gorgeous leather sandal, comfortable wedge or chunky heel option.
Sunglasses and a decent size handbag is a MUST…Head wear is not paramount, however a wide brim hat will not only protect you from a day in the sun, but also add some glamour to your outfit! Please NO fascinators!
Jewellery should be complementary to your gorgeous day outfit. Thin delicate pieces, in rose gold, gold or silver are a fashion must have at the moment. However if you’re drawn to more of a statement piece, then opt for it in either gorgeous silver, gold. stones or pops of colour and leave the sparkly diamonte statements pieces at home.
HAIR AND MAKEUP…
Hair and makeup should be kept natural, but a pop of lip colour can never go astray!
FOR THE MEN…
Just like the ladies, Polo Fashion for men should be approached in the same way! A smart casual look is essential, there is no need to suit up!
The Polo is an opportunity to show off a little more of your personality. Have fun with pops of colour, print on print and add a point of difference.
STYLES CAN INCLUDE… A coloured printed shirt, or pop of colour, tailored pant, chino pants or shorts are a great option. A blazer with a stylish pocket square, is always a great way to complete an outfit. But please keep in mind the weather, if it’s going to be too hot, a shirt is suffice.
There is no requirements to wear a tie, but if you prefer the look then go ahead. A bow tie could always be fun too!
Smart leather or suede brogues or loafers are a great choice, or a leather boat shoe. Please do not wear thongs!
Once again, sunglasses should be a must. And for the men wanting that added protection or style, a woven or felt fedora, is a great addition!
Here’s some fashion inspiration from last year..
