We’ve covered what to wear (or not as the case maybe!) for the racing scene so in this feature the Country Fashion PR MirrorMePR team give their personal tips on what they recommend for enjoying the polo season.
Don’t dress like a polo player UNLESS you are a polo player, playing.
Overall the dress code over the years has become more and more relaxed, and for local grass roots polo matches, the dress code is much more relaxed than at bigger matches. Smart jeans, a quality tailored shirt or polo shirt, is a good combination. A blazer is a good fail safe and teamed with a Chelsea boot is a great look. White jeans are popular and don’t forget it’s all about the detail, so a smart leather belt to finish your look is imperative!
High heels look fabulous but you will spend much of your time sinking into the grass, so go for wedges which will give you the height and elegance without the inconvenience and when it comes to stomping in the divots you will be ahead of the game with more ‘sole’ to stomp! Of course, the great British weather can play havoc with your wardrobe choice but for us, watching at grass roots level, we love skinny jeans, tailored shirt, knee high boots and a blazer.
For the bigger level matches…
For the guys:
We love ‘suited and booted’ with a matching two piece but mix and match with a great single breasted jacket, and tailored trousers can work equally as well if the mix and match works! Again remember it’s in the simple details such as a great pair of boots or shoes, belts, gorgeous tailored shirt and skinny tie.
For the girls…
Dresses from maxi to mini(ish but not too short) are the general theme, but as far as styles go, anything goes as look as it’s feminine and fabulous. Choose what suits your personality and figure and use that as your starting point. Wedges are the answer for turf treading, but we did spy these clever little numbers that simply fit onto the heel of your shoe and could be the answer to that ‘sinking’ feeling!
