What She Wears: To a Game of Polo

It’s not often that one gets invited to a posh garden party, but if there’s one event we love checking out the summer style outfits at, it’s the polo.

We don’t see much  of it in Ireland but there’s one event in New York and a few in London each year, where the fash pack and celebrities turn up in their garden party finery.

It’s a difficult one to dress for considering that it’s an occasion where dressing up without looking too dressy is the order of the day. Polo is more relaxed than a day out at the races but there are lots of things to think of when planning your outfit such as:

 – grass . For the ladies it’s hard to wear high heels so better for the ladies to opt for wedges. For the men, watch out for those grass stains on your bright suit or slacks.

 – sun. If the sun comes out, flattering sunglasses will make your outfit and SPF is a must-have so as not to turn red on the day. Floppy Hats or fedoras make a great statement too.

champagne. Will there be food there or is it a case of liquid lunch only?

We’ve taken some inspiration from this weekend’s outfits at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Liberty State Park New York where polo enthusiasts, Hollywood actors and fashionistas enjoyed a sunny day out and got through over 3,000 thousands of bottles of Veuve Clicquot champagne no less.

Style highlights included Julia Restoin-Roitfeld’s bejewelled floral dress (D&G), Alek Wek’s graphic black and white striped dress teamed with a large sun hat and Ashley Olsen’s boho kimono dress.

Guests were dressed to impress in classic polo style—summer whites, summer florals, pastels, and dapper suits for men (Matthew McConaughey’s three piece white suit worn with brogues was particularly dashing).
