Confused about what to wear to the polo match you are going to attend this weekend? Drop that frown, as LA POLO brings to you the ultimate styling tip for your next match.
It’s not all speed, it’s not all harsh. It’s fancy, stylish and possesses class. This polo season let’s get you updated about the styling tips and fashion trends that will make you rule the show in the next polo match that you are going to attend.
Polo matches have always been star struck, for it has that class, glory and pious. And because Polo is all about luxury, you need to get dressed in the best outfit. Taking inspiration from our favourite stars, LA POLO brings to you the quirkiest style guide to doll you from tip-to-toe. Scroll down as we unveil the type of dress, shoes, bag, eye-wears, makeup, hair style and absolutely everything you need to wear for the ‘show-stopper’ look. So let’s get started.
The first thing you need to keep in mind is- The Dress. Spend a valuable time in figuring out the dress that will go well on you. What we have learnt from all the fashion icons like Meghan Markle, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor, Kate Middleton, Natalie Dormer to name a few, is the fact that choose a dress you are comfortable in. Style is all about comfort. Learn the art of blending fashion, style and comfort. Be it floral dresses, or fancy pants, all you got to have is the flare of getting it on with confidence. Did you notice the deep V-neck polka dotted knee-length dress Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra wore to Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic last year? If yes, we are sure you fell for the easy-breezy look she adapted for the day. She looked casual, elegant and dolled-up, all at the same time, and trust us, we loved her look. This year, Penelope Cruz too wore a polka-dot dress, and yet again, looked lovely. Polka-dot dress may seem a little old school to some people, but it is just as perfect as gold. It can never go wrong. The other dresses you can pull off for the polo match are the kind of dresses Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle wear. The dresses they choose are obviously royal; they are stiff, clean, plain and have solid colours.
They are as simple as it can get but still as elegant as you can imagine. Well, they are The Royals after all. The clue is sorted, all you need is a little niche style, a plain dress, yet sexy and elegant at the same time, which falls straight right on your body complimenting your figure. That was all for the dresses, but the lesson is not over yet. If you are someone who wants to add a pinch of uniqueness to the look, then here you are. Just get those white pants out from your wardrobe and take inspiration from Delfina Figueras and Natalie Dormer. Pair it with a casual shirt or a well fitted overcoat. Here you go, all set to turn the heads.
All said and done with the dress, let’s jump to The Footwear. Shoes or sneakers would be a big NO-NO. The most preferable footwear for such an event would be, first, the heels, and second, flat sandals. Dresses look great with a pair of block heels, for they tend to give you edgy height and they are comfortable instead of the killing heels. For the casual pant look you could jumble it with both the sorts, either the heels or the sandals. Heels will make you look all of more elegant, while sandals will restrict the look to casual and fun. The colour tone of black and nudes will rule the game for you. So now you know what pair you need to reserve for the big match.
We told you about how the Polo matches can be star struck events, and we don’t want you to look lesser than them. Hence, get the art of being natural, not too overdressed either way too underdressed. The hint is, don’t get painted as if attending a wedding, nor come pale as going for a funeral. Add the perfect blush to your cheeks and measured tint to your pouty lips. A little mascara, and a little blush, a flash of lipstick and manicured nails is all you need. And oh yes, the tempting fragrance is not to be neglected. Own the air and make their eyes move with your sense of balance for The Make-up you choose.
When going for a polo match you should be very smart in recognising the fact that the match is going to be played in the afternoon when the sun is at its peak. Thus, looking straight in the ground can get itchy if you forget your eye-wear. So the next important tip is The Eye-wear. Now the tip is, don’t keep it simple. Let it be bossy, quirky and smart. Cat-eye, oversized, oval, all of these are in fashion, and girls no, do not hesitate in trying them at all. Just know what your face type is and pick the quirkiest of all eyewear.
Lastly, the USP of Polo matches are, The Fascinators or more commonly recognised as The Polo Hats. Understanding the fact that it is all going to be in the sunny afternoon, the practical reason of wearing a hat is to prevent you from the harsh sun disturbing your vision. While the other reason which has got more originality is the fact that Polo is the sport of the kings. And with kings come royalty. Be Royal and get the look sorted with the fascinating fascinators.
Here you now know what you need to wear for your best look to the next polo match. Now, do not hesitate or say no to your friends when they ask you to watch polo match this season. Get rolling guys!!
