I am attending a polo match tomorrow in Newport and I have no clue what to wear. I have many dresses, most of them form fitting. I do not know what is appropriate to wear though.
–Closet Full of Clothes and Nothing to Wear, Newport
Hold your horses. Polo match dress code is not that complicated. Think about comfort and protecting your face from the hot sun. You may find yourself picnicking at your tailgate, so wearing a dress that is not too short is more comfortable sitting on the grass. Find a mid-calf length dress in your closet.
If you have a light summer denim blouse, wear it over the dress and belt it. Top off the look with a small brimmed straw hat that isn’t too fussy or prissy — but no fake flowers on the brim.
Most importantly, if you wear heels, wear cork wedges. Spiked heels will catch you up by digging into the turf and we wouldn’t want you to trip over you feet. Here is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge above at a polo match wearing wedges and denim.
Here are some looks you may be able to pull together from your full closet:
Lastly, our very favorite most recent polo match photo of fashion icon Olivia Palermo.
