What to wear to the polo: the 5 unspoken style rules
No horsing around
Rule one: the polo is strictly a fascinator-free zone. We're not at the races anymore (and even then, proceed with caution). The key to polo dressing is looking relaxed yet chic - think crisp white day dresses and natty straw hats. Who better to school us all in Polo Style 101 than Range Rover ambassador and all-round glamazon Jennifer Hawkins? If you're heading to the Land Rover Polo in the City at Centennial Park this weekend, here are her top tips:
Rule one: A sophisticated, feminine approach to dressing for the polo is the way to go - think a mix between dressing for a summer picnic with your friends and elegant smart casual.
Rule two: It's important to dress for the warm weather so floating summer looks and maxi dresses are a great option. Crisp, clean outfits like a gorgeous tailored suit also work well if you're going for an understated look.

Rule three: The best tip I can give you is to steer clear of stilettos or you'll spend the entire day sinking into the lawn! Glamorous flats are a great option or a gorgeous pair of wedges.
Rule four: Accessories at the polo are key, and a bold pair of sunglasses can be a fun way to make a statement. I'm also a big fan of a gorgeous wide-brimmed hat. It's important not to go for headwear that's overly fussy - something that's a little more casual and protects you from the sun is perfect.
