In between the high-stakes glamour (pardon the pun) of the racing season and festivity of December’s parties is that rare event that is neither casual, nor formal. Polo. In this case, Paspaley Polo In The City, to be held in Melbourne at Albert Park on Saturday 3rd December. Today’s blog by The Laneway gives you some style pointers on how to be ‘best on field’ amongst all those strapping Polo players and ponies. Oh my!

What to wear, and how to style? Unlike the races which calls for high-maintenance millinery and robust hair, polo fashion is best described as somewhere between race fashion and a music festival. Not too relaxed – not too stuffy. Just right! In the promotional image above, Esther Anderson wears a terracotta Kirrily Johnston grecian-style gown, and has accompanied it with flowing, loose locks.

Jess and Ashley Hart strike the perfect balance, with casual fedoras (sun smart, too!), ocean-fresh wavy hair and flowing maxi-dresses.

Rebecca Judd (nee Twigley) at Polo in a slightly more embellished outfit, with cutout and hardware detail. Again, easy natural hair with body and wave is the order of this more casual day with the ponies.

It is rumoured that this dashing fellow named Nacho Figueras (you might remember his ‘blue steel’ stare from the Ralph Lauren Polo campaign) will be attending Paspaley Polo In The City. Reason enough to attend in style, we dare say!
