What to wear to Polo in the Park
There are so many exciting events on our guide to the British Summer Social Season and Chestertons Polo in the Park is fast approaching. Polo in the Park takes place at the beginning of June and this is a popular event for those based in London.
What to wear to Polo in the Park depends largely on the weather and while the event has been blessed with sunshine over the years, there have also been some very wet days indeed. However, a wash out fixture with full blown rain would be rather unlucky and there are plenty of places to escape a shower. When the sun shines you will want to make the most of the champagne garden.
When you are deciding what to wear to Polo in the Park there are a few basic rules to follow. For example, we suggest that ladies opt for wedges or flat shoes rather than heels. You will definitely want to partake in some divot stomping, which is a long-standing half-time tradition where guests are invited to help even out the turf with their feet.
While you should probably steer clear of heels, this doesn’t mean that the polo isn’t glamorous. In fact, Chestertons Polo in the Park is a very chic and sophisticated occasion. When you are picking what to wear to Polo in the Park we suggest that you think about pretty summer dresses or tailored trousers with a chic blouse. Large sunglasses are also essential and many will wear these inside the champagne bar, even if it rains!

What to Wear to Polo in the Park
We’ve taken our outfit inspiration from Net-a-Porter this year
Style Tip: Pretty summer dresses work well but they should be a suitable length and acceptable for a day time event. Wedges are definitely advised rather than high heels.
Style Tip: You can also embrace a boho vibe. This is a popular look for many and suits chunky heels or flats.
Style Tip: On a warm day, shorts will look great, especially if they have a unique design. A hat will protect you from the rays, should the sun decide to shine and a trilby is a welcome fashion accessory at the polo.
Style Tip: Polo is an elegant occasion but you should also think about being comfortable because it is a long day.
Style Tip: Summer tops should be relatively smart
Style Tip: The white dress never fails for summer events and you can brighten it up with accessories of your choice.
