This Friday December 12, one of Adelaide’s most anticipated events Polo in the City, will take residence at Victoria Park.

Polo-enthusiasts and fashionistas alike will come together an afternoon of great food, wine and revel in the sport of royalty.

Meanwhile, those of us who haven’t been to the Polo before are left wondering – “what on earth do I wear?”

And while we all wish we could whip out a gorgeous brown and cream polka dot number à la Julia Roberts at the Polo in Pretty Woman, the dress code for such an event can often be more difficult to decipher than the Da Vinci Code.

The polo is a glamorous; it is preppy and certainly not casual (no jeans allowed!). However, it is a daytime event and no-one want to go too over the top and feel uncomfortable.

For all the fellas, chinos in slacks or shorts with a shirt and leather closed toe shoes or boat shoes is a perfect choice. Suits are also perfectly fine and will keep you looking sharp.

Ladies, a dress with suitable shoes, like a pair of wedges, will not only look classy but also leave the aerating of the grass to the gardeners. Midi skirts are also on trend and super chic.

And remember just because there are horses, doesn’t mean you need a fascinator, this is more of a hat event or you can just show off your beautiful hairstyle.

Sunglasses are also a must for everyone on the day to make sure you don’t miss a minute of play or the fashion.

So with your outfit is sorted and an abundance of fabulous food and delicious beverages, Polo in the City provides the perfect backdrop for a fun day of entertainment and one of the world’s oldest sports.

Tickets are still on sale, but they are selling out quickly so make sure to snap yours up fast!
