Portsea Polo Style 2015

As the rain (thankfully) stayed far, far away and limoncello icy poles provided a dose of sunshine, the Portsea Polo went off swimmingly on the weekend. I was pleased to accept Peroni’s invitation to join them for the day and thus much of the serious style spotting below was conducted from

Portsea Polo 2014: Best Dressed

Move over preppy sweaters drapped over gents’ shoulders. Bowties are the latest trend at the Jeep Portsea Polo alongside fedoras for both sexes. The best people-spotting was found amid Peroni’s Italian-style piazza (including new Miu Miu face Bella Heathcote) and the best vantage point to watch the chukkas was the

DressCode: Portsea Polo 2013

A sneaky little outfit post from the 2013 Portsea Polo. Relaxing in the Peroni marquee at the end of the day… Skirt – a beautiful digital smoke print by Cylk Hot air balloon necklace – I’ve had this Elk pendant on my wishlist for ever. Finally it is mine for

Portsea Polo 2013

A funny thing happens when men dress for the polo. They seem to have the sudden urge to throw a preppy sweater around their shoulders like the living embodiment of a J.Crew catalogue. Men of Melbourne please note; you are not Chuck Bass. We stopped counting sweater-over-the-shoulder sightings at the Jeep Portsea

DressCode: Ponies & Polo

I don’t mind being a little whimsical when dressing up. So when I saw this limited edition horse print blouse I just had to wear it to the equine-centric polo. Happily it fits like a dream. The rest of the outfit just fell into place from there. Inspiration points in

Style Spy: Polo in the City 2012

Sunshine, champagne and the chicest of sports; I do fancy the polo. Melbourne’s leg of Polo in the City transformed Albert Park into a societal soiree this past weekend. Land Rover debuted their marquee in typically outdoors-y style. Their charming “picnic” was complete with hay-bales, checkered rugs and rustic wicker hampers. Woodford Reserve

When it comes to the dresscode the polo is far more liberal than the races, especially in Melbourne. I think you still want to dress consciously though but not like Julia Roberts –

Style Spy: Jeep Portsea Polo 2012

It seemed much of Melbourne moved to Portsea this past weekend as the polo stole the limelight from mansion-like holiday homes and the glittering seaside setting. When it came to the main event the Jeep team just managed to steal the game from rival Stella Artois. Fashion-wise it was the

Style Spy: Polo in the City 2011

Polo fashion is a girl’s best friend. There’s less pressure than the outfit woes of the Spring Racing Carnival and the footwear expectation of cute flats or espadrilles equals a comfortable day in the sun. Plus I’ll take any excuse to break a sundress out of my closet! We visited the Paspaley

What to wear to the Polo

In Melbourne during the summertime, three major polo tournaments (at Albert Park, Werribee and Portsea) spring to life.  This “sport of kings” is certainly a social one; a mixture of spring racing and music festival frivolity that has not yet descended into debauchery. Globally they may dress for the polo
