With summer comes longer, lighter days, breezy maxi dresses, oversized shades and the game of polo. Often referred to as “the sport of kings” the annual Jeep Portsea Polo is a must-attend event on the 2013 summer calendar and like previous years, is set to be a day of glamorous partying. To ensure you are ready for this highly anticipated event, here are a few top tips to help you both pre and post polo…

Wedges – First things first, women should wear smart, flat shoes that won’t damage the grass and will allow partaking in the traditional divot stomping at halftime. But remember, flat does not mean you have to compromise on height. This tan wedge from Zomp fits the bill and will keep your limbs looking long.


Shade yourself in style – Don’t sweat outside in the sun all day. Be prepared and shield yourself from the scorching sun with a pretty parasol. You can pick one up from Impostors in Brunswick, Melbourne. This Lace Ivory Parasol has Portsea Polo written all over it.

Be prepared – While sipping on Veuve Clicquot might be more appealing than following the game, it is a smart idea to front up and be in the know. This article by Vanity Fair will give you an insightful run down of the game to ensure you are not left totally clueless on the day.

Tasteful travel – Skip the traffic and arrive at the polo in a style. Heli Serve are offering a thirty minute scenic tour along Mornington Penisula coastline to the Polo. Live the high life in the sky!

Say thank you – While you might stroll into the polo without a care in the world, it’s likely your hosts have been planning the event for weeks. Nothing will show your appreciation more than a handwritten note to say thanks. Notemaker can get you started…
