Tis the season to frock up and the inaugural Polo & Provedores brings a very big reward for best dressed – a $5000 diamond from Diamonds Of Distinction! Fashion Editor Carlie Wacker shares her guide to snaring the shiny prize. 

With an eye on the diamond many serious Fashions On The Field players will be amping up their polo pomp for Polo & Provedores on 5 November. For those that need a little nudge in the right directions here are a few handy hints when planning your outfit from the top down: 


There is a stylish practicality to polo fashion. The wide brimmed straw hat, fedora or fancy bucket hat are high on
the list of good head gear – even a visor or crown can wow. Or make your mane the main game with a stylish hair style!

Fascinators are out; hats and hair are IN! 


Ladies: Maxi or midi dresses replace anything skin-tight and glitzy and mini dresses and skirts should be flowy, not fitted. Florals and feminine block colours are key. Flowing and comfortable dresses are the perfect match for a wide brimmed hat; while a suit needs a smaller brimmed hat, visor or fabulous hairstyle. 

The vibe is classy, not clingy.

Gents: Pants (please), button up shirts and blazers are perfect. Avoid denim jeans unless white. Be sun smart and stylish. Add pops of colour with pocket squares but it’s bye-bye to the tie. Open shirts work and for hats, be Fedora-able or a Panama-maniac 

Stay casual but cool.


Stilettos are a no; wedges are a go for the ladies; and for gents, brogues or suede kicks rule over sneakers or slides.  

Make sure you can Stomp the Divots. 


For the fillies 

  • Wide brim hats not fascinators
  • Wedges or low block heels
  • Maxi’s, midis or flowing minis 

For the colts

  • Linens and luxe cottons
  • Open shirt, no tie required
  • Blazers with pocket squares
