Black tie means elegance and poise, and a venue like the Polo Reserve is the perfect backdrop for the swankiest of looks. Miss Johnson embodies both elegance and poise in this one shoulder gown. The good news with a long dress? You can get away with wearing flats, which is ideal because most of this event is in the grass – avoid the awkward “aerating strut” (we have all done it) and stay comfortable at the same time.

What to wear to polo. Polo fashionWould it really be a polo event without hats? Whether you recycle your top hat from the derby party or you opt for a new floppy summer style you cannot go wrong. Miss Johnson shows how charming a tasteful floral pattern can be with a classic Oscar De La Renta dress and a nude heel.

This polished glam look is perfect for the Polo Classic. Polo fashion often incorporates pastel colors and preppy cuts. Because suits and dresses are the common silhouettes, derby clothing tends toward the conservative end of the style spectrum. Kelley shows that polo fashion can be both playful and appropriate by utilizing color and pattern in this look.

Don’t forget your heels for the traditional “divot stomping” event during championship Sunday — get ready for the #prettywoman pics
