Summer is (almost) here and so is polo season. Never been to a match? Fret not, my bourgeois pet — here’s your chance to rub elbows with the fancy-pants polo crowd – you know you always wanted to. Slip in to your preppy-best (tea dresses, florals, fascinators, shawls, wedges, parasols — anything to make Kate Middleton proud), pour yourself a glass of Veuve Clicquot, and make a royal appearance at the fifth-annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on June 2nd. That is… if you can snag a ticket to the sold-out event.
That’s is where we come in. You don’t need to marry in to royalty to get a pass; we’re giving away 5 pairs! We will announce the winners tomorrow!
Already attending? Then it’s time for us to help plan your outfit. Sure, the game is interesting (feel free to explain the rules to me for the 100th time), but we all know the fashion is the real reason to ogle Nacho Figueras — er, horses all day. And this year, Veuve Clicquot has collaborated with Penelope Parasols for a limited edition yellow-hued, silk parasol —a fave of posh celebs like Catherine Zeta-Jones and Uma Thurman. This signature, stand-out, accessory is available online and at the Veuve-Clicquot Polo Classic event. Other polo must haves? A below-the-knee skirt (for sitting like a lady on a blanket) and wedges (we’ve all seen Pretty Woman, divot stamping is not a heel-friendly activity).
