Taking place in the midst of changing seasons, The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Presented by Talking Stick Resort, set for Nov. 5, is the perfect opportunity to blend creativity and class. From hair and makeup to final touches, the Luxe & City team presents the step-by-step preparation.
Arizona’s sunshine calls for light makeup over a protective layer of SPF or a foundation that already includes SPF. The perfect look includes dewy skin, clean brows, a classic liner and a natural lip tone. For hair, loose, natural, wavy curls are the way to go. AIIR Professional Shine Spray provides the final touch before heading out.
Polo Party fashion is the perfect opportunity to blend casual and formal wear for a comfortable yet chic look, and blazers are ideal pieces to kick off the season. They’re a great choice for nuance and practicality, as many feature inner breast pockets to hold your phone, wallet or lipstick. The hunter green and navy blue examples match neutral tones and trending patterns.
Short-sleeve shirts are a great option for layering. Light fabric button-ups and crew-neck tees, while unconventional, can pair well with jackets. They also provide breathability for when the outer layer gets a bit too hot. Either of the above looks can be paired with shorts or pants. Cuff pant legs for a breezy and stylish detail.
Blazers and light jackets can also be great layers to top off a dress. Wear it over your shoulders, tie it around your waist or drape it over your arm. The options are limitless. Sleeveless dresses and halter tops provide comfort without skipping class, and long skirts are ideal for mixing patterns and lounging on the field. Examples include the bold black-and-white striped dress and pleated lightweight green skirt.
Shoes and accessories are some of the most important elements for Polo Party fashion. Wedges, oxfords, loafers and sneakers are all great choices for comfortable, practical and stylish footwear. For the particularly brave, heels can make for a sharp silhouette, but you run the risk of sinking into the green.
Minimal classic jewelry is a great choice for a tasteful final touch. Hats are a recurring staple of the Polo Party. A structured brim hat is suitable for men, while ladies can rock the same look or a lighter and more flexible sun hat. Sunglasses can provide a sharp pop of contrast against your outfit or repetition of colors when matched with your shoes or belt.
As a premiere event of Arizona’s social season, the Polo Party is a quintessential opportunity to coordinate outfits with your friends and set the standard for group activities. With these suggestions in mind, there’s no limit to the fashionable possibilities.
