This year for the second time, I attend a Polo Match at the International Polo Club in Wellington, Florida. It is something that I would like to do more than annually and will be visiting at least twice this year since I just found out about the opening of the Kids Fun Zone, Sponsored by the Jupiter Medical Center at the International Polo Club.
There are several different experiences to choose from when watching Polo. I want to take you through them before diving into what to wear to a polo match. Let’s start with the highest end. This is the VEUVE CLICQUOT patio where you get Veranda seating, The Pavilion reception, Lavish gourmet brunch and One bottle (750ml) of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne.
The NEW Coco Polo Lounge – An exquisitely renovated 1964 vintage, red double-decker bus. This fantastic choice includes Lavish gourmet brunch, Two complimentary drink tokens, Lounge seating, umbrella tables, Private cash bar, chef, and valet parking, and Swag bag with products and gift certificates!! This is the coolest choice in my opinion because of the London Red Bus that has been transformed into a party patio. It’s the coolest thing ever and has tons of photos opps. I’m all for it!!
Lilly Pulitzer Patio
You can sit on the Lilly Pulitzer Patio where there is buffet lunch with one champagne and two drinks included in your ticket. This is where I sat for the 2nd year in a row. The Buffett is legendary and has everything you could ever dream of in a brunch. This year the patio has been dubbed the Lilly Pulitzer patio because of the Lilly printed table clothes on each table. It’s beautiful and incredibly fun way to watch the polo match.
The next option is renting a tailgate tent. This is for the huge polo fans that will be there every weekend.
Polo Match Stands
You can also sit in the stands. This is the least expensive way to watch the polo match and would be perfect for a fun day with the kids because the kids area is open on this side of the Polo Field.

Lilly Pulitzer Look
Pretty much anything Lilly Pulitzer will be perfect for a Polo Match. Here is our guide on How to Wear Lilly Pulitzer Prints from last year which we are always updating with new Lilly looks. Pair your polo outfit with wedges or flats so that you can partake in the stomping of the divots ritual during halftime. Also, you can add a hat or fascinator to accessorize your look the way the English do! Fascinators can be purchased quickly and at the last minute if necessary from Amazon. I’ve also seen them in places like Burlington and Nordstrom Rack. It might be worth a phone call to see if your local stores have any before driving all over town looking for one. I’ve found the best way to get them is on Amazon. This is the one I am wearing in the photo. It’s a comb that slides into your hair and comes in so many different colors!
The next look that I love is what I call the pretty woman polo look. Pretty Woman was the first time I can remember hearing about Polo and could never forget Julia Roberts looking fantastic in her polo dot dress and a giant hat. Polo dots are one of my favorite prints right above stripes and leopard. Going to a polo match is the perfect time to break out your polka dot dresses. I would recommend that the dresses be A-line, maxi, shift or full. Mini or tight dresses don’t make sense for Polo. You want to be comfortable and classy like the Royals. Tight and short don’t scream comfort and class to me.
Here are some more looks from the polo match that are must see!!
Also, I had to share that you can bring your dogs too!! Look at this sweet cavalier!!
