One of New Zealand's most fashionable events, the Landrover NZ Polo Open 2017 is just around the corner.

Viva magazine's Fashion in the Field has an incredible array of prizes including Best Dressed Woman, Best Dressed Man and Best Shoe.

When it comes to polo fashion think cool and breezy dresses. Mix white with soft, pastel pieces, while romantic florals give true feminine appeal.

 

 

Dione Ties dress in pink $599 Lurex gold socks $49 Both from Kate Sylvester If you're heading for the Veuve Clicquot Rose Garden Marquee, this is the perfect choice. Its hue will match the divine blooms on display. Team with a wide-brimmed floppy hat.
