Around this time of year during the gradual changes of weather and the hints of the holidays lurking around the corner, Angelenos are still celebrating their perfectly sunny weather with extravagant outdoor events such as the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.
The Polo Classic combines fashion, sports, outdoor fun and champagne all in one. It is the perfect blend of traditionalism and modernism in every sense. Everyone joins in on the festivities and dresses to the nines in preppy, classy, “Pretty Woman” attire. Champagne sippers, picnic goers, polo fanatics and anyone looking to have a good time will enjoy this event.
Although I didn’t go this year, I look back and reminisce at the fun I had at last year’s event wondering, “Why the heck did I not go this year??”
There are a few things to keep in mind when deciding to go to the Polo Classic.
- Aristocrat vs. Peasants
You can purchase 1 of 3 types of tickets when you attend the Polo Match: Rose Garden, Fast Pass, or General Admission. Whichever one you choose will ultimately decide which “side” you would like to participate in. Both sides are both extremely fun and you can’t really go wrong with whatever you choose. (Video coming soon to expand on just how much fun you can have at the Polo Classic.)
- How will you get there?
The Polo Classic is held in Malibu, which is quite a trek from the center of Los Angeles. The event provides shuttle buses to and from the parking lots if you do decide to drive to the event, which might be smart since getting an uber or lyft, will result in a long wait and inflated prices. However, Veuve Clicquot does sponsor the event and sipping champagne if part of the whole experience. Please be conscious of putting our safety first when decided how you will get home from the event. You can get your first free Uber ride using my code camiller158.
- And the most important question of all…WHAT DO I WEAR???
Let’s be honest…part of the reason you go to an event like the Polo Classic is the excuse to dress in a way that you wouldn’t normally dress. Just being able to see what everyone has showed up in creates the whole illusion that you’ve time warped to a far away place where polo matches are the norm.
The Polo Classic is held annually in California and New York.
