Nomzamo Mbatha on how to make the polo greens your runway
1. What are your style tips for ladies attending the polo?
My take on a polo chic look is simple: daytime chic meets sleek sophistication, match the trends by wearing a cool jumpsuit, bias cut dresses, comfortable heels such as wedges or block heels and statement sunglasses.
2. What's your recommendation for the boys?
For the gents I suggest cool linen suits, colourful pocket squares and loafers.
3. What can we expect from your look this year?
I am wearing a couture dress by Jacques La Grange couture for my official MC duties. Expect timeless glamour by day. For the after party, I will wear something sassy from Rich Factory.
