The 8th Annual Polo Classic takes place on Saturday at Liberty State Park in New Jersey. I’ll be attending with bubbly host Veuve Clicquot. Now you know I am not exactly a sporty kind of girl. (Football games confuse me. The last time I went, I didn’t quite understand the concept of tailgating; people grilling food in the parking lot?!) But polo is a different story. I’m very excited, as it’s one of the most refined spectator sports. It’s also a pretty good one for one of my favorite activities, fashion spectating. Speaking of which, I’ve got a specific outfit in mind for the day:

1. Victoria Beckham Belted Crepe Dress:icon Do it demurely! Opt for a soft, pretty day dress over a skintight cocktail one. Like this breezy number by Victoria Beckham. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,677 (from $2,795).

2. Jamie Wolf Engraved Oval Pendant: Reject big bling in favor of a delicate necklace with hand-engraving, like this diamond-framed pendant with the etching of a single letter of your choice. At Jamie Wolf for $3,650.

3. Janessa Leoné Sunhat: Remember, it’s polo, not the Kentucky Derby. Leave your flamboyant bonnet and crazy getup at home, and go for something subtle like a simple straw sunhat. Think a made-over Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman, not Carmen Miranda. At Janessa Leoné for $181.

4. Paul Andrew Hampton Matte-Leather Espadrille Wedge Sandals:icon This is not the moment for 6” stilettos. Go for a feminine pair of wedges, which allows for fancy-free divot-stomping. On NET-A-PORTER for $222.50 (from $445).

5. Mark Cross Hadley Rattan Bag: This marks the perfect occasion for a rattan bag! Topped with red saffiano leather, Mark Cross’ very own classic suits the refined mood of the day’s event. At Mark Cross for $2,495.
