Social butterflies and fashion icons swapped the city for the seaside this weekend, flocking en masse to Portsea for the annual Jeep Portsea Polo.

Traditionally more relaxed than the Spring Racing Carnival, fascinators were swapped out for wide brimmed hats, neutrals and earth tones were favoured over neon brights, and soft fabrications replaced body con silhouettes.

White lace appeared to be the order of the day, taking shape in feminine maxi dresses, fun rompers and subtly sultry minis. Florals were embraced in more muted hues than we’re used to seeing, proving that the neutral on neutral trend will continue to be on the forefront for quite some time.

Jeep Marquee ambassador Anna Bamford shone in soft peachy pink Dion Lee, while fellow ambassador Olympia Valance injected some high fashion appeal into proceedings in floral Gucci. See all of our favourite looks from the Jeep Portsea Polo above.
