The polo shirt has come a long way from the tennis court. Now considered to be an essential item in the wardrobe, you can wear the polo casually or at a smarter occasion. If you're not sure on how to pull off this versatile piece in your wardrobe, here are 3 simple ways you can wear a polo shirt.
Casual and comfortable, a polo shirt can make a casual outfit smart. Don't complicate it, stick to a lighter coloured shirt with a pair of jeans or shorts. Complete the look with plimsolls or boat shoes. When it's blue skies outside and the sun is shining, don't forget to take a pair of sunglasses.
If the dress code says smart casual, you can't go far wrong by wearing a polo with chinos. After all, when the temperature rises and the sun shines, a polo shirt will ensure you still look smart without breaking a sweat. It's a classic look that works well, especially if you choose a polo shirt in a darker colour such as navy or grey. Complete the outfit with some brogues or loafers.
Switch up your style and go from day to night in one easy step thanks to the polo. Switch it up a bit and add texture in a long sleeve polo shirt. Wear with either smart chinos or black jeans and you could add a blazer. Why not freshen up your wardrobe in light pink and you could always bring your own sense of style by rolling up the sleeves. Add a pair of brogues or boat shoes to finish. Remember the devil is in the detail - keep your polo shirt all buttoned up. And whatever you do, don’t put your collar up.
