How To Style: Polo Shirts

Falling between a T-shirt and a dress shirt, the Polo shirt typically comes with less enthusiasm or affection. Yet it deserves more love than it gets because it's the perfect garment for many events that aren't formal nor casual. Apart from plain piques and being associated as an unimaginative sartorial choice, there are many ways to style the Polo Shirt. Read this guide to find out more!

 WITH A SUIT

    Yep, you heard me. If you take these 2 garments apart, the suit and polo shirts are both standard pieces of a man's sartorial line-up. With a navy or grey suit, simply wear the Polo in place of a shirt and tie.

     

       LIGHTEN UP

        As a rule of thumb, the darker your skin tone, the more you are able to pull off lighter coloured Polo shirts. Try grey, cream or stone coloured Polos with contrasting coloured pants.

         

           STRIPES

            If you're not one for the minimalist look, try adding some stripes to your outfit. Bold, vertical block stripe polo shirts can be paired with chinos, jeans, trainers and loafers without too much effort.

             

               TERRY CLOTH

                Despite essentially being a polo shirt shaped towel, the design’s got more class than you think. The beauty of the terrycloth Polo Shirt is its simplicity. It is easy to wear and the best way to ease into wearing the textured material. Pair it with block-colour shorts and some leather sandals and you’ll make holiday dressing look like a piece of cake.
