The polo is one of the most iconic pieces of clothing. The word alone conjures up a certain summery crispness, whether you’re at the country club or in your backyard. With the rise of athleisure and sweatshirts, we’ve found ourselves craving a bit of the classics. And you know what? All of a sudden, they feel fresh again. Of course there are designers with their own takes on the polos. But even our trusty Lacoste and Ralph Lauren shirts are seriously good when styled correctly.
What kind of polo are you in the mood for? If it’s the all-American classic, look no further than Ralph Lauren obviously. If you’re feeling adventurous, their tie-dye polo has been cropping up on street style shots everywhere. We like to think of it as classic with a twist. Lacoste has a new female creative director for the first time, and their updated modern fit polo is a great update that makes the shirt feel more modern. Style them with your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans for a casual, but still polished vibe.
If you’re craving something a little bit dressier, we got that for you too. This Akris Punto scalloped polo is an upgrade thanks to the femme scalloping, modern zipper, and dressier fabric. Tory Burch Sport’s royal blue version will be sure to keep you cool, no matter your activity.
