Fun weekend brunch
Great for a laid-back brunch, polo t-shirts are instant favourites. Pick one in a bright colour such as turquoise or pink, and pair it with knee-length shorts in lighter shade. Slate grey and sand are always a reliable option because most bright colours pair well with them and you don’t have to spend too much time trying to figure out if your ensemble looks cohesive.
Semi-formal dinner date
If your staple Friday dressing outfit is a combination of a checked shirt and a pair of jeans, give your style an update with a polo t-shirt. When paired with chinos or formal trousers and a blazer, your look will be both comfortable and office-appropriate. Having said that, remember to never pull your collar out and lay it over your blazer’s lapel—it will take your entire look a couple of notches down.
Dos and Don’ts
- Never tuck your polo t-shirt into your trousers unless you’re adding a blazer or jacket to the outfit.
- Leave baggy polo t-shirts when you’re doing chores around the house. For all other purposes, pick a polo t-shirt that is well-cut and flatters your form.
- Prints and patterns are a great way to add something extra to your polo t-shirt ensemble, so embrace florals, geometric prints and colour blocks the next time you’re out shopping.
