The polo shirt. Versatile, steeped in heritage and timeless. A wardrobe staple for men and women alike, the polo shirt’s popularity never wanes, so here’s our take on how to wear this fine little number:
Get sharp like Ryan Gosling and style your polo with a suit or blazer. If you’re going for a neutral tone on the suit, you can afford to go for a bolder colour or a shirt with some contrast detailing for a smart, statement look. Perfect for work to night out or on a date.
Ok, so we’re not suggesting you channel every aspect of The Talented Mr Ripley, but, style wise, this look is pretty hard to beat, especially for summer and those mini breaks. Go for a tipped collar contrast polo, buttons undone with some Bermuda/chino shorts, Espadrilles and tortoise shell wayfarers for a nautical vibe or swap for pastel tones for a preppy look.
Button up like Luther
Idris loves a polo. Worn with suits, trainers and jeans, any which way. But one of his favorite looks is a neutral buttoned up polo paired with chinos and some black leather Converse or Plimsouls. This styling is perfect for a relaxed weekend look, and all you need to do is switch for a long sleeve for the winter months.
