Trends come and go and there seems to be a pressure to follow them or else you are deemed untrendy. However, classic styles like the polo never go out of style and I believe there is nothing wrong with rocking a timeless look. At least you won’t look back on those years you attempted to pull off leopard pleather cutout tights and cringe.
The polo shirt is a classic symbol of Ralph Lauren’s timeless polo line, a wearable preppy staple in any wardrobe. This Fashionisto strongly believes in staying classy by steering clear of trends and staying true to the polo way. He paired a summertime appropriate kelly green polo with a tan pair of chino shorts and a classic pair of Sperry Top-Siders boatshoes. You can never go wrong with this style as it can be easily interchanged with a different colored top and bottom.
For the summer, pairing a Ralph Lauren Polo T-shirt with shorts is an easy way to dress up any outfit in a way that is a more stylish alternative to a plain tee. As for the Fashionistas, a colorful polo top can also be paired with almost anything as well. To avoid attaining the “about to go play tennis” look, I would recommend pairing your polo top with jeans or jean shorts. For an all out preppy look, pair a white skirt with boatshoes or Keds.
Both Fashionistas and Fashionistos have a large variety of polo styles to choose from. Ralph Lauren makes polos for both men and women in almost every color you can imagine. For the Fashionista/o on a budget, American Eagle Outfitters sells affordable polos with great quality for men and women as well.
This summer, don’t underestimate the timeless polo shirt. The symbol of prep, the polo represents simplicity and class that does not require a lot of effort but definitely leaves an impression.
