If you're looking for the best men's spring fashion tips, you've come to the right place. In this week's featured post, we will teach you how to wear a polo shirt the right way this season.
Polo shirts can be a staple spring/summer piece depending on how you style it. When it comes to wearing polo shirts, you can take it down a few different routes. Whether you're going for a smart or casual look, with a few simple tweaks in your outfit, you can achieve it all.
Polo & Shorts Combination
At their very core, polo shirts can simply be worn on its own with a pair of shorts and some simple white sneakers. Try stepping this look up with a brown belt, leather strapped watch and a pair of white low-top kicks.
Try experimenting with different colours and prints, especially during the spring and summer time. You only have a short time frame to take advantage of these summery prints, so make the most of it.
Polo & Jean Combination
This combination is another go-to when you want to wear your polo, but also play it safe. Swap out your shorts for a pair of jeans if the weather is not on your side. This is also a much better option if you're aiming to look formal enough for a night out with your friends.
Try wearing a fitted polo shirt with a pair of dark washed or raw denim. Alternatively, you can swap out the indigo colours for a grey or black pair of denim to achieve a slightly more casual and vintage 70's look.
Smart Polo Outfits
Polo shirts aren't just reserved for casual looks. One of the best ways to wear a polo shirt is to pair it up with a fell fitted blazer and some dress pants, chinos, or a dark wash pair of denim.
Again, here is a great opportunity to play with some spring/summer friendly colours. For example, try wearing a salmon pink or mint coloured polo with a white linen blazer. If you want to play it a bit safer, try achieving a monochrome look while putting together a smart polo outfit.
To Tuck Or Un-Tuck?
We ask ourselves this question every time we're about to throw together an outfit with a polo shirt. The answer is, it really depends on the style that you're going for. Although some might argue that tucking in your polo shirt should only be reserved for "dad's", it is still the best way to look formal with this type of shirt.
Just keep in mind that if you are planning on tucking your shirt in, make sure that you are wearing a belt. Keep it untucked if you're looking for a more casual and relaxed look.
