This spring fashion has gone back to basics. Trench coats, blue jeans and tailoring were reimagined on the runways of fashion houses including Celine, Saint Laurent and Simone Rocha.
But once super basic item has got a super stylish makeover, and become one of the must-have items of the season – the polo shirt.
Koché, Rokh, and Prada championed the classic sportswear collared shirt that’s normally reserved for the golf course or sports day at school.
Prada proved how stylish it can be especially pared with chic leather midi skirts, under blazers, and tucked into flared trousers.
The streetstyle set have, of course, adopted the shirt into their wardrobe rotation.
But this is far from basics, the new-gen polo shirt is sleek, understated, and elevated without too much branding and crafted in cashmere or wool.
Which all makes the sportswear staple super versatile to slip under waistcoats, leather blazers and dresses. Looking just as cool tucked into straight leg denims as it does slipped under a full suit for the office.
These season, there are two polo shirt camps to choose from, muted pastel tones, or bold and bright styles that come decked out in rugby-style stripes. Every colour of the rainbow is on offer, meaning all you have to do is select the shade to suit the rest of your wardrobe.
Scroll down for some serious outfit inspiration on how to style the polo shirt, and the best high-street and designer offering so you can give the trend a whirl.
