POLO SHIRTS: A SUMMER STAPLE

Functional and stylish in one.
The sun has finally made an appearance and that means its time for the humble polo shirt to make its appearance too. Why? This comfortable piece is faultless all-year round but particularly in warmer weather thanks to its cool feel, casual look and abundance of styling options. Here's a few more reasons we love a polo shirt in spring.

AN ETERNAL CLASSIC

A part of the polo shirts appeal lies in its ability to blur the lines between dress codes. It's not quite as smart as a dress shirt but it's also not quite as casual as a T-shirt either. So, when in doubt - opt for a polo that you can dress up or down.

ALWAYS DEPENDABLE

Made from soft, breathable fabric, a polo shirt manages to keep you cool in warmer weather but it's thick enough to layer comfortably over T-shirts and vests too. Look to the DRY Pique style with moisture-wicking properties to keep sweat at bay.

A FAMILY FAVOURITE

If there's one item that transcends age and gender, its a polo shirt. Thanks to its casual appeal it looks flattering on just about everyone.

A SPORTING HERO

You'll find no shortage of polo shirts on the tennis courts and the golf course because this practical piece is the style of choice for many sporting enthusiasts. The stretchy Pique material allows for a wide range of movement and with its Dry-Ex properties it's highly breathable, sweat-wicking and prevents odour from forming.

A COMFORTABLE CHOICE

Polo shirts have come a long way since their preppy beginnings. They're now a capsule classic that can be paired with a high-waisted midi or a pair of ankle-grazing culottes for work.

A PROFESSIONAL APPROACH

Speaking of work, polo shirts are our go-to style for casual Friday. They can't help but look seriously suave with a pair of tailored chinos and a leather briefcase. Plus, when its made from cooling AIRism you know you can survive the warm, summer commute in one piece.
