THE ALL-WHITE/PREPPY LOOK
For a perfectly relaxed weekend, all-white could be the best tonic. Start with a classic white polo t-shirt ensuring it’s a perfect fit. Team it up with white chinos that taper towards the bottom aiming for a sleek silhouette. Complete your look, with a pair of white moccasins or rich brown loafers. And lastly, the finishing touch! Dump the socks. Turn up your hems and let your legs breathe. If all-white is not your thing, try lighter colours like beige and stone, or understated pastels like mint green and sky blue.
The athletic luxe touch of polo tshirt can lend a sporty edge to any outfit. Want a slick streetwear turnout? Combine your polo with a lightweight bomber jacket and tailored joggers. For a smart take on sports luxe, wear the polo with a simple pair of cropped black pants and white casual sneakers.
THE SHIRT REPLACEMENT
Need to maintain a sharp look? Swap that long-sleeved button-down for a polo. Since this time of the year begs for bright colors, you can easily drop your regular suits and instead opt for a slim fit suit to go with your polo tshirt. Wear this combo with your favourite oxfords and voila! You have mastered the art of layering using polo tshirt and maintained the suave and sophisticated look you always wanted to.

DRESS IT UP
If you do not want to suit up, opt for a printed polo tshirt. Just so you know, polo tshirts are available in a variety of colors and prints for all kinds of casual occasions be it luncheon with work colleagues or evening coffee with friends. Expand your polo options and select some interesting prints and styles that will get you going in style and also grab a lot of eyeballs. Prints and colors will also avoid making you look too casual.
Team your polo with a pair of tailored shorts for an effortless-stylish look. This is a go-to combination that every man should have in his stock. This will also ensure you stay comfortable and on-trend. If you opt for a neutral pair of shorts, experiment with patterned and printed designs that add a lot of interest to an otherwise plain look.
