Smarter polos make dressing for an evening out easy. Opt for a fitted style, preferably in a darker, neutral colour. We’re liking the tipped details on these polos for bringing a slightly sporty vibe to your smart look. For an after-dark outfit, opt for black jeans or chinos and style with loafers. Dressing for a garden party? Try your smarter polos with lighter chinos or trousers and fresh white trainers.

Polo Shirt Styling Tips

  • Opt for a more fitted polo shirt. They obviously shouldn’t be skin-tight, but if they’re too baggy and oversized they tend to look a bit messy. Whereas a good fitting polo shirt can bring an outfit together.
  • Your polo shirt should be long enough to tuck in, but short enough to wear un-tucked. The sleeves should fall around the midpoint of your bicep.
  • If you’re wanting a smarter finish, tuck your polo shirt into your jeans or trousers for a more put together finish.
  • Keep your buttons done up to effortlessly smarten up your style.
  • Don’t pop your collar, this trend is long gone, just don’t do this!
