Women have come to love the simple, classic, polo shirt as much as men, but for women there are ways to wear the polo that really make it into a fashion statement – here’s a brief round up of what you can do to turn a simple polo shirt into a show stopping outfit:
• Use a scarf: scarves are big this summer, especially floaty, hippy type scarves, so use a couple to dress up your polo shirt by wearing the shirt with a long skirt and then twisting one scarf to make a rope belt that you tie round the waist of the shirt, while the other you twist and wear round your hair like a headband.
• Wear a waistcoat: this is a great way to give a polo shirt some pizzazz – just add a contrasting waistcoat over the top to give a more formal impression.
• Wear a vest T-shirt on top: low cut vests in contrasting colours can make a polo shirt look very boho – just put the T-shirt on over the polo shirt and make sure you leave the polo neck completely unbuttoned, it looks very casual and cute.
• Wear it under cashmere: for instant style, pair a soft-toned women’s polo-shirt with a v-neck cashmere sweater or a button-up cashmere cardigan. It’s a bit like a twin-set but more modern.
All of these add a twist to the classic polo shirt.
