A polo shirt is the perfect casual staple that any man can have in his wardrobe. Contrary to popular belief, polo shirts are not just for tennis and golf but can be worn to a variety of events from summer barbecues to golf and tennis outings. Polo shirts are easy to style as well and can be paired with trousers or seersucker pants effortlessly.
Wondering how polo shirts should fit? Polo shirts should hug your frame and have fitted sleeves that reach halfway down your bicep. A well-fit polo shirt should be the right size, but not too tight. A good way to check the fit of your shirt is to see if you can't stick two fingers between your shirt and your bicep. If not, you need to go up a size. If there's a lot of slack, then you should get a smaller size. Polo shirts should also be sized properly for your height. An untucked polo shirt should not come more than halfway down your buttocks. A shirt that isn't sized to the proper length will mess with your proportions when it's untucked.
When it comes to how to style polo shirts, less is more. This is an article of clothing that isn't made for layering, so it's best to style it with your favorite shorts or jeans and leave it at that. But you don't have to settle for a solid color. There are lots of prints and graphics that you can mix with your favorite bottoms for a variety of looks.
