Ralph Lauren polo shirts are more versatile than most people realise and are suitable for more than casual occasions. They are great for keeping your wardrobe up to date with the latest trends in men's fashion. Choose a slim fit for a more tailored look and consider a long-sleeved polo shirt for smart-casual wear. These shirts are ideal for casual office wear, an evening out, and Sunday brunch. For more inspiration and ways to wear Ralph Lauren polo shirts, shop the look on eBay.
Although casual Friday is more casual than the rest of the week, many employers expect you to sport smart-casual clothing rather than your favourite T-shirt and jeans. A Ralph Lauren polo shirt is ideal for this occasion because it is more structured than a T-shirt and looks good with slim-fit trousers. Choose a polo shirt in a solid colour, whether you prefer light blue or plain black. If a short-sleeved polo shirt is too casual for your workplace, add a light jumper or opt for a long-sleeved polo shirt. Focus on finding a cut that suits your build and creates a polished look. Regular polo shirts are roomy and better suited to playing sports than spending the day at the office. Select casual trousers without formal pinstripes or a check pattern. Consider good quality chinos in tan or navy. Opt for dark brown boots or shoes rather than trainers or formal work shoes. Add a smart jacket to dress up the outfit.
An Evening Out
Whether you are planning an evening out with friends or a first date with someone special, you can wear a Ralph Lauren polo shirt and smart trousers to create a casual yet polished look. This type of outfit is especially useful if you need a versatile, comfortable outfit suitable for a variety of activities, from a visit to the cinema, to a meal at a restaurant, to drinks at a nightclub. If the event is more casual than formal, opt for a brightly coloured or pastel polo shirt. For events that are more smart than casual, choose a cream or off-white polo shirt or a shirt in a dark, neutral colour. Wear it with tailored black, navy, or dark grey trousers and boots or casual lace-up shoes. Add a leather jacket for a trendy look or a blazer for a conservative effect.
Sunday brunch is the ideal start to a lazy day and the ideal opportunity to dress down your Ralph Lauren polo shirt. For a casual venue, pair a colourful polo shirt with indigo jeans, trainers, plimsolls, or boots, and a casual jacket. Look for a polo shirt with a band of colour in the collar and sleeves to prevent a bright solid colour from overpowering your outfit. If you prefer a look that is more polished, wear the shirt with your favourite casual trousers and shoes. Button the shirt's top button for a smarter look. Add a cardigan or jumper in cooler weather.
