While polo shirts definitely look great on men, women can wear them pretty well too. In the fashion world flooded with t-shirts, blouses and dresses, polo shirts are really ignored. To be honest, there are only so many ways to style a polo shirt that the key to looking good is to wear it as part of a simple outfit. Even so, as always, I’ll do my best to come up with my top outfit ideas for wearing a polo shirt and hopefully you can use it as a helpful reference.
White polo shirt with skinny jeans and sandals
As mentioned earlier, when it comes to polo shirt outfit ideas, it’s important to keep things very simple. When do you even wear a polo shirt? A good time for me would be to visit my neighbor or if I am in line for something in a government department or bank that I want to dress in a way that makes me feel very comfortable and still want to look decent and mature. Back to that outfit, you can just wear a white polo shirt with skinny jeans and heeled sandals.
Gray fitted polo shirt and black shorts
There aren’t many ways to style a polo shirt and that’s why both the color and the cut are so important. For this outfit you have a gray, figure-hugging polo shirt that is a bit long. With black shorts and white sneakers, the outfit can really emphasize your slim waist and long legs.
White polo shirt with denim mini skirt
One chic way to wear a white polo shirt is to pair it with a denim mini skirt. You can definitely wear heeled sandals for a more elegant look, while white sneakers can create a causal street look. I can imagine that this outfit would still look very nice if you replaced the polo shirt with a white buttoned shirt, but the style and feel would be very different. The outfit with the button-up shirt is more like a work outfit, while with a polo shirt you look more casual, as if you were playing golf.
Gray long sleeve skinny fit polo shirt with white jeans
With this outfit you can see the great advantage of a narrow waist. If you’re one of those who are in such good shape, pair this outfit with a gray, long sleeve, slim fit polo shirt with a low waist and white jeans. Give the outfit a little character by wearing an identification tag.
Wear with flare jeans
Although I love boyfriend jeans a lot more than flare jeans, not because of the current fashion trend but because of the way boyfriend jeans allow me to move about freely and comfortably, flare jeans look great when you they carry with the correct items. As a good example of this, this outfit consists of a white polo shirt, black flare jeans and boots.
Blue long-sleeved polo shirt with white shorts
If you want to stand out from the crowd every now and then, you can do so by wearing clothes with really catchy colors, like the royal blue. You can just wear a royal blue polo shirt with a white skirt and white oxford shoes.
Wear it with a pink and white striped skirt
The polo shirt often gives you the unisex feeling. To wear it feminine, you can combine a white polo shirt with a pink and white striped skirt and light pink heels. One little thing to keep in mind for this outfit is that you tuck your shirt in and the shirt should be slim fitting. Otherwise it can look a bit chunky.
Navy polo shirt with white shorts
As simple as this outfit seems, this is actually my favorite outfit idea on the list. I would say that if you replace the polo shit with a shirt in this case, you can’t look that good. The cuttings and colors have a lot to do with it. To achieve that lovely casual look, wear a fitted navy polo shirt with white denim shorts and trainers.
Red polo shirt dress with white slippers
It’s not exactly a polo shirt, but a polo shirt dress. But it looks so beautiful that all I have to do is place it here. I like it so much that one day there might even be another blog post about polo shirt dresses. Anyway, back to that outfit, it just consists of a red polo shirt dress and white slippers.
Short gray polo shirt with white jeans
This polo shirt surprises me a little by breaking my opinion about polo shirts. I never thought of them as something to wear to look sexy. Looks like I’m wrong. You can look reservedly sexy by wearing the dark gray cropped polo shirt with white jeans and sneakers.
Blue polo shirt with ripped jeans
This outfit is here to emphasize my point that the key to styling a polo shirt is to keep things simple. A simple, figure-hugging blue polo shirt and ripped jeans look pretty good to me.
Wear with cheetah skirt
This outfit is probably the only thing that still looks good without following my rule of keeping the outfit simple. The outfit consists of a white polo shirt and a cheetah skirt. The outfit is obviously unique and requires a strong character.
Black polo shirt with black skinny jeans
For a really casual and inconspicuous street outfit, you can simply wear a black polo shirt with black skinny jeans. Balance out the black with white sneakers.
Here are some of the best polo shirt outfit ideas I’ve put together. Hopefully you’d agree that polo shirts look great on women too.
