This Trendy Basic Seems to Be a Staple in Wardrobes Everywhere

While polo shirts have been around for quite some time, the silhouette stepped into the sartorial spotlight in an even more noteworthy way last season. Featured in abundance throughout the spring collections, the polos in question were knitted and felt retro yet incredibly modern. Well, those knitted polos are still holding strong this season, and honestly seem to be one of those trendy basics fashion people are relying on to create their simple yet chic looks.

These sweaters with collars run the gamut in terms of style—some fitted and slightly sheer, and others in slouchier cuts. In fact, I’ve consistently seen quite the smattering of said polos in the feeds of some of my favorite fashion follows over the last few months. This shirting silhouette honestly seems to be a fresh wardrobe staple for many. Below I’m sharing some of my favorite outfits featuring knit polos for a bit of visual inspiration. I also shopped out each look as well for some further inspo.
