A few weeks ago I put together a box of shirts to take to the consignment shop. About half of them were polo shirts. There were striped ones, bright pink ones and more conservative hues. I was not wearing them anymore so why hold on to them?
Years ago I would wear them a lot. In fact I wore them so much that I did a series of posts on how to wear a polo shirt to work. I did five looks: worn with a white skirt, denim skirt and blazer and even under a vest. The above pictures are from that series of posts that date to 2010.
What can I say, as it tends to happen, the moment I got rid of the polos I saw a huge campaign from Polo Ralph Lauren and how these were making a come back ! 
Luckily I think I left two or three in the back of the closet ;)

Are you a polo shirt wearer?

I love all the ideas you gave but no, I'm not a polo shirt girl. Creo que después de que salí de la escuela no los usé mas.

Moving on huh? No I am not a polo wearer. In fact I have never worn or owned a polo.

I have owned one polo shirt in my entire life, when I was in high school, in 1984. It was a bright marigold yellow. I thought it was awesome at the time. Polos feel too casual for me.

I remember that post!

¡Qué gracia Lorena! Justo ayer publiqué un look con polo comentando precisamente lo mucho que se vuelven a llevar. ¡Y sí el que yo muestro también es de hace unos años!
Personalmente me gustan porque es un clásico que se puede combinar tanto con tejano como con traje...
¡¡Has hecho bien en dejar unos cuantos en la recámara!!;-)

haha yes - every time I get rid of something it comes back in a big way!


I used to wear polo shirts often, they were a casual Friday staple for me too for a while, but in the end I let most of them go as I couldn't really think of other ways to wear them! I have had a few work provided polo shirts I've had to wear at various times since, but being a majority male dominated industry the shirts never fit right so I only wore them when it was mandated, ha! I still keep them, mementos of different periods at work, but I haven't worn them in years.

I've never been much of a polo wearer - I think I had one or two in my closet a long time ago but I've just never been a big fan of the way they look on me.

The funny thing is I have 2 post scheduled for next week where we are wearing polo shirts!! I didn't have one last year when a reader suggested the item, so I had to pick one up at the thrift store!!
If we lived closer, I could have borrowed yours...LOL!!

I think there was a brief period when I wore polo shirts. Actually, polo shirt. I had one, it was light blue. I know I loved it at the time, but it's been gone for many years now. I don't long for it back. I recently got one for my nephew, because a polo shirt on a three year old is something I can get behind.

I hate it when that happens! It's happened to me loads of times. Luckily you kept a couple.
