Polo shirts are no longer the male-centric sporting apparel that originated in the 19th century. Today, they’re popular with women too, and have become a fashion staple for multiple purposes. Practical in both form and function, it’s the daily wear you can easily throw on for casual outings or even for sports. Some you just wear to make a statement, but whichever occasion you choose, here are 5 of our top picks to elevate your wardrobe.    


Shanghai Tang Cotton ‘8’ Floral Embroidery Polo Shirt

Bringing an Oriental twist to a primarily western apparel, Shanghai Tang’s polo shirt features their signature mandarin collar and ‘Chinese’ buttons. The auspicious numeral eight is embroidered on both front and back for tidings of good fortune, while Asian orchids and sweet pink retain its feminine appeal.

Polo Ralph Lauren Lace-up Mesh Boyfriend Polo

Better known for their classic polos, Ralph Lauren’s Boyfriend variant is a fresh take that replaces the conventional buttoned placket with a lace up mesh for a more laid-back, sultry look. Exude confidence and elegance by hanging its tennis tail hem over slim fit leather bottoms and heels. Comes in black or white.


Kenzo Tiger Polo Shirt

Elevate your cool factor with Kenzo’s minimalist offering in pure black with white piping and trimmings on its collar and sleeves. Bearing only an embroidered tiger’s head logo, this shirt’s classic straight and tapered cut makes going back to basics that much sleeker. Pair it with their black carrot-cut trousers for a svelte silhouette.

Lacoste Women’s Slim Fit Colourblock Stretch Mini Cotton Pique Polo

Lacoste’s dual toned colourblock stretch mini in cotton pique is both stylish and comfortable whether you’re at work, on the green or even on a date. A single colourblock of ladybug red running down the centre of this flour white piece gives it a semi-formal vibe when worn with a pants suit, but instantly turns casual with jeans or shorts. 

Abercrombie and Fitch Icon Polo

Partially blended with elastane, Abercrombie and Fitch gives the conventional polo a figure-flaunting update. Preserving the traditional collar and button-up placket, this slim fit burgundy top is great for bringing out your playful side. Go for the pink version if you’re looking for something more fun.
