Zara - Knit square sweater
One of the great things about this time of year is wrapping up warm in a lovely cuddly jumper. This year it seems polo necks are back. I guess they never really go anywhere though, everyone likes to stay warm right? This autumn and winter make a polo neck your statement piece, the main focus point of your outfit. I've been noticing polo neck jumpers a lot lately, especially on the catwalk and their now starting to appear on the high street.I know polo necks are often overlooked. You may be thinking; what's the big deal? It's only a polo neck... but who wouldn't want a jumper and scarf all in one? haha. A polo neck is a very versatile piece. It looks great slouchy when your going for a more casual look. It looks great smartened up for work and it even looks great under a leather jacket. So you can't go wrong! Here are some of my favourites and ways you can wear them.
Sweater / Topshop boyfriend jeans, £52 / Dune flat shoes / Michael kors handbag / Sole Society bucket hat, £34 / STELLA McCARTNEY cat eye sunglasses, £170For a casual everyday look i suggest opting for an oversized slouchy looking polo neck jumper, as they are super comfortable and cosy! I particularly love this khaki green one paired with boyfriend jeans. This keeps the outfit looking effortless and trendy. The leopard print slip ons are a great way to add some pattern to a very casual look, keeping it stylish. To complete the look wear a brown leather bag and sunglasses (if it's sunny) to accessorise, as well as a hat as it may be cold, and because bucket hats are right on trend this autumn!
Monochrome colours are a perfect go-to when dressing smart especially in the office. Why not try a chunky knit grey polo neck paired with cigarette style trousers. This grey polo neck by Missguided looks super comfortable and is easy to style for work. Adding a pair of loafers keeps your outfit looking very classic. This look never goes out of style! I particularly love these loafers. The black and white contrast makes them really stand out, and I'm all for a bold eye catching shoe. A polo neck jumper really can be smartened up. It looks so effortless yet so formal! A smart looking jacket or blazer is great for layering over the polo neck.
