Polo necks get revamped

Polo necks are the most fashionable way to stay chic this season.

This Fall/Winter trend is ideal for those who want to be covered up while still looking stylish. The classic look was spotted all over the runways earlier this year, with a few contemporary twists.

Akris went sleek and simple with their block colours and skin tight examples. Hermés teamed theirs with more knits and heavy tweed and Ralph Lauren added some glitz to the garment with a heavy dose of sequins.

For a daytime look wear the polo neck tucked into a high-waisted skirt or trousers. Make sure the fabric on your lower half is heavier to enhance the shape of the knitwear. Keep tones muted and elegant for a hint of Italian glamour. Pair the look with a heavy necklace to avoid it looking drab.

For the evening try to create a slinky silhouette. Wear the polo neck with skin-tight trousers or a figure-hugging pencil skirt for a hint of retro glamour. High heels are a must for this skin-covering look. Take inspiration from Ralph Lauren and try a design with some sequins or beading.

Bright colours are a good idea as they will pop out against a sea of little black dresses.
