Spring 2018 presents iconic styles that have been updated ever so slightly without straying too far from Polo’s DNA. For men, a military surplus-themed group arrives alongside colorful classics with endless wear possibilities. The women’s assortment ranges from always-chic silhouettes in black and white to menswear-inspired pieces styled in anything-but-masculine ways. From the playground to the classroom, children’s arrivals in a mix of upbeat colors, florals, and stripes strike a playful tone.
Women’s Polo is a celebration of American style viewed under a modern lens. Elevated icons in navy and white with splashes of red—including blazers, tailored pants, and Bengal stripes—are updated in relaxed proportions. Among the highlighted looks is a moto-style jacket in distressed calfskin teamed with a striped shirt and a drape pant. Multi-colored knits and sweaters perfectly complement the fashion-forward styles. For the on-the-go Polo woman, a minimal palette of black and white separates pulls double duty. Neutral tones punctuated by bold prints and colors are paired with foundational fabrics take her wardrobe from work to weekend and beyond.
Men’s Polo kicks off with a collection based in a surplus sensibility. Capturing the spirit are flight jackets, complemented by tan and khaki sportswear with military-inspired details. Contemporary styles, which range from long-sleeved Polo shirts to chambray sport shirts, bridge the gap between surplus and sporty. Rendered in grey and white, these pieces serve as a palette cleanser before the arrival of updated staples in a broad, saturated color palette that’s easy to mix and match. A shawl collar layered over a poplin sport shirt, for example, take the Polo man from garden party to casual cookout.
Perfect for the first days of spring, yarn-dyed plaids and stripes are bursting with color. Mesh Polo shirts and poplin shirts are key to building a boy’s polished wardrobe. Essentials, from cotton tees to fleece hoodies, are go-to options for anything—from cozy weekends to busy school days. For a unique mash-up that girls are sure to love, pretty florals mix with classic American denim. A Polo shirtdress layered over printed leggings, for instance, strikes a balance between sporty and dainty. In all, the mood is bright, spirited and fun.
