10 Summery Polos to Wear Now

Enlist for Vacations, Golf Trips and Backyard Barbecues


The humble polo is one of summer's most versatile shirts.

At its most basic, it's little more than a T-shirt with a collar. At its best, it's a style statement brimming with different colors and fabrics.

Whichever route you go, stock up on a few polos this season, and your neck will never look out of place, whether you're lounging poolside or going out to dinner. These are 10 great polos to wear now.

With roots that date back to the 1950s French Riviera and extend to Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, this is one heavy-hitting polo. Available in a wide variety of colors, you could just wear this and call it a day. Sunspel, $145

Orchard & Broome's good-looking knitwear spans Peruvian pima stretch cotton and plush terry cloth, so you've got options. We're partial to the Jackson Terry Polo, which is impossibly soft and well-cut, so it's neither too slim nor too boxy. Throw in the eight color choices and those mother of pearl buttons on the placket, and it's everything you want in a polo. Orchard & Broome, $135

This Hudson Cabana Sweater Polo is soft and breathable, with retro vibes that you can dress up or down. Pair it with a nice pair of pants, and you're ready to go. Bonobos, $119

Should your evening evolve into a '70s poolside soiree, on the Mediterranean coast, you want to be ready. The Tropez Shirt ensure that. It channels its namesake into a lightweight terry cloth with a relaxed tailored fit, and the burnt sienna color becomes the life of any party. Dandy del Mar, $119

Add some western flair to your torso with the Ranchero Western Pearl Snap Polo from Howler Brothers. The single-pocket polo is made from soft, ring-spun cotton and features a thin, contrasting yoke along the front and back shoulders. Huckberry, $59

This cotton jersey polo is sueded for softness and washed for a lived-in feel. Pair it with jeans and go about your day. Buck Mason, $75

The Pensacola Polo is a Billy Reid classic that's been going strong for more than two decades. This season's version comes in springy new colors, and you can expect thoughtful details like woven cotton sheeting that gives structure to the color and placket. Billy Reid, $98

It's performance-inspired activewear, but a polo. For you, that means four-way stretch, moisture-wicking, UPF 30 fabric that protects you from the sun and stays cool during golf, tennis or vigorous patio lunches. Vuori, $78

Premium-weight organic cotton gives this polo a luxurious feel, but the relaxed fit and dropped shoulders keep things casual. Everlane, $65

Simple, stylish, affordable. That describes this multi-color collection of solid dry-pique polos. Uniqlo, $30
