The Polo Neck

By Beth Francis

beth author


Like it or loathe it, the weather is getting cooler, and still with one foot in my late summer wardrobe, I’m resisting the full on switch to Autumn, but it’s simply too chilly to get away with sleeveless dresses, so I’m turning to my new wardrobe hero – the jersey polo neck! 

Polo necks are making somewhat of a comeback this season – they were spotted across the catwalks, and magazines are awash with pages featuring the humble polo neck worn with pretty much everything.  Their beauty really is in their versatility – they can be worn on their own, with a leather biker, or under a knitted dress, dungarees, waistcoat, a blouse even…the list goes on.  As I slowly accept the cooling of the weather,

I’ll be adding layers week by week, starting by slipping my polo neck under a summer dress and adding a leather biker. 

I’ll then start layering up, add a coat over the biker (double jacketing is a thing now), and switching my summer dress to a knitted one, and my trainers for boots.  My polo neck will keep me going until Spring!
