Spring’s Most Valuable Garment
The knit polo is a timeless style that instantly upgrades your look
There are two great style staples that should be in everyone's closets—a sweater and a polo. What if they combined forces? Match made in heaven, right? The knit polo looks good on just about everyone, much like the oxford. As we start to engage in more outdoor gatherings, you need something that can breathe throughout the day and keep you cozy at night.
The sweater polo comes in various fabrics like bouclé, cashmere, cotton and silk. If the fabrics don't get you excited, then the prints and patterns will. From cable-knit to ribbed and jacquard, there's no shortage of styles when it comes to this all-season garment and they've all got a mid-century swagger about them.
And here's the real kicker: The styles come in very flattering fits that accentuate your upper body—specifically your chest and biceps, which doesn't get talked about enough. The versatility should not go unspoken either. These are perfect to wear under a denim jacket or a suit since wedding season is approaching. Wear them to work and on the weekend. Here, we've pulled together some of our current favorites. Whichever one you pick, we promise it won't sit in your closet for long.

Wash on cold with a low spin cycle. Be sure to hang dry on a rack and not on a hanger—you don’t want the garment to stretch. Once you’re ready to wear, iron on the lowest setting or use a steamer.
