Warm Weather Polo

Believe it or not, I was never really a fan of polo shirts. They reminded me of a school uniform, so I avoided them like the plague. I finally gave polo shirts a try when I got into the corporate world; there I realized that they weren’t so bad. Like many other clothing pieces, it’s all about how you wear it. What I like about polo shirts is that they’re transitional. So, you can wear them to the office, the park, or a rooftop soirée.

The Summer Gent.

Just when we were about to give up on summer officially hitting New York City, we get smack with 90 degree weather and heat advisories. I know that I am always saying that really hot weather limits what you can wear and while I strongly believe that it does, there is a workaround. It’s called warm weather layering. For this look we wanted to go for a casual, yet sophisticated feel. However, it was 93 degrees outside and wearing anything that involved a blazer and button-down shirt was out of the question. So, we went for a waistcoat and hemp henley short-sleeve t-shirt to keep cool and topped off the look with slim-fit trousers and loafers.
