Few things are certain in life, but at this very moment in time, it’s very, very likely that your go-to brand has a polo collar sweater in their lineup...again. Last fall, everyone from Madewell to Everlane to Club Monaco to J. Crew to Reformation had their own version of this posh knit—some with three buttons, some with none, some in cashmere some in cozy cable knit. And now, it’s back for round two. But to be honest, we’re really not that surprised.
Frequent Zoom calls and working from home are still the norm for many people, and it’s still unclear when those trends will (finally) come to an end. This collared style looks professional and polished on camera while also being supremely comfy, for a true win-win combination. However, it’s also a major nod to the Lacoste polo trend of the early aughts—and we all know how much fashion loves a nostalgia moment.
Regardless, this style is super easy to wear with high-rise blue denim, the leggings that have become like a second-skin to you or even the spangly sequin skirt you plan to wear for upcoming holiday celebrations. Here, 12 of our fave polo collar sweaters to buy this winter.
