knit with it

as is usually true with fashion, everything eventually comes full circle. however, this micro trend takes me wayyy back to the 9th grade, when my daily school uniform was a pair of true religion flared jeans, clarks wallabees, a black north face jacket and one of my many many pastel colored lacoste slim cut polo shirts. i thought this ensemble qualified as the HEIGHT of fashion??! sick.

this spring, however, polos are very much baaaack. but in a fresh new fash-shun way, with a nod to the 70s, more knit fabric constructions, banded stripes, and bolder primary colors.

the vibe reminds me of this blue sandro set i wanted last April and waited too long to buy (#sad).

besides pulling out your old faithful lacoste from the closet, here are some newer options out there to try– a slim fit tory burch, a classic white fred perry, a ladylike reiss, this ribbed yellow or an open weave version, both from zara, a printed stella jean, an uber chic striped lacoste, and a clearance steal at sandro. as many of the CPs above did, i recommend tucking them into a sleek skirt for an athletic/ladylike mix.
