The goop Take: The Polo

In partnership with our friends at

It’s been almost half a century since Ralph Lauren gave the world his polo shirt. The preppy staple has gone from classic to ironic and back again. And through it all, we’ve never stopped wearing it. We asked seven women how they make this iconic shirt uniquely their own.

“For eight years of school I wore nothing but red, white, and navy—polo included. So I took a break for, well, a few decades. But years later, I admit that same uniform influences my style today. I take a less-is-more-approach to getting ready, so pairing a polo with classic navy high-waist trousers feels really modern.”

“My approach to getting dressed hovers between a 1920s tennis player and a Montana rancher. I’ve got a long way to go to perfecting that look, but wearing a polo makes me feel a few steps closer. I’ll wear a neutral polo with something more casual or rugged to play down the country club vibes.”

“I never know where my day’s going to take me, so I want my outfit to be versatile. I can slip a polo under a jumpsuit or tuck it into a pair of shorts and feel polished and casual at the same time.”
