These Patterned Polo Shirts Will Spruce Up Your Spring Wardrobe

6-patterned-polo-shirts-to-spruce-up-your-spring-wardrobe-v2
The polo shirt is a spring/summer wardrobe staple for most guys. But just like “most guys,” it tends to err on the side of being somewhat staid and “normal” – that is, an often solid-colored pique cotton item that is a bit of a wardrobe no-brainer that kinda goes with everything.

More modern polos however, incorporate graphics, patterns, prints, unusual fabrics, or left-of-center stripes, thereby giving this easy-to-wear casual shirt a bit more fashion oomph. Just a tad flashier than their traditional cousins, these new takes on an old style are also incredibly easy to wear and will add an oh-so-subtle splash to your warm weather wardrobe.

Here are 18 of my favorite–and still relatively muted polos– currently available for purchase….
