Transport back to the early 2000s… visions of me at a preppy high school wearing juicy tracksuits, boys layering polos, and yes… ME in a Lacoste or Ralph Lauren Polo 🙀👚 frolicking on the fake grass we had in the courtyard (yikes 👀 ). Seeing old pics reminds me of the terrible fashion of the early aughts and how I shunned those trends from there on out; aka you wouldn’t catch me dead in a polo! ….That is….until I found a new way to style them…. 😏 😏
How? High waisted flares hayyy! 👌👌 And just like that 3 appeared in my closet *magic* 😜 This pant style (either flares or wide leg) will totally give you an update to the polo look. Most important thing to nail this style is the high waist… untucked polo with low rise flares ➪ barf early 2000… BUT tucked in polo with high rise flares ➪ gold👍🌟. Add a wide or skinny belt on there to finish off the look (which I admittedly forgot to wear 😳) .
Shop revamped, 2000’s crushing, retro, sassy polos:
Complete the look with my favorite high waisted pants:
And so…Welcome to the new world of polos! Not sure what I enjoy more, the fact that I’m revamping this typical preppy, golf club item into a hipster fashionista 70s inspired dream OR that I now have ONE item in my closet that is now “golf club” appropriate… the irony. 😝⛳️💃
