We didn’t call Marco, but Rihanna, Hailey Bieber and many other celebrities did call Polo.
Just days apart, the “Lift Me Up” singer and the Rhode founder were both spotted wearing Loewe red, white and blue striped neck sweaters. Rihanna shortened hers and styled them with low rise jeans (to show off her baby bump) and a Louis Vuitton clutch. Hailey also kept things loose on the bottom with baggy jeans, but decided on a black leather jacket and accessories to coordinate.
Rihanna and Bieber’s tops resemble rugby shirts, which are made with heavier fabric, but other preppy polo shirts are also being pulled from classrooms and into celebrity closets. In October, Gigi Hadid wore a polo sweater and Elsa Hosk wore one in an Instagram post she shared in February.

And as the stars testify, when paired with a bottom that might be an unexpected choice, the outfit totally changes. For example, when paired with cargo pants, like Hadid, the look isn’t super preppy anymore, it’s bold. When paired with flowy pants, it makes it look like you’re on vacation on the Amalfi Coast. And probably, most relevantly, when paired with your work pants, it looks professional.
We’re about to jump into spring, but we haven’t forgotten Rihanna and Bieber’s look either. That’s why we found a mix of both. Keep scrolling and discover stripes, solids and more polo shirts.

To rub shoulders with Rihanna, Bieber and the rest of the polo club stars, pick up this $49 Treasure & Bond shirt. The pattern is similar to their Loewe tops, but without the red stripes. The length is already a bit short, so you won’t have to tuck it in like the “Kiss It Better” singer, but sizes go up to XL if you prefer a more oversized fit.

This Wosalba Cuffed Long Sleeve V-Neck Polo Shirt from Amazon is a little more polished – it has no stripes and is just solid with a shiny white collar that definitely hits the eye. It also resembles the tie-neck trend seen on Mindy Kaling and Kate Middleton in recent months. And if you have long nails or buttons just aren’t your friend, there’s also a zippered version and a few short-sleeved variations.
