Happy weekend my lovelies!
So everyone said hello to a new month yesterday and waved goodbye to the longest January eeeever. Was it really that long? haha. It sort of flew for me but I guess it’s because I don’t really have weekends off so I’m always on the road to somewhere and time just flies by. Hope you all have some nice plans for February, I feel like half of the country will be in Lanzarote or Tenerife? Are you one of them? #jealous
It’s still so cold out so I thought I’ll do a quick blog post about polo necks and how to style them like a pro. Sounds a bit boring I know but I promise you’ll fall in love with my wonderful star buy. On an OK / 10 degrees kinda day you would usually find me wearing at least 3 layers of clothing. I’m nearly certain I’m the coldest person in Ireland. Can I have an award for that?
I have to admit I do love a nice polo neck but I know some people find it quite granny-ish looking (i.e. my boyfriend) but aren’t they just the cosiest things ever? I’ve been on a search to find one that doesn’t cost a fortune (most of the nice ones I came across were cashmere etc.) but it was really hard!
My problemo was solved when I arrived to a photo shoot at Carraig Donn for their new SS18 Collection and saw these beauties hanging in all shades of gorgeousness. When I say they feel like fluffy clouds (which I imagine feel amazing) I mean it. I couldn’t believe my luck. BUT the best bit is that they retail at only €21.95 and have a cashmere blend through them. What?!
Shop them here.
OK let’s have a look at them. I’ve chosen these four as my favourite because of the beautiful pastel colours.
And if you love darker and brighter colours, they have a nice selection too. I fell in love with the cobalt blue and the magenta one, such vibrant colours.
There are lots of ways of styling them and I guess it depends on your personal style but don’t rule out skirts. I love how Holly Willoughby dresses her polo necks up, very chic and elegant.
I would personally style them with distressed jeans and boots just like the style queen Victoria Beckham, I love that boyish silhouette.
Here are some other looks to experiment with. You can really style them for any occasion; office, lunch or even late drinks with the girls.
I hope you found some inspiration here on how to style a simple polo neck. I’ve my two polo necks ordered, so I can’t wait to wear them and I’ll be sure to take snaps of them and post them on my IG @only_simona.
