When you think street style, a pique polo shirt is probably the last article of clothing you would associate it with just because it's so "common" and standard.
Back in the 90s, polo shirts could be considered a sort of standard issue uniform for all teenagers.
I lived in them. And loved them.
But as fickle as fashion is, it soon turned itself on the classic silhouette and deemed it out of date.

Luckily, the recent surge of 90s nostalgia has brought the humble polo back along with ripped jeans, chokers and high waisted jeans.
Memo Fashion quickly caught up on the trend and decided to release an updated version of the classic called "The Memo Owl".
The concept behind the Owl Polo is to provide Manileños with a versatile style staple that can help us simplify our closets.
SO WHY AN OWL?
"The Memo Owl Polos send the message that the wearer is not just stylish, but also smart. Aside from being creatures of the night, owls are a mythological symbol for intelligence, wisdom, and vision."
I like to think I'm pretty smart (heh) so here's how I styled my polo in 4 weekday to weekend outfits to display just how truly versatile they are.
ps. polos aren't confined to the traditional preppy look.
