Your favorite collared shirt is usually designed on the left breast one of three ways: with a tiny silhouette of a polo player, a huge silhouette of a polo player, or some other logo we’ve seen all too many times. Your outfit is one of the first things someone notices about you, so instead of sending a message of your shirt brand, let your own personality shine using these ideas to design a one-of-a-kind polo.
• Your favorite
Take things near heart to a literal level. Support your team by repping their uniform logo or a player’s jersey number. It might spark a conversation with an unexpected fan. How about your favorite animal? Show your love for your best pooch pal. This added quirkiness will draw dog lovers to your shirt. Favorite food? Emoji? Gadget? Cartoon character? The list goes on.
Adding your initials can give a plain polo a bit of class and personalization. Get your initials written by a calligrapher online. There are a ton of Etsy sellers that create custom digital monograms for under 5 bucks!
• Original art
If you happen to be artistically inclined, why not rock your own work? It’s a great way to spark a conversation and give your talent its much deserved attention.
