Rugby shirts are great because they never go out of style and work with shorts and pants. The White Rugby Stripe Top by Splendid has twisted banding and a single button at the split V-neck, button-tab gathers at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It comes in two colors, tofu and atlantic.

The Hetta Sweater by Marc by Marc Jacobs is a cute polo top with stripes, a single button at the chambray fold-over collar, four hidden buttons at the neck, ribbed banding at the hem, rolled edge at the cuffs, and short dolman sleeves. From afar, it doesn't look like a sweater, but it is indeed knit.

The 4 Band Stripe Top by Splendid is the type of casual top the Shirt Snob loves to wear with her favorite pair of old jeans. This polo has a fold over collar, seven buttons at the front, solid banding at the placket and cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. We wish it was available in more than one color!

We haven't featured a polo shirt in a while, so we've found a cute one for you!

It's available in three colors: white, black, and new romantics.

If you are sick of the usual button down blouse, the Penny Dot Jersey Polo by Marc by Marc Jacobs makes it a lot more fun. It has a crazy dot print with a fold over collar, six buttons down the front, banding and ruching at the cuffs, short sleeves, and a patch pocket at the bust. If you want to stand out, there's no better top for it!

The Nancy Sweater by Marc by Marc Jacobs is a good top to wear when hanging around the house on a cold winter day. It's casual, cozy, and warm. There are seven buttons down the front, button flap pockets at the bust, metallic trim under the collar and metallic backing at the cuffs and bottom hem, and long sleeves. If you want something a little more casual that still is a part of the metallic trend going on right now, this is a good option for you.

The Shirt Snob is on the lookout for a nice polo top, so we are super excited to find the Long Sleeve Polo by Charlotte Ronson. This top has six buttons down the bust, a crest patch at the front, a contrast fold-over collar, ribbed banding at the placket and cuffs, slits at the sides, and long sleeves. It's an interesting choice to put brown and grey together, but we think it works really well in this case!

The Shirt Snob grew up seeing a lot of Lacoste tops, so it is a brand we have always felt very comfortable with. We can't help but love their preppy looking polos and sweaters. Here are two Lacoste tops that we like right now. First up is the Long Sleeve V-Neck Sweater. It has white and blue striped banding at the cuffs and V-neck, banding at the bottom hem, and the signature logo on the left chest.
Then there's the 3/4 Sleeve Stripe Polo. This polo is different from the others that have been popular in the last few years because of the contrast collar and placket. This top also has 3/4 length sleeves and is available in black and white.

Since we don't show you enough polos, we thought it was time for another. The Collared Striped V Neck Top by Splendid is a striped top with a fold-over collar, three buttons at the bust, and short sleeves. If you want something a little preppy, this is for you.

You might be shocked to know that after over 1000 posts, this is the first polo we've ever written about. It's especially funny because the Shirt Snob loves polos. The Taffy Striped Top by Alex Gaines is a great one to start off this new category. It has banding around the scoop collar, blue and brown stripes, and puffed sleeves. If you love polos, definitely check out this one!
