While Polo Ralph Lauren might be great for – wait for it – polo tops, it's also rather good at dishing out whatever-weather tees.

We're particularly fond of these striped numbers, which are great under knits or parkas or on their own for warm winter days. There's also a block-colour option that will look great with a pair of denims and your favourite trainers.

See it as a way to surprise people. While Polo Ralph Lauren might be preppy to some, to us it's a good-looking investment.
