INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
NEW DROP: POLO RALPH LAUREN
By Steven Potter, 4 April 2019
Polo Ralph Lauren: the heritage-cum-streetwear brand famed for its signature mix of preppy investment pieces and capsule collections snapped up by hypebeasts and streetwear aficionados alike. With some fresh new PRL drops landing at ASOS, we thought we’d take a look at how three of our Insiders are repping for the 90s favourite this season.
Ever the smart-casual staple, there aren’t many pieces from Polo Ralph Lauren that don’t instantly give your look some polish. In terms of classics, the PRL button-down shirt is arguably the hero piece. Take a cue from ASOS Insider Lex and cop a forest-green option – team it with some beige PRL trews in a skinny (but not too skinny) cut. "Timeless" may be a fashion cliché, but…
Rooted in Stateside varsity culture, the brand has always been a go-to for some Ivy-league inspiration. ASOS Insider Thomas got the memo with that collegiate-style logo tee and joggers combo, complete with iconic branding and contrast side stripe. For the transitional spring weather, complete the look with a multicolour check shirt, tapping into the bright theme currently ruling the season.
PRL covers understated with considered aplomb, but that doesn’t mean you can make a statement with some of its drops. ASOS Joshua serves up a lesson in boldness by pairing PRL’s iconic flag-print polo with a plain button-down over the top, channelling a more 90s-based aesthetic. To complete the look, some slim sunnies and skater-fit jeans keep the nostalgia levels peaking. Top marks.
