Zip up polo sweaters have become the ultimate essential piece for me this spring. They’re super comfortable and elevate an outfit even when styled in a casual way. I’ve been wearing the below zip up polo sweater a ton since finding it at Shop Bop earlier this spring.
If you’re someone who regularly likes wearing hoodies or crew necks, you might love the look of a zip up polo sweater. It’s a versatile and polished alternative to wearing a sweatshirt, and has been adopted by both streetwear and luxury designers. Zip up polo sweaters were very popular in the 70’s, so it’s safe to say that they’re making the biggest comeback of all time since then!

How I Styled My Zip Up Polo Sweater
I’ve styled this neutral toned half zip polo sweater with a pair of white straight leg jeans and white sneakers. It’s a great everyday look that requires minimal effort, yet looks pulled together. If you have a busy day ahead of you and comfort is a must – this is the perfect outfit to wear to take on the day!
Biker shorts continue to be a staple piece in many women’s athletic wardrobes, and paired with a zip up polo sweater they make for a great athleisure outfit. Biker shorts can be versatile, I’ve even paired them with an oversized button down striped shirt. I love the sporty, laid back style of athleisure because it’s just as effortless as the way it looks.
A denim skirt is such a classic piece, and paired with the zip up polo, together they have a sporty, preppy vibe when anchored with sneakers. Make it more date night than a recreational day out on the boat by choosing a pair of on trend braided sandals.
I love the casual summer workwear vibes of this outfit, swap out a pair of cream or nude closed toe heels to take it even further into 9 to 5 chic territory. These sleek cream pants are Ralph Lauren. Yes they were pricey, though they were worth the investment as they fit perfectly, and I’ve had them for years. I’ve linked several pants in a range of price points below.
What are your thoughts on the zip up polo sweater? Are you a fan or do you remain loyal to the classic hoodie?

I tend to go for the classic hoodie but you make me want to go out an buy a polo sweater. I really like the white one in the first row that you linked. the Exaggerated collar is a really cool twist on a classic piece!
Thank you Tracy! I know what you mean, I love a hoodie with a denim jacket over it, though think the zip up polo is actually more versatile, you can get away with it just about anywhere by styling it in so many ways xo Jaimie
