It’s a timeless piece that deserves a place in every wardrobe. The humble polo punches well above its weight, combining a smart silhouette with easy-care credentials and maximum room to move. In fact, it works just as well in a corporate-casual setting as it does for a busy healthcare shift – you just need to know how to style it. Here are three easy ways to incorporate the hardworking staple into your nine-to-five wardrobe, whatever the day holds for you.

1. Classic casual

When your work environment requires a more relaxed approach to dressing, a well-cut polo fits the bill. Whether worn in a hands-on Allied Health role or a busy hospitality setting, the smart silhouette lends a professional feel to easy separates. Our Antibacterial Polyface Short Sleeve Polo [CATJ2M and CATU58] comes in a rainbow of shades – from subtle to standout – and offers a neat, ribbed collar and cuffs, which elevate the shape. Wear the split hemline loose for a laidback vibe or tuck yours into a pair of tailored Chino Shorts [CATCHQ] or our Chino Skirt [CAT2NU] for extra style credit. Just add fresh, white sneakers for a crisp finish. On cooler days, throw on a Zip-Neck Jumper [CATE37] that layers perfectly with the polo’s collar.





2. Room to move.

So, you need to look pulled together while working on your feet all day. Pick a polo. In fact, pick the Antibacterial Polyface Tipped Polo [CATJA2 & CATUF7], which comes in cuts for men and women. The contrasting flashes of white on the body, collar, cuffs and buttons add interest while delivering a flattering, streamlined effect. Paired with smart yet stretchy cotton Chinos [CATCNM], the result is both comfortable and capable while delivering plenty of elbow room. It’s an ideal choice for Allied Health workers, from carers to physios and OT; when you’re on the move, you’ll really appreciate the easy-care, lightweight construction these purpose-built pieces offer.





3. Professional polish.

Think you can’t wear a polo to a corporate office? Think again. Styled with the right tailoring, it’s perfect for work. Choosing an elevated design is key, such as the Textured Short Sleeve Polo [CATJA4 & CATUF9] which employs a refined two-tone fabric and a modern closer cut. Tuck yours into relaxed suiting and add a leather belt [CAT0KC] and loafers for a business-like approach that still feels effortless to wear.
