All Eyes on 2021’s Polo Shirt Trends

Posted June 18, 2021 by Diana Fernandez

As always, polo shirts are a wardrobe staple that exists in the lives of many consumers. Between comfortable yet polished styles that are uniquely designed for both work from home and the office, and styles that include technical benefits to stay dry on the golf course, this item has made it to the top of every buyer’s list.

Since golf spiked in popularity throughout the pandemic and continues to be on the rise, let’s go over a few trends we’ve been seeing within the polo shirt sector.

Polos with a Purpose

In last year’s PGA Orlando show, sustainability was a key topic amongst big apparel companies. Whether it was through give-back programs, creating eco-friendly styles, or improving manufacturing processes to be more environmentally friendly, even in 2021, the movement to be more sustainable is not going anywhere.

The Vansport Planet Polo is made with comfortable, high-quality Repreve recycled polyester and keeps 10 water bottles from entering our oceans and landfills.

Better Made Basics

Since wearables are the longest lasting promotional product that can be decorated on, polos that hold their quality over time with comfortable fabrics, feature value-added benefits, and are completely timeless will be key for golf events.

Our best-selling, performance tested, and moisture wicking Vansport Omega Solid Mesh Tech Polo keeps fresh during active wear and is engineered with Vansport fabric that resists snags and pulls. Retail brands like Polo Ralph Lauren also include better made basics like the Active Fit Golf Polo Shirt which is made with breathable stretch jersey and moisture-wicking properties to keep you cool and comfortable.

Prints and Patterns

Bring even more style to the course with fun prints and patterns that don’t sacrifice the airy and technical benefits of a golf shirt. Striped patterns have become very popular on the course due to their coastal and resort-inspired vibes.

Our Vansport Pro Riviera Polo packs a punch featuring a fresh airy striped design and premium performance features like moisture-wicking and UV protection. Another great option is our Greg Norman Protek Micro Stripe Polo that leads the field in technical performance and has very subtle striped-print design in a variety of bright and fun color options.

For the Ladies

We can’t forget about the ladies who enjoy a good game on the golf course all while sporting apparel that is functional yet fashionable. Styles that include silhouettes that look great on all body types, include flattering necklines, and stand-up collars are great for women in golf.

Our Women’s Vansport Pro Horizon Polo is flattering for all with stretch for comfort, open applied self-goods placket, and front and back princess seams for a slimming appearance. For a retail brand option, go for the Polo Ralph Lauren Women’s Tour Polo shirt made from stretch jersey performance fabric that is designed to be cool to the touch and transfer moisture away from the skin. Its 3 snap buttons and flattering neckline make this a superior option for the ladies.
