As a result of the emergence of activewear dating back to the 19th century, the polo shirt has since become recognizable as one of the most classic examples of time honored style. Typically linked to high society sports/casual wear, there are no limitations on how to style the item in today's world especially with the option of seeking out updated styles like elongated collars, or striped fabrics as presented above. 

Undoubtedly, the attraction that lies with the polo shirt is its ability to serve as a complimentary, and layering piece. That being said, here's one way to style the striped polo this summer: 

A striped polo shirt pairs very well with a suit. Double breasted, or single breasted is a good call. A representative example is the double breasted linen suit featured above - a straightforward selection simple enough to showcase the detail of the striped polo shirt. If you are looking to add more of a casual flair to what could possibly read as a more dressed up/semi formal ensemble, tossing in a more relaxed footwear option like espadrilles will do the job.
