Jennifer Garner Is Resurrecting This 2000s Style With the Help of Victoria Beckham
Do you ever wonder what happened to polos? Me neither, usually. Jennifer Garner, though, just wore one by Victoria Beckham, so naturally, I can't stop thinking about them, where they went, and what they'll be up to in 2022.
Polos are a hallmark of the prep style that Gossip Girl helped bring back to prominence in the mid-2000s. But currently, the bedazzled Juicy Couture aesthetic of The Simple Life is the look that's reigning supreme from this era. Everyone wants to look like a Bratz doll, not an American Girl doll. Except Garner: She styled a striped Victoria Beckham cashmere long-sleeve polo with a knee-length black skirt and The Row suede loafers just a couple days into the new year.
Leave it to Jen to go against the grain and just wear what she wants. While this sweater isn't quite as casual as her favorite pants of all time, it still fits the bill for the comfortable and easy outfits she's known for wearing. Plus, polos are the most formal-looking cozy sweater, which means you can easily throw them on when you want to look put-together but not freeze. More than a handful are on sale at Nordstrom right now, like this red scalloped option by Boden and this ribbed sweater by Rag & Bone. And who's to say American Doll-core won't be the next big thing?
