This $38 Polo Dress Is Perfect for Summer Travel


Millennials will call it the Ralph Lauren aesthetic. Gen Z deems it “plazacore.” However you want to categorize it, the Ivy League look is in again — and polos are making a comeback, ready or not. 

If you’re like me and still little-”t” traumatized by the popped collars of the early aughts, fear not. The Hollister polos of our high school nightmares are still firmly secured in the time capsule. The 2024 version is less Laguna Beach and more Blair Waldorf. This elegant, on-trend, and comfy-enough-to-travel-in summer dress perfectly sums it up. 

Merokeety Polo V-neck Dress


Merokeety’s ribbed-knit maxi is a sweater dress made for warm destinations. Amazon reviewers say the material feels breathable, high quality, and soft against the skin. The dress creates a longline, bodycon silhouette, molding to curves and falling below the knee with elegant fishtail pleating. The details scream “chic” — the collar and pleats so “tennis-core” à la Zendaya, in TikTok terms. 

“Honestly never leave reviews but I had to on this one: [I] was so impressed with the quality, the fit, the flow, everything,” one reviewer wrote. “Going to buy in every color.” Another said the material “has heft and drapes well” and that the edge detail makes the dress look “classy and expensive.” You’d never guess it’s so comfortable.

Reviewers also love the versatility of this polo dress, which they say pairs well with heels and  sneakers alike. “Envisioned this with top buttons open, worn with sandals and a ‘jaunty’ white scarf for a casual dinner or strolling through a fun village,” one wrote. And that kind of versatility is exactly what you want in a travel outfit. 

The slinky sweater dress comes in 10 colors, including beige, black, navy, white, light blue, and wine red. Sizes range from small to XL. Since debuting in February, it has earned a 4.4-star average rating on Amazon. More than 500 shoppers have purchased it just in the past month.
