Shirts that will keep you looking sharp this fall

We've seen a ton of retro looks this summer, and the throwback styles will continue to be a focus for fall. Whether you're feeling classic preppy plackets or 1980s Air Jordan color pallets, the key is to make the move your own and not look like you've time-traveled from another generation.

Here are five of our favorite period polos along with a few tips on how pull off the look.

The classic preppy polo with an extended contrast placket is already redefined in RLX's slim fit and performance fabrics. Balance the color pop with some slim gray trousers and this rig works from Labor Day through Thanksgiving.

Keep the acid wash jeans in the closet when you're wearing this 1980s-inspired color-blocked retro print. On or off the course, black pants and white sneaks are all you need to modernize this move.

Balance the 1970s vintage colors by wearing bright white bottoms. The white trousers will also pick up the contrast stitch around the sleeves and waist making the retro rig look young and athletic.

Channel some vintage Seve and pair this polo with navy trousers in the same shade. The look may be retro, but the fit and function of J. Lindeberg's performance gear is enough to take this look way past 2014.
