    Sweaters can work if it's a half or a full zip. Cardigans can be used as well (though go for a more fitted fit than your grandfather's baggy one.)

    I personally would stick to cardies, sweaters, coats and scarves. Sweaters may or may not work, depending on fabric/design. Zippered ones as already mentioned, definitely. Crew neck, possibly. V-neck, not convinced personally. Buttoned shirts layer better over T-shirts than polos in my opinion.

    I layer t-shirts, longsleeved or short, over polos all the time. A v-neck works especially well.

    I can't see why any decent stylish cool weather item would not work with a polo. Perhaps you shoulld post a picture of what you're thinking of going over a polo.

    A v-neck sweater would work. Also, I'd try making the polo shirt the outerpiece with a long sleeved shirt underneath the polo. Alternatively, the long sleeve shirt could be a buttonless henley and/or a long sleeved thermal shirt.

    mrchapel- thanks i think i'm going to try that look

    and for those of you who suggested v-neck sweaters, would i tuck in my polo as i would if i were wearing a button down underneath? do i keep my collar under the sweater or is it ok for the collar to be hanging out?

    thanks

    Personal preference, although if you're slim and it is long enough, tucking in the polo could keep it from causing the sweater to bunch up.

    As you've seen from the responses above, there are a lot of possibilities for keeping up your polos during the cold weather. I have actually had good luck with sweaters and polos, although it looks best in my opinion if you wear a complementing sweater and polo.
