Lacoste was HUGE when I was in high school. Absolutely huge. I went to a public school and we could wear whatever we wanted as long as our skirts/shorts were long enough and no tank tops or too much cleavage. Even without an imposed uniform, it seemed like everyone had a uniform: denim skirt + Lacoste polo.
When I go through old photos on Facebook, we are all just decked out in our Lacoste polos. I also had a couple of dresses from Lacoste that I coveted. If you are a devout TCP follower, you might remember a couple of them from my mirror selfie days on Instagram too as I brought them along to college.
I can’t even remember when I got this particular polo dress. It’s definitely a staple and wears well year after year. I throw it in the wash with regular clothes and then air dry it, but it’s never lost its coloring or shape.
PS I had to include this photo; I went back through Facebook to find it… It’s so 2006. The shoulder Coach bags, ribbon belts, and Lacoste polos. 😂
