A few years ago I bought this madewell crochet polo top (exact item pictured below). I love the texture of crochet or open work in summer. However I have never been able to get this top to work on me!

On my body it is shorter than on the model, and it kind of inches its way up around my shoulders when I wear it, becoming quite cropped in front while the polo neck finds itself quite far back, so it looks like a v neck. I’ve tried mixing it with leather pants for textural interest, throwing it over a slim black dress for coverage, etc etc. but somehow it looks sloppy, sloppy, sloppy.
It has no buttons or fastenings on the placket.

In general I prefer a trim, neat, high neck. Like Angie I have short hair and a long neck. Is this just the wrong neckline for me? I see polo necks are trending… can this one be redeemed?
