The class nerd’s wardrobe is suddenly so in vogue! From button ups to zip downs, from scalloped collars to tailored blazers, preppy chic is the new fashion crush this season. Take a cue from DKNY, Tory Burch, Mulberry or D&G for a super chic ‘College librarian-meets – Alexa Chung’ look.
My personal pick is a pair of easy fitting trousers with suspenders, heels and a sleek blazer over a simple white vest top. Throw on a woven scarf and you’re good to go!
A simpler option is a bold stripped knee-length dress worn over opaque leggings and low-cut booties. A cross body satchel bag and a sleeveless hoodie would complete the look.
Hair: The French Braid, Ribbon-ed hair bands, neat pins and clips…bid goodbye to the messy do!
Autumn Winter 2011: The prim and the Propah!
Think button up shirts, polo necks, bow ties and peter pan collars would ever be in fashion? They are now, and boy, do they look good! It’s like Julie Andrews from the Sound of Music just got a sexy makeover in 2011. Check these super chic pieces for some inspiration for your autumn winter ’11 closet.
Add a string of pearls or chunky bracelet to complete your look. Large buckle up shoes, low booties, loafers and brogues define ‘preppy chic’. The ankle socks and buckle ups look cute too but they’re not age appropriate for everyone.
Okay so it’s prim-and-propah season, but it’s also 2011! Add your own lil touch to the neat and ‘well turned out’ preppy look- How about a button up bow tie collar worn with ripped blue denim?
