This post is basically because I've just been drawn to a lot of preppy clothes lately. And I don't mean "Abercrombie" preppy, no, things like Lacoste and Ralph Lauren- the REAL preppy. I'm loving cable-knit v-necks, striped button downs, and RL and Lacoste polos. Also, I'm quite scared my pearl earrings are going to be permanently attached to my earlobes- I'm wearing them so much! Keep in mind that these prep pieces are for the most part, classic and staples in anyone's closet- which means a lot of the times you have to pay the price for that. But most items are
things you'll wear again and again, so the prices aren't really bad at all. Here are some pieces I've been eyeing that would look great with the "preppy" look:
I love the classic and cool at the same time look of all Lacoste polos. Their fit is excellent and the quality of the material is quite good too. Besides that they are, well, ADORABLE in every way. I own a pink one and a lime one, but I really, really want a black one! I already have a navy RL Polo one, so I either want a black polo from RL Polo or Lacoste. This one would be great (hint, hint gift-givers): It's the Lacoste Stretch Pique Polo for $75
You can literaly never go wrong with a great bag, a white RL oxford, flats and (flattering, please!!!) dark jeans. A great ribbon belt like the one shown would also look fabulous. This oxford in particular has a great feminine fit without being revealing at all, it would look fabulous also with the sleeves rolled and scrunched up to show a cute charm bracelet...I'm thinking too much, again! It is the RL Blue Label Skinny Fit Oxford for $69.50.
This Tiffany and Co. bracelet is the perfect charm bracelet I was talking about! It's cute and girly, but it still maintains elegance, it just exudes classiness! Besides, who doesn't want to open a robin egg's blue box with white or red satin ribbon and find this bracelet? It is $450- just remember: investment, investment, investment!
I adore these Pumas! I seriously am considering buying them...my mom is who actually showed them to me (she has an awesome eye for stuff like this) and at first I was like they're Ok, but then I kept seeing them, and now I love them! The color is great with everything, and I would wear them to school so much because they match with my uniform. Yes I have a uniform. Anyways, I l adore them...the price is great too at $39.95!
I'm always on the lookout for an adorable makeup case and this Kate Spade one really fits the bill. I love the colors and the fact that it has peacocks-yes peacocks- on it, but not in an obvious "I
Peacocks" way. The bad thing is that it costs $50 which is quite a lot for a makeup case which makes me just want to stick with wanting a Lesportsac one for a much, much cheaper price.
Bring out the racquet and cute little white pleated tennis skirts because these are seriously too cute to not use! I know it is like not elegant to rattle around in the bushes over a lost tennis ball, but if it were one of these, I wouldn't give it a second thought! Also, they go for a great cause ,breast cancer, so nobody feels guilty! Not the salepeople, not the customer, not even...OK, you get the picture. They're Ralph Lauren Pink Pony for $10.
