The Preppy Look.
Updated: Sep 26, 2019
Since Lisa Birnbach’s, The Preppy Handbook, was first published in 1980, I have loved this look. There are many ways to make it personal. When I was in college in the early 80’s, my favorite outfit was a pink Ralph Lauren button-down shirt, a pair of Levi’s jeans, and my crocodile cowboy boots that I bought in Ft. Worth, Texas.
The preppy look is a great staple particularly in the summer and Ralph Lauren is the king of this style which is why I regularly follow his collection. His summer look book is out and there are some really fun pieces His collection for women includes beautiful lamè and foil print metallics with pleated skirts
I was particularly drawn to the fall preview piece a patchwork down jacket. Patchwork is already starting to break out as a fall trend.
I’ll be writing a full report on the fall trends once I return from LA in early August.
