For decades, Fashionistos with a preppy sense of style have been drawn towards classic garments with clean lines and practicality. On any given day, preps can be spotted donning several go-to pieces at one time. From button-downs to chinos and neckties to cufflinks, there are plenty of options for the dapper fellow.
I spotted today’s Fashionisto rocking several staples that all college preps have stocked in their wardrobe. This prepster’s button-down layered under his argyle sweater creates an eye-catching array of shades of blue and is such a classic way to sport color while looking sharp and stylish. Opting for a modern and casual touch, this Fashionisto toned down his look with sneakers instead of the expected footwear normally paired with an ensemble like so.
Today’s preppy Fashionisto sported a look that is best for a handful of occasions. The formal element of the button-down and sweater paired with super-casual sneakers is a match that any Fashionisto can benefit from. This look is perfect for a date, presentation or Sunday morning outings with family.
Hint: Donning a sweater as we get closer to summer might seem regrettable, but a lightweight and well-designed piece can still be a practical garment in your wardrobe this season. As always, a pop of color will never bore, especially with an updated twist on a classic pattern. When searching for the perfect sweater that best suits your occasion, keep this garment’s versatility in mind. A lightweight sweater can easily transition from season to season, layered and styled any way you’d like.
