It’s a timeless classic. The American Prep, a way of life and no doubt a way of dress. And although it never really goes “out” of style it certainly has it moments when it hits harder, spreads out from The Hamptons and makes it way into the trend files. This Spring would be no exception. I know that most of us are still trying to stay dry or fearing snow storms but perhaps planning and scheming your Spring wardrobe can be your light at the end of Winters tunnel.
Now, don’t think you have to go multiple polo’s, collars popped, topped off with ye ole’ sweater around ye ole’ shoulders. You can incorporate certain prepster elements into your look without going full-on L.L. Bean catalog. Polo’s are nice, a crisp collared shirt, chino’s, a tiny navy blazer, or madras plaid will do the trick. Accessories like boat shoes (I am loving the purple tie-dye Sperry Bahama’s!!), loafers (with or without the penny) and classic Tretorn sneakers in eye popping yellow or go for a play on the classic white Nylites in all leather…all are fer-sure ways to add a little Buffy in your life. And let’s not ignore handbag labels like Dooney & Burke. I’ve spied many a gal as of late sporting a classic “all weather leather” Dooney bag…might I suggest the Commemorative Duck Bag? I really want one…in every color. Maybe the Biff in your life will see to it that you’re taken care of.
