I love the preppy style. I think it's polished and perfect for any occasion. But sometimes, I like to mix things up with my wardrobe, and I love taking preppy pieces and giving them a different look. Today, I went with an edgy twist on a preppy classic: a leather-trimmed tweed jacket!
I'm obsessed with this AE Collarless Zippered Jacket, surprisingly from American Eagle (originally $79.95, now on sale $39.95). It's so comfortable and it crops at the perfect length. It is difficult to tell from the picture, but the jacket is cream colored with blue and sparkly detailing! The best part of this jacket is the faux-leather trim! It gives it that edgy look I was going for!
This Lily White Skater Skirt ($28.00) is a staple in my wardrobe. Every girl should own at least one skater skirt, and what color is better than classic black? This skirt is flowy, soft, and the perfect length (it's not too short and not too long!) Of all my skater skirts, I like this one the best because it fits just right!
If you're looking for a basic long sleeve shirt, this Caslon Long Sleeve Fine Ribbed Crewneck Tee is absolutely perfect! It's only $25.00 and comes in every color imaginable! This is a great, basic shirt that can be worn all year long, and the quality is great!
I am also wearing my Tory Burch Sunglasses, black high socks from Macy's, and my Vince Camuto 'Volero' boots. Taking totally separate styles and mixing them together into one look is a great way to create a fashionable outfit!
