Growing up in the Midwest I have ingrained in me a love of being preppy. Yes, I admit it. Give me a polo, pearls and plaid shorts any day of the week and I’ll be thrilled. My roommates tease me when I declare it “plaid short season” in reference to the time of year when boys begin to start wearing them.
Unfortunately, life in San Francisco does not allow for such thrills quite as often, but it does make it all the more exciting when I do see them (enter strolls in the Marina here).
My favorites of all time are Ralph Lauren and J.Crew. Search my closet and you’re guaranteed to find a whole lot of articles that bear those labels. J.Crew provides endless amounts of effortlessly chic, but casual clothes that are able to be paired with one another. I’m in love with their shoes and jackets most of all.
And of course, a WITs closet wouldn’t be complete without a stream of polos in various colors, collars popped of course. RL’s stripped oxfords also make it easy to get dressed, but still look put-together and preppy.
There could not be a better time to bring the prep out of your closet as right now. So don the popped collars, bright colors and enjoy going preppy this Spring!
