Chic, sophisticated and glamorously demure, preppy fashion has long been a timeless style influence on designers, socialites and aristocracy around the world. Ideal for Spring, when clean lines, crisp color blocking, and light accessories drive the style must-haves of the season, prep influence has evolved to blend long-standing staples of the look – sleek pants and skirts, oversized sunglasses, elegant handbags and lady-like tops – with the modern fashion trends, colors and prints of the moment. The result? Classic, preppy elegance with a current, updated feel perfect for uptown, downtown, all-over town wear. Are you prepped for Spring?
