How To: Pulling Off Preppy Style For Spring

Nantucket Prep

I was lucky enough to attend a special event last week with Details magazine for the reopening of the Tommy Hilfiger store in Soho, New York. The Tommy team was kind enough to outfit me for the evening in some great pieces from the designer’s latest Spring collection. Everything about my outfit had that classic American style that designer Tommy Hilfiger has been known for. When you think of spring “preppy,” you picture light sun faded colors, crisp whites, even some nautical hints, all in a sophisitcated yet simple execution.

Here’s some tips for pulling off this preppy look on your own. Start with a great pair of chinos in a light pastel color like a pale yellow or faded red for a worn-in New England feel. For a blazer, try something lightweight like an unstructured cotton blazer in a sun-washed blue like the one I’m wearing here. When it comes to your shirt, go for casual comfort. A nice tartan or madras pattern will help to break up the solid colors. As for shoes, a classic boat shoe or derby in a neutral shade will easily complete your look. And remember, the key to this style is classic yet relaxed sophistication so have fun and don’t over-think it!

    Roll up your pants slightly to show off some skin b/w the ankle and the shoes and you are ready to look “in-season”.
