Its not a fully preppy look but can be.
Its not a neat pulled together look.
Its not with maxis - think midi, midi, midi.
Sometimes think mini.
It isnt with pencil skirts so much as it is with fuller styles.
But the fullness is reserved for the bottom half, staying close to the hips & flipping out below that.
Sometimes its with pleats, sunray rather than box.
But the box pleats tend to show up for the preppy versions.
Its with relaxed slouchy sweaters & sweatshirts - think chunky, oversize (body & sleeves) & logos on the chest.
If you're petite - go lower scale on the "chunky" & keep the skirt no lower than knee length.
1. Pleated midis
2. Fitted & flared - these are the big ones for this trend
3. Circle skirt & A line styles
|Wear it with your bomber jacket for a really current look.|
4. The pencil
|One statement necklace is all that is necessary for this look. Since the sweater is chunky, |
layering fine pieces generally doesnt work as well.
|Dries Van Noten|
5. Mullet/boho style
6. Box pleat midi
7. Preppy mini
|Etoile Isabel Marant|
|You can bring this trend into the southern hemisphere's summer |
even though its before the official winter season.
8. With animal motifs
|Your boyish brogues will work wonderfully |
especially if your skirt is in a feminine fabric.
|Animal always rules!|
9. Short, flirty & extra youthful
|Dont forget colour blocking can work this trend very well.|
|Short skirt? Tights will always work for those of us older than 30 yo!|
10. Logo front
|This is real, but there are plenty of fakes which deliberately |
misspell the brand name to something funny like
Homies for Hermes or Feline for Celine.
PS: Did you notice that the shoes have moved away from chunky, boots and have gone more to single sole & ladylike? Its a great contrast to the relaxed look of the clothes.
