I spotted this Fashionisto at a friend’s house sporting a traditional and timeless preppy styled outfit. I love preppy styles on men because it is a classic, clean look that men can easily wear. Wearing a burnt orange V-neck sweater with a striped blue and white button down collared shirt underneath along with khakis and brown leather loafers, this Fashionisto should have sent in a submission to CollegeFashionista’s Ivy League contest!
The color pallet of this outfit coordinates with the timeless preppy style as the burnt orange color from the sweater and the blue from the blue and white striped butto down collared shirt contrast and complement each other. J.Crew has a cotton-cashmere sweater in vintage apricot just like this Fashionisto’s that would look great with Banana Republic’s slim-fit bar striped shirt in blue and white. Although this Fashionisto and I are fans of C-neck sweaters, some men prefer crewnecks so this J.Crew cotton-cashmere crewneck sweater would also look great with a collared shirt underneath. If you’re looking for something different, yet still preppy, try this J.Crew collared cardigan that would also look good with a collared shirt underneath. When it comes to preppy, you apparently can never have too many collars.
Lastly are his loafers or as some prefer to call them, drivers. Macy’s has these Sperry Top-Sider drivers similar to the Fashionisto’s. A little different from the Fashionisto’s loafers are these Polo Ralph Lauren penny drivers. If you want to try something different I recommend these Diesel lace-up boots to add some edge to your look or these Converese oxfords or Sebago saddle oxfords to further enhance your “preppy-ness.”
Preppy outfit or style is a timeless look, especially when it comes to college campuses, so find your inner Ivy League!
