if there’s one designer that has preppy style down pat it’s ralph lauren. a preppy look can be a bit sporty, but if done right its key elements will add uncomplicated chic to your office attire.
a great choice for a nine-to-five look is this houndstooth cardigan with faux leather trim. this cardi would look great with a pencil skirt or a pair of blue jeans. but today, i chose a jersey dress. what an effortless fabric to wear all year round. classic accessories such as an equestrian-inspired belt, and riding boots add a dash of preppy flair. i dressed up this ootd with a white blouse. but the silver cuff bracelet and hoop earrings reinforce the details found on the jacket and belt buckle.
anyone notice the best accessory of all? that’s right, a white mercedes with black details was the perfect backdrop to my black and white outfit. some days, you just get lucky!
