Check This Out: Karen Walker’s Preppy Charm Jewelry Collection

The thing with preppy style is that sometimes it takes itself too seriously. Put on a seersucker jacket and some argyle, and all of a sudden, you’re unwittingly summing up a whole world of boarding school, the Hamptons, polo matches, and sailing (on that note, check out our intro to Lilly Pulitzer). Somehow, New Zealand designer Karen Walker has managed to make a jewelry collection that’s undeniably prepster, but stops far short of that manufactured-authentic look. Charm bracelets and necklaces come with chunky chains, bright colors, and outlined surfaces to give the accessories a younger and fresher feel. Charming, no? [Gargyle]
