On Friday I went to a Fun. concert. Like, the band Fun. And it was really fun. And all this fun talk is getting very confusing. Anyway, to the point: lead singer Nate Ruess put on a great show, and his look was on point: rolled skinny jeans, white oxfords, and a classic navy blazer. After the concert not only did I have “We Are Young” stuck in my head for the rest of the weekend (and possible the rest of my life), I was dying to steal Nate’s preppy/hipster style for myself. I’ll totally be rocking this look with a messy bun and hot pink lipstick. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
Sofia Coppola kind of has it all: the insanely cool career; the rock star husband; the Hollywood royalty background. And oh, she looks way stylish and cool all the time. We saw her outfit at the “Meek’s Cutoff” screening and had to have it. So without further ado, we give you Sofia’s superb style, after the jump! Keep reading »
Somehow I grew up in the preppiest place in the world and still managed to never have one of those monogrammed L.L. Bean tote bags that inform the world your name is “Muffy” or whatever. But monogrammed iPhone wallpaper? I want now. The 3initials app, $1.99 from the iTunes store, lets you pick a variety of preppy fonts and colors — mostly pink and green, natch — and saves your monogram into your photo album. Tap it to make your monogram into your iPhone wallpaper. It’s easier than popping your collar! [3initials.com] Keep reading »
Despite our ardent attempts to stave off the return of “preppy” as a trend, it seems the popped collar is upon us and seersucker is having a full-on-moment. Again. Rather than continuing the noble fight to make pastel pants for men a thing of the past, we’re joining the multitudes and getting our prep on. The folks over at Flavorwire, too, have skeptically jumped on the bandwagon, rounding up the Top 40 pop culturally relevant preppies of all time. Carlton Banks, we salute you and your ever-present shoulder sweater! [Flavorwire] Keep reading »
Is that … could these really be … American Apparel models? But they’re not wearing plaid, thick glasses, or neon. These boys actually look kind of preppy. And dare we even say it? Hot.
Among American Apparel’s latest men’s collection are some decidedly non-hipster looks that we haven’t quite seen from the retailer before. Among the styles are collegiate blouse/sweater combos and smart, fitted pants. All in all, these buttoned-up dudes look less like they just came from an MGMT concert, but rather like they’re off to Poly Sci 202 at Harvard. Could it be that American Apparel is embracing “alternative” fashions? Keep reading »
