So you all know how I'm wearing the shizz out of my pleated Terranova pants while I still can, so here's a quick preppy take on what's turning out to be a wardrobe essential:
striped blazer is supposedly a new spring 2012 thang, but I confess I've had mine since 2006, when I was 25 pounds lighter (observe how it strains to close). Eh, for accessorizing / insulating from the aircon, it's fine. It also goes to show, preppy clothes investments pays off! (Blazer, Rustans)
1) Wearing these trousers with chunky block heels (Old Navy) lengthens the leg and counters the thigh-area chunk added by the pleats.
2) A skinny brown belt (SM Department Store) keeps everything streamlined and chic.
3) Plain white shirts = no fail. This one, with a bow, was purchased from an officemate in 2008. (label-less).
4) The only thing is outfit is missing? A neck party. Multiple strings and chains would've added interest and prevented it from becoming too preppy. Next time!
