Preppy Details

Sweater Dress: Madewell; Chambray Top: American Eagle; Belt: Gap (similar); Shoes: DSW; Bag: H&M 

A collar buttoned up right to the neck feels fresh and crisp when paired with the right pieces. I'm not about to add suspenders and bermuda shorts here, but I do love the mix of chambray with a patterned knit dress, complete with a pair of refined, metallic boat shoes. In addition to done-up collars, I'm also really liking oversized bow ties over oxford shirts (Blaire of Atlantic-Pacific makes it looks so polished here)! Any thoughts? Share in the comments. I'd love to hear what you guys think.

  1. Super cute - Your look brings 'casual-refined' to my mind! Love the oversized bow tie look as well :)
