Prep It Up

September 15, 2010

Thrifted blouse, vintage skirt, H&M scarf, Dolce Vita boots from Shoe Gypsy

There are so many great preppy looks for fall.  I don’t see myself wearing a plaid mini anytime real soon, but I can certainly dig a long, kiltier version like the one I found recently.  Growing up in the 80’s, I am naturally drawn to anything from that era.  I truly thought high school was going to be a John Hughes movie relived.  Wow was I wrong.  But I can’t help loving the hints of prep that have worked their way back into fashion once again this season.  I’m  not generally a Tommy Hilfiger fan, but I must say, some of his fall runway looks were pretty great.  From the high waisted pants, to the subtle tweeds and over sized blazers, things are definitely moving back a few decades.  I don’t necessarily welcome every new trend but Watts from Some Kind of Wonderful is still my 80’s hero…. so I’ll just sit back and enjoy the ride!

    I saw that stirrup pants are back too. I’m not sure how I feel about the return of the 80’s.

    I welcome all things 80’s. Sadly I rocked the 80’s the first time, not sure if I can do again at almost 40!! I’ve got to say it all comes right back, kind of like riding a bike. Love it!!
