Grace Bernal’s California Style: Prepping

Style 02 23Welcome back preppy style! What does the preppy look represent? To me it’s tidy comfort but to some it may mean following the rules of fashion. I’ll stick with neat comfort! The look is very basic and although it dates back to the 60s, it’s looking very cool today. You can play out this look with a lot of twists to detail. Preppiness is very captivating when you see the big picture. You can be rebellious if you’d like, and take the neat out of prep and go punk with plaid pins, and zippers. Or, if you wish, you can simply knot a loose sweater around the shoulders and go classic. Don’t forget the fanny pack with a pair of pearl earrings to get the look into real prep mode. Another thing is taking a pair of chinos and rolling them up and adding an unexpected piece to your outfit to make pop. The trend is perfect for the current weather. Go wild with your khaki or polo piece! You can do anything with it, like taking your outfit to work, sporting a pair of loafers to the office and then turning it around with a pump for the evening event. Get to prepping!

“I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to build some kind of lifestyle brand that was preppy and cool.” Tommy Hilfiger
