How One Accessory Gives This Outfit The Preppy Look

Yup. I was one of those kids that went to a fancy “Boarding School.”  I never wanted to go, but my parents thought it best to send their kid overseas far far away, for better education and better opportunities. The Result? I became a better rebel, and better at knowing the in’s and out’s of the Preppy Look. I was thrust into a world of girls, pearls, pinstripes and classics. So here’s the twist. When putting on the long chain pearl necklace, I knotted it like a tie, giving it that preppy boarding school look – especially with the blazer. Take away the pearl necklace, not as preppy. The lines are clean and classic. The look is chic and timeless. Some days it’s good not being such a rebel. [See Pearl necklace styled as a belt HERE]
