It may be that I will always be a preppy deep, deep, deep inside my heart. All those years dressed as one might probably never go away, no matter how many layers of Rick Owens I pile on. In the last few years, after receiving multitudes of J.Crew catalogs each season, I have been totally won over! I found myself spreading pages of the catalog wide open while I inspect, reflect and pick apart looks for days and days. (My favorite ones get saved up along with my other paraphernalia of inspirations.) In fact, as of late, I have started welcoming back long-banished preppy-ish staples like oxfords and chinos (funnily enough, mostly shopped from J.Crew men’s department). Because if Erin Wasson, the ultimate model-off-duty, can look properly preppy-fied whilst looking absolutely cool, then anyone can.
