On campus cool’s been elevated to a whole new meaning with this season’s crop of contemporary college inspired trends. Cardigans and letterman jackets are the hottest fashion property in this style, accompanied by sleek, androgynous pants styles and tapered skirts or preppy, pleated skirts and brogues.
The look comes along with a colour palette – royal blue, cherry red, cream and black are hot style statements that are as much a part of the trend as the styles on offer. Stripes are another hallmark of this fashion variety, with pinstripes and uniform Breton stripes giving the look a very clean, girl-next-door type silhouette.
The look may seem classically preppy and veers towards the androgynous, with prim, straight-leg khakis and trousers complementing white vests, striped cardigans and baseball jackets. If you want to pep the look up or soften it, a full circle or midi skirt is a perfect way to channel the era your own way.
For a spin on the brogue trend, try heeled lace-ups with this style for a little flair and another excuse to wear heels! A great way to incorporate the trend into your look is to throw on a cardigan or jacket over your favourite evening outfit. Or you can go all out with a pair of straight-leg or skinny denims (in red, black or grey) paired with a vest and cardigan, with baseball jacket thrown over it.
The look is perfect for chic accessories - try a slouchy messenger bag, tan satchel or cross body bag for a touch of preppy sophistication and on campus cool.
