Style 101: Intro to Prep Club

The Prep Club collection is intended to update traditional fall patterns with a bold color palette that can seamlessly transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. Inspired by Italian & New York street style and collegiate aesthetics, the collection centers around the primary colors red, green, and blue. Mixing colors and bringing in more accessories is essential to achieve that casual cool vibe. Here are a few styling tips on how to master the first of fall…

Primary Palette - These colors are classic for a reason. Inspired by French and Italian street style, this primary color palette was designed to be worn together. Mixing these colors, creates the perfect transitional look for early fall. Above, the blue hue is styled in the earrings and as a pattern in the blazer to break up the solids. A touch of green and red is styled in more minimally to achieve that multi-colored look.

Add a Hat - The versatility of the trucker hat makes it the essential accessory to balance out any outfit. With this collection, the trucker hat pairs well with a preppy look, adding a bit of edge to the classier style. Adding a hat is an easy way to achieve that smart casual look and tie in another bold color that puts that final touch on an outfit.

Layered Looks - Fall means layering and throwing a blazer over a sweatshirt is a simple way to get that casual cool look. Rather than wear the blazer in the traditional fashion, it can be just the right accent to dress up a crewneck. Pro tip- find fun with color, the first of fall is a great time to transition from the bright hues of summer into the neutrals that come later in the season so think about mixing a neutral sweatshirt with a bold patterned or colored blazer.  

Ring Stacking - Switching up your day-to-day rings by playing with color, accents, metals, and size is the perfect way to finish your styling. Even think about adding in gemstones or opting for a larger statement ring that complements your outfit. Other tips - make sure to balance both hands, using a mix of delicate and bold rings to add a bit of dimension to your fingers.  

Embrace the upcoming season by experimenting with bold colors, layering accessories, and playing with trends that elevate traditional sophisticated looks. Find inspiration in the styling of this collection and lean into your personal style aesthetic to make your fall fashion truly stand out.
