Prim and Proper: English Prep

This is not your polo wearing, popped collar prep, this style comes to us from across the pond.  Clean lines, classics silhouettes, feminine frills, tweeds and plaids are distinguishing traits for this style. Inspired by traditional prep-school uniforms and the English countryside this type of look is the epitome of autumn.

Combine cords with a plaid blazer, try a trench over a frilly blouse with dark denim, or timeless tweed with a simple sheath.  The requisite riding boot is the culmination of your English Prep creation.  Lovely loafers or charming oxfords are other proper possibilities.
