I know this blog is only a couple days old, so nobody really knows my style yet. So to help explain my style, I’ll tell/ show you my three favorite brands. They are Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren. All three are classic preppy brands and all work well with my personal style. I came to like these brands a few years ago when I was first introduced to Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren. Both are in an outlet mall (now joined by Lacoste). I had always been interested in the prep style, but never knew how to properly execute it. At the time, Ralph Lauren clothing was way out of the budget, so I had to stick to the good sales at Tommy Hilfiger. The entire feel of the store was what drew me in, dark woods with burgundy accents, good stuff. Since then I have bought things from Ralph Lauren and am loving every purchase (well worth the money for the quality)! Not too long ago, I acquired my first article of Lacoste clothing, a 100% cotton navy sweater. Easily my favorite piece of clothing in my wardrobe! I also bought some Lacoste polos and since then I am completely sold on the brand.
The great thing about preppy brands is that they go for quality. One sweater from Ralph Lauren will last you too many years to count. The other great thing about prep is that it will never go out of style. Trends will change, but everyone will always know that you’re prep.
