I don't about you but I tend to think of preppy style as a look that I generally associate with the summer.I'm thinking Breton stripes, chinos, blazers, boat shoes, gingham, pastels, red, white and blue... All totally summery. However this weekend I fancied wearing my navy stripe sweater (last seen here, with florals) and wondered if I could still do preppy style in autumn despite it being late October.
It felt only right to keep the palette mostly autumnal, so navy and mustard yellow seemed like a good bet - and tan accessories always work for me because they match my hair.
For such a bright and not-at-all-neutral pair of trousers (peg leg, probably my favourite trouser shape), they've been a pair that I'll turn to time and time again. I call it The In-Built "I'll Match Everything" System... (or TIBIMES for short).
