Funkin’ Prep

20 Oct

I’m in love with Ralph Lauren Rugby. For those of you unfamiliar, it is just as it sounds: a line of clothing inspired by the sporting look of Rugby uniforms combined with an undercurrent of the UK but bubbled neatly in all-American classic style.  Then, it’s reimagined to fit an urban-cool, funk-a-licious prepster of any metropolitan city (or a really daring suburbinite). The colors are right, the stylings are fresh, innovative and captivating, and the quality, well, it’s Ralph Lauren after all.

Here is what I mean…

Plaid of the prepster, distressed and rolled-up jeans, proper heels, girly ruffles, and a newsboy cap. Could more styles end up in one outfit so harmoniously? Probably not.

Fair Isle sweater dress with a wide neck that shows off a more intersting, but subdued pattern. The tie adds a droplet of masculine style that peeks out and the leggings provide a special layer of femininity, lest we forget, we're girls.

Hello Highland-ess! This kilt makes you want to draw your dirk but the leggings and heels remind you that you're dealing with a woman. The shirred shoulders soften an otherwise classic pattern of plaid, and the hat "tops it off" with a funky personality.
