A Pop Of Prep

It’s time to renew your Country Club Membership…

With the warmer weather fast approaching (in the Northern Hemisphere at least), embrace a leisurely Summer spent playing tennis & lying by the pool.

Take your cue from the Spring / Summer 2012 collections, where Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney and Christopher Kane, showed effortless daytime dressing with a preppy pop.

Rewrite poolside dress codes with sweet matching short sets (think of Stella McCartney’s red gingham shirt, shorts and matching accessories – pictured above).  Meanwhile at Christopher Kane, the classic tennis outfit was given a modern yet romantic reinvention – the skirt was made of darling pearlescent fabric giving it a fresh, feminine air.  At Tommy Hilfiger, the classic houndstooth print experienced a colour overhaul and was teamed with unexpected chunky knits and bold horizontal stripes.

Statement accessories complete the preppy look. Oversized sunglasses and tote bags in bright colours and prints will certainly turn heads by the pool & add a little summer sizzle…  

Will you give the preppy look a workout for Summer? xx
