Ready Made Outfit: Preppy Rockstar | Men’s Edition

As promised, I present to you the Style Intelligence Report’s first foray into the Wide World of Men’s Fashion.

I bring to you the look of the season for men that’s nearest and dearest to my heart: the Preppy Rockstar.

The foundation of the look consists of a good quality jean and a casual-to semiformal top…or two. Pictured are American Eagle’s Eagle Stripe Pique Polo ($29.50), and Armani Exchange’s Boot Cut Jean ($105).

Another, perhaps more sophisticated, shirt possibility is a woven, button-up shirt that has some extra style detailing. One of my current favorites: Kenneth Cole’s "Pieced and Love," ($110) shown below. The ribbon detailing provides an interesting counterpoint to the otherwise standard button-up shirt.

To this basic foundation, add your jacket of choice. Two suggestions:

1. A Blazer: To mix things up a bit, try one in an unusual fabric. The blazer pictured below ($89 at Urban Outfitters), for example, is made of Velvet.

2. A Biker or Motocross Jacket: Very attractive on a wide variety of body types. The Cotton Biker Jacket pictured below goes for $145 at Armani Exchange.

All you have to do is add sunglasses and some attitude, and you’ll be ready to go!
