Trend Importance Factor: High.
Wearability Factor: High.
How to Wear It: Embrace your inner East Coast preppy side with cardigans (both shrunken and oversized), layered pullovers, tees, and sport shirts, sweatercoats, and vests. Preppy Minimalism is easy to wear and friendly to all body types.
For a bit of flair, mix up your accessories. Pair a dressy outfit with casual flip flops, or match your polo-and-shorts look with a statement necklace.
Where in Trend Lifecycle: This trend should truly be classified as a classic–think of Ralph Lauren’s timeless style.
