Nantucket Reds are classic prep - and absolutely perfect for summer. Why are they so great? The beauty of Nantucket Reds is their unique faded salmon red color that gets better with age. The original Nantucket Reds are made by Murray’s Toggery Shop, but the resurgence of preppy fashion means that you can get them in a variety of styles from other retailers. Here’s how to wear Nantucket Reds:
1. Start with a pair of Nantucket Reds. You can try a short or a pant, cargo pockets optional.
2. Add another preppy classic: a casual gingham shirt. We love how the navy and white plays off of the salmon red shorts.
3. Finish off the look with a pair of bright white sneakers (worn sans socks) and a canvas belt.
