Sophisticated in Shorts. Collegiate Style in the Summertime.

Sophisticated Collegiate Style
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

One part prim and proper, one part youthful and fun, this outfit has Blair Waldorf written all over it.  And it’s proof that prep school style doesn’t have to be stuffy or boring.  We’ve given prep school clothes a fun twist with a pair of short shorts and a brightly colored handbag.  Here’s how to get the look of a collegiate who’s not afraid to let her hair down:

1.  Start with a prim and proper shirt: a button down featuring a tuxedo-like ruffle at center front. 
2.  Add a pair of short shorts, tucking the button down shirt into the shorts.  We love the self-belt, which is sweetly tied with a bow.
3.  Toss on a cardigan, tied over your shoulders until it gets cooler in the evening.  Bonus prep points for the two little pockets and the crest detailing.
4.  Finish the look off with a pair of mid-heel pumps (high heels would be a bit much for shorts this short) and a brightly colored handbag. Bright orange pairs well with the greys in the outfit.

How would you make collegiate style fun for summer?  Share your style with us in the comments!

Kimchi Blue Striped Tunic


It’s no secret that we’re fans of the horizontal stripes. We like how they add a refreshing nautical feel to any outfit - but we also appreciate this unusual yellow on grey color combo, instead of the standard blue on white.

$42  at Urban Outfitters.
