Prep School Style at Thakoon, Calvin Klein, and Peter Som.


Style tip?  School is back in session, and designers are following suit with new takes on school day classics.  The prep look took the runways in both classic forms (as per Calvin Klein’s simple white day dress, reminiscent of dress whites) and fun takes on prep school staples.  Thakoon dolled up a designer take on a schoolgirl uniform with a metallic jacket and punky shades.  And Peter Som modified a tweedy bomber with a more streamlined silhouette, pushing up the sleeves for effect.  How to wear prep school style?  Sparingly - if you’re not in school anymore, best practice is to limit yourself to a single piece per outfit.

What do you think?  How would you wear prep school style?  Share your thoughts in the comments!
