What better way to step into summer than with the style ethos new designer Preppy Long Stockings has ‘A Preppy, Retro, Romantic vibe.’ Not only will you be on trend with these designs but as they only stock limited amounts of each item you’ll be making a sweet, unique fashion statement. With a cute play on words with their brand name, each garment can be dressed to suit you, allowing you to give ‘classic styles a modern twist.’
It’s not often that you get reasonably priced AND unique in a brand but new to IndependentBoutique.com, aiming to give you just that, is this latest collection….
‘Think Collars, Buttons, Bows and Unique Prints’
This Vintage Colour Pop Cardigan in lemon is perfect for those breezy days, which, as us Brits know we are guaranteed to get, so a must have in your wardrobe. The oversized look is in, like borrowing your boyfriend’s jumper but better as it smells and looks nicer plus you don’t have to give it back. Wear in the day with a summer dress and sandals or to keep you warm if you are going for drinks and want to add colour to a classic playsuit or skinny jeans and wedges.
How about this Preppy Playsuit in Bronze. Literally the perfect all in one outfit, well for me anyway. Pulled in at the waist to give the illusion of an hour glass figure most of us long for, this little number is available in more than one colour. This happens to be my favourite as the black stands even more boldly on the bronze and the bow and collar just shouts preppy. Team with a pair of Mary Jane’s and a blazer for a smart casual look. Think Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl.
Loving this Pastel Shade Satin Dress. Peter pan collars are for the child in all of us and this satin dress adds cutesy with the pastel shade and floral print. Ankle socks are now on trend so take it back to your school girl days with a pair and an oversized cardigan, tan flats and thin tan belt to finish off the look.
Last but not least is this Sailor Collar Dress in Vintage Grey. We’ve all been there and done the sailor look but never like this. The large collar and lace trim with a bow are perfect for a summer stroll or if it happens to rain, as it probably will, you can always show this little beauty off on dress down Fridays and be the envy of the office. A waist length v neck cardi is all that is needed to accentuate the best features of this dress, and for your soles, time to let loose those pedicured feet that have been tucked away in boots all winter.
So the number one reason why I love love love (yes three times) Preppy Long Stockings is for the modern twists they put on all the classic looks of yesteryear, that as a child I hated but now I embrace, all of them will be seeing me through summer!
