Take inspiration from Serena or Blair with this preppy chic look. Preppy wear screams back to school, but we love the idea of giving it a cool and modern twist for a look that’s less traditional.
Build the look off of a basic button down shirt. Go for basic white or try a patterned textile for something a little different. We love the nautical inspired stripes of this Club Monaco blouse, perfect for a sartorial look. Nothing makes a button down more preppy chic then pairing it with a blazer. For a look that isn’t so polished and lady-like, try a blazer in a bright pop of colour like this red one from Mango.

You can finish the look off with your favourite skinny jeans, or try pairing it with black shorts (just $64 from Topshop) for something a little untraditional. Opt for booties and dainty accessories ($73, Shopbop) for a complete outfit.
