Brown Is the New Black: Classic Fit

Here comes the latest installment of Brown Is the New Blac, BlogDailyHerald’s look at College Hill’s cutest looks and newest trends. This week: prep’s cool (GET IT?)

Ralph Lauren coined the preppy style with his polo shirts and clean-cut blazers. Forty years later, that casually cool, all-American look is still present. Inspired by country clubs and perfectly groomed crowds, brands like J. Crew, Lacoste and Abercrombie & Fitch continue to keep the style alive and almost timeless. Hadley Schreiber ’12, who wears a fitted navy blue coat with golden buttons, skinny jeans and classic black riding boots, inherently embodies a look that alludes to Diana Vreeland’s high school days. Schreiber also wears a light pink ruffled shirt that slightly peeks out of her coat – a combination that could easily qualify as part of J. Crew’s winter collection. To top of her outfit, she wears her hair straight, perfectly poised above her shoulders. Timeless look.
