From our friends at thefind.com:
Remember when we were younger, and the movie Clueless came out, preppy chic took over our closets in a nanosecond. We flocked to the stores to grab knee-highs and pleated skirts, and to this day we still can’t get enough of a classic cardigan. It looks like the preppy trend is coming back strong. But instead of the rich-girl, high society influence that the character’s Cher and Dionne were back in the 90’s, this time around, “preppy chic” is modernly mixed in with a little”geek chic” and “rebel style.” The trendsetters of today are adding chunky glasses, mis-matched patterns and plaids, thick doc marten-like boots, and huge industrial satchels to the mix to redefine the trend to perfectly fit the 21st Century. Just think leathers, thick textures, geeky eyewear, and classic, cool footwear. Head over to your favorite vintage store, too, to find one of a kind pieces to add an exclusive addition no matter where your mood takes you. Complete your look instantly with these cool finds: MIA Women’s Nolan Platform Loafer, Vanessa Bruno Athea Leather Trimmed Skirt in Black, and Vintage Large Wayfarer Glasses in Black/Clear.
