It’s officially time to pack away your Sperry’s and time to weather proof the riding boots, girls! With the beautiful snow fall comes the harsh cold that can put a damper on any preppy outfit. There are a few key pieces though that are both functional and preppy for the sudden winter weather.
Riding boots are the go to shoe for this fall season, but water stains on new leather is an unwelcome style. Instead, throw on some Bean boots. They’re comfortable and practical and look great paired with dark wash jeans a sweater, and a quilted vest. If it’s chilly in the morning, grab a Barbour jacket–it keeps you warm and has a classic look to it.
Accessories can also help to fight the cold and can add a pop of color. Adding a scarf to a plain sweater is a great way to add color, and knee socks and riding boots (that are water resistant, of course) are always a great idea. There is no need to give up on your preppy style, even if the weather is against you!
