With the winter term coming to a much needed end, most of us prep’s are headed to the airport for a mental breather. Some of us say au revoir to America and head to Europe for a dose of cultural indulgence, while the majority of us head south clad in our favorite preppy outfits: Nantucket red shorts, Sperry’s, and Raybans; nothing is better. Every preppy boy and girl needs the summer staples when heading south, and because most of us have forgotten due to the cold winter weather. I’ve taken the liberty of thinking of a few for you.
Don’t even worry about the bikinis, and the shorts yet any good girl knows the first thing to pack is shoes. If you remember three shoes for your spring vacation, I promise you will be more than pleased. Sperry’s, Tory Burch sandals , and Wedges. Sperry’s are a must, and if I have to give an explanation why then you are fooling yourself by thinking your preppy; just pack them. The beautiful thing about Tory Burch sandals and wedges are that they go with anything. You can dress up both, or wear them casually either way they’re fabulous.
Now that shoes are taken care of you can worry about clothing. First thing; Lilly Dresses. Any Lilly Dress is perfect for dinner after a day at the beach with their bright colorful prints you’ll attract all the preppy boys. For the beach, a big, worn oxford is the perfect cover up that always looks adorable. J.Crew Chinos are a must as well, and the brighter they are the better. Nothing beats Chinos and a vneck for a simple laid back look.
These are only a few things that are a must have while south of the Manson-Dixon Line. Yes, sun tan lotion is really important and all, but I’d rather be burnt and well dressed, then pale and out of style. Remember, its spring break its mandatory that you cut loose, but relaxation doesn’t imply that you neglect your style.
