Here are my preppy fall essentials!!
|Rugby Classic Crewneck Cable-Knit|
I live in sweaters in the fall, and my favorites are all definitely cable-knit!!! I have the sweater above in yellow and I love it.
I think I have at least 4 pair of equestrian inspired boots and I'm obsessed. I love the boots above!! Riding boots go perfectly with everything in fall.
Classically Preppy Footwear
|LL Bean Boot|
Bean boots. What can I say about bean boots...they are one of the most classically preppy items ever. I am ashamed to admit that I do not own the classic L.L. Bean masterpieces (yet), but fret not! I'm going to get them this fall. After last year's ridiculous amount of snow in Connecticut and my lack of snow boots (my sherling line bean boots are in Jackson Hole year round), I have to be prepared!
Oxford Button Down
|Ralph Lauren Megan Solid Oxford Shirt|
The oxford shirt is a classic preppy staple year-round, but I find that I wear them more in the colder months. They are perfectly paired with crewneck and v-neck sweaters, as well as cardigans and khakis.
The Striped Rugby
|Brooks Brothers Striped Rugby|
Striped rugby's are great casual shirts for fall. They're thick, comfortable, and great for menswear inspired outfits. I've only gotten rugby's from Rugby Ralph Lauren, so I don't know how the Brooks Brothers' design that's shown above fits. The colors are great for fall!
|Rugby Nestor Wool Crepe U-Back Dress|
I love this LBD from Rugby!! It's very classic looking and flattering!
The Hacking Jacket
|Rugby Suede-Patch Hacking Jacket|
I have the jacket above in purple, and I love it. I try to pair it with jeans so that I don't completely look like a mom!! It's a great item for fall!
The Perfect Vest
|Rugby Alastair Down Vest|
I'm (obviously) really loving Rugby this fall!! Usually my brother is the one wearing the "youthful prep" inspired designs from Rugby and I'm perfectly content in Lilly, but they have great classic items for fall. This vest is great and I love the hunting patch on the shoulder!!
The Norwegian Sweater
|L.L. Bean Norwegian Sweater|
My favorite sweater in the entire world is the Norwegian Sweater from L.L. Bean. I got one last year for fall and I couldn't get enough of it. I wore it all the time. I got a men's small (which was still big on me) and I cannot wait until this fall so I can wear it more!!
The Coat (or Cape!)
|Rugby Brayton Duffle Cape|
I am not a fan of capes. Not really, anyway. I never expected to like this Rugby cape, but I really, really do!! It doesn't look like a traditional "cape". It doesn't look like Dracula should wear it, and it looks more like a classic camel coat with weird sleeves!!
|J. Crew Classic Café Capri|
|J. Crew Ankle Stretch Toothpick Jean|
I am also on the hunt for the perfect jean. I legitimately have the hardest time ever finding jeans. I am determined to find good ones this year!! The goal is to find jeans that keep their shape and that are skinny in the knee and calf so that I can tuck them into boots.
What are y'alls preppy fall essentials? Let me know!!
Have a fabulous day!!
