This week’s challenge for Bloggers Do It Better is American Prep School. The assignment is to create a preppy look wearing a vest, cardigan or blazer and you must include a tie. I was super excited about this challenge and immediately searched the internet for style inspirations. My first stop was to check out Tommy Hilfiger’s website where I was immersed with preppy trends from blue blazers, crisp chinos, letterman cardigans, and boat shoes.
My creative ideas were in full effect! I knew that I wanted to have that Carlton Banks look from Fresh Prince of Bellaire. Remember his outfits? He oozed American Prep school, down to the sweater tied around his neck. What I like most about these challenges is the ability to be creative and try things that are outside of your comfort level.
