As I had already mentioned in one of my earlier posts, Trend I'm Loving: Preppy, Overprivileged Schoolgirl, I am in love with the Ivy League look this year. As I have been working on my fall shopping, I have also been trying to put together pieces to accomplish the look. Fortunately, some of my favorite stores are also loving the trend! Here are some looks that I love:
This Ann Taylor outfit is the perfect balance between professional and sexy. The lace gives the look some allure while the collar peeking out from the top gives it that preppy schoolgirl look.
I love practically everything from J. Crew, and this burgundy blazer is no exception. I also love how something heavy like that is paired with shorts. The jeweled collar necklace is another piece to the trend's equation that I love.
Banana Republic has absolutely the best sweaters and cardigans. I seriously have so many of them now! This cheetah print cardi is fun and kind of wild, while again the collar brings it back toward professional. It's really a great dichotomy.
I have never been a devoted shopper at Gap, but they have some cute pieces this season! I love all the chambray tops, especially the outfit that puts them under a striped sweater.
What do you think about these Ivy League looks, Lovelies? Would you try them?
