Making Preppy Look Cool

Photography: Lindsey Thoeng

I still can't believe that I paid absolutely nothing for this cute sweater! I got it at ifchic, a website that allows you to collect coins every day and use them to buy clothes. If you are not familiar with this store yet, check this post where I explain more about it.

The white collar and bottom part of my top makes it look like I am wearing a white shirt underneath, but it's actually built in the sweater. Even though preppy is not really my personal style, I still love this sweater+shirt look!

To make my outfit cooler and less preppy, I added these cool Ray Bans.

And to add a modern touch, I was wearing my girlfriend's oxford shoes to complete the look, proving that preppy doesn't mean bland and boring. 

I was wearing:

Sweater: Ifchic

Sunglasses: Ditto

Pants: Banana Republic

Shoes: Rockport
