Holiday Gift Guides: The Prepster
Posted on December 21 2012
I'm not sure where my fondness for preppy attire comes from— it could be the Catholic schoolgirl in me, or it might have something to do with my childhood Twin Peaks obsession (see prior posts on Audrey Horne) or maybe films like Clueless, Pretty in Pink and Class have rubbed off on me. Regardless of the source, I'm a huge fan of knee-high socks, crisp collars with fairisle sweaters, and all things plaid. This holiday season, treat the prepster in your life to the adorable madras Claire Bralette and Mia Panty by Araks, layered under the sexy SSV Monument Sleep Shirt. Fans of bow ties and monocles will surely appreciate the Noeud Papillon group by Huit, including the Short, Thong, and Underwire Bra. For modest layers, look to Petit Bateau's gingham group: the Cotton Gingham Bodysuit, Cami, Henley and Brief all hit the sweet spot. And for a literal take on the stocking stuffer, include a pair of Wolford's Colour Dots Knee Highs to complete the look.
