Preppy with a Twist!

I like dressing a little preppy, especially as we approach the fall and winter months. Even if I am dressed on the preppy side, I do like to add my own stamp on an outfit or find items that nod to preppy styles but with a twist. While I don't think I would have automatically viewed these red and pink plaid pants as preppy, they are called "preppy wide leg pants" on the Anthropologie website. Now that I look at them, they do sort of look like they could be some very funky preppy golf pants from the 70s! Obviously, I added my own twist to these "preppy" plaid pants by pairing them with a pair of pom pom mules and red heart sunglasses.

I wore these pants for a sponsored Instagram post that I shot this weekend.  After wearing the pants around for a while, I decided that I liked them so much that, when I came home, I ordered them in the purple and orange combo that they also come in! The fact that they are currently on sale made them even more appealing! Also, Halloween is right around the corner so the purple and orange color palette will be perfect for the occasion! I think the version I'm wearing here in pink and red will be perfect for Valentine's Day this year! I guess I have a lot of my holiday outfits covered with these two pair of pants!

  1. What a fun pair of pants! I have added 3 or 4 fun pairs to my closet this year which is a nice change from my usual skinny jeans.

  3. That preppy style is great. I really love the pattern and bold hues on your trousers, they look so gorgeous and the accessories work perfectly together.
