Collegiate Style Decoded

Fall means many things, heading back to school and rooting on your favorite football team among them. Both of these things lend themselves to embracing the current sportswear trend and adding a dash of collegiate preppiness to your look. Enter one of our favorite bloggers, Chriselle Lim, who shows us how she styles Gap’s “G” sweater for a fall day in sunny LA. The best part? Mastering this style does not require passing any final exams.

Downtown Prep

Pick a hue that suits you and use it as a foundation for your outfit. Chriselle chose to highlight the blue color palette of the sweater by mixing it with textured cobalt separates.

Classic Prep

The ribbing of this crew-neck sweater gives it a flattering, slim fit, while the faded blue logo evokes a vintage vibe.

Tied Up

Choosing a printed jacquard skirt keeps a simple color combination from feeling tame. An eye-catching jacket looks just as great tied around the waist as it does draped over the shoulders.
