As previously discussed on Clearing Preppy’s Name, a new year tends to inspire a new you! Now that 2014 has made an appearance, people are passing on donuts and french fries, as well as posting thought provoking quotes all over twitter and instagram… Instead of losing your own identity in honor of a low cal diet, how about you try a new trend or outfit? I’ve put a few collages together of looks that I want to try this year. Please tell me some of yours too!
Feeling a bit rebellious? You don’t need to leave all your pink, florals, and tulle at home. By picking a bold color pallet as well as infiltrating some spikes into the outfit, this look is a happy marriage of “a force to be reckoned with” and the innocent prep we all know and love.
This look may seem classic, but by adding some mint you are totally 2014. After all, the winter solstice passed and we are more than half way out of the dark! This fun color made a few appearances in 2013, but wear it differently this year! Mint nail polish, flats, and sparkly necklaces help remind you that better weather is coming!
I don’t care if this look still screams Christmas (how 8 days ago), how can anyone feel depressed when they resemble trendy wrapping paper from the most wonderful time of the year? For a less formal holiday-esque look, ditch the green blazer and Christian Louboutins in exchange for an oversized sweater and riding boots. Also, note the fabulous pattern combo of polka dotted tights and a tartan skirt!
