Being from New York and having a love for the Preppy style I’ve always found myself wondering how I can dress preppy and still look like Home. I knew for a fact that I didn’t want to just look like your average student at an Ivy League school but a mixture of that and the great streetwear that New Yorkers possess. The Yankee cap to me is one of the greatest symbols of New York and so Incorporate it when id like to add a touch of the big apple to one of my looks. In the end I’ve realized that when I put together an outfit I seek two things. One the confidence I have always gotten when I know I look polished, and Two the pride that I look like I’m from NY.

Monday’s seem unbearable sometimes because chances are you’re probably recovering from a huge hangover or you were binge watching your favorite show on Netflix all day. When you wake up it feels like you just want to go in to work wearing your blanket. Unfortunately this isnt acceptable in the work place, so what’s the next best thing? A cotton suit with enough comfort and stretch to make it through the day. The best part is that it’s the perfect pop of color to look great during happy hour.
Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal”. When we think of style as eternal we usually lean towards the end part, the part that keeps going and never stops. What about the beginning?
