Our Spring 2014 photo shoot took us to the birthplace of American music and fashion—San Francisco. We were inspired by the resurgence of classic, preppy styles in San Francisco, like our French Terry Sweater and Plaid Button Down Shirt. We pulled our Manager of Styling, Lauren and Tyler offset to get their thoughts and styling tips for updating our favorite classic pieces.
Our staple French Terry Sweater has been upgraded from your go-to neutral sweater to cool French terry. It has the look and feel of your favorite sweater but the coziness of your favorite hoodie, and it’s perfect for layering on chilly spring mornings. The pastel colors of our Plaid Button Down Shirt are fresh and bright for spring and look great layered with a neutral sweater. Pair them with our Destroyed Denim Cutoff Short (cuff the bottoms for a preppy feel) and Reebook Classic Nylon Sneakers for the ultimate in old-school cool.
Looking for more styling tips and inspiration from our Styling Director, Preston and Styling Manager, Lauren? See how they styled some of our key trends for spring including Americana, florals, soft dressing, mixing prints and 90s grunge, and nautical.
