Daytime Dressing: Prep School
The preppy look was one of my most unexpected trends this autumn. At the same time however, it is a very simple trend that anyone can carry off.
Style references: Clueless, Empire Records, Miu Miu, Ivy League colleges
Styling tips: be a back-to-school rebel with ankle socks in bright pops of colour worn with wedge heeled ankle boots; add classic touches like leather gloves or a prim handbag; accessorise with fierce cuffs or bangles piled high, Gap Year style; wear shirts under pullovers and roll up the sleeves and undo the buttons on your cuffs and collars.
Best of the high street: Cos, Zara, Tabio, H and M
