Preppy Pleats

From Jason Wu to Jill Sander, designers were certainly making a case for schoolgirl-chic this Autum/Winter.

Windowpane plaids a (la Victoria Beckham and Calvin Klein) shared the runway with preppy pleats, Ralph Lauren-style, and varsity ‘sweaters’, thanks to Gucci and Marc Jacobs.

And, as ever, the trends have trickled off the runway and into the shops ready to be purchased, and this season I’m loving Banana Republic’s French-inspired Autumn line up. Encompassing all the right things about the preppy fashion trend, contemporary skirt silhouettes and my fave office-appropriate Mini Larkin Tote seamlessly mix past and present for a fashionable feat you can’t refuse.
