Trend Alert: Preppy Chic

Submitted by on January 15, 2010 – 12:44 pm5 Comments

The classic boyish preppy look will be in full effect for spring 2010 – but the key for ladies is to ad a sultry edge this time around.

Take Burberry, who reinvented their classic trench coat multiple times for spring/summer 2010:

Having recently caught the film Sherlock Holmes, Rachel McAdams sexy menswear style comes to mind:

Normally colors associated with this look are rich dark navy, burgundy, tan etc. – but as you can see from Burberry’s icy lavender trench coat with bold black buttons, it’s ok to have some fun with it this spring.
