Styling Practice: Preppy Casual Metallic

Preppy Casual Metallic


The Look:

Preppy, casual, and timeless all in one.  Being on a quest to liven up winter classics with the use of metallics, I had to highlight this look!

Why I Love It:

The navy trousers and crisp collared white button-up are complimented by a cropped pale gold metallic cardigan.  The addition of the cardigan brings a lighthearted and feminine element to such a classic (often stoic) look.  This a very versatile outfit that would look just as good on a college student as it would in a business casual environment or to an after-work happy hour.

*Fashion Stylist Tip:

  • Pair this look with a pair of black glitter or metallic stilletos and clutch for happy hour
  • Up the “sexy” factor by wearing the top few buttons of the shirt undone pair with a longline push-up bra
  • Keep this look professional by keeping makeup natural and minimal gold accessories
  • Layer a longer blazer on top of the cardigan to keep the look more boardroom worthy

First Three Words that Came to Mind:

  • 1920’s
  • The Great Gatsby
  • Pearls


My Interpretation:

I selected some items from my style closet in order to complete this look.  Since my mannequin doesn’t have hair, I went with a 1920’s gangster inspired hat.  Worn at this angle, it adds edge to the look and compliments the feminine bra with pearls.  The winter white corduroy pants add elegance and timelessness (which are a big part of my own personal style🙂
