Complete the Look: 4 Perfect Preppy Accessories

by Jill Manoff

Color? Check! Khakis? Check! Now, for the extras… Lucky for you, we’ve compiled the need-now accessories that complement “preppy-chic” to a T. Check it out.


Cateye Sunglasses
As the season’s been conjuring up our nostalgia for preppy classics, it makes sense that we’re revisiting an old favorite: cateye sunglasses. They’re timeless, refined and yet totally wearable—and they look great with preppy staples, from polos to ponytails.

Monogrammed Jewelry
This season, it’s personal—at least in terms of the label we’re sporting. We’ve been all about wearing monogrammed pieces, from our shirts to our sweaters to our carry-everywhere bag. Our choice style is this Kardashian Kollection cuff, a preppy take on a classic ID bracelet.

A Colorful Tote
Whether you’re hitting Nantucket or just want to get the look, you can’t go wrong with a colorful tote. We love this style, as it easily transitions from a morning about town to a day at the beach. The best part? It’s a chic means of making like the natives. (No need to wear whales on your pants, after all!)

A Striped Scarf
As a rule, anything “nautical” is preppy perfection—and this blue-and-white scarf is no exception. It’s lightweight and soft, so will work wonders through summer—and wears like a neutral, so complements our entire preppy wardrobe. When we’re not wearing it with brights, we’ll be doubling-up on stripes.
