What Inspired Barrett’s Look:
“I’m a sucker for a shorter short, neon and anything that makes me look tan, so when these AEO 8″ Prep Shorts came across my path I knew it was a match made in my fashion dreams. I always think a cuff on any article of clothing polishes up a look, but keeps the overall vibe comfy casual. Neon can also be hard to wear, so when you have something as bright as these bad boys, it’s a great idea to tone it down with a neutral counterpart like this woven grey sweater. A pop of white from a crisp tee poking out, some cool personal accessories and a killer smile complete the look. Style is meant to be fun, and how can you not have fun in hot pink?!”

Styled by Lauren: The New Classics

Styled by Lauren: The New Classics

Our Spring 2014 photo shoot took us to the birthplace of American music and fashion—San Francisco. We were inspired by the resurgence of classic, preppy styles in San Francisco, like our French Terry Sweater and Plaid Button Down Shirt. We pulled our Manager of Styling, Lauren and Tyler offset to get their thoughts and styling tips for updating our favorite classic pieces.

Our staple French Terry Sweater has been upgraded from your go-to neutral sweater to cool French terry. It has the look and feel of your favorite sweater but the coziness of your favorite hoodie, and it’s perfect for layering on chilly spring mornings. The pastel colors of our Plaid Button Down Shirt are fresh and bright for spring and look great layered with a neutral sweater. Pair them with our Destroyed Denim Cutoff Short (cuff the bottoms for a preppy feel) and Reebook Classic Nylon Sneakers for the ultimate in old-school cool.
