Preppy goes Purple

After seeing the so called eggplant colored chinos from (Ego Jeans), I immediately fell in love with it. It was purple perfect since I’m into vintage inspired preppy styles lately with a dash of color, and I haven’t got one like it yet. So I immediately mixed and matched it with my other closet finds to get that whimsy dapper look for an afternoon tea with my friend in the newly opened and luxurious TWG Tea Salon and Boutique in Shangri-La mall’s new wing.

Green Argyle printed socks from (Uniqlo). Boat shoes or deck shoes from (Milanos). These items gives a vintage preppy look. Here’s why:

Trivia: Boat shoes ( also known as deck shoes/topsiders) are typically canvas or leather with non-marking rubber soles designed for use on a boat. A siping pattern is cut into the soles to provide grip on a wet deck; the leather construction, along with application of oil, is designed to repel water; and the stitching is highly durable. Boat shoes are traditionally worn without socks. Modern boat shoes were invented in 1935.These became popular during the 1980s

The Argyle pattern is derived from the tartan of Clan Campbell, of Argyll in western Scotland,[1] used for kilts and plaids, and from the patterned socks worn by Scottish Highlanders since at least the 17th century. In the 1920s Argyle patterned socks were fashionable.
