Preppy Fall Looks for Less by Allie

Hey everyone!  Today I am proud to say that I have my first guest post (eek!).  The guest poster for today is Allie from it's electicAL!  You all just have to check out her blog, it is fantastic!  Today, Allie will be telling you all about some great (and preppy) fall looks for less :)

Look 1: Puffer Vest Prep
Puffer vests, oxford button-downs, and riding boots are all Fall wardrobe staples for the quintessential prep. However, they can put a big dent in your wallet if you’re looking for well-known brands. Luckily, many other brands are making similar styles for cheaper. Now we can all channel our inner prep without breaking our piggy banks!

What I’m Wearing: A cream vest from Land’s End, Lauren Conrad green pants from Kohl’s, blue button down from Land’s End, Madden Girl boots from Delia’s, pearls from Forever 21, and a monogram bracelet from Marley Lilly.

Look 2:  Lazy Day Prepster
Leggings and a big shirt is one of my favorite lazy day combinations. But how do you make it look classy while still staying comfy? First off, Old Navy has amazing leggings – from high-waisted to low, they are soft, stretchy, and there is a fit for every body type. Not to mention the price is extremely reasonable. This summer I also found this beautiful long sleeve white crepe shirt from Old Navy. It helps create the perfectly simple black and white prep look, with black flats as a classic finish. 

What I’m Wearing: a white crepe shirt from Old Navy, black leggings from Old Navy, Lauren Conrad black flats from Kohl’s, pearls from Forever 21, and a monogram bracelet from Marley Lilly.

Look 3: Preppy in Plaid
Plaid skirts aren’t just for private schools – they are an essential of the prepster’s wardrobe. This one from Old Navy was only four dollars when I bought it! And it has gotten so much use over the years. Versatile to style, plaid skirts are adorable with tights and boots when it gets a little colder as well. I’m channeling the Gossip Girl Upper East Side style in this look (but definitely not the price!)

What I’m Wearing: A white crepe tank from Old Navy, a plaid skirt from Old Navy, a black cardigan from Nordstrom Rack, Lauren Conrad black flats from Kohl’s, pearls from Forever 21, and a monogram bracelet from Marley Lilly.

Look 4: Nautical Prep
Sailor shirts are wonderful - especially L.L. Bean’s sailor shirt. After buying this tee for a great price, I have worn this shirt so many times, and it still looks brand new. Perfect for the nautical prep, both in style and price. Leather jackets can also help complete a Fall look, but can get pricey as well. I got this adorable motorcycle jacket from Charming Charlie of all places, and for only about $50! It completes a perfectly preppy look for any Fall day.

What I’m Wearing: A striped sailor tee from L.L. Bean, Lauren Conrad dark wash skinny jeans from Kohl’s, oxford leather shoes from Aldo, and a leather jacket from Charming Charlie.
