Fall is a style smorgasbord—the perfect transitional weather to mix together your favorites from the warm and cold months. Think; sundresses with sweaters, cozy camel coats, and the coolest, most comfortable boots with positively every outfit. And while you might be stashing away your seersucker for the season, there's no reason than all of your favorite fall staples can't bring the same level of preppy chic as your Breton stripes and boat shoes. All you need is the right signature looks to take your preppy style into a whole new season.
A Barbour jacket
This 125 year old English brand is known not only for their comfortable, effortlessly cool, weather-busting waxed cotton jackets, but their serious royal pedigree—the royal family are such fans that the Queen, Prince Philip, and Prince Charles have each award the brand a royal warrant.
Whether you're going for some bonafide Outlander sex appeal or aiming for a look that's classic, polished, and preppy, tartan should be your fall go-to. Bonus, this famous check is a great way to integrate some daring pops of color into your more subdued wardrobe while maintaining a comfortable level of sophistication.
It's really a simple equation: In the summer everyone dresses like they own a boat and in the fall everyone dresses like they own a horse. The key to pulling it off? Pair sleek, tailored pieces like slim trousers and a breezy white button-down with wear-everywhere leather knee-high boots.
Cashmere in every hue imaginable
Whether you're layering them over a white Oxford, pairing them with seasonal skirts, or using them to add a pop of color to your standard jeans and riding boots look, a cozy cashmere sweater is a fall outfit-maker that you'll appreciate season after season.
Hudson Bay or Pendleton stripes
This iconic preppy pattern deserves a spot in your heart right alongside Burberry check and gingham. More importantly, they deserve a spot in your wardrobe, adding a touch of pop art fun to your favorite accessories.
Fair Isle Sweaters
Not only are they classics, but these warm, patterned sweaters add an air of playfulness to any look—perfect for balancing out more formal blazers and coats. As an added bonus, the cute patterns look adorable but not too matchy-matchy in photos for those family holiday cards.
It doesn't matter whether you're trekking through to woods on a leaf peeping adventure or if the only distance you walk is between your front door and your waiting car; you'll be (and look) prepared for anything in these classic preppy boots.
Camel blazers and jackets
From classic trenches to preppy blazers, these versatile neutral pieces will more than stand the test of time. Whether you choose to style yours with jeans and flats, or over a classic black sheath, there's really no wrong way to wear a great piece of camel outerwear.
