The preppy – classy – waspy layered jacket

The preppy layered jacket by ISABEL MARANT
Whenever I hear this word, Preppy, my mind travels to collared striped blouses, styled with tennis skirts. It also travels to JCrew (not the FW15 collection. This one was amazing!) and Gant catalogue pictures. Seriously, I think I hate it in a very particular way. Deep in my mind, preppy outfits feel so clean and tidy but there is something wrong about them. They are kind of “fake” to me. I always need my kind of “mess” to spice looks up.
For instance, this ISABEL MARANT Etoile jacket (available at ZILLY stores) was easily spiced up. Layered with an H&M shirt and vintage fur collar, the look instantly gets more interesting. Top it off with a printed scarf and you are ready to go. Gone. Gone girl. Winking my eye.
