The original prepster

by Amanda Bedgood

Simple sweaters inspired by his side of the closet

Something about a preppy sweater recalls fall and football games and borrowed lettermen jackets. Those days are long past for this IND Styler, but these sweaters borrowed from his side of the closet are cool enough for the grown ups.

The first one that caught my eye was the varsity sweater from Wildfox at Hemline. With an ever clever nod, Wildfox has brought a men's inspired sweater in vibrant yellow we'd love to snuggle up in on cool fall nights.

When it comes to the menswear trend, the black and white sweater from Vanessa V. is that sort of piece that can work with slouchy boyfriend jeans as well as preppy men's trousers. And over at Brother's, we're loving the baseball sweater with black sleeves that would rock with the season's waxed denim as well as skinny moto-inspired pants.
