• Hacking 101

    Top Drawer | Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY (Columbia University)

    Noteworthy: I appreciate everything about this young lady's look down to her round eye glasses but these few things specifically—vintage Prince Albert slippers, tweed hacking jacket, pleated trouser.

    And I fundamentally disagree with the comment that true prep is completely unisex.  That’s too uniform and constrictive, thank you.

    Appreciate everything except the velvet slippers.  It’s the one piece that topples the look into costume territory.

    I could find myself easily falling for a woman dressed like this…

    Love the recent photos on campus. I don’t remember it being that stylish when I was there. :)

    I love this lady’s style! I wonder if she has considered a sharper bob hairstyle - would accentuate the look further.

    The true prep aesthetic is, and will continue to be, fundamentally UNISEX.  This picture is the perfect example.  That is what distinguished the prep look from every other look, IMHO.  Girls and Boys can both rock it in exactly the same way.

    Love it! Very similar to how I dress. I go to school at a private, Baptist college in south Georgia (perfect place to be unabashedly prep, right?) and have been appalled by how other students dress there.
    I personally rock wingtips, dark jeans for casual or Brooke Bros skirts with OCBDs, pearls and herringbone, cord or navy blazers. For eyewear, I’m loyal to either small RB aviators, tort/ yellow Wayfarers or tort/ green Personal wayfarers.
    It’s already getting hot in Georgia; I can’t wait to break out my red or cobalt go-to-hell pants during our (mandatory) weekly Chapel!
    Thanks for bringing the prep movement back into the forefront, FEC! Whenever wearing wingtips without socks I refer to the look at “unabashedly Castleberry”!

    She looks wonderful. This is the sort of look I prefer myself, but I can never manage to carry off the velvet slippers, too.

    Very well put together.  The jacket fits beautifully, fab pants color!  She has a sophistIcated look about her that not everyone can pull off.  Bravo.

    My goodness, she’s exceedingly cute…!

    I didn’t know Harlem could look so good. ;-)

    I would have to agree with you on all points. Very attractive as well.

    random, but where did you go to college/ high school?

    I agree…it’s the total package. If there is an archetype for a preppy lady, this has to be her.
