Style File: Cracking The New England

New England Style

Before the Preppy Handbook was a blip of an idea, in New England, prepsters were decades ahead of the ‘trend’, donning classic Americana digs indigenous to their northeastern lifestyle.

Boarding schools, family compounds, old school and old money, the conservative, polished, preppy style came to be from the way of life New Englanders live and is at the core of who there are: boating, yatching, fishing, cookouts, golfing, picnicking. Still can’t picture it? Picture this: The Kennedys. Aha, by George! you’ve got it!

Seersucker skirts. Striped sweaters. Anchors on everything. Pastels pieces. Popped collars. Sunnies. Boat shoes & espadrilles. Madras. And of course, the monogram. The N.E. part of the country looks as if they’ve stepped off the pages of Town & Country. And, truth be told, many have. For those who summer on the Cape or get hitched on Martha’s, the look is classic, clean and inspired by the legendary coastline. For those who aspire to look like they summer on the Cape or get hitched on Martha’s, see below.
