Boyfriend Fashion: Preppy Style

So…Markel doesn’t know it yet…but this summer I plan to revamp his wardrobe with some more preppy pieces.  I’ve decided that preppy looks the best on him and really gives off a clean, put-together look.  He can mix and match without a problem, plus he’ll always look appropriate to every function without much effort.  Button downs, polos, khakis, boat shoes, hats… it’s SO adorable!

Here my inspiration board first, then I’ll show you the new things I’m looking to add to Markel’s wardrobe =D

Boyfriend Style, Looks and Fashion

My bf and I were talking last night about fashion and updating his wardrobe.  He’s still wearing t-shirts and jeans from high school/college!  As a man in his mid-twenties…it’s time for a major upgrade.  The conversation led to some ideas of what kind of new pieces should be added and what style would look best on him.

I mainly only like JCrew, Ben Sherman, and Banana Republic.  Is it safe to say, My style is his style?  lol

Forever21 Haul: Spring/Summer 2012 Clothing

There are so many new trends out there right now and before spending $$$$ on them, I always like to try ’em out at Forever 21 before splurging on more staple pieces.  Out of the things that I got, here are my FAAAAVE items that I can’t wait to wear for spring/summer!  I love the patterns, the unique styles…and the fact that they can be worn with tons of different outfits, colors, and settings.  ❤
