The classic American look of the upper-middle-class prep schools boys from the East Coast. Standard items include blue blazers, cotton Izod polo shirts, button down shirts, striped ties, argyle sweaters, chinos, boat shoes and tasselled loafers.
This week’s favourite look is highly influenced by the 90’s. My admiration for the 90’s goes above and beyond my love for Ryan Gosling. Being a tween in the 90’s is great. There is nothing better than rocking out to Weezer, idolizing Hope Sandoval, and listening to heartbreak songs by Suede in your room filled with posters of Shawn Hunter and probably Leonardo DiCaprio.
Swooning over Shawn Hunter’s perfectly gelled hair and warm smile.
Fashion in the 90’s involved a bit of grunge, hip-hop, and modern preppy wear. In other words, fashion in season 1, 2 and possibly 3 of Boy Meets World. Which by the way, you should watch if you haven’t already seen it. Feeny’s life lessons WILL carry you through life. Promise.
