Trend Focus: Preppy

This summer it’s time to go back to school for some serious style cred…


 This spring/summer the catwalks were awash with cute blazers, full skirts, floral blouses, shirts and beaten leather satchels. Luella featured the preppy look strongly and even had fun by adding glasses and pig tails to their models. Take inspiration from the oh-so English Henley regatta and the girls of St.Trinian’s, and show you really are too cool for school…

Get the Look for Less…

  1. how do i still buy the Jack WIlls bag as it is no longer in the store or on the website?

  2. Hi! I would suggest looking in a Jack Wills outlet shop. Sometimes they stock previous seasons’ collections. I would recommend Bicester shopping village near Oxford (for enquiries: or Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth (for enquiries: Its also worth a look any way in my opinion! They’re both great days out (for those with a passion for fashion). Failing this you could try looking on ebay! Hope this helps!
