Frankie & Henry Preppy Style

This week Frankie and Henry sport the enduring preppy look, because you don’t have to be enrolled in an American Ivy League School to adorn this universal style. Corporate uniforms are often inspired by prep clothing as these pieces (think collared shirts, detailed accessories and premium knits) can be fashioned as modern corporate wear, or just as easily be the uniform style of choice for retail and front of house staff. Frankie wears our Dixon Stripe Shirt in Blue & White accessorised with the Lavalliere Silk Bow Tie and black Todd Chino Skirt. Whilst Henry wears the Smith Oxford Shirt in Sky Blue with our dapper Pin Spot Bow Tie and paired with the Todd Chino Shorts in Camel. Both outfits are styled with our Crew Knit in Navy over the shoulders for that final collegiate touch. Remember, preppy style isn’t just for the Upper East Siders. XOXO Cargo Crew
