Monday Fashion Feature: Trend Alert: Preppy Chic

The classic boyish preppy look will be in full effect for spring 2010 - but the key for ladies is to ad a sultry edge this time around.  Keeping current with the hard rock chic look, typical pieces like blazers, trench coats, pencil skirts and such are kicked up a notch with unusual cuts, uses of fabrics, and details. Take Burberry, who reinvented their classic trench coat multiple times for spring/summer 2010: Having recently caught the film Sherlock Holmes, Rachel McAdams sexy menswear style comes to mind:  Normally colors associated with this look are rich dark navy, burgundy, tan etc. - but as you can see from Burberry's icy lavender trench coat with bold black buttons, it's ok to have some fun with it this spring.
