Super Prep Ralph Lauren Look: Love It or Hate It?

A fellow Sugar girl and I shared a chuckle over this Super Prep Ralph Lauren Look. I hope none of you put together such a complete look like this for the last Fab Finding challenge! While I can appreciate all sorts of styles, this is just prep overboard. And I'm totally into headbands but this white one is too much. What do you all think: love or hate?

I love the sweater too. I also don't like the shorts or headband too much.

I like it a million times more than the Marc by Marc Jacobs denim dress.

This reminds me of all the rich women in the supermarket when I was growing up on Long Island.

The problem is that it isn't a headband so much as it's a SWEATBAND. People wear them for sports, which I suppose is what RL was going for here. It's not meant to be a hair accessory.

It totally looks like a tennis outfit....or maybe someone who's going to watch tennis, but not play it. I think it's cute, but without the headband.

The white headband is overkill.. but I think the rest is so cute. I'm a sucker for cable-knit sweaters, especially v-neck. I'd probably wear an outfit like this without the headband.

I love everything, seperatley. the headband has to go. I loveeee the shorts, but with a different shirt maybe. and I love the top half, but with slacks, or jeans. the whole look together is way too preppy <3 cupcakes

I like it but would probably wear capris or long pants - I don't do shorts as a rule.

It looks like a costume from an 80s movie. I like preppy and classic, but this is too much! All she needs is a tennis racket and an LLBean tote thrown over one shoulder...

Wait, maybe it was "We may be vanilla but our labs are chocolate." :rotfl:

:rotfl: This reminds me of that rap video from a while back with the preppy rappers. "We may be white but our labs are chocolate!!" HA HA HA :rotfl: This is too funny.

1. Never got the whole "sweater with shorts" combo. 2. If those are like the shorts from the 80s, get ready for some wedgies.

:sick: Hate it. I wore a sweater like that for my junior year yearbook photo - in 1990! The shorts are actually cute... but they'd look WAY better with a bright colored tank.

blech...preppy style gives me the hives! after attending an old-school southern university, i can't stand that crap (maybe that's why i went all rock'n roll and hippie???)

I dunno, I like it but I would probably never wear it. The sweather would be good with jeans or slacks and a striped button-up underneath or a polo collar flipped down (not up).
