How To Style The Beverly Hills
Preppy Argyle Sweater Look?
|i Heart Marina
I believe that fashion triumphs are being created and not born and if you’re aiming to capitalize on that authentic Preppy Argyle Sweater look then creating your own ensemble with a 2017-modern twist maybe just be it.
Fashion designer including Salvatore
Ferragamo, Givenchy, Dsquared 2, and Theory have one thing in common when it comes to embracing the preppy look –Modern Argyle Sweater Trend.
The word Argyle is derived from the 17th century tartan of Clan Campbell of Argyll in western Scotland. According to “The Scottish Historical Review,” after Queen Mary of Scots ended the 1565 Chaseabout Raid that opposed her marriage to Lord Darnley, Archibald Campbell (aka fifth Earl of Argyll) returned to his castle at Dunoon, where Queen Mary dared not pursue him in the lineage that spawned this pattern.
The argyle pattern with the diagonal lines criss-crossing the pointy lozenges, has a duality. Thus, the argyle knits and woolens rose to popularity after World War I after Pringle of Scotland employed the pattern, capitalizing on its association with the Duke of Windsor, formerly known as King Edward VIII before his 1936 abdication. It became a popular golfing pattern used in the long socks. However, argyle is not strictly a pattern of elite leisure. It’s also seen on the socks of Wall Street bankers and sweaters work by the elite.
What I like about the ultimate high-low argyle pattern is that you can either prep it up or give it some edge. Here’s how I styled the timeless argyle sequenced sweater and I named it “The Beverly Hills Preppy Sweater Street Style”. This look is consolidated into a modern day street style glam with three 70’s-inspired incorporate elements.
- Bell bottom black denims
- 70’s inspired wedges
- A raised bouffant updo hairstyle.
