Let’s face it: sometimes being preppy can get expensive. While we like to save money here and there (that sweater doesn’t need to be thrown away just because it has a hole! Sew on cute elbow patches!), when it comes down to the essentials, we like to buy the best. However, as a recent college grad who’s trying to save up for a new car and a new laptop (PC or Mac?!), I can’t always afford the best.
For instance, one of my favorite preppy trends that I have yet to try out is the smoking slipper, mainly because brands like Stubbs & Wootton charge $400 for theirs. Luckily for all of us, I found affordable loafers on Gap‘s website, and, at $39.95, you can afford to get several pairs! Which pair would you wear?
