Weekly Picks: Preppy Chic for Labor Day

Preppy Chic for Labor DaySummer officially comes to a close on Labor Day. However, to say this will be Summer’s last ‘hurrah’ is premature as the heat and humidity will continue to climb past the holiday weekend here in Connecticut. This versatile ensemble makes for a chic and preppy look for the festivities during Labor Day Weekend and beyond. A button down linen shirt goes a long way in warm weather. In this case, we suggest folding the sleeves, wearing a white camisole underneath and pairing it with pleated white shorts. Ignore the ‘never wear white after Labor Day’ rule and keep a pair of white shorts handy until the weather cools down for fall. In terms of accessories, choose tan wedge sandals, elegant no-fuss jewelry, a Panama hat and oversize sunglasses. The final touch is added with the Botkier crossbody bag in cobalt, a piece that can easily slip into your fall wardrobe seamlessly. Lastly, don’t forget to put plenty of sun block. You’re going to need it this weekend. The Weekly Picks chosen for this look created via Polyvore includes:
