    Preppy Outfit

    I've got this event coming up where I plan to wear a Preppy style outfit but I can't think of a good colour trouser for this combo:
    Beige Blazer
    Sky Blue Oxford Button-Down
    Pink College Stripe Tie
    Brown Brogues

    Help Please!

    Dark blue? Maybe more of an indigo than a true navy.

    I just have a feeling it would be a bit of a bad contrast with a beige blazer.

    A true preppy look would be to wear jeans: the archetypal 'preppy' look is a blazer, oxford and jeans with a turn-up and loafers.

    I know but I just think blue jeans would look a bit odd. What are your thoughts on white or off-white with it?

    White or off-white would work great, particular if it's a daytime/outdoor summer event.

    White jeans are definately a great call, although white chinos/tailored trousers could work just as well if the fit is bang on.

    I would swerve white jeans all day long with a beige blazer. the first suggestion of navy/dark blue is a good one. And for a true preppy look, it's got to be chinos. Beige and dark blue go great together - don't worry about it clashing.

    Or if you can't get your head around it, what about grey chinos? Or even cords? Just get the fit nice and slim to keep it contemporary

    Cheers guys. I was planning to wear the shirt buttoned up tucked in, with the tie done in a half-windsor knot to try and stand out a bit.
