We’re pretty into preppy style: equestrian, heritage… you know, clean, functional clothes that make you look like you have a fat wallet and an Ivy League Alma Mater. Celebs love this look too, and Jodhpurs are one way to get that job done in a snap. LeAnn Rimes was spotted recently in an Elizabeth and James Paillette Trim Cotton Blouse, Rag & Bone/JEAN The Jodhpur Legging Jeans, and some fierce Lanvin Cutout Heel Pumps. “Ides of March” actress Evan Rachel Wood wore her J Brand‘s Jodhpur in Sharkskin in a mix of masculin-féminin with high top boots and a leather jacket. These ladies have the look down—but which interpretation is your fav?

J Brand‘s latest release has the equestrian style-loving crowd cheering for joy—a sophisticated, fashion-forward take on jodhpurs with inner-knee patches and ankle zippers. Made with a fine luxe twill, this style is coming out with their Fall 2011 release, and they combine a playful sporty prep aesthetic with something that feels sexy (and expensive). Will they catch on? Celebs will probably love them, and they’ll make waves before long—but one thing’s for sure. These will look killer with a pair of heeled boots and a suit jacket for fall.

Model Katie Fogarty embodies a college girl’s preppy-chic, sans-hangover & frat house boyfriend in Elle Russia’s April 2011 issue. The ultra cool denim separates come direct from the likes of Isabel Marant, Tommy Hilfiger, and Paul & Joe. We love the red graffiti inspired denim paired with the navy blue oversized pullover (would we wear it? Yes.) and the chambray shirt donned with the lettermen jacket. The denim shorts, one styled with lace up oxford booties and tube socks, the other with a striped navy and white leather belt, with a two toned yellow and white shirt, gives shining new potential to the nerdy bookworm’s summer digs. Forgarty’s tousled side swept curls, pull together this preppy look, leaving us wondering whether we should crack a book or two this afternoon!

We like cute. We like lighthearted. We like BBQ’s, a cold beer, friends gathered around a picnic table, flowers, butterfly nets… you get the idea. So the Springfield spring/summer 2011 lookbook was like a frolic through the park for us, and we’d be lying if we said it didn’t give us some adorable, preppy ideas for festive dressing in the warmer months. Ideas like colored denim shorts paired with layered breezy tops, denim work shirts paired with long boho skirts, one-piece jumpers with sweet sandals… the list goes on. SO go ahead, toss it back and get ready for spring!
