Class Act: Vince Vandorpe gives 5 preppy ways to bring a casual touch to smart outfits



Picking out a proper outfit and finding you have overdressed—or even worse, underdressed—can be an awkward situation. Don’t fret! Let preppy styling help you dress smart and sharp! Skirting the line between fun and functional, Vince Vandorpe shows us the seamless mixing and matching of classy and casual pieces.
 

1. Dress to Impress  

VANS Php 3,698

 
For a go-to first date look, channel the clean-cut guy next door vibe with a bit of edge through preppy staples and a pair of skate shoes.
 

2. Hang Loose 

POLO RALPH LAUREN Php 4,196

 
“I’m really laidback, and comfort in what I wear is a big part of that,” Vince confesses. Whether on a barkada road trip or a spontaneous guy’s night in, keep it chill with a relaxed ensemble, paired with shoes you can easily slip on.
 

3. Tradition, Refreshed 

CONVERSE Php2,390

 
Never go out of style by adapting conventional preppy fashion in a more modern silhouette. Fitted items and timeless sneaker icons in refined hues of navy, white, and crimson will seal the deal
 

4. Sweater Weather 

LEVIS Php 2,750

 
On cool and cloudy days, put on some light layers you can easily peel off. Don’t be afraid to experiment by adding pops of color, too. “It’s all about trying something new but still being sensible,” says Vince.
 

5. Neutral Territory

MILANOS PHP 899.75

 
“I’m convinced white sneakers go with anything,” shares Vince. Match a minimalist blazer-and-chino-combo with these trainers for an effortlessly crisp ensemble—perfect for any occasion!
