Sport the Relaxed Look this Christmas

5th Nov 2014

The preppy style is a favourite of those seeking a smart, yet relaxed look. 


It can work well for both younger and older guys, so it could be an ideal choice as a gift for a style-conscious father, son, brother or boyfriend.



The look is unfussy, emphasising good fit and quality fabrics rather than flashy details or brashly-emblazoned brand names. The air of laid-back confidence is enriched by bursts of bright colours - in both pastels and richer hues. 


Look for polo shirts, loafers, blazers, plaid shirts, smart jeans and chinos. To ensure the look still works on colder autumn/winter days, layer-up using cashmere and cable knits. Barbour jackets and stylish scarves complete the look - ideal for a Sunday dog-walk that ends up with lunch at a country pub.

So if you have a present to buy for a guy in your life who likes to look sharp without shouting about it, go for a preppy-style piece. Chances are, he'll love it - in a casual kind of way. All of the items in the collage are available on the Oxfam Online Shop and are linked below!
