The Preppy Little Details

One of the things I love about some of my favorite preppy brands are the "secret" details present in their clothes. I refer to these little details as "secret" because they are not visible to anyone else when I'm wearing the garment. Despite the fact that I am the only one who knows they exist when I wear them, I still think they add a nice extra touch. These preppy little details are one of the many things that contribute to the exceptional design of two of my favorite brands: Lilly Pulitzer and J.Crew. Here are a few examples from my closet:

Lilly Pulitzer Creme Fraiche Shorts:
