Hi, everyone! It’s Grace from Smile Couture! I’m so thrilled to be posting here today! Anyway, as I got to thinking about topics, I thought all of you prepsters might enjoy a little sports style, as we are a sporty type of people. Crew has always been renowned as a “preppy” sport, and while some rowers hate that, I embrace it! While we might not get as much style cred as equestrians do, rower style is definitely there to delve into. Here are some of my picks for adding a little regatta style to your wardrobe:
A Rower’s Essentials: A good watch is an absolutely necessity to any coxswain, and I love the handsome style of this Panerai Regatta watch! We also “stole” boat shoes from sailors; they’re perfect for slippery docks! Of course, sweatshirts are a necessity for cold days on the water, and the oars on this Ralph Lauren one are too great.
We invented it: But seriously. A striped, tipped blazer is literally the uniform of regatta officials, and a dime a dozen at Henley!
Our motif: Oars can be found everywhere if you look hard enough! These cufflinks and the tie bar…swoon!
How do you put your sport in your style?
