This outfit is what I imagine modern prep to be. It has all the elements of a clean, crisp, Jackie O.-esque ensemble, but with a twist of modernism. I hope that this will inspire all of you who can't live with out your cable-knit twin set to try a fresher look - and in turn, change the way prepsters all over the world dress (well, maybe not world wide...). So hang up your polos and have a great day at the beach - preferably in the Hamptons!

Our thought: The reason we gave the two options for the scarf and the skirt is because we wanted to have two colour palettes for this look. The first colour choices are truer to the Ralph Lauren outfit (a red/orange colour scheme), while the second colour choices are in a blue/green colour scheme. Choose the one that fits you best, or get both and it's almost like having another outfit!
