Thanks, in part, to the return of Gossip Girl and a resurgence of all things preppy, argyle is back in a big way. But how does one pull it off without looking like Chuck Bass?


Pair a classic argyle sweater with slightly distressed jeans and a modern cropped bomber jacket. Add some animal print ballet flats to de-preppify the look, and throw in a colorful pendant to break up the argyle pattern. Finally, grab a shiny patent tote and cozy grey scarf before heading out the door.

to me, this look does not show you how to wear argyle, rather how to hide the fact that you're wearing argyle with as many odd accessories as possible......

I resent that! Chuck Bass has a "unique" sense of style! *Giggles*
