The beauty of this trend is that you likely have a lot of elements already at home. It’s how you pair things that counts. Clashing colours and prints are key, so striped PJ bottoms with a punchy green vest are perfect. Play safe and add a simple tee or long sleeve, or take things a step further with a logo tee to introduce a third colour. Finish the look with Birkenstocks and visible fluffy socks.
For a slightly more pared-back take, gingham trousers and a retro-style knit (look on Depop to get one for less) are the perfect match. A striking, clashing sock breaks things up and nods to the trend, as does a pair of lenses. If you’re not a glasses wearer, pick up a pair of blue-light lenses instead – they look chic and are great for your eyes during screen time. Silver trainers bring a touch of modernity.
This look is styled up but still off duty. Striped knitwear is a cornerstone of the trend, and this vest is a cosy and cool option. Corduroy trousers and a houndstooth blazer lean towards prep – but a cool cap adds a fun edge. Sign off with chunky loafers and colourful socks.
This cool combo matches track pants to an oversized chunky knit – spot on for that preppy-cosy crossover. Pink socks and a bright red scarf bring interest, as does a third clashing colour: a pair of green Gazelles. A textured bucket hat and sunnies complete the look.
