Preppy? Preps? Prepsters?

Preppy isn’t just a fashion statement, it’s a lifestyle. Dressed to impress, these fashion icons never leave the house without looking put together. The preps have a universal motto to their style and that is class. From oxford button downs to Sperry shoes, our preppy ladies and gents have a very distinct style. They know exactly what brands to buy: to name a few, Polo, Lacoste and Vineyard Vines are some of the top brands chosen by our preps.  


We understand the particular style of our ‘prepsters’ and respect their classy and put together fashion sense. When we say respect, we mean waving our hands back and forth idolizing the effort and thought that is put into each outfit. We all know it’s already hard enough to get out of bed on a Monday morning and when you add putting on a decent looking outfit, we’re playing a whole different ballgame. Hence, this is why we call preppy a lifestyle, rather than just a trend. 

From vacationing to Martha’s Vineyard to just hitting up the driving range, our preps definitely need some sunnies to protect them. Though we might not be a typical brand looked at by our preppy fashionistas, our glasses fit right in with almost any style. Our colored lenses add a slash of color to any look and you can never go wrong with our timeless tortoise and gradient brown lenses. At SOLO, we feel like it is crucial for our brand to appeal to the masses. So, Prepsters, Hipsters, Yogis, Adventurers, we bet there’s a pair of our glasses with your name written all over them, just trust us and go check out our site! 

Hipster Fashion

Flooding the streets from Haight-Ashbury to the heart of New York City, hipsters are beginning to take the spotlight when it comes to the fashion game. They are the innovative souls of our generation. Their independent style of high-wasted shorts, tight pants, stressed denim, graphic tees, and high-tops sneakers (just to name a few) separate them from the “average Joes” of this world. Always staying ahead of the trends, Hipsters frequent local thrift stores and resale shops to seek out lost gems to add to their eclectic wardrobe.

Our sunnies manage to fit right in with the Hipster crowd. The combination of our bright lens and recycled bamboo temples separate our glasses from, as previously stated, the “average Joes” of the sunglass world. SOLOs have an understated yet original style that makes them appealing and pleasing to all types of people. We personally suggest the BAMBLUES, NOLIAWOODS, and HONEYWOOD-YAs for the daring folks who want a little more personal touch to their outfit. 

This one goes out to you, Hipsters, the trendsetters of this world. When you get a chance to take a break from rummaging through vintage furniture shops or picking up your next vinyl, take a moment to check out our glasses. Grab your fixie and take a trip to one of our SOLO retailer’s shops or feel free to order a pair online!
