Masculine Prep? Of course!

There are so many masculine patterns that can be considered preppy (houndstooth, herringbone and tartan, to name a few), but mixing a good old-fashioned plaid with monogram really can't be beat. Once you've got that down, try layering on some more pattern (like a bold stripe) to complete the look. Photo courtesy of Tobi Fairley Interior Design
