new springtime jack purcells

Jack Purcell Distressed Sneakers
$65 at J.Crew

Visit my weekly blog post at Splendicity about "Always Preppy Sneakers":

The classic springtime sneaker for me has always been the Converse Jack Purcell. I have gone through multitudes of white and black Jack Purcells since I was ten years old. I wear each pair until they are so broken in that the rubber starts peeling off and the canvas resembles 80's hypercolor, yet they never go out of style.

As the temperatures rise and the flowers begin to bloom, the fresh and preppy fashions surface each year with plaids, linens, florals, and shorts. The Jack Purcell pairs perfectly with these styles to exude a relaxed and beachy vibe. They look great when they're white and crisp and laced up with a pair of khakis or when they're unlaced and worn with barefeet and a cotton tank dress.

Converse has produced many great collaborations over the last few years to infuse new life into their classic styles. I am very excited about the new Jack Purcells by John Varvatos and a new style sold exclusively at J.Crew that are a perfect addition to your casual spring wardrobe.
