In the second installment of preppy retro week, I’m going to share some wonderful news with you. If you grew up in the 80’s or 90’s like me, I’m sure you remember wearing your Tretorns. I had several pair, each with a different colored logo to match my different outfits. My favorites were the ones with the madras logo! Keep in mind that my tennis skills are hardly pro, but I sure love my Tretorns. Later this year, we’ll get to see my favorite Sex and the City character, Charlotte, wearing her Lilly Pulitzer “Not So Crabby” skirt with a cardigan over the shoulders and her Tretorns. Tretorns are the ultimate preppy tennis shoe and are even mentioned as a wardrobe staple in the Official Preppy Handbook.
You know what they say, good style never goes out of style. I was thrilled to learn that Tretorns are available at Lands End, the Tretorn store in Georgetown, and many other online sites. Aren’t these green ones fabulous?
