Street Style: Color Me Plaid

Name: Dinesh Penugonda Spotted: MoMA, NYC Hometown: Nanuet, NY Occupation: District Manager for Abercrombie & Fitch Describe your style: My style is pretty laid back with classic and preppy elements. What's your essential staple piece of clothing/accessory in your wardrobe: A watch. It's the best way to pull a look together. Favorite places to shop: Abercrombie brands (discount!), G-star, Rugby, Zara What he's wearing: Shirt: Cockpit USA Pants: A&F Belt: A&F Watch: Citizen Skyhawk Ecodrive Shoes: Sperry Topsiders Why we love his look: It's not easy to make the classic, all-American look appear anew—but there was something about Dinesh's style, perhaps a sense of casual refinement, that made us do a double take. His bright, colorful plaid shirt, and canary pants brings the traditional look to life, proving that the preppy look most certainly has its certain charm—when done right.
