A few months ago I featured a pair of yummy Sperry boots in an Autumnal outfit post. Although a few of my friends own a pair of Sperry's signature Top-Siders, I'm yet to buy any. I think the Sperry team are trying to tempt me into buying some boat shoes because they've been busy tweeting about their latest styles!

Bluefish - Black Leopard: £79.99

Bluefish - Linen Sand: £79.99

The 2 new styles they've been raving about are called Bluefish (shown above) and Angelfish (featured below) and they're exclusive to Office. These shoes are definitely an acquired taste, they're both uber preppy and scream 'Boat Club'...Rah Rah!

Angelfish - Purple Plaid: £74.99

Angelfish - Linen Oat: £74.99

Angelfish - Black Boucle: £74.99

In case y'all don't know, Sperry's an all-American brand well known for it's boat shoes and has been in the business for decades and decades. These 2 new styles are (unsurprisingly) really popular in the US! Although my taste in fashion is pretty eclectic, I've always been fascinated by the 'all-American' style and I love preppy clothing brands like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and the Gap. If Carlton from Fresh Prince was still around I'm sure he'd be rockin' a pair of these bad boys.

The cute plaid, leopard print and tweed detailing add a fashionable twist to a once regular deck shoe. Unfortunately I don't have plans to hop on board a sail boat anytime soon so if I do buy a pair, I'll be wearing mine with some skinny jeans and chunky knitwear - preppy in a subtle way!

I'd love to know what you think, are you a fan? My favourite is definitely the Angelfish Linen Oat pair. I like the shape and colour and think they'd work well with my wardrobe. If you like either style you should follow Sperry on Twitter because I've noticed they're giving a few pairs away! Fingers crossed I win some too so I can bag myself a preppy Abercrombie model.
