Vampire Weekend and MGMT Champion East Coast Prep

One of the most popular trends in the menswear department for spring is the East Coast prep look – as seen on contemporary indie bands Vampire Weekend and MGMT.

East Coast prep is polished from head to toe, and a typical outfit is comprised of a buttoned-up plaid or printed oxford shirt (plus bow tie, natch), cropped pants, and either boat shoes or desert boots.

Ezra Koenig, Vampire Weekend’s front man, rocks the classic East Coast prep look, whether he’s onstage or off, and the classic lines of his prepster wardrobe seem to match his band’s signature upbeat, worldly sound.

Koenig often opts for a pair of skinny jeans, or solid/printed cotton shorts in the hotter months, when VW plays festivals.

Up top, Koenig sports a tight-fit button-down or quirky cotton t-shirt, complete with witty slogan, which Koenig was seen wearing backstage at this year’s Coachella festival.

It’s easy to mimic Koenig’s classic look – stick with simple colors like gray, navy blue, and white, but make sure to add a splash of color somewhere in your outfit, whether it be a pair of light pink shorts or a colorful pair of oxfords. Finish your entire look off with a pair of Ray-Ban wayfarers to stay suave.
