Just Don’t Call It Pink

Nantucket red

Call it Nantucket red, salmon, even dusty berry (okay that last one is questionable) – just don’t call it pink.  You will get the death stare from wasps and prepsters everywhere if you call this distinct summer shade pink.

Don’t ask me why.  I’m sure it’s like calling Beyonce an alright performer.  It’s just not right.

Nantucket red, as I’m going to call it, is a staple in every prepster’s wardrobe and is an indispensable part of my summer style.  There are plenty of cuts and price points to choose from (see below) and trust me – these are definitely something you should have.

They’re classic and, as my east coast brethren will attest, they make your summer tan pop.
