Prep Time: Ivy League Style Is About To Invade Abbot Kinney

Well, color us excited! We just got word that an east coast classic is setting up shop on the best coast next month. Gant, the preppy powerhouse hailing from New Haven, Connecticut, is bringing its Ivy League style to 1308 Abbot Kinney Boulevard. (Another spot to add to Venice's roster of fresh new shops!)
The brand's coed-approved shirtdresses and knitted sweaters are what collegiate dreams are made of. But, if you're wary of the New England vibe fitting in on our shores, wait 'til you see Gant's palm tree and watermelon prints — so spot-on for casual SoCal outings! Plus, designer Michael Bastian's playfully printed bikinis and lightweight button-downs are perfect for days spent poolside.
Whether your style is more Santa Monica than Stanford, we're pretty sure this university-inspired shop is going to school your summer wardrobe.
