The mission of a fashion blog is generally to talk about trends, but let’s talk also about styles that never go out of fashion, it’s either you like them or you don’t. This week I’ll try to give you an insight into the preppy style. For those of you who are not so familiar with this trend, the term preppy derives from the expensive pre-college preparatory or prep schools that upper- middle-class children on the United States’s Northeastern states sometimes attend. The usage of preppy in American high schools is quite often used to refer to a fashion choice, rather than the preppy lifestyle associated with upper-class East Coast preps. Prep in American high schools, simply refers to those who dress preppy. Preppy fashion started in the late 1940s and 1950s and is still an embraced style nowadays with brands like J. Press, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren representing it.

In the beginning Preppy Style was all about argyle sweaters, chinos, madras, Nantucket Reds, button down Oxford cloth shirts, polo shirts and boat shoes. These are still the main distinctive features these days, but fashion has evolved a lot over time so prep style got “altered” too and you can find your own preppy style ;)

You can choose to wear the classic preppy as in the photos below, or… preppy-look-style preppy-style-1 milan-plaid-skirt-688x1024 alexa-chung-preppy-style … you can add different textures and patterns, accessories and mix it with other fashion styles in order to create one that fits you better.

    I have to show some appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of such a circumstance. Because of exploring through the online world and finding basics that were not productive, I thought my entire life was well over. Being alive minus the approaches to the problems you have sorted out by way of your entire posting is a crucial case, and ones that would have adversely damaged my career if I hadn’t discovered your blog post. Your actual competence and kindness in handling almost everything was valuable. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a step like this. I can at this point look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your reliable and result oriented guide. I will not think twice to recommend your web blog to anybody who would like direction about this subject matter.

    I’ve always love the preppy style especially with a bit of a modern twist. I think many of us are drawn to it because it’s a classic yet you can add your own bits and pieces!
