Preppy chic

by - 03 octombrie

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 fashion choice, rather than the preppy lifestyle associated with upper-class East Coast preps. 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 Laren representing it.

You all remember Blair Waldorf, right? Want to dress in a clean-cut, polished and preppy fashion just like she did? All you have to do is cultivate a classic, simple look, with just a few key accessories to tie your wardrobe together. However, looking preppy is more than just throwing on a shirt and a headband; it's exuding the aura of a specific privileged lifestyle. Presenting yourself in the right way can be the key to being as prepy as you want.

Keep your look simple! Prep style is, at its core, made up of clean lines, high-quality textiles, close fits, and modest cuts. If an article of clothing looks particulary flashy, complicated or revealing, it probably shouldn't be called preppy. It would be called hot or sexy, which is not the look you're going for. Add different textures and patterns, accessories and mix it with other fashion styles in order to create one that fits you better. You can add some jewelry with studs or spikes and the classic preppy will suddenly become edgy. Or, just like I did, choose a pink blush blazer and be romantic!

Don't follow rules, play with style and always be yourself!

XOXO,
Valentina
