In my post yesterday I promised to discuss different styles one could posses and help you identify which defines you as an individual.
I mentioned about 6 possible styles that could be yours. For those we missed my earlier post you can go back and read it up.
Today, I will be focusing on Preppy style. Both men and women style could be preppy.
What is a preppy style?Preppy style is all about a classic, clean and collegiate appearance. According to Wikipedia preppy refers to a subculture in the US associated with old private North eastern university preparatory schools. The terms are used to denote a person seen as characteristic of a student or alumnus of these schools. Characteristics of preps in the past include a particular subcultural speech, vocabulary, dress, mannerisms, etiquette, most times a reflection of bourgeoisie(upper class) upbringing.[
So when you think preppy you think post war times,classy ,shirts,polo shirts,boots…. you think sweaters. Designers like Ralph Laurent, Tommy Hilfiger comes to mind. Not to forget Victoria Beckham.
So preppy doesn’t really mean boring because today’s fashion allow you to miss the old with the new. You don’t have to be a millionaire to own a preppy style these days, just know what kind of clothes are preppy and will help you stay true to your style.
