Preppy Clothes

By Elma B.

The preppy style has been inspired by a lifestyle in the country and all that surrounds it, e.g., hunting, sailing, playing polo, rowing, horse racing, and even lacrosse. Designers like Ralph Lauren, Vineyard Vines,  J.Crew, and Burberry have made a career out of making clothes for people who prefer preppy clothing. Some geographic areas in the U.S. that may serve as poster examples of preppy style are the Hamptons and other areas in the Northeast. 

A reoccurring theme in preppy clothes are collared shirts (with horizontal stripes and checkered), plaid design, blazers, wool/cashmere sweaters, vests, loafers, and khaki pants. Women like to sport oversized sunglasses with a pearl necklace and pearl earrings. The style is very conventional and therefore one is not likely to spot anything that defies tradition. Also, during the summer preppy clothes are likely to be colorful, e.g. pastel pinks, yellows and greens or just bright pinks, yellows and greens. Celebrities and pubic figures that appear to be fans of the preppy clothing are Taylor Swift, Kate Middleton , and Olivia Palermo. For more on preppy clothing, see the photos below.
