What is Preppy Style?

Preppy style, short for “preppie” or “preppiness,” is a fashion and lifestyle aesthetic that originated in the northeastern United States and is particularly associated with Ivy League universities.

The term “preppy” is derived from “preparatory,” reflecting the association with preparatory schools and the collegiate atmosphere.

Key characteristics of preppy style include:

1. Classic Clothing

Preppy fashion emphasizes timeless and classic pieces. Common staples include polo shirts, button-down Oxford shirts, chinos, khakis, blazers, sweater vests, and cable-knit sweaters.

2. Colors and Patterns

Preppy style often features a palette of bright and pastel colors, such as navy, white, pink, and light blue. Classic patterns like stripes, plaids, and argyle are prevalent.

3. Collared Shirts

Button-down collared shirts, especially Oxford shirts, are a quintessential part of preppy style. These can be worn casually or dressed up.

4. Outerwear

Blazers, cardigans, and pullovers are common preppy outerwear choices. Navy blazers, in particular, are a staple.

5. Bottoms

Khaki pants, chinos, Bermuda shorts, and skirts are commonly associated with preppy style. Denim can be included but is usually well-kept and not overly distressed.

6. Footwear

Classic footwear includes boat shoes, loafers, penny loafers, and ballet flats. Socks are often worn with loafers and boat shoes.

7. Accessories

Accessories like pearls, headbands, and scarves may be incorporated. Classic accessories such as watches and leather belts are also common.

8. Sporting Influences

Preppy style has evolved over the years, incorporating modern influences while maintaining its traditional and polished aesthetic.
