Stylewise think Mandy Moore, Charlotte Casraghi and Emmy Rossum.

I hate the 'american' (I'm sorry but I couldn't think of a better word, I don't mean to offend anyone) preppy look, like multicoloured Louis Vuitton everything, pink minis, pink tops, hair that got bleached and straightened the hell out, Tiffany bracelet, rhinestone mobile phones etc.
The classic preppy look on the other hand - soft colours, simple cuts, expensive materials like leather and cashmere, the style you think of as the stereotype English school uniform, that is cool and always a safe option.

too preppy looks stupid IMHO, i think it looks just dull when you have 45 layers of cl othes on ..and 20 collars..no no no.
I do like all elgegant clothes though, black,white and dark blue.

I kind of like preppy clothes...but yes, the "American" preppy Cola described is disgusting, I agree with you 100 %. Though, in the other hand, I love some clothes by Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren, but only the classic ones. Especially Hilfiger.

I think the best way to preppy style is mixing very simple and minimalist with classics.But now I'm almost saying the same things Cola already said...

I know two girls who have the perfect preppy style. I'm secretly their greatest admirer!

Another tip that Im not seeing, but may be on here because im just browseing, is that preppy girls dont wear alot of makeup. Go to your local country clubs, or for that matter the ralph lauren website, and look at the models. The makeup is done to look as if they arent wearing any at all. Also, overplucked eyebrows are not preppy. More is better. Preppy has a longstanding reputation because is doesnt fluctuate with the trends. Natural is always better than assimilated beauty. Ill post some pics soon, so you can see what I mean.

nothing on preppy looks for men!
what you lot think to that?

i personally love preppy looks all together! love a girl prepped up!
i like to try and dress preppy but as Im only young at 16, i find it hard to make the look a bit more trendy for males, im not a fan of tucking in shirts with really high pants!

I like the preppy look. I usually dont dress preppy, but I do admit I like it, usually I dont really fit into any kind of "look" I've been leaning towards wearing stuff most people dont. No I dont mean I'm being one of those goth/emo/scene kids that think they are being different by dressing like the rest of the people that think they are being different haha. My look is clean, and mixed between a bunch of different things. Most of the time I just wear a polo shirt with some camo shorts with the occasional bandana (yea I have one in every color to match my outfits ^^; But sometimes I wear stuff like ribbon that people wrap gifts with, as like bracelets or ankle bracelets. Well I guess its not entirely different from most people at my school, but I dont dress the same as everyone else.

I love preppy clothing. The sexiest thing to me is when women wear slightly baggy, androgynous preppy clothes that guys normally would wear. So hot! I like wearing baggy polos with tight jeans, argyle vests and sweaters; I just loooooove when women wear baggy knit sweaters!!!!!!
