I love the preppy style, I wore this throughout highschool, but we had a fixed uniform, and finally got to vary it a bit more during university.

I think they call it sloaney in the UK.
I used to dress like this (and still do sometimes ) but I'm getting tired of this.

I don't think there is anything wrong with dressing in this way- dressing for trends is not nesesarily Better

sweet_n_simple- I like those looks in post 89, but I don't see those as preppy They are like a list of current trends- jumpers over turtlenecks, waist belts, sweaterdressing, tights, ballet flats-

none of that is preppy at all

I love preppy, when neutral/toned down colors are used. You know, not the "sorority girl" lime green/hot pink ensemble --not to offend, cause it can look cute on some people..

I like nautical preppy (lots of navy and white), uniform preppy (v-neck sweater over polo with tailored shorts/mini), minimalist preppy... oh and the list goes on. My FAVORITE is menswear-inspired preppy (maybe that's a different category in its own), like the Annie Hall style posted earlier. It's like women wearing men's preppy clothes, not girly-fied..

Haha nice vid
I like the neatness of preppy style (not like most posted pics, but more as in the clip) but it seems pretty exclusive; I think a rich kid dressing like a "gangsta" (best example see Havoc) will earn far less scorn than a non-WASP kid dressing all out preppy style. I also don't like the attitude associated with preppy style

and I can't see why you need a mansion, a mercedes in said mansion's driveway and a membership to the country club to dress that way.

BTW, can someone give me a definition of preppy? Isn't it the Holister, Abcrombie kids' world or what?

no that's the "high schooler" definition of preppy.

Preppy is more like Jcrew/ Ralph Lauren. Old money American look.

I suppose preppy is my style. But I don't take it too far. I always add distinctive touches. Yesterday, for instance, I was wearing black skinnies, a white babydoll top and black ballet flats. But I wore a military jacket instead of a cardigan.
