preppy is a life style... when i grew up i was in an environment with lots of preppy fans... to some people its a way of life... although thesedays i only wear preppy stuff for casual wear i personally think people who dress preppy come from good clean families... this is in general... think going to country club... or a day at the stables...
The reason that most people dislike the preppy look, as far as I see it, is for one of two reasons. They either hate the sell-out, snobby, waspy image that it was originaly intended for. OR they hate the fact that people are emulating a style that lacks originality. I personally live in the capital of preppyness, and it seaps into my personal style. I own cashmere cable knit sweaters, and a ton of polos, but I think that depending on your attitude these things can look very different on different people.
I agree w/ MjCouture! 'Preps' usually carry themselves pretty high which really does give off that "snobby" impression so most people kinda look the other way. i kinda like it though cuz the girls look very feminine and cute.
