How To Dress Preppy

INF191Wearing preppy is more than a style, it is a lifestyle. The preppy look utilizes bright bold colors, especially cyan. The look is clean, neat, and affluent. The look is also known with the country club style due to most of them who pull this looks often go to country club to socialize. Here are some guidelines to dressing preppy.

1. Get an attitude Generally, preps are regarded as quite nice and vivid. Smiling and good manners are absolutely essential when taking preppy style. Usually preppy followers have a chic taste for social and cultural stuff. Nevertheless, don"t confuse preps with those superior, snooty people.

2. Always wear clean and well tailored clothes As the preppy style embodies elegance and classic, maybe a constantly refined, Ivy League look will replace the bright colored casual outfits.

3. Preppy must haves Skirts or dresses Merge those marvelous tees with short plaid skirts or pencil ones. Pastel colors are recommended to select, for example, tan and khaki are the favorites among preps.

Shirts Oxford and Polo shirts are necessary to make the preppy style. No matter long or short sleeved ones, they will all give you a lot of choices for taking fabulous combinations.

Shoes Ribbon flip flops and ballet flats are perfect options for preppy girls. But if you would like to make a modern look, leather high heels will work. Accessories Preps like classic and simple stuff, if you would like to make a girlie look, opt for some small headbands or ribbons. A well tailored bag will also impress people with a preppy look. Canvas bags may be a good option because of the fine texture, young spirit and the plenty of style and colors.
