The preppy look is the classic collegiate style of dressing that insinuates a bit of americana, sportswear (think tennis and golf) and classic styling. While it can often be considered quite conservative, I can show you how to wear the preppy look in a more modern and versatile way. Again, I bring up the world’s favorite princess (and style icon) Kate Middleton who illustrates so perfectly how to wear the preppy look while remaining feminine, elegant and incredibly contemporary. Yes, we are talking about polos, shirt dresses, cardigans and chinos but its all about mixing things in a way to keep them young, fresh and even a bit sexy. The preppy look is super versatile because it is polished enough for the workplace and yet casual enough for any weekend activities. It is also a very safe and easy look to wear. We’re not pushing the boat out here – there’s nothing particularly wild or risky – its simple, classic and beautiful. Check out some of my suggestions for how to wear the preppy look from desk to date and from the park to brunch.
