Preppy Girl Style
We are most familiar with this style reminiscent of the ’80s, a time when this famous fashion ruled a good part of the decade. Embraced by everyone, from Royals to streetwear influencers. Everyone has taken part in adding this tailored trend into their wardrobes. Preppy dressing is having a rebirth and exploding again with a modern update. Overall, the same elements of this trademark collegiate aesthetic are still present. A classic wardrobe of crisp, clean basics that represent a polished and elevated look are the foundation. Putting a new twist on this style also referred to as academia, is specifically the color palettes. There is what is known as light and dark versions. Shades of brighter, lighter neutrals and pastels would correspond versus a darker, deeper fall like color scheme accordingly.
Achieving this look is easily attainable by incorporating timeless pieces into your wardrobe. Traditional items like blazers, cashmere sweaters, button down shirts, cardigans, dainty florals, tartan plaids and argyle are some of the essential staples required to nail the mood. Minimal accessories like pearls, stud earrings and loafers are perfect for completing the elegant varsity vibe.
This look is widely appealing because it transcends age groups and can even be applied to the work from home wardrobe we require right now. As we move forward in returning to the workplace, it’s likely the transitioning dress code will be more business casual making this the perfect style to wear. A benefit to this trend is that it’s practical. With the pieces centered around many items that are closet necessities, the selections can be worn almost anywhere and will never go out of style!
