You say Preppy... we say "School- Kid". Growing up dressing "Preppy" or being a "Prep" either mean you actually went to a Preparatory School.. Or that you dressed more up tight and ultra conservative... think Carl from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. During the 90's we saw even the Hip-Hop cool kids injecting some Preppy looks into their wardrobe, but making it all their own... hence "School-Kid". A look that wasn't as buttoned up...like Will wearing the uniform on his 1st day of school. He definitely made the usually conservative look all his own and refused to fit in with the rest...
If you curious to try more preppy looks, but don't feel excited about possibly wearing khaki and monogrammed blazers, then it's all good! Follow our street style lead, and inject your own personality into any type of look or outfit, so it's doesn't look like you are wearing a uniform or being a poser.
