Preppy Clothing Style – How to Dress Preppy - Classic Back to School Clothes
While those that are required to wear uniforms and adhere to a conservative dress code might not understand why preppy dressing is becoming so popular, the fact of the matter is that preppy clothing is quickly becoming a very popular style of choice. Perhaps it’s due to shows like ‘Gossip Girl or ‘NYC Prep’, but either way, there’s no doubt about it that dressing preppy is becoming a sought after style.
I haven’t watched the shows Gossip Girl or NYC Prep, but I do know how to dress with a classic ‘preppy’ style. I’ve been dressing this way ever since I can remember so it comes naturally to me. I love having a closet full of items that can be mixed and matched and represent a conservative, classic approach to many aspects of life.
This article will serve as your Preppy Clothing Guide and give you some ideas for some classic, back to school clothes for girls.
An Overview of Prep Style
People that dress preppy often do so because of how they were raised as children. I suppose it’s very easy to learn, and since it is becoming popular in today’s culture, more and more people are choosing to develop a preppy style later on in life, for one reason or another. ‘Preppy’ dressers understand the benefits of owning basic, timeless styles of clothing because first off – it’s so easy to get dressed in the morning.
An Overview of Prep Style
Less is more and simple is everything. Conservative dressing is not about drawing attention to yourself, rather it is a display of your attitude towards life.
The word ‘Preppy’ used to refer to students that attended preparatory schools. The dress codes put in place at these institutions encourage and strongly promote modest, conservative dress, neatness and to put it simply – looking ‘put together’. Dressing this way is believed to encourage success and a serious attitude towards one’s life and academics. The word ‘Prep’ or ‘Preppy’ stuck and today, people are often labeled with the term, even if they haven’t attended preparatory school, but instead, refers to their personal clothing style and style of life.
