Preppy style with the school nostalgia

UNIFORM: A lot of school attires consisted of checkered prints, stripes, mostly coloured. Your options aren’t far from this.

There aren’t many options concerning standing out from the crowd with a casual ensemble. Unless you are creative enough to come up with your distinct style, a lot of the time, you will look like everyone else when you dress up because you are wearing what everyone is.

However, styling options like the preppy style have been tested over time and proved to be quite efficient when it comes to creating a style that is unique and personalized. Plus, a lot of the looks that you create with this style serve everything style savvy and also what you wish your school attire looked like when you were still a student.

Here are a few guidelines on how you can best execute this style without breaking a sweat.

There are plenty of print options.

A lot of our school attires consisted of checkered prints, stripes, mostly coloured, and when executing your preppy style, your options aren’t far from this. Make use of these prints to create the base for your ensemble when putting together a preppy look. You have the option of wearing the prints on your bottoms in the form of a skirt or pants. Adding pleats to your skirt will be the full package with this. Pair it with subtle textures and hues for the complete finish. Colour options here are numerous, with green and red being the most common ones.

Don’t hold back on the accessories

What will set your preppy look from everyone else’s is the accessories you choose here. Simply throwing on a printed skirt and white shirt doesn’t make that the complete preppy look. However, adding lapel pins, a beret hat, chunky loafers and socks to this will bring this ensemble together beautifully. Your other options here are waistcoats, cardigans, and knitwear.

Accessories are an important part of this style because they add that definitive touch to the attire, giving it the style-savvy stamp of approval.
