How To Do Preppy Style

Hey guys,

This is my take on "The how to guide to preppy fashion", inspired by the 1950s and film and tv from Blair in gossip girl to style icon Audrey Hepburn. I assure you that petite girls can pull off this look just as much as catwalk models.

Get Familiar with The Basics

Fitted Three quarter or boyfriend blazers are great.

Draped around the shoulders for that authentic 1950s prep is great for warm summer days but cardigans that button to the top are ideal whatever the season.

Sporting events aren't always the place for fashion inspiration but classic polo shirts we're everywhere at some point and though some of us still think of them as work shirts, right? But that being said a fitted pastel coloured or white Polo shirt can be the perfect choice of sport prep style. But my personal favourite is Horse riding, it has always been a classy affair but taking inspiration from dressage stars can give you the perfect preppy style for fall.

I also like those quilted jackets with leather look trim and elbows.

Blouses with Peter pan collars

Pleats pleats and more pleats.

Knee high socks and tights.

Headbands, pearl necklaces and earrings and natural make up except for when red lipstick is needed.

Ponytails and soft curls are must do's.

The ultimate preppy style icon
