How To Wear Preppy Style Today

how to wear preppy style today fashion trends street style

Preppy style has been seen so much during the the Gossip Girl era when I was like sixteen years old, it was pretty much THE outfit goals and inspired me everyday! Just about few years ago, but still, I wanted to reintroduce you to a more sophisticated and modern preppy style for today.

How To Wear Preppy Style Today

“Fashion fades, only style remains”—Coco Chanel.

 Coco Chanel is obviously right. Before sophisticating any style, before updating any style or look, you have to keep in mind that you can’t change it from A to Z. You just have to keep the basics and what this style is known for

Preppy style: sweater + shirt + pants.

Easy as pie, now you know the basics update it to the current trends.

Sweater: take it oversize. Shirt: take it striped. Pants: take it skinny.

Once you’re up to date, add a very fundamental accessorize.

→ Guess what…? Starbucks! Yes please!

Now you know everything. All you have to do is rock this preppy style!
