Preppy: The Bubbly & Happy Trend

I am so excited preppy: the bubbly & happy trend has emerged on the fashion scene! I love clean cut, classic, and timeless clothes (which define the "preppy" style) because they are polished, enhance your appearance and make you look slimmer! 

 As a whole, the preppy trend is timeless and not necessarily a trend because of its timeless pieces.  However, there are elements that move preppy clothes into the trendy category such as: ribbon belts, popped collared shirts, and rope-belt shirt dresses...  

 In case you have any preconceived notions about preppy-wear, let me be clear by saying it's not for snobby people.  Actually, preppy clothes are meant for friendly people who are happy with who they are and always have good manners- 
characteristics that resonates with me!

So, now that we got that out, here's all you need to know about preppy: the bubbly & happy trend!
*Style Menu of the Preppy Trend* 

  • Fabric: Classic, and clean-cut clothes in good fabrics. Try and buy mostly 100% cotton, wool and cashmere.
  • Colors: Wear these clothes in preppy colors like, bright and happy hues of green, pink, light blue, nautical red, white and navy blue.  
  • Patterns: Wear them in preppy patterns such as plaid, stripes, gingham, polka dots, argyle, floral, paisley, nova checks, and tartan. Warning: Don't over do it with too much pink and green.
Which clothes are considered preppy?

Polo shirts and Oxford shirts
Diamond jewelery and pearl necklaces
Patterns such as plaid, stripes, gingham, polka dots, argyle,
Flip Flops
Clean cut dresses
A classy pair of jeans
(skinny are fine, but not too tight. Straight leg are good, flare or bootcut also work well.)
Cardigans in many colors (cheap are fine if you are buying in bulk.)
Classy blouses and such, in silk or other nicer fabrics.
Ballet flats.
Classic high heels.
Avoid flashy watches

The preppy look is basically a neat, well-balanced, put-together look that can be achieved by combining the right colors, patterns, and accessories. It is never trashy, mall-trendy or overdone. Simple, classic, and clean. I hope you enjoyed my post about Preppy: The Bubbly & Happy Trend!  Please feel free to leave a comment below and tell me your thoughts on this trend!
