Although many fashion fads have come and gone, the preppy look has always remained in style. Throughout the years, preppy has gone from pearls and Lily Pulitzer-esque looks to more classic yet defined fashions. In fact, I spotted this Fashionista sporting a new and improved preppy style. With her classic look, this Fashionista’s preppy outfit made her look polished yet defined as she wore her fun sparkles and patterns.

KK: I would describe my style as classic and preppy. I like bright colors that are easy to mix with patterns. They keep me happy!
CF: Where do you go to buy items that fit your style?
KK: I find things that fit my style in stores, like J.Crew, Gap and other places that have an updated version of basic clothing.
CF: What would you add to your current outfit in order to take it to the next level?
KK: To this outfit, I would add some sparkly nail polish to tie all of my shimmer together. I wouldn’t add any other pieces because I would not want to take away from my patterned pants and necklace.
How To: Check out J.Crew or other preppy-inspired stores to achieve a similar look as this Fashionista’s. Her outfit is the perfect way to look presentable for class or even a day out with friends. For the colder days, throw on a heavier coat and you will be good to go.
