Prep Style – Today’s Classics

Nostalgists for authentic ‘80s trends swoon over plaid worn with heavy stockings, headbands and oversized sweaters. Coming off a year when emojis starred in their own movie, loud prints and monograms, symbols of prep style, seems quaint.

Elements of a preppy’s life.

 

The 1980’s saw the rise of spiked hair, slashed shirts and shoulder pads but there was also a sophisticated side to the decade, embodied in preppies, a word originating from prep school.

Pearls, plaid and a monogrammed jewelry case from Marley Lilly.

 

Traditional pieces and prints, such as tote bags, plaids and aviators, still hold today and are available from such venerable companies as L.L. Bean to newer outfitters like Smathers & Branson. Here, we round up classic prep pieces that endure.

Preppy palettes transition from navy and hunter green to bright pastels.
