Fashion Character #5. The Preppy
“…With her relaxed, clean-cut style, the preppy is the casual younger sister of the classic. It is an easy timeless look, identified by the bright colours and characteristic mix of Sloan with American campus style…”
“…Being a traditional girl at heart, the preppy favours familiar country-orientated classics for town life, sharpened with an occasional urban accessory to suit her job, lifestyle and status…”
“…Key pieces are well cut jeans, classic Oxford shirts, mansize knitwear, sweatshirts and the ubiquitous college loafers…”
- Kate Hogg, author of Vogue’s Even More Dash Than Cash, 1989.
