The breeze is blowing while leaves gently kiss the surface of the concrete sidewalk as they come down. We all know this time of year. FALL! And with this season comes with the famous pumpkin spice latte, sweaters, and a billion jillion girls wearing riding boots.
Anyways welcome to the Preppy Insider and its first blog post. I will be showing you the latest trends that are considered “preppy” according to each season on this blog. But first what does having a preppy style even mean? To me being preppy is being modern but keeping iconic, classy elements incorporated in your everyday outfits. Anyone can be preppy, it is not limited to how much money you have or your family background as it seems to be in Gossip Girl. As long as you have a sweater, jeans, a pair of riding boots and a smile on your face you can dress preppy.
Now for the basic essentials I think every prep should have.
1.) SWEATERS! SWEATERS! AND DID I SAY SWEATERS?
Sweaters will be your best friend to the preppy world. Pair it with some jeans or a pair of leggings and you already look classy. Bold colors especially will capture anyone’s eye. Pair it with any necklace and you are ready to hit the road.
2.) BOOTS are BOOTIFUL
From riding boots to ankle boots to even rainboots, boots overall will allow your outfit to stand out. Paired with cute socks or worn with dresses, boots will never be out of style to the prep. They are the main shoewear in the colder weather.
3) LOOKING SO PLAID
Flannels or plaid long-sleeve shirts are a symbol of the crisp autumn mornings. Darker colors paired with a collar shirt underneath or a cardigan over it make it even more preppy and ties the whole look together.
4) PULLOVER Lovers
A huge favorite for preppy lovers are pullovers in the colder times. Paired with leggings, riding boots, it is simple, but iconic. Whether it is a pullover from Vineyard Vines or from Old Navy you will never get tired of the simplicity of a one color jacket. It is a bonus as well because you can wear it all day and it still looks like a part of your outfit and you never have to take it off. Win-Win!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Stay tune for even more! xoxo- The Preppy Insider
