Modern Ways to Channel Your Inner Prep

We’re the queens of preppy. But sometimes even our favorite staples–khakis, button-downs and polo shirts–need a refresh. Just in time for spring, please welcome the new class of preppy. Here are nine looks that make an oldie but a goodie totally new again.

UNEXPECTED MONOGRAMS

Obviously, monograms are a preppy staple, but choose to personalize something less obvious than your tote, like a cool denim jacket you can throw on over anything.

WHITE SNEAKERS

Let us count the ways we love white sneaks: They go with everything, they’re comfortable and they pair well with shorter hemlines.

LOW HEELS

There’s just something so elegant about low heels. Oh, and they’re also so much more comfortable to walk around in.

A MINI BAG

Structured, ladylike and in a perfectly preppy pink.

A PLEATED SKIRT

The flattering, on-trend silhouette can be dressed up (with low heels) or down (with your new monogrammed denim jacket and white sneaks).

OVERSIZED GLASSES

Channel your inner Jackie O.
