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