Preppy fashion style of the elite

The preppy style on stage on Autumn-Winter this year has many new variations. Cardigan, blazer jacket, plaid skirt legs perfect choice for days on Autumn.

Preppy style originated in the early 20th century when girls in the wealthiest families in American private schools attended preparatory classes – “preparatory school” before entering university. The gentleness, elegance and high applicability make this style always popular. The famous people with Preppy style can mention the classic fashion icon Audrey Hepburn, Princess Kate Middleton, singer Taylor Swift …

Fashion style associated with the elite

Beginning in the 20s, it was not until the 1950s that preppy entered the most flourishing period. The reason is because at this time, Western women also go to school like men, which promotes economic development and the media become more popular.

Wealthy families buy only the best for their children, so rich children now usually only wear clothes from the most famous brands. Many middle and high-end fashion houses like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, J Crew and Celine become more popular thanks to Preppy style.

The 2000s were the heyday of drama. In it, the classic movie Gossip Girl tells the story of the rich lady living in Manhattan, New York brought this style closer to the audience.

Preppy style in modern breath

The Fall-Winter catwalk this year saw the return of the bourgeois style – derived from the French “bourgeoisie”, meaning the middle class. This style has many similarities with Preppy. That is why Bourgeois is sometimes called “preppy style of France”. The designs of fashion houses such as Summerrmes, Burberry, Tods and most notably Celine in the 70s are preppy.
