Do you adore Kate Spade? Does plaid and polka dots make you swoon? If so then you are probably a classic preppy kind of girl! Even though I definitely consider myself a classic vintage, I have at least one foot firmly planted in classic preppy, especially when it comes to fall fashion. There just something so chic about pea coats, herringbone, and crisp button down shirts- all hallmarks of classic preppy.
As I have mentioned before, because all six categories of the classic woman are distilled from one main idea of classic style, there is a lot of overlap between styles. For example the above outfits could have been in the modern category because they feature the skinny jean and modern items. They could also be put in the classic simple category because these are very basic pieces. But I have put them in the classic preppy group specifically because of how they are styled. Classic prep is tailored, flattering, and usually sticks to solids, stripes, plaids, polka dots, and the occasional herringbone. I believe all of the above outfits are perfect for a stay at home mother who wants to look chic and be comfortable at the same time.
Classic preppy can also look vintage depending on how you wear it. The outfit featured above could have just as easily been put in the classic vintage category, but I believe fits better here because a sweater set is very preppy, as are nubby pencil skirts and a button down shirt, especially when worn all together.
If you love classic preppy as much as I do then you should be thrilled with the new fall clothing flooding the stores this season. Continue to scroll through to see some great wardrobe choices, including a few that I purchased for my own collection.
