Style Guide: The Preppy Look

Hey everyone, so I was thinking it would be cool to do a series of style guides on different types of looks. I chose preppy for the first installment because, I’ll admit I’m a bit preppy myself. I’ve always been interested in the whole lifestyle that goes along with the look, especially in the past. For example, Jackie Kennedy on vacation with her children, dressed in a crisp button down shirt.

So, here’s some photos for inspiration…

Blair Waldorf and Serena Van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl
