Tips For Styling A Preppy
Rugby Shirt
Mom Jeans
It might seem like a basic fit, but a long-sleeved rugby shirt paired with your favorite mom jeans is super versatile. You can really elevate the rest of the look with preppy loafers, cute socks, and a tote bag, or go the sporty route with a baseball cap and chunky sneakers.
Go Distressed
By adding a distressed pair of denim shorts, you can instantly transform your outfit from preppy to boho chic. The bohemian style is all about choosing the right accessories, so grab your rancher hat and ankle boots, and you're ready to hit Coachella.
Try A Two-Piece
A preppy rugby two-piece set like the one in this photo is totally comfortable, and it looks like you really put some thought into the look, even when it took you literally two seconds to toss it on. And like with any two-piece set, you can wear the top on its own.
Embrace Overalls
If you don't already own a pair of overalls, this is your sign to get some ASAP. Even though overalls and rugby shirts seem like a casual fit, you can absolutely dress it up; chuck on a pair of Converse for the daytime, then throw on some heels for drinks after work.
Take It To The Skate Park
Just because it's a rugby shirt doesn't mean the look has to be preppy. To pull off this sk8r girl vibe, you'll need your skinniest jeans (sorry, Gen Z) and your high tops — another quick tip: to avoid looking too preppy, skip the stripes, and stick with solid colors instead.
