Southern Preppy Clothing: Preppy style is so much more than a fashion trend. It can't be found solely in preppy clothing brands because Southern preppy style is an attitude, a mindset, and a way of life. Valuing tradition and class, the Southern preppy look is well-groomed, well-dressed, and classic.
Many of today's fashion styles can be worn in a way that fits this classic preppy clothing look. Many brands including Sperry Top-Sider Shoes and Southern Shirt Company are easily worn in a preppy style, but it's all about how you wear the clothes that truly makes them Southern preppy clothing.
When putting together a preppy style outfit, nautical fashions are usually a good start. For men, a solid-colored polo shirt paired with men's flat front shorts (or club shorts) and Sperrys can easily achieve this prep look.
For women, the options are nearly limitless, but typically a classic fashion top (a cute bow-back top, perhaps?) with a Pink Pewter headband and colored Flying Monkey Jeans go a long way toward achieving the Southern prep look. Pastel seersucker preppy dresses, monogram necklaces, flowy scarves, pointed toe heels and bangle bracelets could also be styled as preppy clothing. The key is really to keep your look clean, wearing bold yet classy accessories, and embracing fashion that is delicate, feminine, and classic. Preppy womens clothes have a fairly broad definition.
While so many different clothes can be worn to achieve the prep look, to truly embrace the style of preppy Southern living, you must also embrace the South's tradition and class. Click above to shop Preppy Clothes for Men and Preppy Clothes for Women.
