How To Dress...Preppy Cool

Ever wanted to know what it would be like to go to a private school and wear the same outfit day after day? With these tips, you can look perfectly preppy without forking over the money for prep school.
  1. Preppy CoolStick with one color scheme... If you like navy, stick with navy, and other coordinating blues. Or go for classic red, or forest green. Neutrals, like khaki and grey are always classic too.
  2. ...But mix it up with a pop of color! You don't want basic blue to look blah, so add in a touch of pink, or maybe aqua. Same goes for other colors (with red, try orange or yellow if you're really brave...with green, red is best).
  3. Fit is essential. Make sure everything you're wearing is perfectly tailored to flatter your frame. So take that blazer to the tailor shop if you must, and don't be afraid to stray from your usual size to get something that works.
This is my dream 'prep school' outfit--if only real uniforms would be this cool!
