School is back in session and back in fashion. Last year, we witnessed the preppy style slowly become a trend again. Now, it is in full swing as we are fresh into autumn and everyone seems to channeling what is being called “preppy cool”. When we think of “preppy”, we think of school uniforms like khakis and pleated skirts along with varsity jackets, polo shirts, sweater vests, loafers, and lots of plaids. The trend has always been connected to prestigious educational institutions and the lifestyles and status symbols they encompass including playing certain sports and belonging to select clubs and other extracurriculars. We can thank big fashion brands such as Ralph Lauren for cultivating the trend and giving it a home in the fashion industry. Now, we see many brands taking in the trend by preserving its roots and keeping it “cool” for contemporary fashion.
