Are you a fan of shows like “Gossip Girl” or would love to get your hands on Cher Horowitz’s wardrobe from “Clueless?”

In that case, you probably have a desire to dress like a preppy girl. 

I was never preppy when I was still in school. I was the opposite, wearing funky patterns and t-shirts in middle school. But I’d be lying if I said I never had a bit of a desire to channel some of the iconic preppy Upper East Side girls I’d see on my television.

You don’t have to come from old money or live in a big city to dress like a preppy person. You can easily channel preppy icons without transforming your entire lifestyle. 

If you want to try out some preppy outfits this year, here are some ideas for you!

A button-down shirt and skinny jeans

This is one of the easiest ways to channel a preppy girl. This a great outfit for casual Friday that will still make you feel sophisticated and bougie. Tuck your button-down into your skinny jeans and finish the look with some tall riding-style boots or trendy loafers. 

Sweater vest and trousers

Few things scream ‘preppy’ more than a great sweater vest. To feel like a preppy icon while staying on trend, wear a t-shirt or long sleeve under your sweater vest and pair it with great wide-leg trousers.
