Reinventing the Preppy Look

The fashion world is abuzz with the resurgence of the preppy look. From the runways of New York to the chic streets of Paris, everyone is embracing this timeless trend, and your local Discovery Shop can be your secret to nailing it.


The Timeless Appeal of Preppy Fashion

Unlike fleeting trends, the preppy look is anchored in timeless classics. The style exudes sophistication, comfort, and an understated elegance. 


Cardigans, tweed blazers, collared tops, pleated shorts, a-line skirts, chinos or cable knit sweaters, popped collars, tennis club graphic sweatshirts, pleated skirts, and sweaters draped over your shoulders are all part of this enduring aesthetic.


Creating the Preppy Look with Discovery Shop Finds

Now, how can you recreate this look at your local Discovery Shop? Let's break it down:

1. Blazers and Cardigans: Start by hunting for blazers and cardigans. Tweed and wool options are perfect for winter, while a lightweight cotton blazer can be your summer staple. Don't shy away from colors or patterns – they add a modern twist to your preppy ensemble.

2. Collared Tops and Polo Shirts: These are the backbone of any preppy wardrobe. Look for classic white button-downs, polo shirts, and tops with unique collars.

3. Bottoms: From A-line skirts to chinos and sailor shorts, there's a range of options. For an edgy touch, go for pleated skirts in bold colors or patterns.

4. Accessories: Finish your look with accessories like boat shoes and loafers. Also, keep an eye out for themed scarves, belts, and vintage jewelry that can add a personal touch to your outfit.

Aside from the thrill of finding unique pieces, shopping at Discovery Shop also means you're making a sustainable choice. By giving a second life to pre-loved items, you're not only saving money but also helping reduce the impact of fast fashion on our environment.
