Trending Now: Preppy Chic

The fall 2019 runway saw many versions of preppy chic. Plaids, houndstooth, window pane and argyle.

I remember my first encounter with preppy style. It was in the early 90s when I was attending the Art Institute for a degree in Fashion Marketing. (At that time fashion magazines were loaded with photos of Super Models wearing tartan plaids and window pane prints. And I remember this well because their glossies were wallpapering my bedroom!!)

I’d never known anyone who embraced preppy style. (This wasn’t my crowd.) Until I met a girl in class who wore long flowing skirts over calf length boots with turtleneck sweaters or sweaters layered over blouses. I admired her individuality.

Although the way we wear preppy chic today may appear differently, the aesthetic remains the same.

Below are some eye candy from the fall runways to inspire you.
