The Prepster style is a crossover that combines the Ivy League/Collegiate and Hipster looks to create an upscale brand showcase for the Ivy League crowd. With slim-fitting garments and crazy patterns, the Prepster guy’s look puts together form-fitted, brightly-colored polos and cuffed, skinny trousers that flaunt his flamboyant socks and fashion loafers. Pocket squares and bowties are popular accessories. The Prepster gal’s look includes gray tights with high-waisted, short skirts, matching Oxford dress shirts, and patterned merino wool sweaters. Brooks Brothers, Vineyard Vines, Southern Tide, Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, L.L. Bean, J. Crew, Burberry and Boss are brands that rule. Patterns of choice show up in solids, stripes, plaids, gingham checks, argyle, chevrons, and small polka-dots.
