Preppy Chic

Who says preppy style has to be all top siders and Polo?  There is a new wave of preppies taking the stage this summer.  The "Nouveau preppies" embrace the classics and add their own spin.  According to InStyle,
"Nouveau preppy is sporty, upbeat, and--thank goodness--a little sexier than what Winky or Muffy would wear.  It's perfect for weekends, whether you summer in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, or Bayside, Queens, or the San Francisco Bay Area.  Inspried by waht some wear to 'the club', these togs definitely push the 'house rules'"

Mix and match traditional masculine styles with ultra girly ones, like a button down oxford over a bikini. Another nouveau look, take one traditionally preppy element and pair it with something a little more funky, like a tennis dress with a color-block platform sandal.  When it comes to color go bright or go home, and play around with fit, boyfriend chinos have a chic-slouchiness.
