Prep's dont have to come from old money or go to private schools or academy's like they usually do. Preps usually vacation on Nantucket Island, Martha's Vineyard, The Cape, Hamptons, Delray, and Maine. Prep's vacation homes are most likely on the east coast vacationing at spots such as VT to go skiing otherwise houses are at the beach.
Prep's don't buy stuff at malls, they usually stick to going to small store's maybe in Greenwich or New Caanan. If you wear american eagle, abercrombie and fitch, Hollister, or any of the "trendy and in" clothing stores you are not a prep.The only time you will see a prep shopping at stores such as american eagle is when they aren't going to be going to Murray's for a while and they need another pair of nantucket reds. True prep's shop at Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Vinyard Vines, Lilly pulitzer, Petit Bateau, north face, barbour,birkenstocks, CK Bradley, Brooke Brothers, J. Crew, eliza b, Patagonia, L.L. Bean for their totebags which almost every prep owns. Prep's carry around their school stuff in tote bags from L.L. bean, vineyard vines, long champ, herve chapelier, and maybe a vera bradley tote. Prep's never wear short skirts or shorts. We wear patterns such as madras and seersucker, We wear khakis and jeans made by blue cult or seven but not limited to these brands. We wear usually wear light colors but tend to wear brighter ones towards the summertime.
Prep's wear very classical jewlery such as pearls and diamond studs, we wear tiffany's jewlery, such as the beaded sterling silver bracelet, we don't usually go for the most popular style's at tiffany's like the sterling silver tiffany's bracelet and necklace that advertise tiffanys on it we usually go for the initial necklace that has your first inital letter or even the starfish necklace that they have there anything cute and simple but never tacky.
