What do people mean when they say "preppy" (and I'm not talking about the slutty Abercrombie-type prep that everyone seems to talk about here).....?

Preppy as in boarding schools and summers on nantucket. Preppy as in WASP and old money. As in LL Bean fur moccasins and ribbons in your hair, and flip-flops when it's 10 degrees outside. As in sailing and Topsiders and looking back on your house from your boat and being so, so happy. Preppy as in buying clothes not for the label but for what they look like. Preppy as in collars up and Nantucket Red shorts faded to pink. As in crew, tennis, squash, lacrosse. As in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine. As in Ivy League and prep schools with the word "academy" in their names.

As you can probably tell, I've had a lot of experience with this sort of person...and I suppose I am one...but so what if I summer on the Cape and wear blue seersucker and play tennis? Preppy is not a trend, it's a LIFESTYLE...it can never go out of fashion. There will always be people trying to emulate the preppy clothes and thinking they are preps, but really it's about your background and your education and where you summer. Not everyone who wears Lilly is a prep-- there is certain fashion that preppies usually wear, but that doesn't mean someone can just pop their collar and pretend they went to Groton or Choate.
"Preppy is a lifestyle, not a clothing style," Bitsy sighed as she observed the West Coast girls trying to pull off Reds. Her friend Buffy nodded before they resumed their tennis game.

A beautiful town, probably the MOST beautiful town in all of the luxurious Fairfield County. Its charming Main Street is lined with a plethora of clothing boutiques, restaurants of fine dining, pricey jewelry stores, glamorous flower shops, expensive hair salons, expensive toy stores, and fine wine shops. If you cannot already tell, this town and ALL of it's people (even the Ridgefield "poor") are extremely wealthy in comparison with the rest of the country as well as CT’s seven other counties. This wealth is evident everywhere you look. It is especially evident in the houses as well as in the people. Many of the houses are old colonial homes or either newly built custom-designed multi-million dollar mansions. The people also carry around an air of pretension, though a majority of Ridgefield’s residents are welcoming. Since the children have a lot of money (both from their parents and jobs they are forced to get to learn responsibility) they are able to afford pricey drugs such as heroin and cocaine, as well as a wide assortment of alcoholic beverages. Though this is a problem, as Fairfield County is the nation’s county with the highest drug and alcohol consumption, it can be overlooked by the great achievements made by the town’s students. Some achievements are that a good percentage of the high school seniors each year are accepted and sent off to Ivy League schools, anything lower than a 1300 on the SATs is considered terrible, and many state championships are won, especially in Soccer, Hockey, Lacrosse, Cross-country and skiing. But this is obviously because the parents can afford expensive private tutors for both academics and athletics. Oh and every next person drives a Jeep, it's a fact of life!
