A prep is one of very higher middle class or high class. Usually attending private school or east coast boarding school living in some of the richest neighborhoods in the united states. Although those living in suburban areas think they are "preps" because they shop at aeropostale
, abercrombie & fitch
, old navy
and american eagle
. Believe me true preps don't shop there. Although they may own some clothing preps usually shop at polo
, lily pullitzer
and so on, only those of higher classes would be able to afford such things. They wear pearls, ribbons, jewelery from tiffany's, plaid, designer purses. Traveling during the summer to nantucket, martha's vineyard...or around the world to different countries.Plays lacrosse, field hockey, crew team, tennis. And their parents pretty much make $250,000 + driving some of the most expensive cars around.
