The fashion that is considered prep fluctuates in pre-teens and younger teens who often obsess over name brands such as hollister and abercombie. The stores have prep inspired clothing BUT the clothing items that have the store's name across are NOT preppy. They are under a different class that has not been created yet.
As many teens get older the style begins to become more personalized and less traditional. Often girls will wear an preppy item with an edgier item, which creates a balanced outfit that is becoming very popular. This modernized and edgier prep can be called chic. Preppy Guys on the other hand wear polos, button ups, khakis, and pastels. They can mix a preppy shirt with jeans to make it less country-club like. Prep guys care about their appearance and make their outfits neat and some may be more preppy by wearing scarves and pea coats.
Preppy is conservative not slutty so ripped jeans and tight shirts are NOT preppy. Preps are not obsessed with pink and many are intelligent. =]
NOT hollister shirts, or slutty items. Instead it is Conservative.
Sweater/Polo + Khaki = "Preppy"
Tight low cut shirts + Short Skirts = "Trashy" NOT "Preppy"

Most preps belong to caucasian suburban families often higher in their social classes. They are often intensely concerned about their social status and do all in their power as to keep with the latest fashions, thus producing the inability to develop any diverse personality. They are often found mingling amoung their ilk at schools and enjoy the local country clubs and ridiculing those whom they deem inferior (those with a personality, those of poorer families and virtually any who do not conform to their social ideals.
Preps oppose emos and ghettos although seem to have some strange mutual understanding for the drug-abusing cliques at high school. It is assumed their lack of hostility is due to the drug clique's supplying the preps' drug habits.

A prep is somebody who goes to a prep school. Often wearing pastel colors and polos. They play sports like lacrosse, hockey, and squash. Generally overuse terms such as "chill" "legit" "bro" and "unreal"But does this really make them so terrible? So what if wear a ribbon in my hair? That doesn't mean I think I am so much better than everybody else. A common misconception is that all preps are brainwashed by the media. This is blatantly untrue. Preps don't all listen to the same music, don't tYpE lYk th!s, and don't just hate anyone who is different.
Everybody on this site likes to describe the typical prep stereotype, which is generally only seen in movies. Maybe if you actually took the time to talk to a prep, you would realize this. All you are doing is building false stereotypes
