A prep is not a bitch, slut or ditz. If you are one of these, its not because you are a prep, its because thats just your personality. A prep does not hate other people because they are different, but because they hate preps. It's not our fault we like to dress nice in bright colors and that were always happy. A true prep doesn't shop at Abercrombie or Hollister, but wears Seven for All Mankind, Lacoste, and Juicy. Normally a prep is smart, because they go to good colleges. Now tell me, is it really their fault theyre parents have good jobs and make good money? No! You would dress well if your parents had the money for it. By the way we dont say oh my god and like in every sentence. Stop stereotyping and look.
Girl 1:A prep dresses well and has a good attitude towards life.
Girl 2:Stop flattering yourself!

The bitches that talk behind your back, yet are very genial when in close contact with you. They often wear Aberzombie & Bitch, American Eagle, AERO, and my least favorite because it makes me look like a motherfucking traffic cone, Hollister. They usually are very ignorant, they spend $120 on ripped jeans, while you can go to walmart and buy ok jeans and fuck them up yourself. They usually will be the people talking shit about their 25 best friends behind their backs. They sometimes are in advanced/gifted classes yet most of them lack a brain or they have one and are unable to use it.

There seems to be a misconception on this post as to what prep is. A prep is someone who prides themselves in academic and athletic achievements. A prep has usually attended a prep school or is now attending a prestigious college. A prep is a young adult that appreciates tradition. A prep needs no further explaination as to what exeter or andover means/are? maybe even knows people there. A prep is usually simple/humble with no need to show off there wealth, because rich does not mean prep. A prep has good mannors.
.....stereotypes
Fashion-jcrew, brooks brothers, ll bean, vineyard yines, polo, lilly, etc.....polos, birks, oxfords, mandres...(ABERCROMBIE AND AE ARE NOT PREP)
Automobiles- volvo wagon, jeep, old benz or bmw, etc...
Vacation Hot Spots- Cape Cod, Colorado, Vermont, the Vineyard, Nantucket, etc...
Pass Times- sailing, skiing, lacrosse, tennis, golf, frisbee, partys...
Music- phish, dead, widespread panic, jack johnson, ben harpers, keller williams, etc...

PROUD TO BE A PREP.

"I wear a shirt and tie everyday to school. Sail on the weekends. Took state in lacroose. Partied on thursday night. Drove a saab. Spent the summer in vermont and roadtripping to music fests. In the fall I will be attending Brown." proud to fall in with the preps.

Preps are generally from a WASP family who tend to be from upper middle class to upper class. They attend preparatory schools on the east coast and are very involved in various activities, including: sailing, rowing, tennis, badminton, lacrosse, field hockey, golf, football and rugby.

Their families usually come from a line of prep families, however new money families are sometimes the exception. Prep families are never flamboyant about their wealth and would much rather buy a very classic architecturally stunning home than an unattractive monster home. Their parents tend to drive cars of good quality such as BMW's and Mercedes Benz but not cars such as Hummers which are very conspicuous.

Their parents either have inherited old money or have very respectable jobs, such as: lawyers, real estate developers, business entrepreneurs, doctors and various different investors.

Their upbringing is very important to the prep lifestyle, they are taught to treat people kindly and with respect unlike common the common prep stereotype which is portrayed in movies such as movies Mean Girls and although it is a very big hit amongst young preps it does not at all represent the true prep lifestyle. Their parents want the best education for their children which is why they end up sending them to prestigious private schools and universities. They tend to belong to various country clubs and/or yacht clubs. Prep families vacation quite a bit to places such as Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard or other exclusives places.

Preps have a very defined style and their clothes are usually in the pastel pallet of colors. They wear brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, Lilly Pulitzer, The North Face and Vineyard Vines. A girls wardrobe consists of polos (which are worn with the collar popped up), Lilly skirts, cardigans and oxfords. A guys wardrobe consists of polos (which are worn with the collar popped up as well)seersucker shorts and khakis.

Overall a real prep is not what most people consider one to be (slutty, mean and backstabbing bitches) but more so people that are born into the preppy lifestyle.

Winchester and Richard looked very preppy golfing in their Lacoste and Ralph Lauren polos.

What people think of when they hear prep-
snobby person who wears exclusively Coach, abercrombie and fitch, and hollister. Applies lipgloss 3253 tpms (times per millisecond) Snubs goths, losers, and emos. Sluts who wear mini skirts all the time.

What a true prep is.
well-educated, fairly affluent young people who are known for their neat, traditional, often expensive clothing style. Wears Polo, Lacoste, J.Crew, Lilly, DKNY, and Juicy Couture. A prep doesn't wear much makeup. A prep is rich because of money inherited from a long line of wealth. Watch Laguna beach and see true preps. Preps don't snub goths, losers, or emos. Preps just stick to their own group and have their own world.

A real prep doesn't wear American Eagle, Hollister, or Aeropostale. A real prep doesn't touch Abercrombie (it's tasteless garbage and nobody with class would wear shirts with slogans). Preppy is Polo, Lacoste, Burberry, Lilly Pulitzer, pearls, loafers, popped collars, plaid, madras, crewneck sweaters with ponies/palm trees/etc on them. Preppy is huge sunglasses, anything excessive, expensive, or lavish. Preps belong to country clubs, play sports with racquets, spend summers on the Vineyard, at the Hamptons, or in Nantucket, and wouldn't be caught dead cheerleading. And one more thing - money. Old or new, but preferably old.
"I can't believe that people think that any slutty high school girl not wearing black nail polish is preppy! Preps have class."

A prep is traditionally someone who comes from a WASP family living in New England, but the definition has expanded. A prep can now be used to describe anyone from a wealthy, New England family, who most likely participates in lacrosse, sailing, rugby, crew, field hockey, ice hockey, polo, and other like minded sports. It is a requisite for both boys and girls to be able to sail and play lacrosse to some extent. They value intelligence, sociability, physical attractiveness, and wealth.

A true prep DOES NOT wear Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, American Eagle, Juicy Couture, and other brands, as those are considered Jap brands, and although they have become in modern slang "preppy", are not, and should be called "jappy". They do wear Polo Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, Brooks Brothers, J. Crew, Hermes, and other, more conservative brands. Both plaid and Madras are very popular in the 2007-2008 year.

Family tolerance for drinking alcohol is surprisingly high, and as they often have large amounts of wines, rum, vodka, vermouth, scotch, and other expensive liquors in their houses, underage drinking often starts as young as 15. Drug use however, is expressively forbidden even within the most lax families, and such use is seriously punished.

While most people think that preps hate goths, skaters, and other stereotypes, they do not, but rather loathe Japs, who consider themselves preps, even though they just degrade the term.
Prep 1: Look at that Jap.

Prep 2: Wow, she thinks she's preppy just because she wears Abercrombie & Fitch and Couture.

Prep 1: She's such poser.

Prep 2: She thinks she's so preppy but shes so jappy.

One who cares about personal appearance, shops at nice stores, and is generally more image-conscience then others. The term prep has been identified with bitches and sluts, which is a stereotype and is rarely true.

Originally derived from preparatory schools, prep has turned into a term people use to classify a certain group of people who act and dress a certain way. This does not mean that all preps are the same or that they are all bad or good.

Prep seems to be used as a derogatory term, when really it is just another name for a clique or group of people. I think of prep as either a meaningless term or a positive one.
Person One: Did you see that slut face bitch? She is such a prep!
Person Two: Maybe if you took the time to get to know her you wouldn't think of preps in such a negative way :)
