do people forget what real preps are?i dont live in a society that is one big flaw lik ethe united states.real preps are epople like frasier.there is nothing wrong if you are rich and want to be more civilised than those people who would rather go pick up a ho and then get drunk.there is nothing wrong if you like all those clothing brands mentioned.if u like htose clothes its fine.if u lik emainstream music its fine.BUT the underground term for prep are those who,jsu becaus ethey have a higher status in any walk of life specially high school think they can get your crush hate you.and the preps who say that they are individuals let me say something these stereotypes are a more flawed version of nationalities.each have their own customs the basic core but not everyone is on the spot alike. i jsut went to the us recently and u have go tto understand ppl think preps like those displayed in movies are just exaggerated.when i went to the us i asked a prep for assistance and after the wa\y she lloked at me and talked to me i was laughin in her face.
sports team ember,sports shirts,prestigious clothing brands,popular,like parties=not preps

preps=all of the above +making ppls social life a misery,think they have the right to judge things like movies music and people.
Here are some misconsessions with age groups

Middle School kids.
You will rarely find a true prep between these ages. Well, at my school I never did. They thik that Abercrombie, Aeropostale, and Hollister are the true clothing stores for preps. They try and act ditzy so thats what they think what they should act. And, commounly use the word like and OMG! They dont like the classic style they go for What's hot and which one makes me look cute. So basically, if you are a tru prep and you in Middle School. Then, I say good luck for you.

High School.
This is where you'll find more true preps. There are fakes, but more because they might understand the concep a little more then middle school. There isn't as much too say about this group except a true prep:
a.)does not go to the mall stores
b.)uses a classy style not what's new and hot
c.)this is a iffy dont pop the collar
d.)aren't ditzy or bossy
e.)dont make fun of the other social groups
f.)never label themselves
fake prep-LIKE OMG!!! you should the HOLLISTER jeans their hot not old
real prep's response-HOLLISTER is place where true ladies never go

Preps aren't what everyone seems to think on this site, they arent the popular whores at every hs who wear reaveling outfits and shop at AF, hollister and those stores, being preppy(the adjective form) isnt about where you buy you clothes and what you wear, its about how you act and your overall lifestyle

they wear Basic Polos usually bright or classic colors, slacks(khakis, plaids, seersuckers), occaisionally jeans, in the summer cargo shorts and shorts similar to the pants they wear, ribbon belts, for shoes we wear birkenstocks, topsiders, penny loafers, and occaisionally classic type sneakers (ie old tennis shoe type sneakers) ou clothes are usually bought from J. Crew, Vinyard Vines, Lacoste, B.Bros, and if we must shop in any of the mall "trendy party prep" type stores we shop at AE which is the most classic and preppy of those (AF, HCO, Aero)

A prep is always courteuos, kind and respectful, they are the kind of people that grandparents and parents look at and say" hes a fine young man"

a preppy lifestle consists of living in a nice community and contrary to popular belief we dont always live in huge houses and you'll never find us living in homes labled as mcmansions, our homes always have archetectural value and are always tastefully and classicly decorated, in our garge you will typically find a car such and a volvo, vw, audi, bmw and occasionnaly another european made car, we participate un lifelong sports such as crew, golf, tennis, sailing, swimming, and sometimes lacrosse
and most importantly WE GO TO PREP SCHOOLS, day or boarding

What most people have to come to realize is that prep is a lifestyle enjoyed by a fortunate few of us it isnt a clothing style, it includes how we live, how we act and what we do
Older Prep 1: Look at that young man holding the door for that woman.
Older Prep 2: A fine young lad indeed, I wish my daughter would find a man like that

preps are ppl that are usually popular at school and they act all snobby and nasty because they know it and they judge anyone by their looks they will laugh at anyone thats not the same as them and wear tons of makeup and lipgloss. but some preps are nice their is nice preps so u cant just judge them coz their a prep and they usually dont accept u in their clan unless u mock other stereotypes or if u dress up the same as them or have heaps of money and be overly clean
preps: omg like ewwww ferals dont look at me u losers (usually only if theres more then 1 of them)

A male or female who generally attends a private school or attended a private school as a child. Preps typically come from wealthy families, but are not flamboyant with their money. This term origininated in the Northeastern United States. Preps play tennis, golf, lacrosse and field hockey. Preps often attend country clubs and are well-mannered. Despite popular belief, true preps do NOT wear abercrombie, hollister, and american eagle, they wear Polo, lilly pulizter, lacoste and other such brands.
That prep over there in the lilly dress went to Hotchkiss for tennis and is on her way to Princeton. She grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut but she vacations in Nantucket.

Someone that comes here to talk about how they don't wear Abercrombie, don't wear Hollister, live on the east coast, go to good colleges, and don't live in big houses (though they are rich?), and basically talk good about themselves because they are self-centered and insecure and stuck up little brats that have no life except to come online and type a million page definition on 'their kind'.
Person 1: Wow, look at this definition that this prep wrote about herself!
Person 2: Wow, she is such an annoying little bitch with no life, huh?

The popular people in school that think everyone else is jealous of them. They have a 'blond' IQ and no knowledge of anything that matters. They wear fugly clothes that they think everyone else likes. There all clones. There hobbies include flirting with all the other preps they see, spreading false rumors about the people they hate, stealing their parent's credit cards to go to the mall and put their parents in debt, a being heartless bitches. They have no idea what a day's work is and do not know how much a dollar's worth. They have no idea what trust is, and will turn on their friend if they like the same person as they do.
Example 1
Generic Prep 1: Hi Amanda! Look at my new shoes!
Generic Prep 2: Wow, Ashley! There the same shoes you have about 30 pairs of, but these ones look shinier!

Normal girl: She probably bought them with daddy's credit card.

Example 2:
Preppy dude 1: Hey Brad, nice new Hollister shirt!
Preppy dude 2: Thanks, I have a million of these.

Normal dude: Friggen' man whore.

especially those preppy girly girls who takes FOREVER to get ready in the morning just cause they need their hair to be perfect and the way they look

sadly, NO ONE CARES about what you think of yourself

honestly, it's ok to be a little obsessive over yourself, but just don't overdo it

another reason they're preps is that they pick on people who DRESS DIFFERENTLY FROM THEMSELVES

i mean, wtf what made you think you had a fucking chance at making fun of someone else

it's not like you're any better than they are and at least they're not sluts who's like "ew is that dirt in my nails?"

no boy would honestly date preppy girls even if they do they'll eventually BREAK UP WITH THEM because they'll realize how mean they are how sensitive they are

even if boys date those preppies well they're only the ones who're A JERK to even think about taking an interest into those girls

Preps - Is that dirt?
Yes, it is, got a problem?
Preps - Well it's gross.. get it away from me, I don't want that piece of shit on my new skirt!
