Many people tie preps with the word slut and other insults but the true prep fashion is inspired by school uniforms, conservative sport wear, and other similar foundations. The basic prep will wear a polo and khaki pants which is not slutty. You could think of this fashion as the kind of clothes accepted in a country club, which requires conservative clothing.

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. =]
Polos, Khakis, Pastel colors, Sweaters, Bermuda shorts.
NOT hollister shirts, or slutty items. Instead it is Conservative.

Sweater/Polo + Khaki = "Preppy"
Tight low cut shirts + Short Skirts = "Trashy" NOT "Preppy"

A group of teenage girls who think they are superior to all the others. Most of them are very rich, or should I say they're parents are. They usually wear things from Abercrombie and Fitch, American Eagle and other "preppily popular" clothing stores. They're accessories (sunglasses, purses..) come from expensive designer brands, such as Prada, Armani, etc.

Alot of preps don't care about school (most can afford to go to private schools). All they need is their clique, their usually prep/jock boyfriend, and the ability to go partying until 3 am.

The more "smarter" preps are nicer to people outside group, and are actually getting good grades and have talent for something.

Preps usually listen to pop, or anything popular (in their group). They watch those "teenage shows" such as The O.C. Many of them are against people who don't dress or act like them. Some of the nicer ones can tolerate punks, goths, etc. Gossiping is a favorite pastime.

-Disclaimed's Opinion :D-
I'm not exactly friends with many preps, but some, very few are actually tolerable. I hate cliques, they are retarded. Also, the clothing stores they shop at are extremely overrated, so I wouldn't step foot in one.
Conversation between 2 Preps ;)

Prep Girl 1: OMG!! Hey Krissy, like, my daddy got me a new camera!! My old was that I got like a month ago is sooo out!!

Prep Girl 2: You are like, so lucky! MY daddy bought me this cuute Marc Jacobs purse!!

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.

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.

Preps are snobs,sluts, have school spirit,posers and make fun of anyone who is not like them or don't worship them. They don't like any particular group but their own. And if you don't wear the same brand of clothes as them then they definetley think your a loser. Preps wear tight shirts, mini skirts, tight pants okay pretty much anything that is revealing. If someone dresses like that and they are not a prep then a prep calls them a slut. Which is weird any way you look at it. Preps aren't known to be very open minded at all. They kiss up to you when adults are around like you guys are best buds. They brag about how they get new things everyday. Or how they want to be models or actors. But mostly they aren't going to amount to anyone because they smoke,get high, and drink. They think they can get any guy/girl(which isn't true) They think will have their looks forever(which is definetly not true)They think everyone idolizes them and want to be like them and they think people are jealous. No one is jealous and I don't know how preps came up with that one MAYBE to ease the pain of being a FUCKIN small MINDED IDIOT!!!No one likes preps because they act like they are all that and have bad attitudes and judge people by the clothing they wear.No one feels sorry for a prep when their made fun of because plainly some really do deserve it. So until preps change their attitudes about people's appearance then I don't think anyone will care about their fucking retarded asses.
(At the mall with family and Prep comes up)

PREP:HI AMY HOW ARE YOU DOING?
AMY:OH HI NOT TO GOOD ONCE YOU WALKED OVER HERE BITCH. WHY DON'T YOU GO BACK OVER THERE WITH YOUR SKANKY ASS FRIENDS? BUH BYE

PARENT: ALEX HERE WAS JUST TRYING TO START A NICE CONVERSATION AND YOU INSULT HER NOW APOLOGIZE.

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.

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.
