They are the downfall of society, as many teens and young adults are preps. They dress like country club members, listin to the "punk-pop" music like Good Charlotte and Simple Plan, and anything that is mainstream, and are basically told what to do by other peers. The individuality of these people are lost. Preps are very prone to being told what to wear (such as AE, AF, and Aero), what to listin to ("Punk" music, anything mainstream), and what to think (is this cool, is that bad). This is the downfall of our society. In the end, preps are fuckz0rz.

Prep now a days is a place on the school hierarchy pyramid.

(highschool heirarchy, in no correct order.)
Preps/jocks= the popular cook kids.
chavs/gangstas= the ones who fail out. or drop out.
bitches/hoes=the ones no one likes.
Prep- oh em geee ! *stupid high pitched bark./giggle.* shutcho face you little skank.

Preppy is not just a clothing style, but a way of life. It's about your background and education, not just how you dress. There is a certain fashion that preppies usually wear, but that doesn't mean someone can just pop their collar and pretend they went to Choate or Exeter.
Girl 1: OMG! I love how those girls put on a old navy polo & call themselves prep.
Girl 2: I know right, they probably reside in compton. It's all about Ralph Lauren!

Prep can be defined in many way, this one will highlight the types of preps most commonly found in Canada.
A prep can be a boy or a girl, of any age. A young prep can be detected if they play sports like hockey, or if they are a girl and do horse jumping or singing.
A teenage prep is the most distinguishable kind. They often wear popular clothings brands such as American Eagle (at the cheaper end of the prep scale), Hollister, Abercrombie and Fitch, J. Lindeberg, Pusch, French Connection, TNA, Lululemon, Lacoste, Diesel. There are many other preppy brands.
A prep is most commonly white or brown. How to recognize a prep.
A male prep will likely have spiked hair with frosted tips. He may be wearing sunglasses. He will likely have on a polo shirt, with some kind of nice brand. His appearance will be well defined by his belt buckle, which will liked say something like DIESEL or FCUK. If he is daring, it may say Bacardi. His jeans will be light jeans. His shoes will be expensive. Probably white. A prep will not wear skateboarding shoes, instead they will wear actual running shoes, to fool you into thinking they are actually active. A prep in a picture will likely be holding a bottle of their parents alcohol, but they will probably not dare to drink it. They also may be pretending to smoke marijuana, but really they're just rolling some of mom's oregano.
A female prep is quite distinguishable too. She will likely be wearing sunglasses with white rims, they will be oversized. She will likely have her nose pierced, with a cute little baby pink or blue stud in it. Never a ring though. Her hair will be straightened, definitely. It will likely be blonde, or light brown with blonde streaks. She may have her hair up, with her bangs tied back in the popular bubble formation. If a prep is not wearing her signature brand shirts, she may be wearing a solid colored skanky top. She will wear lightwashed jeans, flaring at the bottom. She can wear almost any kind of shoes, quite often some stylish boots.

Prep girl: Oh my god, did you see those new mitts at Abercrombie? Drool! Only like, 40 dollars, whatevs, daddy will buy them.
Normal girl: No. I didn't. And I don't care to.
Prep girl: Oh my god, like, you're crazy. LOL.

Well. For one thing, not all "preps" are conceited, snooty, or what ever you call them. But, some are. Some people think that "preps" are people who wear Hollister, A&F, or AE just to look "cool" and be in style. The truth is, just some people like that type of clothing. I do. But, I also support other companies like Hot Topic, and smaller companies. And, some people are right. Certain people who have parents with less paying jobs HATE stores like the ones I listed above. I get their point. But, it doesn't really make sense to make fun of something just to make YOURSELF feel better. That is just resorting to the ways of the actual people who ARE snooty, and shop at "preppy" stores. Oh, and btw: People who HATE Hollister, A&F, AE, and other stuff, please don't hate me. I'm just speaking... typing my mind. :P Thanks.

PS: Ugghh. I REALLY hope this won't start anything.

PPS: I DO hate something. Labels. So umm... yeah. Thats it. :)
Person 1: Ugghh. I hate Hollister.
Person 2: Why?
Person 1: Its too expensive, ripped, and preppy.
Person 2: So, I like that style, and its comfortable.
Person 1: Well... good for you.
Person 2: Yep. :)
Person 1: I like Hot Topic!
Person 2: Oh, so do I.
Person 1: Awesome. Maybe you're not a total snob...
Person 2: Thanks?
Person 1: Welcome!

Preps are mostly a broad classification of people who in most cases dress in what can be called "trendy" styles. Hollister co. Abercrombie and Fitch and other such lifestyle stores are usually choice for these people. They are mostly and unfairly stereotyped as being rude, stupid and shallow. Some are, but as usuall most people seem to be bitter or jealous towards them, or else they wouldn't speak of them in such low regard. The word prep has been so skewed in defintiion interpretation that it has mainly been associated with wealthy upper class teens and adults. Though untrue these people are mosty often unfairly judged. By other apparently bitter individuals of an "opposing stereotype" this entire practice is of course ludicrous for most people of a conventional or post conventional level of thinking, because who care what they are wearing, how are really they acting?
Look that kid is going into Abercrombie and fitch he must be a "prep" and a big dick.

He's wearing a polo and he popped his collar, "prep".

You're such a "prep" with your abercrombie and hollister and all that

I'm very bitter and ignorant, I hate that "prep" blah blah blah.

I am very offended for some ridiculous reason by what that "prep" is wearing.
