just because you are not rich and perfect like all the people that live in mansions in new york,
massachusettes, conneticut, and all the new england states..does not mean you are not a prep. not all preps can afford lily pullitzer, polo, lacoste, and all those high name brands. that doesnt mean they are poor it just means they cant afford that. abercrombie and fitch, hollister, american eagle, aeropostale, gap , old navy etc. are preppy stores...just not the reallly really preppy ones. preps are not snobby and think they are better than everyone else. just the other entries i read did sound like those are the kind of people they are. popping your collar in an a+f or hollister polo is preppy. your hair should be nicely styled and if you need make up to look pretty than that is fine.
girls or guys and rich or average people who like the prep style whether they wear a+f and hollister or lily pullitzer and polo.

Preppy, also spelled, "Preppie," originally just meant someone who went to a prep school and got a good education. Now it is typically used very differently.

Someone labelled as a preppy (or preppie) is usually a youth, most likely middle-class or above, who wears brand-name clothes like Abercrombie & Fitch, listens to the popular music, hangs with the popular people, does reasonably well in school, and fits in well. There are many traits that people would call preppy, such as wearing polo shirts with the collar popped.

The word evolved from the term, "Yuppie," which stood for, "Young Urban Professional." Some Preppies are children of Yuppies.

While this of course can't be said for all people labelled, "Preppy," they are often critized for their excessive consumerism and conformity. While usually not rude to less popular kids, they tend to exclude. Some might thoerize that, from a psychological point of view, they rely on the latest clothes, music, and sometimes cars for self-esteem and that they use these items to define themselves and find meaning in their lives. But despite the time, money, and effort they spend to enhance their personal appearance and stand out among their peers, in the end they often seem indifferent to each other.

Past their clean exteriors, it isn't unknown for them to be heavy users of drugs and alchohol, and to have permiscuous sex; But this doesn't in any way mean that all of them, or even most of them, are like this.
"There is an idea of a Preppie; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real Preppie: only an entity, something illusory. And though you can shake their hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense your lifestyles are probably comparable... they simply aren't there."

"He's cool, but he's too preppy, always wearing Abercrombie and stuff like that, you know?"

A large social group consisting of shitheads who think they are above everybody else because they don't pay for shit with their own money. They never have to work hard for anything, so later in life when they go broke, they end up on Bravo in some stupid reality TV show.
If you wanna see preppy people, watch Bravo.

*The Modern Prep*

Gee, I learned the word preppy from urban dictionary.com by reading more than 20 definitions.

I guess, preppy is a life style, if you guys wanna call it that. (Most of the definition writers are probably wanna-be preps anyway, thinking that they're preps :D, or girls lol. you guys are pathetic, and preppy girls hate, A&F girls awww... prob coz the A&F guys look better and they can't get em? lol)

But you guys definately want to segregate yourselves from the rest of the world, thinking your so special. I guess, I would do the same if I could have. But I guess I can't cause I'm poor as shit. (and now I know what you preps think about yourselves, I would never want to be a prep, and so I go beyond the prep. Preps suck, and I will shit on preps.)

And so, that is why they exist, the modern prep:
1) Simple One, or two colored clothings.
2) Stripe is too sophisticated design.
3) Do not follow the trend.
4) Do not follow other preps.
5) Wear and do what you enjoy.
6) Express by dressing.
7) You are naked without a necklace or bracelet
8) You do not wear rings, because they're uncomfortable.
9) You have long shaggy hair.
10) You have deep thoughts but you don't tell other people because it's not possible to communicate.
11) You do not brag.
12) Must have more than 20 polos, even same colors. You even have more than 2 jeans that are exactly the same.
13) Non-baggy/Non-tight Jeans.
14) Ripped Jeans.
15) Ripped white plain hanes with holes.
16) Pants are all over 100 bucks.
17) Buy expensive wear, and rip the brand tag off ( around the left nipple area )
18) You are not scared.
19) You are intelligent and do extremely well in school. 3.6gpa and up
20) You enjoy by doing, not talking
21) You are not a hypocrate.
22) You listen to classical music, and donetello's david is your favorate sculpture.
23) You make your own music.
24) You are a great drawer/painter.
25) You are creative.
26) You do not listen to anybody/anything, you are motivated by what you like.
27) If it's been done before, you abandon it.
28) Modern preps don't get along with other modern preps.
29) You hate religion.
30) You do not have group sex.
31) You don't meet somebody that night and sleep with him/her.

Then you're a modern prep.

BUT you will never be it even if you wanted to because:
1) You're not smart enough.
2) You're a hypocrate.
3) You're your parent's slave.
4) You're scared.
5) You think that religion may exist, while we burn bibles.
6) You're not artsy, and thus can not be a true thinker.
7) Never will be extremely rich.
8) ** You think you're satisfied with your life. While others keep climbing up. If this motion is relative, you will be down someday :D **
The preps looked like nothing but geeks in the face of modern preps.
