Like Muffy but sexier

I am intrigued by the nouveau preppy fashion movement. True prep does not deviate and will wear it's LL Bean bluchers untill they are covered with duct tape to keep them together. So, NP is more like incorporating elements of the style, it will never be truly preppy. Ok now that we have that out of the way...

Lacoste has done a great job with this in their new line with gauzy pleated skirts, skintight tennis sweaters and kissing crocs. Honestly all you need to to is wear something navy and white striped that is cut modern and you are NP. Or rattan anything in a bright color. Or boy traditional boy clothes with a smoking hot girl thing, like teeny bikini with Brooks Bros oxford shirt coverup.

Also easy: fishing line swivel bracelets, giant man's watch, kakhi and/or navy with one crazy color accent (orange, neon green, fuchia), platform espadrilles, Kate Spade 5 years ago
