"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening" - Coco Chanel

Style Feature: Preppy Debute transition into FALL
 Trends we love: Featherly Persuasive


 When you hear the word "preppy," a few things immediately come to mind: pearl necklaces, penny loafers, and characters like Blane and Steff from Pretty in Pink. In other words, it conjures up a look that hasn't been wildly popular since the '80s—until now. Thanks to the combination of Tommy Hilfiger's Prep World (a pop-up store touring the globe with a capsule collection of the designer's prep-inspired classics) and the popularity of two style books (True Prep: It's a Whole New Old World, which is the follow-up prep guide to Lisa Birnbach's The Official Preppy Handbook, and the first English translation of the seminal Take Ivy), the preppy look is finally returning to the spotlight. Even better, designers like Tory Burch are creating seriously cool options with nary a whale print in sight! In honor of this summer-friendly trend, we've sourced some of the best of-the-moment, ultra-affordable preppy pieces for your purchasing pleasure. Whether it's a pair of nautical-chic wedges or a polished plaid dress, these handpicked items will freshen up your mid-season wardrobe without breaking the bank, so feel free to shop today's Under $100 story sans stress. Whatever you buy, just know that Muffy would definitely approve...
