Preppy
Preppy

Preppy, also spelled preppie, is a shortened version of the word preparatory. It is a chiefly North American adjective or noun traditionally used in relation to northeastern private university-preparatory schools, as well as those who attend Ivy League or other prestigious colonial era colleges and universities. The term is used to denote a person seen as characteristic of an attendee of these schools.
Characteristics of preps include a particular subcultural speech, vocabulary, accent, dress, mannerisms, and etiquette.

New Englanders are often stereotyped as being preppy due to the region's connections to old money.

The preppy style originated in the 1960s and the 1970s. As the style is associated with the WASP ethnonym, preppies frequently wear more traditional styles.

Classical preppies frequently dress formally; the teenage preppy often models the appearance of a young professional adult. Many preps play sports perceived as typical of higher classes.

The classical clothing worn by traditional preppies can be seen as bland by those unaccustomed to it. Frequently wearing inconspicuous clothing, the styles usually worn by preps are nonetheless more expensive than most other styles.

Brands such as Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Jos. A Bank, Brooks Brothers, J. Press, Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer, and J. Crew are frequently perceived as preppy styles. An example of preppy attire is a button down Oxford cloth shirt, an argyle sweater, cuffed chinos, and boat shoes.

In 1980, the author and private school alumna Lisa Birnbach edited The Official Preppy Handbook, a tongue-in-cheek guide to what she termed "prepdom". Though intended as satire, it is widely adhered to as a guidebook by those who embrace the traditional interpretation of preppy fashion.

Among the more common sports played by preppoes are swimming, skiing, cross country, fencing, tennis, golf, rowing, field hockey, sailing, squash, lacrosse, polo, rugby, and water polo. These sports historically have been played by the traditionally upper classes of American society.

Although there isn't realy 'preppy' music, stereotypical preppies listen to Acoustic rock and britpop. Rock from the sixties, like the beatles, also seems to be quite popular among preps.

In the 80s esspecially, it became considered preppy to tie a jumper around your neck like a scarf.
