“Preppy” season is coming again!

As the season of wearing extra layers is coming to a close and the season of no extra layers needed is approaching. In April, there usually is a rise in temperatures.

Geek chic also called “nerd style,” is the upcoming 2024 fashion trend. With it, a style called “Preppy” based on “Geek chic” is also emerging rapidly. Preppy look, a word from “prep,” which means students from prestigious private high schools in the United States, comes from their favourite style.

There are many similarities with Ivy looks that were popular in the past, but if Ivy Look is aiming for a more traditional style, the “preppy style” has a more casual vibe, such as adding more cheerful colours.

A preppy look is based on a neat shirt and cotton pants, with ties, scarves, hats, and loafers to bring out the elegance and cleanliness of the look. The tip is to style it through relatively neat pants rather than a super wide fit.

Here are examples of influencers who styled the “preppy look”:
