A New Kind of Preppy
WASP 101 will resume daily posting in a couple weeks, but in the meantime we will try to post as often as possible. We will also gear up and get Preppy Fox off and running again in the next couple weeks. "Kipp" is super excited but she has requested a more feminine design which I will oblige her with.
Today's topic focuses on the new kind of preppy we are currently seeing. To further elaborate, I think this preppy style shows the difference between preppy and WASPy style. Preppiness is open to experimentation where WASPy style is a little more stuffy.
The new trend is mixing rugged looking wear such as the barn jacket pictured above with sport coats and bow ties. Another example would be the camo bow ties floating around, which honestly repulse me. To be honest, I am not sure what I think about this style. Thoughts?
