Forget the crested blazers and college ties for a minute. A polished Preppy look may be undying, but it can always do with a refreshing makeover. There’s a subtle prep feeling to this outfit of a buttoned-up shirt with a floral scarf instead of a tie; a sharp grey blazer; and a pair of light coloured sneakers. Mixing in some torn denim adds the most casual of twists, while a neat ponytail and minimal makeup – only a dusting of white eyeshadow shimmering at the inner corner of the eye – is ultimately youthful.
