Back To School : The Preppy Look

March 08, 2017


"Haven't you heard I am the crazy bitch around her."

Raise your hand if you too are a fan of the show Gossip Girl and of course the Queen B, Blair Waldorf. Gossip Girl was definitely one of my favourites and my favourite character was, well you can already guess, Blair. She was the perfect combination of beauty, wit, fashion and sarcasm. As much as I miss the high school drama, I miss my own school days as well. So for today's post, I decided to create a preppy look similar to my school uniform and I took inspiration from Blair's fashion as most of her looks were preppy.

Before I talk about my look, let me tell you guys a little about Preppy fashion. Preppy looks are  the classic, clean-cut, polished and put together looks. They are totally the opposite of boho, distressed looks, the looks that I generally share with you all. Preppy fashion is very simple and minimalistic. Solid pastel colours or simple patterns work really well for a preppy look. Collared shirts, tunic, plaid skirts and cardigans are the perfect clothing items you can use to create your look.

So coming to my outfit, I decided to style a white shirt with three-quarter sleeves and a tunic dress in mauve. These two items are pretty old but I hardly wore them because I didn't like them individually. But after so many years when I styled them together it felt like these two items were made for each other. The plain white shirt compliments the pastel mauve tunic dress so well. I totally love the little pleat work in front of the dress. I accessorised with a minimalistic neckpiece and completed the look with a pair of suede heels. I had a plan to wear a headband too to give it the Blair Waldorf feel but I forgot to wear it and only after I reached the location for shoot I remembered not wearing it.
