The Power of Preps

Fashion trends are constantly evolving and we love nothing more than staying on top of them. From skinny jeans to maxi dresses we’ve seen a variety of different styles throughout the years, but there’s one in particular that is currently making its big breakthrough. The “preppy” style has made its mark as an iconic style that’s here to stay. Although its been around for quite some time (note: The Preppy Handbook circa 1980) its never been as trendy as it is now. You simply can’t go wrong with the classy yet stylish look that this trend offers. Although it can be hard to find the perfect place to shop this trend in the small city of Wilmington, you’re in luck! Wilmington Country Store, a small boutique, has all the preppy you’ll ever need. With their 30-50% off winter sale, now is the time to head on over.

There’s one clothing line in particular that is favored by people of all ages because of their bright yet elegant “preppy” clothing. At Vineyard Vines you are able to find all the preppy clothing need and more. Whether you’re looking to find a dress for a wedding or a cute pair of pajama pants, Vineyard Vines has got it all! To help you get started with your own preppy wardrobe, below are eight favorite finds from Vineyard Vines…

8 Favorite Finds:

  1. The women’s pullovers are one of the most signature items at Vineyard Vines. They’re great not only because of their beautiful colors and designs, but also because of their extreme comfort.

The whole purpose of the trend is to look good and most importantly feel good. When dressing in the “preppy” style you are simply dressing to impress.

Not only do they offer stunning clothing of the highest quality, but they also truly understand the deeper motive of the style. To quote Vineyard Vines themselves, “Every Day Should Feel This Good.”
