I think there is a huge misconception that only preppy people can shop at certain stores – and I’m here to change that! So many bloggers are providing posts on finding preppy pieces at non-preppy stores, and I want to do the opposite and look for the more edgy, casual things at preppy brands.
I’ve applied my outlook to a multitude of “preppy” brands: C Wonder, Jonathan Adler, Sperry, Jack Rodgers, and Lilly Pulitzer. I chose not to include Vineyard Vines because I truthfully couldn’t find items (at this point in time) that I thought fit this theme very well!!
The great thing about this post that is if you are not preppy, you will (hopefully) like these items, and if you are preppy, you will probably still like these items!

My non preppy girls – does this inspire you to check out some new stores? And of course, for the prep-lovers, are you still into these items? And let me know what you think about this whole concept!
P.S. I think you can tell that in terms of shoes, I believe that choosing black is a definite way to utilize preppy brands in a more “edgy” way.
