Preppy Trend Grabs West by the Collar

Liz Berndt , Editor-in-Chief

Button-downs and Sperry’s have hit the West Coast, specifically Miramonte, full force. It seems that the West Coast (Best Coast) is beginning to follow the trends set by preppy East Coasters. More and more we see girls and boys following this trend. Blogs like and inspire outfits and clothing choices. Popular East Coast brands such as Vineyard Vines, Sperry Topsider, Kiel James Patrick, Lilly Pulitzer, and Polo have started appearing more frequently in West Coast closets.

Maddie O’Shea, a leading prepster by West Coast standards, describes her outfit making decisions, “My style probably isn’t consistent enough to be considered preppy, but, being originally from the East Coast, I have learned to appreciate different styles. I love sweaters more than anything, a common style from back East,” O’Shea said.

“My love for the preppy style started when I began to read Sarah Vicker’s fashion blog and watch the Sarahbelle93x vlogs on YouTube. I fell in love with the style because it’s so classic and timeless as well as universally flattering,” senior Hannah Silvera said about her discovery of preppy clothing.
