Everyone has their own memories of school: someone starts a song about "wonderful years", someone still sees physical education lessons or sudden tests in their nightmares. But on one issue, almost everyone has the same opinion - when it comes to school uniforms. Usually it is uncomfortable and strange - the sleeves of square jackets are prickly, white shirts are always getting dirty … And also teachers attack for every attempt at a fashion riot, even the smallest one. Fortunately, we have already grown up, and no one can scold us for going out in jeans. So it's time to look back at the school uniform not with the usual distrust, but with interest. Moreover, this fall, exactly by September 1, the preppy style is also returning to adult fashion.

With a school uniform from Russian childhood - if, of course, you spent 11 years not in an elite private school - the classic preppy has little in common. Much more - with the outfits of schoolchildren from American films, from whom you always want to spy on and steal a couple of stylistic combinations, even if the film itself is not very good. Although initially it is still a university style, moreover, the Ivy League, that is, the style of students from the best families who can afford to study at the best universities and probably live a better life. Perfect, like a picture of a fulfilled American dream.

We will not talk about how preppy was in the 80s, when it appeared, and what it looks like in the version for the new generation of the same students from good families. The reboot of the preppy style happened back in 2010, when True Prep was released - an updated version of its adherents' handbook, The Official Preppy Handbook. You can read an excerpt from it at Vanity Fair, and we will give only a few of the most striking fashion rules.

  • “We wear sportswear. It’s easier to go from sporting events to public events (although there is no particular difference between them) without going to change.”
  • "Each of us, regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation, has a blue blazer."
  • "We don't show our wit with slogans on T-shirts."
  • “Jockey boots can be worn by non-jockeys. Cowboy boots can be worn by those who have never mounted a horse. Cowboy hats, however, cannot be worn by anyone who is not technically a cowboy. "
  • “You can wear a Harvard sweatshirt if you went to Harvard, your fiancé went to Harvard, your kids go to Harvard. Otherwise, you force us to ask you an uncomfortable question. "
  • Finally, "the best fashion statement is the absence of any fashion statement."

Fortunately, learning the full list of rules for the upcoming fall season is not at all necessary. Because literally, almost none of the designers quote the preppy style this time. Rather, it just becomes an inspiration - different brands have different elements of it, and someone generally quotes a school uniform that has no special relation to respectable Harvard students.

In order to be in trend, you just need to have one thing in your wardrobe for the fall - a jumper with a V-neck. Or, if desired, the same vest. The looser, more relaxed and longer, the better, as in the Victoria Beckham show. At any other time, we would recommend wearing this on a naked body or over a weightless slip dress. But not today, because the designers are betting, on the contrary, on layering and volumes: under the jumper you can wear a spacious shirt or turtleneck, down - wide long trousers. If you want ready-made and simpler (to handle, not visually) combinations, look at Thom Browne: they have collected all possible variations of three-piece suits in their fall collection. And they even remembered about the forgotten accessory - golf braces. Well, just black dresses with white collarsa tartan of various colors and sweaters in a diamond in the end, too, have not been canceled.
