10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know
Be warned: If you're not a fan of stripes, I'd suggest you look away now. Preppy style means stripes, nautical themes, more stripes, sweaters, yet more stripes, blazers, chinos, and yes - you guessed it - a few more stripes. But as someone who describes her style as "eclectic, erring on the side of preppy with a twist", it's safe to say I love preppy style.

As a child, I grew up watching Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly films and poring over their clean 1950s and 60s looks, so it's no surprise that I love me a cropped Capri pant with ballet flats and a blazer. I can remember thinking Ali McGraw in Love Story was everything I wanted to be in terms of her long raven hair and that classic Ivy League style.

Here I've featured 10 fashion bloggers who aren't necessarily 100% preppy; more, they all have elements of preppy style to a greater or lesser extent.

So for all you Breton stripe fans out there, you're in for a treat. But let's face it, how many of us don't have at least one striped tee in our wardrobes...? ;)


10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Kimberly - Penny Pincher Fashion

1. Kimberly - Penny Pincher Fashion

Kimberly is impossibly chic and ladylike yet she has obtains a wonderfully fresh, girlish feel to her looks. True to her blog's name, her style is very affordable and very wearable - no high-end designer pieces à la some of the superbloggers.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Lauren - Style Elixir

2. Lauren - Style Elixir

I've been following Lauren for as long as I can remember and have admired her impeccable style which is nothing short of classy, polished and elegant. Although she's a lover of dresses and heels I love her in jeans, a simple blouse and sneaks.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Jess - Prosecco & Plaid

3. Jess - Prosecco & Plaid

A blogger I've been following almost since she first started, Jess's blog epitomises that East Coast Rhode Island style. She'll touch on boho chic now and then but often has a lot of nautical themes going on. This is an interesting thing to note: Look how much she looks like a young Lee Radziwill, the younger sister of Jackie Kennedy, who was perhaps the Queen of Preppy Style. Spooky. Always inspirational - Jess's photos and those locations are to die for.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Sarah - Classy Girls Wear Pearls

4. Sarah - Classy Girls Wear Pearls

Take Kate Middleton's looks and Jackie Kennedy's style and you end up with Sarah Vickers. With probably the most classically preppy style in the blogosphere, Sarah is all about shift dresses, neat blazers, boat shoes and chinos. And yes, pearls do make an appearance, as well as stripes. Lots and lots of stripes.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Kim - J'Adore Couture

5. Kim - J'adore Couture

Kim's style is less nautical and a little more "town preppy". She usually rocks killer heels and smart denim but will add preppy elements like stripes and blazers or a varsity jacket to create simple but chic, eclectic combinations.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Nikki - Midlife Chic

6. Nikki - Midlife Chic

A champion for the over 40 woman and a fellow member of The Over 40 Collective, Nikki's style is beautifully "British preppy". The former editor of Selfridges magazine, she's sure earned her fashion stripes: Tweed, wellies and shift dresses work perfectly alongside her signature Breton stripes, leather jeans and sharp, pointed heels. There's nothing this amazing woman doesn't know about the British high street.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Susana - A Key to the Armoire

7. Susana - A Key to the Armoire

If you want unashamedly classic style with a little vintage and a lot of preppy style thrown in, look no further than Susana's blog. Stripes are everywhere, as are sporty looks inspired by tennis and golf. With legs that would be the envy of a woman half her age, she's got preppy style down to a (striped) tee.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Felicity & Lauren - Pretty Posh Oh My Gosh!

8. Felicity and Lauren - Pretty Posh Oh My Gosh

Two of the loveliest bloggers out there, Felicity and Lauren won the UK Blog Awards Best Fashion Blog Award in 2015 - and deservedly so. As longtime BFFs, this blogging duo work so well together, and they've got touches of preppy style in their elegant-with-a-touch-of-fun ensembles. With shoe collections and coat collections I'd kill for, don't miss their London locations and gorgeous Instagram feed.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Krista - Covering the Bases

9. Krista - Covering the Bases

I only found Krista's blog recently, but she's already won me over with her chic New York style and warm smile. Her style is more on the quirky side of preppy with lots of elements of on-trend pieces such as OTK boots and ruffles, but she also includes essential preppy touches with plenty of gingham, stripes and blazers or a pea coat. Wish I'd discovered her sooner.

10 Preppy Style Fashion Bloggers You Should Know | Blair - Atlantic Pacific

10. Blair - Atlantic Pacific

I couldn't possibly have a top 10 of preppy fashion bloggers without including Blair Edie, it's one of the laws of fashion blogging. I can't think of anything to say about her that hasn't been said already except: If you haven't heard of her before, where have you been...?!
