Preppy dressing may not be the hallmark of Los Angeles style — but, that doesn't mean we don't enjoy mixing in the collegiate aesthetic into our ensembles from time to time. After all, prepping up your wardrobe doesn't necessarily mean wearing pastel-colored polo shirts, argyle headbands, and charm bracelets on the regular.
In fact, preppy style can look extremely sleek and chic. Take, for example, this week's Parker Party, in which a handful of super-stylish leading ladies, including Zoe Saldana, Kate Mara, and Jaime King, each showed up in variations of the prep-chic trend. Click through the different looks, which undeniably prove that the preppy look is as current as ever. So go ahead, put a little prep in your step.
