Problem is that commonly we know about just 2 types of dressing style according to which we dress ourself for these occasions. First is a casual style and the second is formal style.

In which almost every guy is going to dress themselves and you are going to lost between them because your style is as same as those guys. 

If you wanted to dress distinct than others then you would have to go beyond these casual or formal styles. 

Have a different dressing style that will make you a swanky guy in your college and other places. That’s where a new dressing style comes in referred as, A PREPPY STYLE DRESSING.

The young age guys like who are in college (graduating or post graduating) should know about this dressing style.

They should also know how to pull off this dressing style flawlessly if they wanted to be stand out between there collegemates as a coolest & stylish guy.

So, that is what this article is made for. It will teach you what is preppy style dressing and how to nail preppy style dressing perfectly-

What is preppy style dressing? 

A dressing style that is nonchalant about some basic dressing rules, wearing a dress without caring about basic rules of dressing (like; in colour matching and layering).

This style doesn’t follow some dressing rules but it does mean you wear whatever you want, you have to a bit dressy too.

A preppy dressing is not just an outfit it is a whole new style of presenting yourself distinctly (dress wise). 

Hacks for adopting the preppy style. 

1. Forget about rules

The first rule, there is no rules forget about rules that you had followed yet. If you are adopting preppy style then you have to be a bit Nonchalant about some dressing rules which we learned in our young age. 

Be free, dress free no rules just be dressy and showcase your extraordinary dressing sense that is what preppy style is all about. 

2. Try to look young 

As I said above, preppy style is something in which you have to break some basic dressing rule, here is the first one we are going to break for preppy style. 

The rule which we all men know about dressing which is “Dress to look mature” (choose mature masculine colours and designs). No doubt, it is a best and first rule that I would also suggest for you. 

But in the preppy style, you have to forget this rule of dressing, for being a preppy man you have to follow a new or opposite rule which is trying to look younger. 

If you are going to adopt preppy style then forget that rule of looking mature and try to look younger. 

3. Go beyond masculine colour. 

Next hack, a bit related to 2nd hack. It is about choosing the colour for your preppy style outfit stuff. 

We all feel comfortable wearing those masculine colour, I’m using term masculine colour here for those colours which men preferred most often (like; black, white, blue, grey and brown). 

You should have to go beyond these colours and try some new colours like; green, red, orange, yellow, etc. 

Use these colours along with those masculine colours in your outfit that make sense do not just wear it like you are a character of any cartoon series. 

Do not worry you will get an idea of how to add these colours in your outfit in this article below in outfit ideas. 

4. Layering

Next hack is, how to layer different outfits in preppy style? Here is all rule of layering is a bit similar to common dressing style but one thing is different than add at least one stuff in contrasting colour in your outfit. 

Like if you are going to layer a shirt, a sweater and jacket along with chinos and if your chinos and jackets are in similar colour then wear a contrasting colour sweater.

Similarly, if your sweater and pants are matching colour then go for a contrasting colour jacket and if your sweater and jacket colours are the same then go for contrasting colour pants. 

5. Add extra stuff

The last hack for adopting preppy style perfectly for men is, add extra stuff. You can call this extra stuff like accessories, too. 

Wearing extra outfit stuff with your casual wear gives it a preppy style look. You should carry extra stuff when you are pulling off preppy style.
