Preppy Picks

Forever21 is usually a store we don’t think of when the word “preppy” comes to mind. Most Forever21 stores house clothing items that are currently in style or trending. After browsing  Forever21’s website I surprisingly found several preppy items that I thought I would share with you all! Most are decently priced, definitely cheaper than J.Crew or a boutique.

Item 1: Scalloped key hole tank

Scallop key hole tank

This top is perfect for the summer months! It looks light and airy. Not to mention to scallop detail around the neck and the key hole are to die for! I personally enjoyed the white color for this top, but blush is also available.

Item 2: Embroidered Top


I love the detail in the top, it’s cute and feminine. The top seems light so it’s perfect for the warmer months. This top tucked into a pair of solid colored chino shorts would be great!

Item 3: Cream colored dress

Blush Dress

What about this dress doesn’t scream preppy and feminine? From the scalloped ends to the embroidered detailing at the bottom and the blush colored fabric, I can’t help but want to get my hands on this dress ASAP.

item 4: scalloped shorts


Can you tell I love scallops? I’m obsessed with these darling black shorts with small white polka dots. These shorts can be paired with pretty much anything and they have such a classic shape that they won’t go out of style any time soon.

Item 5: Khaki Pants


These khaki pants are so classic and simple that you can pair them with a nice blouse, a button down shirt, or even simple v-neck or tank top when it’s hot outside.

Overall I was able to find some preppy pieces at Forever21 and all are an affordable price and in style! I know I can’t wait to pick up some of these items!

Which was your favorite?

Till next time,
