Ask Preppy Girl – Prep Style at 40

If you have a question for the Preppy Girl email it to me at

Dear Preppy Girl,
I am a 40 year old woman interested in reliving my high school years of docksiders, cloth bags with whales and Izods. Am I too old to pull off this look?
– Amy

Preppy is timeless, you are never too old to be a prep! Docksiders and cloth bags are great accessories, pair them with a feminine polo and a cute skirt and you are ready for a casual day on the town. Check out the Izod Classix collection, which has some great preppy looks. If you are heading to the office, I recommend leaving the docksiders at home, pairing your outfit with a classic pump. For workwear, check out the styles at Ralph Lauren and J. Crew.
