Ask Preppy Girl – Back to School Fashion

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

Dear Preppy Girl,

I am starting my junior year in high school. I live in western North Carolina where we have a sunny summer but very cold winters. What do you think are some preppy staples a high school girl like me should have for back to school and the colder winter months?

Dear Back to School Prep,
Thank you for the email. I hope you are having a great year. A few fashion essentials to get you from the warm weather to winter are:

  • Corduroy jeans and skirts – many colors
  • Khaki skirt
  • Skinny jeans – dark wash
  • Capris – for fall
  • Plaid button down / oxford shirts
  • Patterned shirt dress
  • Leggings
  • Cardigans – both lightweight cotton and wool for when it gets colder
  • Cable knit sweaters
  • Belts (look great over cardigans and shirt dress)
  • Infinity scarf
  • Pea coat
  • Riding boots
  • TOMS
  • Ballet flats
  • Hair bands

I hope that helps!
– P.G.
