Happy Friday awesome peeps!

Welcome back to Luula blog where you can find tonnes of awesome fashion tips here! Today, I’m gonna share with you 8 Inexpensive Preppy Outfits to Try This Fall. 

Ever since the infamous TV series Gossip Girl aired from 2007, preppy style has become more famous than ever, thanks to Blair Waldorf. While many of you think that preppy outfits must be very pricey and luxurious, it’s not true! You can re-create that preppy look by mix-and-matching around (while keeping on a budget) with important details such as sheer leggings, feminine cardigan and sweaters, pearl accessories, oxford shoes, button-down blouse and ribbon bow tie! Now, let’s take a look on how these fashion darlings rock their preppy outfits with style.

This OOTD is inspired by The College Prepster. Who doesn’t love her preppy style inspo right? Firstly, a piece of basic knitted turtleneck sweater is a must to pull off that preppy look. Pair the top with a piece of window pane skater skirt. For the footwear, add a splash of color to your entire outfit with a pair of peachy pink ankle strap heels. Carry a versatile gray tote bag that has a top handle and shoulder strap on it. That being said, you can either hand carry it for a formal occasion or hang it around your shoulder for casual outings. For the accessories, opt for a pearl statement necklace for that extra touch of sophistication. (Pearl accessories are preppy girl’s best friend.)

#Preppy OOTD 8

Coming to the last OOTD ideas, I’ve decided to create a Blair Waldorf inspired preppy outfit. In the infamous TV series Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf a.k.a The Queen B’s chic-preppy fashion is always the main highlight of the show and girls are dying to dress like her! No worries we’re here to help. Firstly, a long sleeve shirt with a bow tie around the neck is a trademark of Queen B’s outfit. Pair the blouse with a gray color suspender skirt to achieve that schoolgirl look. Put on a pair of blush pink oxford shoes to add extra college-y feel to your outfit. Lastly, carry a structured elegant handbag and you’re done! Now you can say the famous phrase “You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip girl” like Blair Waldorf.
