While combing through street style photos of celebs and fashion girls, we came to a realization: British girls are huge fans of classic preppy pieces and wear them over and over again. Items like trench coats, checked blazers, and menswear-inspired collared shirts are in constant rotation in their closets. But the interesting thing is the way they style them. Instead of feeling too conservative, the way they wear them feels fresh and cool. A plaid skirt might be paired with shiny sock boots while a button-down top is paired with jeans and fur-embellished slides. Go on to get some inspiration from their preppy outfit ideas.
