Preppy clothing’s roots can be traced back to the private universities of the early 1900s in the Northeastern United States. More specifically, it was considered as a uniquely Ivy League way to dress. Those who attended Ivy League schools were usually quite affluent and had grown up with old money. As a result, this style of clothing reflected popular upper class activities in New England at the time, such as rowing, golf, polo, and sailing. Historically, the style is associated with being well-educated and having a high income, but things have changed over the years and now people from all walks of life are welcomed to enjoy these clothes.
