Preppy on a budget!

I’ve had a request from a reader that I write a post about how to create preppy style when you’re on a budget.  She doesn’t like to spend a lot of money on clothes, and told me that we often feature items that are a bit pricy.  I can definitely see her logic, so today’s post is all about finding the classic prep look for less!

First stop on my search was Forever21.  They are a great place for cute finds on the cheap.

Striped dress; polka dot cardigan; striped sweater; color blocked top; pink blazer

The next place I looked was Target.  Their website is a little hard to navigate, so I only included their rain boots on this post, but the next time you’re there I definitely recommend checking out the women’s section.  There are always so really great preppy finds!

Lastly, I looked at Lands End Canvas.  I only included them because their sale prices are truly INSANE.  Right now, a lot of their fall/winter stuff is on sale, and they seriously have me wishing I didn’t give up shopping for lent.  Wool cable kind sweaters for under $20?!?!?! Yes , PLEASE!

Cable knit pullovers; wrap skirts; cable knit cardigans

Some other stores with preppy style and great bargains include Old Navy, Marshalls and TJ Maxx, and of course outlet stores.  Happy shopping!

Do you have any other store where you like to hunt for preppy deals?  Leave it in the comments!

xoxo, Karoline

PS! Have you connected with The Prep Crew yet?!

  1. I found the CUTEST navy blue sweater with a red anchor on it at Forever 21 about a month ago! I haven’t had the best luck with Forever 21 in the past, but they’ve had some really good stuff lately.

    • It’s definitely a hit-or-miss situation with them! It takes a while to sort through all of their stuff, but it can definitely be worth it sometimes!

  2. Old Navy and Gap are always good too. Love the Target rainboots!
