Celebrity Chic On the Cheap: Let’s get Preppy One More Time

[Every week our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities are spending $5,000 on an ensemble, you don’t have to.

All you have to do is click on the goods and – boom – you can buy the entire ensemble. Yes, we know; there is a spot for her in heaven.]

October 23rd marked Brit’s 10 years since Hit Me Baby One More Time hit radio stations and 7th grade girls dance routines nationwide, starting a school-girl frenzy. Everyone wanted to act, dress and be Britney (until she shaved her head and started walking around barefoot, that is). And this past year, Gossip Girl brought back the school-girl prep, showing us that What’s Old Becomes New Again, much like the current fads of 1990s flannels and studded belts.

So, in honor of this still-cute prepster look, which is in stores everywhere, I bring you this weeks Celebrity Chic On the Cheap: Let’s get Preppy One More Time. (Wow, I am so creative with words.)

Tiered Flannel Skirt- $19.99

The epitome of the school girl look. If you aren’t feeling the skirt, you can wear everything else in this look with jeans tucked into boots. Adorable.

Prep Cardigan:

So you didn’t go to an Ivy; that doesn’t mean you can’t look like you did. This sweater just screams Yale, but without that ridiculously large debt from tuition, room and board.

Gold Bow Headband

You know that everyone thinks you’re sweet… until you tie your shirt in a bow, throw some fluffy things in your hair and start doing dances in front of the lockers. I mean, this headband is cute and functional, and the bow makes it perfectly preppy.

Nude Layering tank:

Preppy girls are modest, so everything needs a layering tank (you can’t show everyone your goods!). Throw this one on, add some rugged boots or patent pumps and you’re good to go!
