Oldies but Goodies

In April of 1980, Time published an article about preppy fashions. I've managed to track it down through their archive. You can read it here.

Admittedly, I did not read the article when it was first published, but I did come across it several years ago. I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I did!

Love the preppy history lesson- the last sentence of this article is particularly interesting! Do you think people are reflecting the same sentiments now?

Meg, thanks for the comment! I do think that there's a certain security in the preppy style of dress. I think we'll see more of the so-called trend of buying more traditional clothing as the new administration is ushered in. Given the current economic crisis, it's nice to know that the clothes I've had for years are still "in style" and will continue to be because they're such classics. I think the article is relevant even now. Oldies but goodies!!! :)
