High necklines

Riverdale‘s Cheryl Blossom would absolutely approve of Madelaine Petsch’s look in this photo. If you want to mimic a variation of this, aim for a classic white dress shirt with a high neckline. With one of these in your arsenal, everyone will want to sit with you.

Especially from classic designers, like Olivia Culpo‘s Louis Vuitton luggage. You just need one (admittedly pricey) staple like this in order to strike fear in a preppy Queen Bee’s heart.

Again, another hallmark fabric for a preppy look. An all-plaid suit, like what Nina Dobrev‘s wearing here, is perfect for fighting with your mother about which Chanel bag to buy you.

A cardigan with Easter-egg colors—like Nicky Hilton‘s here—perfectly captures the country-club aesthetic.

Polka dots

If plaid and argyle aren’t for you, give polka dots a try. While not as overtly preppy, they still do the trick. Please refer to Alison Brie‘s crop top and skirt combo.

Throw one of these over any outfit, and you’ll be ready to rule your “school” (i.e., your gym, office, a room full of strangers). Tiffany Haddish’s blazer in this photo is particularly preppy. (It’s the plaid.)
