We’re the queens of preppy. But sometimes even our favorite staples--khakis, button-downs and polo shirts--need a refresh. Just in time for spring, please welcome the new class of preppy. Here are nine looks that make an oldie but a goodie totally new again.

momograms
Madewell

Unexpected Monograms

Obviously, monograms are a preppy staple, but choose to personalize something less obvious than your tote, like a cool denim jacket you can throw on over anything. 

Get the look: Madewell ($118)

sneaks
Sincerely Jules

White Sneakers

Let us count the ways we love white sneaks: They go with everything, they’re comfortable and they pair well with shorter hemlines. 

Get the look: Superga ($65)

Collage Vintage

Low Heels

There’s just something so elegant about low heels. Oh, and they’re also so much more comfortable to walk around in.

The Teacher Diva

Oversized Glasses

Channel your inner Jackie O.
