Some call it the old money look while others dub it quiet luxury – but at the end of the day, it all boils down to various flavors of preppy style.

The fall runways were all about country club vibes, with Gucci, Miu Miu, and Dries van Noten heading the collegiate chic charge.

Notably, however, they tweaked and deconstructed traditional prep styles here and there to make them more in line with modern trends.

In other words, many will likely be sprinkling preppy fashion staples throughout their spring outfits rather than going with a full-on exact recreation.

1990s fashions have been experiencing a resurgence in popularity for some time, but the buzz surrounding the Jacob Elordi vehicle Saltburn – set at Oxford in 2007 – shows us just how good pointed collars, striped polos, rugby shirts, and all things khaki can look.

Early adopter celebs include some of the usual high-fashion suspects: Rihanna, Hailey Bieber, and Bella Hadid!

What do you think of the prep revival – hot or not?
