Preppy

Preppy (also spelled preppie) or prep (all abbreviations of the word preparatory) refers to a subculture in the United States associated with the old private Northeastern university-preparatory schools. The terms are used to denote a person seen as characteristic of a student or alumnus of these schools. Prep has become a colloquialism in the United States and has largely replaced preppy in modern usage. Characteristics of preps in the past, include a particular subcultural speech, vocabulary, dress, mannerisms, etiquette, reflective of an upper-class upbringing.

Preppiness isn't just the way you look (but it helps!). It is a lifestyle, a state of mind. One cannot simply become a prepster over night. It takes time to cultivate the attitude, the clothes, and the general mindset. "Life is a party. Dress like it!"
