The Preppy Look for girls and boys is in style and in a big way. Kids all over the USA are proudly sporting their polo shirts, perfectly pressed trousers and cable cord sweater vests. The Preppy Look traditionally calls for expensive, name brand clothing like Polo, Tommy Hilfiger, Lacoste or Nautica. But, if it's just the look your after, you can dress your kids in hot-as-can-be preppy wear for a fraction of the cost.
