If you want to adopt a preppy style, here is the guide for you: ‘True Prep: It’s a Whole New Old World‘ by Lisa Birnbach.
From the author of ‘The Official Preppy Handbook’ comes a new take on the old world that Lisa Birnbach turned into an international best-selling phenomenon thirty years ago.
True Prep looks at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapts to the new order of the Internet, cell phones, rehab, political correctness, reality TV and…polar fleece.

A small sample:
Wardrobe: Recent prep brands we are forced to recognize. How to tell Casual Friday from, say, Saturday.
Money: We never talk about it.
Food: Does the Food Network mean we’re going to have to cook? Bake? Now you’re going too far.
Scandals: Poor Mrs. Astor. When Mummy’s plastic surgery goes terribly wrong. Rehab and the slammer: the new prep schools.
We’re outta here: When to name something after yourself, and when not. The right obituary.
What to do with your dogs if you predecease them.
NO TEXTING AT THE TABLE, PLEASE.
With more than 200 original illustrations and photographs, True Prep promises to be a whole new, old sensation.
