Viva la prepster. After seasons of wacky prints, bohemian accessories, and wayward silhouettes, fashion has made a U-turn and hightailed it back to the country club. Recalling the classic chic of icons such as Katharine Hepburn and JFK, designers like Ralph Lauren, Chloé, and J.Crew are reworking the signature American motif into a modern fashion statement.
