So, when it comes to fashion, go ahead and buy from new designers, but don’t forget to dig into your closet to revisit a classic pair of Top-Siders or your mom’s vintage Lilly shift, advises The Official Preppy Handbook author Lisa Birnbach, who recently announced a sequel to her famous guide to all things WASP.
Birnbach told the Los Angeles Times about a few additions that will appear in the updated book: “Vineyard Vines — they started in 1998 — and of course J. Crew — which wasn’t around then either. And we’ve got some Kenneth Cole  and a little bit of Robert Graham.”
But, of course, some things never change: Lacoste, Sperry Top-Sider, Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren will still get plenty of play.
