Seven Sisters Style: The All-American Preppy Look

The first beautifully illustrated book exclusively dedicated to the female side of preppy style by American college girls.

The Seven Sisters—a prestigious group of American colleges, whose members include fashion icons such as Katharine Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Ali MacGraw, and Meryl Streep—perfected a look that spoke to a lifestyle filled with education, travel, and excitement. Their style, on campus and off, was synonymous with an intelligence and American grace that became a marker of national pride and status all over the world. “[The college girl’s] contribution to fashion is as American as Coca-Cola, baseball and hitch-hiking,” announced Harper’s Bazaar in 1935.

Was the Seven Sisters girl an East Coast Ivy Leaguer? A geek or a goddess? Radical or conservative? A tomboy or an American princess? In many ways, she was all of these and more. This book presents a treasure trove of images, including those from the archives of the Seven Sisters colleges that illustrate their legacy and enduring reverberations on and off the runway, in Hollywood, and in popular culture.
