"Hold all my calls. I'll be reading Seven Sisters Style: The All-American Preppy Look for the rest of the day...I'm quite certain it will be a classic style title for years to come. The author is a Vassar grad and fashion historian and we have been corresponding for years now on the subject of tomboys, American style, preppy culture, books, and countless other items. I can't say enough great things about Ms. Tuite who came to this project in such an honest and passionate way. The final result of her research is a thorough definition and celebration of a truly iconic American style, from saddle shoes to Shetland sweaters to the inherent spirit of the Seven Sister student. Each page is a journey through time." -Tomboy Style Blog

"Billed as a response to Take Ivy — the 1965 Japanese photo book documenting the preppy style of male Ivy Leaguers — Seven Sisters Style celebrates the style evolution of the American college girl, from calico and cardigans to Bermuda shorts and, eventually, jeans. Icons include Katharine Hepburn (Bryn Mawr class of 1928), Jackie Kennedy (who attended Vassar for two years before transferring to George Washington University), and Meryl Streep (Vassar class of 1971)." -New York Magazine

"...a beautifully illustrated, intensively researched celebration of the all-American preppy style pioneered by the women of the Seven Sisters Colleges. The Seven Sisters' style changed how all women dressed and it became known the world over as inherently American. A lot of ink has been spilled in the past few years celebrating male Ivy style — Seven Sisters Style is, finally, the companion piece we've been waiting for." -Refinery29

"Even those of us who didn't attend Vassar, Wellesley or Smith will fall for Seven Sisters Style: The All-American Preppy Look. After all, it's these Ivey League colleges that spawned the now-classic American sportswear look and introduced such wardrobe staples as the blazer, bermuda shorts, cashmere and kitten heels." -Boston Proper/Style Edit

"Seven Sisters Style corrects a massive oversight by finally giving these seven colleges their own Take Ivy." -Flavorwire

"...Rebecca Tuite, examines the campus attire that evolved at these schools from the late 1800’s and throughout the 20th century, bringing their style influences full circle to the present day.  Through archival photographs, the author demonstrates how these college women became unintentional fashion trendsetters who laid the foundations of the American Preppy style."

"Tuite is the author of the sensational book, Seven Sisters Style: The All-American Preppy Look, a nostalgic look at the birth of prep on the prestigious female-only campuses of Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Radcliffe, Smith, Vassar and Wellesley, where style icons such as Katharine Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy and Meryl Streep spent their college days. Herewith, Tuite explains the ABCs of spring semester fashion as seen at the Seven Sisters."

"Seven Sisters Style
 celebrates the all-American preppy style pioneered by the women of the Seven Sisters Colleges, and its twentieth-century evolution, from its on-campus foundations and creation of a collegiate “uniform,” to its enduring legacy which can be summarized with the phrase “From Barnard to Bergdorf.” Seven Sisters Style celebrates a timeless and internationally ubiquitous look—seen on and off the runway, in Hollywood, and in popular culture—that continues to be a source of fascination and inspiration, forever remaining in style." -Fashion

"Fashion Titles You Need to Read This Spring: This is a fantastic photo and essay collection on the underappreciated role of women’s college campuses in establishing the codes of preppy fashion."

Redundant; some lovely photos, but poor scholarship 3. Mai 2014
Von Theatrical Moho - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a Mount Holyoke alumna--but not a preppy style aficionado--I purchased the book because I love college history, especially the history of women's colleges. Tuite has said that she did extensive research in each of the colleges' archives and I'd hoped the book would be a fun, insightful read. Not impressed. Tuite argues that preppy style has been hugely influential worldwide, but doesn't go much deeper than that. I found the text incredibly repetitive--both in overused adjectives and in the fact that she makes the same points in every chapter with little variation. There are some beautiful photos and lovely reprints of historical clothing ads, but I expected more from a fashion history book. As another commenter noted, there just aren't that many photos and many that are included are small.

Tuite's research is quite limited in scope. 2/3 of the examples she presents are from Vassar, with a handful from Smith and Wellesley, but only a few mentions of Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, and Radcliffe. I realize that she has a personal connection to Vassar, but the book read as though she'd started it as a thesis about Vassar style and then decided to throw in a few references to the other Sisters in order to reach a broader audience. There were also some inaccurate historical and literary references.

As a Seven Sisters alumna, I truly wanted to enjoy the book and I did somewhat. However, though I learned a bunch about preppy designers, I ultimately felt unfulfilled because the book barely seemed to scratch the surface of the topic.

Disappointing Execution 30. April 2014
Von Sandra - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I loved the idea of this book, however the reality was disappointing. It was far more of a glorification of Vassar than I was interested in, and not hardly enough of other powerhouse seven sisters, like Radcliffe or Wellesley. Furthermore, for a fashion book I would have expected large, beautiful prints. Instead, the images were small, grainy and there were just not enough of them. In fact, on one page the image was cut in half by the book seam.

Great photos, memories 18. November 2014
Von Elizabeth Mossbarger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I saw the book at an alumnae meeting - yes, I am one of them! Smith. I don't have my own copy yet - it is in the mail.

Great photos, memories. A lovely book for browsing and remembering - I know people who are still "preppies "- even as adults.
Even at my age (over 65) there are some of us who still love Shetland sweaters, classic styles but maybe not knee socks!

The Seven Sisters live on!

The breakthrough college fashion moments we still enjoy 26. Juli 2014
Von OBSERVANT READER/VIEWER - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a nostalgia trip I've shared with some female friends and family: the clothing of our sisters and sweethearts back in the late Thirties, the war years, and then the postwar college years of the late Forties. A thoughtful viewer/reader will recognize familiar icons of his dating and courtship days (ah, those camel's hair coats, that "Circle Pin" look!). Rahar's, Joe's, brandy alexanders, one's first pizza, memories crowd the stage! alan n. hall
