Cyberprep is a term referring to a society that has developed in the same aspects of Cyberpunk but towards an utopian direction, with fair law and no world-controlling corporations. Since society is largely leisure-driven, advanced body modifications are used for sports, pleasure and self-improvement. The word is an amalgam of the prefix "cyber-," referring to cybernetics, and "preppy," reflecting the aesthetic's clean look in common with clothes associated with being preppy.

Visual[]

Cyberprep aesthetics apply the visuals often seen in Cyberpunk to a utopia, centering the positives of technological advancement. A lot of Cyberprep aesthetics can carry similarities with both the Y2K Futurism and Frutiger family of aesthetics as well, due to the similarly utopian outlook those aesthetics have when it comes to the future.

Fashion[]

While cyberpunk fashion is inspired by counter-cultural outfits, cyberprep clothing draws on New Wave, Y2K Futurism aesthetic and contemporary fashion. In synth clubs, it's very common for women to wear leather jackets and mini dresses that display their own brain patterns, while men wear Hussar jackets like Adam Ant. Walk down the street and you'll see women in shiny, chrome pantsuits and men wearing coats embedded with circuitry resembling artistic embroidery.

Music[]

Instead of metal or techno, cyberprep music is largely synthpop, electronic rock and Synthwave like Missing Persons, Electric Youth, and Lazerhawk. Instead of gyrating to techno in a warehouse or BDSM club, cyberpreps dance to synthpop in a night club with hologram light shows.
