Let’s be honest: it can be a major letdown when our budgets don’t align with our penchant for designer pieces, especially those from The Row, Khaite, and Totême. However, that won’t stop me from trying to cultivate a wardrobe that is right on par with the luxury looks I’m lusting after. Thankfully, with a little patience (and lots of shopping), there is an abundance of affordable expensive-looking pieces to be discovered.
To achieve the quiet luxury look that the aforementioned designer brands provide without breaking the bank, I start by setting the price filters of my favorite online stores to $200 or less. From there I scan the results for minimalist pieces, in primarily neutral hues, that feel both effortless and timeless. This usually looks like a variety of elevated basics like crisp white button-downs, classic trench coats, easy trousers, streamlined shoes, and much more.
