Over the last few months, old money aesthetics have been everywhere. No longer are flashy monogram labels and opulent, appliqué gold garments the object of desire for the fashion crowd. Instead, a subtler attitude about style, high-quality clothing, and understated silhouettes have given rise to the toned-down, minimalist aesthetic defined as “quiet luxury.” Brands like The Row, Loro Piana, Khaite, and Toteme have built empires off their “If you know, you know,” construction and color palettes, giving rise to more and more people turning to understated basics and elevated, chic pieces to get the look.
Utility-led fashion has never been more popular than ever, and given the rise of quiet luxury, it seems the capital-R Rich are leading by example. While quiet luxury doesn’t always have to rely on 5-figure price-tag pieces of clothing, nearly everything is incredibly versatile, coming in logo-less creams, browns, and blacks.
Although it’s been said that wealth largely whispers, I’m practically screaming from the rooftops about these Nordstrom finds that emulate the chic, timeless look at a variety of price-points. Don’t believe me? Just scroll and take a look for yourself.
