Over the last few months, the old-money aesthetic has been everywhere. Gone are the days when flashy monogram labels and opulent appliqué garments are objects the fashion crowd desires. Instead, a more subtle attitude about style, high-quality clothing, and understated silhouettes has given rise to the toned-down minimalist aesthetic defined as “quiet luxury.” Brands like The Row, Loro Piana, Khaite, and Toteme have built empires from construction and color palettes that scream “If you know, you know,” 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, and given the rise of quiet luxury, it seems the rich are leading by example. While quiet luxury doesn’t always have to mean clothing with five-figure price tags, nearly everything is incredibly versatile, coming sans logos in 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 various price points. Don’t believe me? Just scroll and take a look for yourself.
