Everything You Need To Know About The Quiet Luxury Trend

*Collaborative post.

There’s a new trend that’s gaining momentum in fashion-conscious circles all over the world, and it’s proving to be one of the most expensive trends in recent years. Quiet luxury, also known as stealth wealth, refers to wearing clothing and accessories that are devoid of logos and anything that’s too ostentatious. As seen in stylish TV shows such as Succession, this trend shows us how people from “old money” dress as quiet luxury focuses on high quality and classic pieces.

At first glance, this fashion trend may seen inaccessible to the average man or woman. But in reality, the very simplicity of this aesthetic makes it possible to dress like the wealthy, whether you’re rolling in money or not. Here’s everything you need to know about the quiet luxury trend, and how you can get a chic look without breaking the bank.

It’s All About Slow Fashion and Craftsmanship

Quiet luxury is all about making thoughtful choices when shopping and wearing timeless pieces that get better with age. It’s the opposite of fast fashion, which makes it a sustainable trend. Think classic Jackie O style, or all of Gwyneth Paltrow’s courtroom outfits at her ski trial earlier this year. Simply put, it’s taking a minimalist approach to dressing, and investing in well-tailored, finely crafted clothing, shoes, and bags.

Brands like Bottega Veneta, The Row, Loro Piana, Max Mara, and Fear of God all embody the quiet luxury trend since they turn out pieces in classic designs and colours. Fashionistas are aware though that items from these brands can be quite costly. For instance, a simple midi skirt from The Row costs around £1,130, while a cable knit sweater from Loro Piana will set you back by £3,280. This is the reason why some independent designers who want to launch a new fashion brand are working with clothing manufacturers to make this trend more affordable for all.

No Loud Colours or Logos

Dressing like an heir or heiress to a family fortune means wearing understated clothing, and not everyone will know that what you’re wearing is expensive unless they’re well-versed in fashion. This means no loud colours, logos, or brand names in plain sight. For example, it’s choosing a belted beige Max Mara cashmere coat over a Gucci animal print jacket, or a brown leather Mulberry handbag instead of a Louis Vuitton Monogram bag. Adopting quiet luxury style can make dressing up so much easier since everything goes well together, and it also makes you look more sophisticated and professional, which is a plus for those who work in corporate settings.

Getting the Look for Less

As mentioned earlier, true quiet luxury fashion can be expensive, but luckily, you can get the look for way less. First, invest in classic pieces like trench coats, trousers, long skirts, dresses, and jeans, and have them tailored so that they fit you nicely. Next, choose clothing and accessories in neutral colours so you can create monochromatic looks– think beige, charcoal, brown, black, navy, white, cream, and camel. You can check out high street brands like Mango, Zara, H&M, or Marks & Spencer for fashion staples, as well as Japanese retailers like Uniqlo or Muji for basics like sweaters or t-shirts. Finally, pay attention to your grooming as hair and makeup ties the look all together. Opt for neat hairstyles and natural hair colours, as well as minimal makeup for a classy look.

Quiet luxury is one of the loudest trends of the year. While fun fashion will continue to exist, timeless and classic dressing will always remain in style, so consider adopting this look today!

On her love for fashion, Marlo Hampton chatted with Vogue and shared how her love for fashion started. Here is an excerpt from the interview –

“Fashion is just in my DNA,” she says. “I was raised in [project housing], but, at the time, my biological mom would go to the Goodwill to get our clothes, come home, wash them in the tub, and hang them on the line all for us to be the best-dressed kids in Maplewood. People don’t understand it’s so serious to me, and [I understand other] people may not take it as seriously. Fashion’s been there to uplift me when I’ve been down. It really is a part of me, a part of who I really am in my heart and mind.”

Ideas for Stylish Women’s Suits

*Collaborative post.

Suits for women image

I have been into women’s suits for many years. There is nothing like a sharp-looking suit that can take you to the office during the day, and out for dinner in the evening. Suits have been in vogue for decades and the fashion trend is definitely not going anywhere anytime soon. Tailored women’s suits are versatile and flattering when you shop for the right pieces for your body shape and your lifestyle. If you are searching for ideas for stylish women’s suits, here are some style tips to help you create that power suit look you may just fall in love with.

Mix and match colours

Contrary to popular belief, wearing a suit does not have to be boring. Mixing and matching your suit pieces will most likely help you stand out for the right reasons. I think it is super stylish to blend two different colours together. A red jacket paired with a white shirt underneath,  black trousers, and heels would look super stylish. If you are thinking of updating your wardrobe with something classic, this tip is for you. The options are endless when you wear your suit pieces as separates.

Check the length of the skirt

Skirt suits are great for the office. When shopping around for a new skirt suit, make sure you are happy with the skirt length and that it suits your body type. I like midi skirts for work, minis and maxis don’t work for me. One is way too short for the office, the other swallows me up. This is why I double-check the length of the skirt to ensure it is midi, and that it suits my figure.

Shop for quality women’s suit

I saved the best style tip for last here. If you only follow one tip on this list, ensure it is this one. You want to shop for quality women’s suits from reputable retailers. The last thing you would need is to find out you have spent money on a suit that would not stand the test of time. Like many things in this life, when it comes to shopping for a great tailored suit, always go for quality over quantity.

Suits can be worn in many different ways and to many different places. There is a stylish suit for every woman. All you have to do is to shop around until you find the perfect set.
