Popularized by real-life and fictional style queens such as Sofia Richie Grainge, Blair Waldorf, and Meredith Blake, dressing like old money is all about embodying the laissez-faire confidence of the infinitely deep-pocketed. The key is taking a “less is more” approach.

Opt for chic silhouettes and premium fabrics to capture the exclusive look. While the occasional pop of color is permitted, go for a neutral color palette. Designer is always an essential good, of course, but stick to subtle branding making an exception for heritage labels like Chanel, YSL, and Ralph Lauren. Accessories should arrive in the form of dainty and minimalistic jewelry, alongside classic handbags and shoes, like oxfords, penny loafers, or kitten heels.

Ahead, discover all of the outfit inspiration you need to achieve the aesthetic no matter your real budget.

An oversized button and relaxed trousers are the quintessential old money uniform, balancing refinement with an effortless elegance only the perpetually wealthy have mastered. Opt for a higher-end handbag to balance the more casual outfit.

Investing in high-quality fabrics that will stand the test of time is a hallmark of the old money aesthetic, making cashmere a staple. Pair an uber-soft sweater with minimalist jewelry like a gold watch or single-strand necklace to elevate the essential piece.

Layered Neutrals

Neutrals are also a mainstay. Layer a simple tank top with a crisp oxford shirt and a structured blazer for one of the easiest ways to blend in with the Succession cast.

Stripes and Khaki

With any old money outfit, the details make or break it. Pearls, dark tortoiseshell sunnies, and strappy sandals push this oversized blazer and satin skirt into a higher tax bracket.

Understated elegance is just another synonym for old money and a sleek and simple maxi dress is just that. An exposed décolletage keeps the silhouette from being basic while keeping it classy.
