Old money, new looks

August 2, 2023

The old money aesthetic quickly became a new fashion trend that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. With a preppy influence and catapulted by the success of the award-winning TV show “Succession”, everyone is in line for this classic American style that is ultimately inspired by the inherited wealth of famous family dynasties, like the Kennedys, and timeless brands like Ralph Lauren and J. Crew. 

Old money is the trend everyone is talking about and wearing. So, what is it exactly? Think pristine quality and impeccable tailoring. Think logo-free but luxurious. Think classic American prep like Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl, but also the eternal elegance of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. But also iconic Princess Diana. Think effortless chic at a stratospheric level. Less is more – old money, new looks.
