Embrace the Bold: How Palm Beach Chic is Redefining Spring Style

The moment I saw the Palm Royale trailer, I was struck by a revelation. The new Apple TV+ series, which follows Kristen Wiig in her role as a woman who schemes to enter the high society of Palm Beach Florida, in 1969, is an exciting premise. However, the fashion and aesthetics are also fresh and timely and feel like the next big trend.

It’s only right that we give our spring and summer wardrobes a “Palm Beach Chic” makeover in an age when we are all obsessed with old-money trends such as quiet luxurious, and mobwife style. Learn all about the colorful, warm-weather-ready style, including its key elements and how to replicate it for yourself.

The quiet luxury aesthetic has become a popular trend in the fashion world. The refined, minimal, and very Succession-appropriate aesthetic quickly caught on as an understated way to look and feel luxe for the every day, whether you’re investing in timeless high-end pieces the way a Roy sibling or Sofia Richie Grainge would or emulating the style with more affordable alternatives. Simultaneously “recession core” trends such as ballet shoes, ” clean girls”, and ” Vanilla girl”, have thrived, offering pared-down yet inspired fashion and beauty styles that are affordable at any price.

As with any trend cycle, we’re bound to see the opposite. We saw this in the mob-wife aesthetic that went viral at the beginning of 2024. This trend is a mix of quiet luxury and moneyed sensibilities, but it is also more maximalist. statement jackets oversize jewelry and lots of Leopard print are key elements. Apres ski makeup cemented retro maximalism as winter’s most dominant mood. Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans, which aired at the same time as Feud: Capote vs. Guest, portrayed by Chloe Sevigny, spent a lot of time at her Palm Beach oceanfront villa in the series).

Palm Beach’s glitzy high-society image has been around for years, but a bevy of old-money fashion trends has helped the signature style of the vacation destination to reach the mainstream. Spring is a time when we embrace color and prints to celebrate the season. So, why not use this opportunity to channel the beachy vibe of our wildest fantasies?

Class of Palm Beach, which showcases the most stylish visitors and residents in this upscale town, has become a TikTok viral hit. You’d expect that the majority of those featured are wearing eccentric pieces, including coastal staples and luxury brands. Some of their favorites include Zimmermann Lilly Pulitzer Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta. The looks are always colorful and breezy. They combine traditional vacation style with the high-end, global ensembles of fashion capitals. Palm Beach Chic is an outstanding way to enjoy play and leisure while putting on your best face.

Palm Royale’s fictional world pays homage to the same 1969 energy with florals, colorful swimwear, and an abundance of statement accessories. Wiig’s character Maxine Simmons gravitates towards patterned shift dresses and sunny palettes. She also loves summery hair accessories and hats. Kaia Gerber, who plays Mitzi, an aspiring model and manicurist, wears a lot of swingy minidresses in vibrant colors. Laura Dern’s Linda is more hippie-inspired, so this would be a great excuse to buy a caftan. If you want to see a modern take on Palm Beach luxury, then look no further than the White Lotus’ second season. The dresses and accessories Jennifer Coolidge wears as Tanya, as well as Meghann Fahy as Daphne, would look equally at home in Florida or Sicily.

Playful Jewellery

The Palm Beach Chic Agenda

We understand that the Palm Beach staples above are perfect for vacation or when you want to be bold. However, if these items seem too extravagant for everyday wear or your style is completely different, we can still appreciate them. You don’t need to embrace coastal maximalism head-to-toe. Even a hint of its playful decadence will make any spring look feel new. I rarely deviate from my stereotypically New York wardrobe of mostly black, but on days I feel eccentric or the spring sun has me feeling optimistic about the world, I like to play around with Palm Beach’s iconic accessories, such as colorful scarves and bold sunglasses.

The Palm Beach Chic aesthetic is a great way to get away from the minimalist, ultra-regular vibes of quiet luxury and embrace a more showy and lighthearted spring. There are many ways to incorporate it. The joy that this trend brings to your style will be irresistible. We can only hope that the summer weather will bring us more of the creative and maximalist energy 2024 brought. This will allow us to enjoy ourselves in the most luxurious manner possible.
