Transform Your Look with These 9 Old Money-Inspired Outfits

Dressing like old money, popularized by Sofia Richie Grainge and other style queens, such as Blair Waldorf and Meredith Blake in real life and fiction, is about embodying the lax confidence of the rich and famous. It’s important to take a “less-is-more” approach.

To achieve an exclusive look, choose chic silhouettes in premium fabrics. If you want to add a splash of color, choose a neutral palette. Stick to subtle branding, with the exception of heritage labels such as Chanel, YSL and Ralph Lauren. Accessorize with dainty jewelry and classic shoes like penny loafers or kitten heels, as well as handbags that are simple and classic.

Discover all the inspiration for outfits you can use to create the look that you want, no matter what your budget is.
