Quiet Luxury Favorites

Whether you are a fan of the term “quiet luxury” or not, one thing is for certain: there is real value in adding quality basics to your closet. Up until more recently I would invest in the splashy stuff (prints, feathers, sequins) and skimp on the basics. This past year I had the realization that while amazing statement pieces are great (I’ll always love an over the top kaftan), it was time to invest in elevated basics I’d want to wear every day. Pants have probably been my biggest investment this year. I wrote about my love for the High Sport pants on Substack. The Row’s Gala Pants were one of my recent big splurges. I hate to tell you that they are amazing. I blame Jess Graves and her Substack chat. Jess (and her followers!) tend to influence a lot of my more high end purchases. These were a good purchase. The tailoring is impeccable, the fabric is divine, and well – you know I love an elastic waist. Vince and Leset both have similar versions! The Leset are 20% off right now once you add them to cart.

When I think of quiet luxury, I think of my grandmother Ruth. She was always impeccably put together. She wore a lot of cashmere sweaters with tonally matched flannel trousers. Crisp button downs, loads of camel and beige. She wore the same gold collar necklace and chunky gold studs nearly every day and always looked immaculate: simple makeup, coiffed hair, a sheer pink manicure. I will add that quiet luxury does not have to be expensive. As much as I have grown to love brands like High Sport and The Row, pieces like these loafers, this bucket bag, this under $100 H&M sweater, and these ankle boots will give the same polished elegance.

As a 26-year-old, I feel like I’m truly just beginning my journey with investing in my wardrobe. Coincidentally enough, I’m a sucker for a good basicโ€”there’s such an art behind building an outfit with basics without it feeling…boring. Thankfully, quiet luxury doesn’t necessarily require you to burn through your bank account if you look in the right places. This Cos blazer is so simple but the silhouette makes it stand out and adds a pop of flare to the look. These fisherman sandals are exactly the type of transitional shoe I’ve been looking for, they really lean into the “Grandpa Core” trend we’ve all been hearing about (and would look so good with a pop of color sock underneath).

    It’s such an important reminder that “Quiet Luxury” does not have to be super expensive. As I sit here and type, I’m wearing a Neiman Marcus Cashmere cardigan that I bought 10 years ago. I got it on sale in the middle of hot July knowing that it was a classic that would last me through the years. I can’t afford Loro Piana, Khaite or The Row, but I love quality brands like Vince, J. McLaughlin, and seek out real leather and natural fibers from Banana Republic and C by Bloomingdale’s Cashmere. I even love Old Navy’s linen pieces. Long live the classics! I love this post.

    (Also, don’t get me started on the wild manicures that have taken over the younger gens—I can’t imagine spending that amount of time and money when simple, polished pink looks so fresh.)

      Couldn’t agree more on all fronts (and the manicures– yes!!)

    Hi! Do the Gala Pants run TTS? And, I have wider hips, do you think they would still fall nicely? Thank you! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend!

      Yes! They do. I got a medium and they are perfect and roomy (without being overpowering/too baggy).
