Preppy / Old Money Inspired Outfit Ideas

Last updated: September 28, 2022

A new fashion trend has emerged that’s very different than what we’ve seen before. The preppy and Old Money aesthetic is a classy style inspired by those who inherited their wealth from past family members, instead of working for it. Basically, rich kids from Europe.

The aesthetic is very sophisticated, elegant, put together and chic. The color scheme is neutral so you can stick with browns, greys, beige, white and black staple pieces.

What’s great about this trend is that it goes well if you’re someone who likes that dark academia aesthetic with muted colors, cozy items and monochromatic looks.

It’s pretty easy to achieve this style because you can only need a few staple items in your closet that you can interchange and create new looks. You don’t NEED to be super rich, but this style will certainly elevate how you feel and look.

Must-Have Clothing Items:

  • Tailored shirts & blouses
  • Trousers
  • Grey, Black or Brown blazers
  • Trench or Wool coats
  • Black Tights
  • Ballerina Flats / Pumps
  • Button Up Cardigan

With just a few of these items you can totally achieve this aesthetic. A well tailored pair of trousers, pumps and a blouse you can rock this preppy style. Throw on a blazer for a more sophisticated look or switch the blouse with a cute vintage button up cardigan.

To finish your style don’t forget to get some accessories. Now a days we want to move away from the brand name designer logos and go for a more simpler sophisticated style. This means that we want low-key designer items that are chic, versatile and can be worn with many different outfits.

Must-Have Accessories:

  • Designer mini bag
  • Pearl / Gold necklace w/ Matching Earrings
  • Oversized Scarves
  • Sunglasses

We’ve got a few of these preppy / old money aesthetic outfits to give you that inspiration you need if you want to achieve this type of look.
