Old Money Aesthetic Outfit Inspo – How to Get that “Old Money” Fashion Look This Summer

If you’ve been on TikTok or Instagram lately, you’ve probably heard of Old Money Aesthetic. In fact, the Wall Street Journal even wrote an article analyzing the huge buzzing fashion trend that’s taking over fashion this year, and just why it’s so hot right now. If you’re not familiar, old money aesthetic is a polar-opposite, visceral reaction to flashiness, “Kardashian”-era of the past few years – showy, ‘new money’ riches – and an appreciation for the aspirational, and oh-so-untouchable ‘Old Money’ wealth. Think: Succession, Ralph Lauren, and the Rockefellers. Princess Diana. Jackie O. Events like vintage Great Gatsby parties, polo matches, frolicking around the quad at your Ivy League, sipping champagne on sailboats, and spending lengthy afternoons at the country club.

These days, old money aesthetic is manifesting in *it girls* like Sofia Richie Grainge, who recently got married in the South of France (and honeymooned at my favorite resort in the Maldives), wearing beautifully put together pieces of Chanel and other old-money-esque brands. Fashion-wise, what these all icons have in common is an affinity towards simple-chic style. Outfits that don’t scream *expensive*, but whisper it in an air of well-dressed, ultra-chic mystery that leaves everyone thinking “who IS she”.

So whether you are dressing for the polo match this summer, or simply trying to re-create Old Money looks in a way that fits your lifestyle. Here is some Old Money Aesthetic outfit inspo and links to all the brands that old money is filling their closets with, as well as some budget dupes to give you some options. Because who doesn’t love an old money fashion dupe!
