Have you been trying to change your look to a more elegant aesthetic this year?

You’ve come to the right place.

A few weeks back, we talked about how to dress like old money, and today we’re expanding on that with some quiet luxury outfit ideas.

In case you’re not familiar with the quiet luxury aesthetic, it’s all about building a high-quality, timeless wardrobe that looks expensive and well-made but doesn’t feature luxury logos. It’s a subtle “if you know, you know” kind of vibe.

If this sounds like your dream wardrobe (us, too), read on for some go-to quiet luxury outfits to help you build out your closet.

Elements of Quiet Luxury Style

First, a quick primer on what we’re talking about when we say quiet luxury. Here are the basic elements of the quiet luxury aesthetic:

Tailored Coats & Blazers

Quiet luxury items are usually sleek and tailored, so most quiet luxury wardrobes revolve heavily around coats and blazers.

A long wool coat like the one seen above can be tossed on with any outfit to give it a more luxurious feel.

Also, tailored blazers work the same way as coats to add polish to any ‘fit, with the added benefit of being year-round staples that also work in the office.

Invest heavily in your jackets and coats to nail the quiet luxury vibe.

Well-Fitted Shirts & Blouses

Another key element of every quiet luxury outfit is a well-fitted shirt or blouse, usually in a high-quality natural fabric like silk or cotton.

For example, a fitted wrap blouse like the one seen above is a great piece to have in your closet that you can use to create multiple different types of outfits. The cream color really ups the luxury feel of this piece.

In particular, this blouse would look great with a pencil skirt for the office or with a simple pair of straight-leg jeans and flats for every day.

Tailored Bottoms

Another clothing category that’s a hallmark of the quiet luxury look is tailored pants and skirts.

Tailored bottoms like the pleated wide-leg pants seen above are, again, quite versatile. They can be worn with a cashmere sweater and sneakers for daytime or even for fancier occasions with a bodysuit and heels.

Tailored skirts, on the other hand, will give you a more classically feminine quiet luxury look that’s once again fantastic for the office.

Quiet Luxury Outfit Ideas:

Now, to put it all together, here are some quiet luxury outfit ideas to get you started building your new wardrobe.

Satin Top & Pants

Silk satin is a quintessential luxury fabric, so, naturally, a satin top and pants combo gives off a luxurious vibe.

A black satin tank like this one is a great piece to add to your closet if you are looking for something you can wear to create many different types of looks.

If you also invest in these matching silk pants, you will have a full outfit that can be worn for a more casual occasion or even for fancier occasions with fun heels and accessories.

Pleated Skirt & Button-Up Top

Pleated skirts are very popular right now, and aside from being trendy, they’re a chic staple that fits into any quiet luxury outfit.

For example, this chic pleated midi skirt looks so classic when paired with a button-down shirt (another quiet luxury staple) and some cool sneakers.

Once again, this outfit could be dressed up for the office by swapping the sneakers for heels and adding a thin belt at the waist.

A-Line Mini Skirt & Bodysuit

A-line cuts are also very popular in quiet luxury looks, so when shopping for your new wardrobe, it’s great to aim for this silhouette when possible.

For example, this A-line mini skirt is a simple and chic piece to add to your wardrobe to pair with many of your outfits. It’s short, yes, but it also looks luxe thanks to its smooth fabric and sleek construction.

You can wear this skirt with a cute blouse and boots for a more casual everyday look or you can wear it with a simple bodysuit and heels, as seen above, for a fancier vibe.

Button-Up Blouse & Neutral Pants

A button-up blouse like this one is another quiet luxury must-have. This one has fun details like a Peter Pan collar and ruffle sleeves to give it an even more luxurious feel.

The outfit above would be perfect for the summertime. Just pair this pretty blouse with a matching linen skirt and woven accessories and you’re good to go.

Alternatively, you could combine the blouse with white jeans and flat sandals for a more casual feel.

Pleated Dress

If you love dresses, you may be wondering what kind of dresses you can add to your closet to get the quiet luxury look.

A midi dress like this one, which features a fitted top and pleated bottom, is the perfect simple and chic dress to add to your closet.

You can pair this dress with simple pointed-toe heels for a classic look to wear for a special occasion. Or, you can wear it with pretty sandals or espadrilles in the summer months.

Cashmere Sweater & Pleated Pants

Cashmere sweaters are another classic wardrobe staple that can help you get a quiet luxury type of look. And they can be worn in so many different ways.

For example, you can pair this slouchy cashmere cardigan with pleated pants and heels to get a classy and elegant look that is on the more casual side.

This would be the perfect outfit to wear for an everyday look if you want something comfortable but also chic.

If you are looking for a more girly look that you can wear with this sweater, you can also pair it with one of the aforementioned skirts in this post, either an a-line mini skirt or a pleated midi skirt.

A-Line Top & Wool Pants

Wool pants are another great item to add to your closet if you are looking for pieces that will help you create multiple looks.

Invest in a pair of wool pants like these and pair them with a blouse or fitted shirt like this sleeveless turtleneck top to get a simple yet elegant look you can wear for most casual occasions.

Once again, these pants would make an excellent addition to your work wardrobe, giving them additional versatility.

Blazer & Pleated Pants

As mentioned first thing in this article, blazers are a key part of any quiet luxury wardrobe. So if you don’t have one already, do yourself a favor and invest ASAP!

Once you have a staple blazer like this one, you can add it to your looks to give them more of a quiet luxury style.

And, since blazers are classic in cut, you can show off a bit of your own personal style by opting for a colorful blazer like this pretty pale pink one.

Who says quiet has to mean boring?

Sweater Vest & Mini Skirt

A sweater vest is a fun yet classic clothing piece you can add to your wardrobe to achieve more of a quiet luxury type of style.

What I love about a sweater vest like this one is that it can worn by itself or with a shirt underneath to make your outfit stand out even more.

Pair this vest with a simple mini skirt like the one seen above, and you will have a quiet luxury look that you can wear for any occasion!

You can also add a coat to this look for even more old money style points.

Wool Coat & Jeans

You cannot have a luxury wardrobe without a tailored coat. So you should definitely consider a wool coat like this one when trying to achieve a quiet luxury style.

What’s great about a longer coat like this wool one is that it goes with any outfit, whether it’s a dress or pants. Shorter coats generally only go with pants, so you get more versatility with increased length.

To style, you can make the coat the center of the outfit by wearing it with jeans, a basic turtleneck, and matching accessories.

Silk Skirt & Turtleneck Sweater

You might also want to add a sleek midi skirt like this silk skirt to your wardrobe. Once again, silk is a quintessential quiet luxury fabric.

This midi skirt looks amazing when paired with a cashmere sweater and heels as seen above. Note that the outfit is monochromatic in tone, which helps it feel even more expensive.

Just be sure to opt for muted colors for the most classic feel.

3. Be Mindful of Budget

Get The Quiet Luxury Look On Any Budget

Sometimes, it can be tough to find quiet luxury looks on a budget because higher-quality clothing pieces are usually pricey.

The key is to consider cost per wear and invest in items you’ll get a lot of use out of.

For example, you can buy a jacket that you can wear with multiple different kinds of looks to help you save. Or, you could buy a pair of tailored pants that you know you can wear to work and school.

And remember, no wardrobe is built overnight!

I recommend saving up for a few high-quality pieces instead of buying a bunch of cheap ones. That’s what real luxury is about.
