Old money and new money aesthetics!

Updated: Jan 21, 2022

Part of looking rich, affluent and upscale is your outfit, manners and body language!

If you are going for the "old rich aesthetics", wear more neutral tones ( the appropriate ones for your color pattern), expose less skin at all times and make sure your nails are short and your hair color is up to 3 shades lighter than your natural one.

"Old rich" can be translated into more conservative (not purely), less loud and colorful with an aesthetic approach than can be work for generations. Jewelry and accessories are very important for their appearance , too.

"New rich" experiments more with new fashion designers and trends, sometimes wants to stand out of the competition and adores anything new and unique. This stems from their psychological need to depict that they rich now "they have arrived" and many must notice them. When you are new to a scene, you want to say it loud and this is what many new rich do.

This doesn't mean that they don't value old money brands like Loro Piano and Channel but they will probably pick the less traditional items from their offerings.

Let us not forget that there is a broad spectrum between Old and New money and most of the people are somewhere in between.

What is the best aesthetic ?

It all comes down to personal preference and your personal/ professional goals and aspirations. It is also connected to how well you can support each of this aesthetics. If you are fidgeting when you are wearing color or a unique item ( remember Julia Roberts in the elevator scene with the red dress?)then you must take it into account.

At my 3 month image make over program , I dedicate a session to learn all i can from the client i work with so as to suggest the best custom styling strategy for her.


Trust your "fashion instinct" to guide you to the items you like the most but then you have to make sure that they work well with the rest of your wardrobe.
