Old Money style: how to dress

Old Money is a classic style, timeless. And sophisticated. But beware: it is not necessarily the “member” statement, in fact in most cases it is just a way to give shape – exactly – to the dream. Very important thing: do not think that this aesthetic is within the reach of a few, anything but democratic. Wearing great designer clothes and accessories is an added value but not a necessary condition. It matters much more… the bottom line.

Therefore, they cannot be absent from the appeal blazer (also above, but not too much), i suit, men’s cut shirts. The chiffon and silk blouses, pencil skirts and pleated skirts, chinos. Belts with logo, the trench and tweed jacket. In winter, make room for soft V-neck or turtleneck sweaters and double-breasted coats. The bags? Preferably small in size, by hand or on the shoulder. The shoes? Moccasins, Mary Janes, slingbacks and pumps. As long as they’re not flashy. In your free time they are also welcome the university and the sneakers, as long as they are white and sober. At night, the top is the sheath dress.

As for the color, it is mandatory a low profile palette: white, black, neutral shades, blue and grey. PS: don’t forget the scarf!
