Quiet luxury first popped up at the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival thanks to the likes of Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber. It trickled over to New York, which is already all about subtle style. Now, it's showing up in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Here's how you convey the feeling of this trend whether you're a resident or a tourist.
What is Quiet Luxury?
Quiet luxury (often referred to as coded luxury) isn't slowing down anytime soon. It's sweeping the runway shows and star-studded events. This type of trend focuses on neutral tones, sustainable pieces, and classic silhouettes. It's reserved for the elite because it's out of touch.
Per Worth, quiet luxury comes in muted colors and a higher price tag. Some of the world's richest people swapped out their colorful wardrobes for minimalist styles. It's also known as "old money" and the Succession uniform.
The success of the HBO Max series has some people wanting to embrace their inner Kendall Roy. Quiet luxury is not a new concept since it's always been affiliated with the wealthy. It's about looking rich without wearing status symbols, wearing flash jewelry, or flaunting your money.
The Nantucket Aesthetic
It's no surprise that quiet luxury has now arrived in Nantucket. It's the perfect place to relax, listen to the sounds of the ocean, and cuddle up in your favorite cashmere cardigan. You'll feel like you're part of an exclusive club in which everyone wants to look their best, even while on vacation.
Some of the best-dressed embrace the Nantucket aesthetic, which includes Ellsworth and Ivy sweaters, Vineyard & Vine floral frocks with woven tote bags, and J. Crew tank tops with gauze elastic-waist shorts.
You can do your own take on this trend with a little black linen dress by Reformation and The Natasha Flatform Sandal by Madewell, per WhoWhatWear. Or, you could wear the Devin Wide Leg Linen Trousers by Wayf with a black Ribbed tank top from H&M. You don't even have to spend thousands of dollars or have a billionaire net worth to jump on this trend.
