Today on Instagram I talked about fall/winter 2023 trends that I have noticed and Quiet Luxury is a main one. I mentioned that I hate the name and the problematic ties that it has to old money and I would prefer a renaming of it.
I am nominating elevated wearability, meaning read-to-wear clothes in elevated fabrics, designs, and fit.
So not $1700 sweaters, but ones in an affordable range made from nice knits. There are two articles that I read that help to highlight some of the reasons why I don’t like it. There are many more reasons but these give a nice little explanation.
The first from The Cut and is called “Quiet Luxury is Actually Very Loud”, and the second is from El Pais is called, “Against the farce of quiet luxury: The problem with dressing like a rich person from ‘Succession’”.
Next, I made a couple of purchases this week that are definitely not quiet luxury.
They are both from the capsule wardrobe this week. First is the 70s reissue Adidas track pants, and the second is the floral dress.
It seemed to sell really fast, so I am sure it will come back in stock. If you are interested, just hit the notification button to be emailed when your size returns.
I don’t think it is sold in stores, unfortunately.
