In today’s post, I’m going to share with you 52 Rich Mom Outfits. These outfits will make you look expensive without breaking the bank.
Let’s dive right in.
What is “Expensive-Looking” in General?
The question about rich or expensive looking generally refers to a person who embodies wealth through appearance and charisma.
Of course, we all know that this is very stereotypical and fraught with many prejudices. But still, most of us are constantly striving to look even more professional and confident to attract the right people, career opportunities, and life circumstances we desire.
We can look rich in a variety of ways – and in this case, it also strongly depends on the occasion, the environment, and the setting in which we want to make an impression.
As a rule, it’s not so much WHAT we wear that matters, but HOW we wear it. In short: Our charisma is more important than our outfit.
So when it comes to our charisma and its effect on others, you are always best prepared if you think about the occasion and the people there beforehand. Only in the next step is it about us: what we want to wear and what we want to bring with us.
How to find Expensive-Looking Pieces these days:
1. Look very carefully at the item descriptions and material compositions:
Acquire a basic knowledge of high-quality fabrics that are adapted to the seasons and disregard short-term fashion trends. For example, high-quality fabrics for summer are linen, silk, cotton, and viscose; for winter are wool, cashmere, and leather.
Of course, nowadays there are hardly any items made of these pure materials, but there is increasing use of fabric mixes, which are simply cheaper in production for the manufacturer – so always look at the largest proportion and make sure that a high proportion or at least a minimum proportion of these fabrics are included in your piece that you would like to buy.
2. Order the piece and try it on:
Sure, this is an obvious tip, but one that is really important. Because even the highest quality fabrics can look unflattering when worn and put you in a bad light.
Therefore, pay close attention to the smallest production errors such as incorrect seams or lint. In case of tears, bulges, or wrinkled pieces, you should immediately become alert and send the item back or give it away – because you won’t be happy with it in the future.
Especially linen and polyester are known to wrinkle very quickly. While, for example, good virgin wool hangs itself out again (a good indicator of a high-quality item), such materials, unfortunately, crumple even after extensive ironing again and again – you have to like that.
But now let’s get more specific…
17 Rich Mom Pieces That Make You Look & Feel Expensive
1. H&M Men’s Blazers
As I’m sure most of you know by now, because we’ve reported so many times about these great blazers: We swear by H&M’s men’s blazers* because they’re made of a much sturdier viscose than their counterparts from the H&M women’s department.
The soft yet sturdy fabric is simply brilliant, as it ensures that the blazer stays in its usual shape even after years of wear and doesn’t start to wrinkle or shrink like so many other blazers on the market, which are usually made of a lot of polyester. This makes it a piece that can make you look super expensive in no time – without being so.
Another advantage of the blazer from the men’s department is that it sits so nicely oversized, making it totally stylish and modern.
I myself have actually had this model for years and now in pretty much every color – and none have ever disappointed me!
They still sit as the first day and are faithful companions that can definitely keep up in quality with my virgin wool blazer, which just as little creases or falls apart somehow.
A hearty recommendation for all blazer lovers!
2. Button-Down Shirts by COS
Everyone needs high-quality button-down shirts in their closet for the warm days, because the classics can be super casual simply pulled over a top or also buttoned up just always look super elegant.
But since here too, unfortunately, in most fashion stores more and more synthetic fibers such as polyester are mixed, these look super fast totally cheap.
Therefore, it’s essential to rely on high-quality button-down shirts made of 100% linen, viscose, or cotton – and those of COS always are*.
In addition, they offer great shirts in many different colors and patterns – so there should be something for everyone.
3. Trench Coats by Mango
Mango is my all-time favorite when it comes to good jackets and coats* for small money.
But in particular, I swear by the trench coats because they come from a big cotton and viscose content, which makes them pretty high quality.
In addition, I really all jackets and coats that I have so of Mango, wear for years and am always fully satisfied! For this I love the brand – it brings me namely every year new through colder days or colder evenings.
Feel free to stop by there and make sure you check out their outerwear!
This is my all-time favorite trench coat:

20 Unmistakable Signs of a Rich Mom
Finding out whether a woman is rich or wealthy isn’t so easy these days.
Because nowadays you can not only buy a driver’s license or a high school diploma and fake it, but also the status of being “rich”.
In truth, it’s often the other way around: the really rich are usually less conspicuous and also often very restrained, relying on timeless, minimalist pieces.
Those who are forced to look rich often tend to want to show very obviously what they have:
This can be through (fake) watches or other designer pieces that very obviously show the brand’s logo.
Nevertheless, there are less obvious signs that tell you that a woman is wealthy.
- Well-groomed hands
- Manicure and pedicure (not too long nails, well-groomed!)
- Natural make-up or none at all (NO full-face make-up!!)
- Shiny, voluminous hair
- Fresh scent (not too heavy perfume!)
- Never without a little souvenir when she’s invited
- Better overdressed than underdressed
- Decent jewelry (she never overdoes it!)
- The colors of the outfit match her complexion & hair color
- Well-groomed (no bad breath, no smell of sweat!)
- A valuable watch
- She takes care of her figure (healthy diet, sports!)
- She doesn’t drink (much) alcohol
- Natural tan (no solarium or self-tanner!)
- She’s friendly & smiles a lot
This is What you Should Pay Attention to If You Want to Look Rich
Stay away from neon colors. They are hard to combine on the one hand and simply a fleeting trend on the other.
Or have you ever seen an elegant, rich-looking woman in neon!? Me neither!
Otherwise, when it comes to colors, it’s best to follow the seasons, although I can tell you one thing right away: Bright colors do require more maintenance, but they always look a lot fancier!
Here, however, it generally depends a lot on the skin and hair color, which is why it’s best to find out for yourself what suits you. Because that still looks the best!
The color palette changes depending on the season. In winter and fall, you see more black, navy, emerald, burgundy, and plum, while in the warmer months more pastel shades, nude, white, cream, and pink are worn.
Otherwise, stay away from patterns, prints, and inscriptions, because they look neither elegant nor beautiful! In addition, these pieces are super hard to combine! No one has time for something like that!
Call it a cliché, but here’s the thing: quality over quantity!
Avoid fleeting trends (e.g., neon or animal prints). Invest in high-quality basics that you can mix and match in a variety of ways. Buy more skirts, pants, and tops than dresses because you can combine them better in the long run and make more looks out of them.
Materials That Will Make You Look Sophisticated
- Wool, especially cashmere
- Leather, suede
- Silk is luxurious but expensive. Satin is a cheaper alternative.
- Linen is a great material for summer
- Cotton and hemp
Cheap lace, polyester, and viscose.
The Secret Tip of the Super-Rich that No One Will Tell You:
Have you ever wondered why most of the clothes you buy don’t look the way you thought they would on you, but look great on wealthy women?
The answer is simple: tailoring. If you’re serious about having a more elegant fashion sense and looking expensive, find a tailor. With a few tweaks, your store-bought jacket can look like it was made for you. Most wealthy ladies I know have at least 2 tailors who both tailor and customize their clothing. Tailoring is common and can be as simple as shortening pants and dresses for petite ladies.
