What is “Rich-Looking”?

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.

Reasons To Look Expensive:

1. You Look Professional

Have you ever seen someone professional in sweatpants?

No? Neither have I.

Why? Because it’s just not professional.

No matter where you go, who you meet – at work or not – it’s always nice not to look like everyone.

Setting yourself apart from everyone else with a charismatic, powerful, and professional appearance will not only get you ahead at work but will also bring you valuable contacts.

2. You Attract the People Who Suit You

When you’re working on yourself, developing yourself, and becoming the best version of yourself, it’s important to surround yourself with the right people.

You know yourself: You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.

When you dress more expensively, you symbolize that you’re working on yourself and that you care about yourself.

Not many people do that.

But the people who do the same will notice you. And maybe you’ll make a good connection or two?

Who knows.

3. You’re Treated with More Respect

People who take care of themselves radiate a good dose of self-confidence.

That means they’re able to set very clear boundaries.

So to be with you, you need to be treated with respect.

You communicate all this through a well-groomed, valuable-looking appearance.

4. You Show Your Counterpart That You Respect Them

But not only are you respected, but you show your counterpart that you respect them just as much.

Because the only person who has to look at you all the time is not you. It’s your counterpart.

A well-groomed appearance is a sign of respect. You’re showing the other person that they can feel comfortable around you.

5. You Feel Comfortable as Well

Believe me, if you start looking more expensive, you will not only attract more people who match you, but it will also make you feel more comfortable.

Be overdressed rather than underdressed.

Mostly, the “rich girl aesthetic is equated with the timelessly preppy “old money aestehtic“, which can be confirmed in any case.

BUT it’s important to note that there are also many nouveau riche people who also belong to the rich girl aesthetic. However, in contrast to the old money women, they are neither heavy heirs, nor aristocrats. They have mostly earned their money themselves and therefore have a completely different fashion style.

This is because while so-called “old money” refers exclusively to inherited wealth generated not by families from the working or middle classes, but by families from the upper classes or aristocracy.

And while this refers to wealth that has lasted several generations, the opposite is true for “new money”: Here, “new money” refers to wealth acquired by or in the first generation.

Examples of new money are many prominent CEOs of companies, musicians, entrepreneurs, famous athletes and social media influencers.

Their style isn’t characterized by timeless, elegant looks, but mainly by designer brands with flashy logos to show that you have money. So this is more about recognition than enjoying creating outfits and matching looks.

Do Wealthy People Buy Luxury Brands at all?

That’s a challenging question, which we can only answer very stereotypically again.

It’s clear that wealthier people, in particular, also buy from more expensive brands. But just because a person wears a designer brand, it doesn’t mean they are affluent. There are far too many good tricks for faking wealth these days.

But I can say from experience: the really wealthy people hardly ever wear clothes where you can immediately recognize the brand. In most rich circles of acquaintances, it is simply indecent, if not inappropriate, to wear clothes with a thick inscription or an all-over print with a designer logo.

They are much more likely to go for genuine quality in the form of proper material, cut, and durability. But in the end, most of them don’t care about the brand – it’s just that quality often comes at a price, and that’s why wealthy people tend to spend more on their clothes.

Of course, there are also just as many people who wear these “flashy” clothes who have money, but usually, these are then rather nouveau riche than really rich.

What Clothes Make You Look Rich?

Now that we know WHERE to shop to look rich, we need to know WHAT to buy there in the first place.

Here are 10 timeless pieces that are unbeatably expensive-looking:

1. Tweed Jackets

Tweed Jackets are the best and most loyal friends we can find in the outerwear world due to their thick, high-quality fabric. They’re also perfect for the increasingly warm transitional season leading up to summer, as they look just as classic buttoned up as they do casually thrown on.

Because one thing is for sure: as the trademark of the renowned and globally popular luxury brand Chanel, it’s hard to imagine a catwalk, Parisian alleyway, or Instagram feed without the tweed jacket.

2. Tailored Blazers

A fitted blazer not only sets off your feminine curves, but it’s also, above all, an easy-to-combine companion for every day.

2. Elegant Dresses

Do we need to say much more about it? I think not.

After Pretty Woman, we all know that fitted dresses made of a high-quality fabric like cotton, linen, or silk are the epitome of expensive-looking.

4. Hats

There’s something special about hats that can make any look that much more luxurious in no time.

And yes, everyone has a hat face! Don’t tell yourself you don’t look good in hats. That’s not true!

5. Knit/Cashmere Sweaters

6. Riding Boots

7. Tennis Skirts

Who plays tennis if not the rich and famous? So go for a sportier look with a classically chic and timeless tennis skirt!

8. Button Down Blouses

9. Headscarves
