The first time we heard this term was when Gwyneth Paltrow was being sued and reporters followed her every day into the courtroom, and of course the fashionistas reported on everything she wore.

Quiet luxury is now the non-trend trend of the year. It’s a style that emphasizes understated elegance, high-quality materials, and impeccable craftsmanship and tailoring rather than overt branding or flashy displays. It’s about a subtle, refined, and sophisticated aesthetic that speaks volumes through its attention to detail and timeless design, rather than relying on loud logos or conspicuous displays of wealth. In a world where fashion trends can be fleeting, quiet luxury tends to transcend time and maintain its appeal over the long term.
How to get the look. Here’s the good news. You don’t have to spend a fortune. Just look for classic styles, good fabrics, and if you want a perfect fit, as all of our stylists will tell you, find a good tailor.
