Succession style: How to get the 'stealth wealth' look for less

Find out the secret to looking effortlessly chic on a budget.

Now that the hit TV show Succession is back on our screens, expect to see "stealth wealth" looks everywhere. Flashy designer logos are out and chic, understated, neutral clothes - a la Shiv Roy - are in, and that's good news for your wallet.

Although Shiv Roy's actual wardrobe might cost a fortune, the look is about versatile, quality items that can be swapped in and out as the base for a multitude of looks, which can readily be achieved on a budget.

A pair of great jeans is an essential part of your stealth wealth wardrobe. Choose a flattering, quality, re-wearable cut that can be paired with different items to create a clean, polished look. We love these straight-leg Levi 501 jeans, $159.95, that come in a range of colours. A medium indigo pair is perfect for relaxed weekends, while a light indigo pair is ideal for slightly smarter occasions.

Pair your denim with a chic top, like this satin silk shirt from Camixa, $179.90, that's perfect for both casual wear and corporate dressing.

A roll-neck screams understated chic; clingy without being tight, it works perfectly with jeans, pants or a skirt. This Studios Merino Roll Neck Jumper from Superdry, $69, is lightweight, great value and ideal for layering.

Stealth wealth shoes should be subtle but still on point. Jo Mercer's Wish Loafers, $129.95 are ideal to complete your wardrobe; the backless style says "relaxed" while the leather stack heel gold metallic hardware will still get you noticed.
