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

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

·2-min read

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.
