Dressing rich comes from three basic things: rich colors, rich materials, and attitude. Crisp whites, smooth neutrals, and dark colors show sophistication and discerning taste – they are called jewel tones for a reason. Bright pastels might be preppy, but these colors have graduated.
Color alone is not enough.
Although you may not know what your suit or the next guy’s jacket is made from, you can tell when something is cheap. There is nothing wrong with getting a bargain, but there is often a clear difference in the quality of materials. Thick wools, smooth silks, and the like are clearly a cut above. Layer these rich materials for even greater effect.
“Sprezzatura,” meaning to have an air of studied nonchalance, is a quality often associated with ideal male attractiveness.
The essence of the blue-blood attitude is that of nonchalance, power, and a calm collectedness. This man doesn’t need to fight for anything, he already has it.
While no one like someone who is too arrogant, you have to have the confidence to pull off the richest clothes and look like you belong.
