If your TikTok For You page is filled with tips for looking rich, you’re not alone. It’s part of TikTok’s “old money aesthetic,” which, ironically, many creators say you can get on a budget. The look is essentially how people with generational wealth would dress. Think of the Kennedys, Princess Diana or even Gwyneth Paltrow. Just imagine that you have lunch at the country club, have a house in the English countryside, just came from tennis lessons or could attend a black-tie gala.
That’s the look, and spring’s hottest sweater trend, short-sleeve polo sweaters, fits right in. The trend is hot for men, but women can (and should) get in on the look.
You can wear a short-sleeved, collared knit with jeans, trousers, shorts, skirts and more. Higher-end designers, like Chloe and Anine Bing, make the sweaters in fun prints, but theirs cost hundreds of dollars. Instead, the five short-sleeve polo sweaters below are all under $150 (with the exception of one splurge-worthy one) and can help you nail the rich-girl look on a budget.
1. Honor The Gift Monogram Knit Polo, $80
Honor The Gift’s monogram polo gives off an air of confidence when paired with wide-leg trousers, straight jeans or even tailored shorts. It comes in Oatmeal (pictured) and Slate.
2. Reformation Maye Cashmere Short Sleeve Polo Sweater, $128
You may think of cashmere as a cold-weather fabric; however, the knit, breathable material can help regulate body temperature. Therefore, it can keep you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather. This one is 90% recycled cashmere and has a trendy, boxier cut than most other sweaters in this style.
3. Varley Napier Half-Zip Polo Top, $120
You’ll look like you just stepped off the courts in this tennis-inspired half-zip top from Varley. It’s kind of retro, kind of sporty and totally versatile. Wear it with a skort, shorts, pants and more.
4. Maeve Cable-Knit Polo Sweater Tee, $118
Maeve’s cable-knit polo sweater gives off country club chic vibes — no golf or tennis experience required. Wear it to lunch with the gals or to sip your Aperol Spritz after chilling by the pool all day.
5. Boden Short Sleeve Geo Cardigan, $180
This style is perfect for wearing to the office with an embellished headband, straight-leg trousers and ballet flats. It’s slightly cropped and buttons up, so wear it open with a ribbed tank top and jeans to dress it down.
