There are two types of people in the world: those who subscribe to TikTok's recent rebranding of simple, classic style as "quiet luxury" and those who don't. While the world watched on as the American royal wedding took place in the South of France, those in fashion realized a new style was born. Although there's a variety of names to describe the low-key billionaire cosplay, there's one thing for certain. It doesn't seem like the quiet-luxury movement is going away anytime soon. 

Stealth wealth—particularly defined as a nondescript, almost boring approach to branding—can be found anywhere if you try hard enough. Slim trousers, button-down shirts, simple sandals, and neutral colors all fit nicely within the "wealth whispers" world. Many of these items are currently deeply discounted, as Nordstrom is having a big winter sale through February 20.

Below, find the best quiet-luxury Nordstrom purchases at every single price point. From classic trousers to simple yet chic tops, keep scrolling to find some luxe pieces you'll want to add to your wardrobe immediately.
