If you ever find yourself on Park Avenue on New York City's Upper East Side or the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, you'll see the "rich mom" aesthetic in action, and the appeal will become clear. The trending aesthetic is posh and elegant but still functional and ready to face whatever the day may hold because, well, kids. But as we all know, you don't have to be a rich mom to dress like one. You don't even have to be rich.

If there's one thing that rich moms love, it's a chic, polished sweater outfit. And just in time for the impending winter (sorry, but it's almost here), I took a nice long scroll through Instagram and found a handful of easy sweater outfits that are giving rich-mom energy through and through. Read on to pick and choose the ones you want to try, and shop the elegant items needed to re-create them.
