Best Old Money Designer Bags For Timeless Quite Luxury Style

Want to buy a designer bag to make your outfit look expensive, here are the best old money designer bags to help you get the look. These designer handbags are not only stylish but are classic and timeless. So, you can use them for years to get the chic look. 

While the major luxury bags always come in this list, I will add bags that we can still buy without having to take a mortgage on the house. So, in this post, I will not include Hermes, Chanel bags because we all have now seen the ridiculous price points. 

But, that does not mean there are not good quality designer bags that you could invest on for an expensive and classy look. 

My favorite bag is Tod’s Di Bag which comes with a beautiful history and generations of handmade craftsmanship. But checkout our complete roundup.

What Is Old Money Aesthetic?

Old money aesthetic was the biggest 2023 trend and it will be even bigger. The trends started from the famous HBO series Succession. And it brought to light what do people who have generational wealth actually wear. 

It showed styles like silk shirt, sophisticated trousers. Muted trench coats and not so loud handbags.

They wore bags that did not scream designer brands and complimented their overall looks. This was quite contrast to what normal people would relate to interns of designer. 

You know that you can always spot a Louis Vuitton bag with the loud LV print or a Gucci bag with the printed canvas. Which is the opposite of what the real rich people wore. 

While, I don’t think wearing those kind of clothes is going to make you rich. But the key fashion trend that caught on in a good way was dressing classy and elegant. 

And a loud logo bag does not feel classy in anyway. 

So, I am sharing the classiest designer bags and brands that will make you look expensive like the old money rich do.

13 Best Old Money Designer Bags For You

Louis Vuitton Capucines

The Louis Vuitton Capucines handbag is designed in the memory of the first LV store in 1854. And none other than the famous American-Canadian Architect and Designer Frank Gehry designed this piece of art. 

And you can see that with the simple yet sophisticated piece The Capucines. 

The intricate design of the LV logo grained in the handbag itself is an ingenious design and the grained leather adds to the sophistication.
