Sofia Richie’s stylist shares how to get the quiet luxury look for less

Liat Baruch’s timeless aesthetic doesn’t change with the trends — but it certainly influences them.

As Sofia Richie’s stylist, she’s helped curate everything from the star’s coronation look to her internet-breaking wedding week outfits — a catalyst for the now-ubiquitous quiet luxury phenomenon.

But for Baruch, a newly-minted Bloomingdale’s collaborator, going viral was never part of the plan,

“I have a lot of high-profile clients. Some are famous and some are not, but it was never about exposure,” she tells Page Six Style.

“It was just more about doing what I do and collaborating with my clients,” adds the style expert, who’s also worked with A-listers like Connie Britton and Nicole Richie.

And while we can’t all score styling sessions with Baruch herself, she’s now offering the next best thing: a collection for Bloomingdale’s exclusive Aqua brand featuring 28 ready-to-wear pieces priced between $98 and $168.

“I tend to go for a more classic [style],” she says of her design aesthetic, which she also defines as “flirty with a wink.” 

You don’t need designer duds to rock the luxe trend, however, as Baruch says you can “create the same look” with “mid-priced” pieces.

Read on for five quiet luxury wardrobe staples she recommends, plus Page Six Style’s selections to shop each one.

Regardless of the season, Baruch recommends investing in a “good sweater, whether it’s a cardigan or crewneck” — after all, staying warm isn’t the only use for a chic knit.

“I liken it to playing with your hair; when you play with the sleeves of your sweater around your neck, it’s kind of flirty in a way,” she says.

You can’t go wrong with a good pair of high-waisted pants, which Baruch recommends styling with heels or flats.

“I think we really nailed it with [the Aqua] tweed trouser … it’s very flattering on the body,” she says. “It hugs your bottom nicely, and it just hangs nicely.”

“I think if you get a good bag or a good shoe and you invest in one piece to sort of tie it in a knot, then I think the rest [of your outfit], you can do high-low,” says Baruch.

“On sites like Vestiaire and The RealReal, you can find good-condition bags … it can top off an outfit.”
