rich mom energy noun [U]
UK /ˌrɪtʃ mɒm ˈen.ə.dʒi/ US /ˌrɪtʃ mɑːm ˈen.ɚ.dʒi/
the confident attitude and simple, elegant way of dressing that suggests a woman has a lot of money
Rich mom energy was similarly inspired by the lifestyle (and fashion) choices of the superrich. An extension of the quiet luxury trend, it also denotes ostensibly low-key garments—neutral shades, simple cuts, no logos—that are nonetheless ultraluxurious and wildly expensive.

blandstanding noun [U]
wearing clothes that are simple and practical, although very expensive
The quiet, understated rise of blandstanding: standing out amid the sea of gimmicky TikTok trends is an altogether more subtle look. It’s time for blandstanding. Which is? A self-assured appreciation of the familiar, the quotidian, the (maybe just a little bit) boring.

UK /ˌkwaɪ.ət ˈlʌk.ʃər.i/ US /ˌkwaɪ.ət ˈlʌk.ʃər.i/
a fashion trend where clothing is of very high quality, well-cut and in neutral colours
Meanwhile, on TikTok, fashion fans are deeply invested in “quiet luxury,” trading Y2K-inspired trends for minimalist styles and muted colour palettes, and becoming a phenomenon in the process. Thanks to the latter, the search term “quiet luxury” has surpassed 35 billion views on TikTok … Quiet luxury is nothing new. Tech billionaires like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg have worn three-figure t-shirts to work for decades.
