Davis says brand names are her go-to for luxe products.
“Quiet luxury isn’t just apparel. Brands like Stanley, JBL and RTIC, Igloo and YETI still have a strong hold on consumers and are high perceived value items, too.”
The RTIC Day Cooler Backpack is perfect for toting on-the-go items out to the gym, pool or park. This backpack has plenty of room to keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours. Two mesh side pockets allow easy access to and storage of water bottles.

Davis suggests elevated wearables for her clients’ company stores.
“For outerwear pieces, I [recommend] Storm Creek’s Woman’s Artisan Jacket and alphabroder’s Spyder Vest. Also, a Brooks Brothers briefcase with its classic design can be a staple for a long time to come.”
Crafted for life on the go, from early morning dog walks to date night, the Artisan Jacket offers a modern take on classic street style that is both versatile and stylish. Made of recycled polyester, it’s also windproof and water-resistant.

Kachmarek says quiet luxury means comfort.
“I live in cozy but classic clothes year-round. Winter is my favorite time for dressing because I have a whole closet full of cowl-neck sweaters and sweatshirts that keep me warm but also add a bit of sophistication. I think quiet luxury is also about being confident in your clothes, which is easy to do when you feel comfortable and stylish. OGIO offers a ton of cowl-neck options.”
This OGIO Ladies Luuma Sherpa Full-Zip joins sherpa fleece with performance polyester for the ultimate in coziness and mobility, and its exaggerated cowl neck and front zippered pockets provide extra opportunities for warmth. Available in black or ivory.

Kachmarek says she wants to try this chic jacket.
“I love the look of English country outerwear. … It screams ‘quiet luxury’ and ‘old money.’ Stormtech has options that hit that look. You can just tell the materials are quality, the earth tones and plaids are incredibly classic, and the styling is so chic. This jacket reminds me of the royal family’s Scotland wardrobe on [Netflix’s] The Crown.”
When the temperature unexpectedly dips, this Women’s Bushwick Quilted Jacket with a snap closure, center front zipper and zippered hand warmer pockets is guaranteed to keep you warm and protected from the chill. When it’s cloudy, use the adjustable hood and draw in the adjustable waist.

Kachmarek would suggest effortless pieces.
“Sweater fleeces are a great option for a client wanting the quiet luxury look. The cozy and textured materials give such an effortless look. While Patagonia has become the gold standard of this style, there’s also tons of other options available. This one from Fossa is timeless.”
The Villa Sweater Fleece Jacket is a perfect sweater hybrid that promises comfort and fashion in one. Decked out with pockets on the arms and side body, the Villa gives a nice touch to urban office wear in heathered stone (gray), navy or obsidian for easy and fashionable pairing in any situation or environment.

Ajami says she can always depend on this product.
“I use my Hydro Flask Flex Cap Water Tumbler every day. I love water with ice, and it’s such a great bottle that keeps my water super-cold from the moment I fill it in the morning to having it by my bedside with ice still in it. It’s an item I can’t do without.”

Ajami wants to try this athleisure set.
“I would love to try out Next Level’s Laguna Sueded Sweatshirt and Sweatpants. Working from home, I mainly go for comfort, but with elevated and tasteful style, so I love my athleisure pants and sweater sets. I love the earth and neutral tones that Next Level offers in this style, so I can see myself going for the desert pink and rocking it out and about!”

Ajami would suggest a cooler perfect for any festivity.
“I would recommend the Igloo Seadrift Switch Backpack Cooler. Available in three gorgeous colorways, the ability for it to be used as a backpack or tote makes it such a versatile gift that can be used in any season or climate. This is a great recognition or holiday gift – I would even pair it with a charcuterie board and cheese and knife set to make an unforgettable outdoor outing gift package.”
