Even if one doesn’t aspire to be a rich mom of the East Coast, one thing I think we can all agree on is that we aspire to have their style. Though the East Coast covers several states, one common thread that connects East Coast rich mom style is that it’s sophisticated, refined and timeless — and who doesn’t want to embody that daily? I know I do, which is why I rounded up 18 pieces so we can all achieve the East Coast rich mom fashion aesthetic this summer.

Most of the time throughout the summer, an East Coast rich mom can be found on a beach sipping an Aperol spritz, whether that may be in the Hamptons or Nantucket. That means they’re often spotted in things like breezy floral dresses, lightweight cardigans and linen pants — all of which we made sure to include below. However, other moms, like those on the Upper East Side, are dedicated city dwellers, so we also included a few pieces for those who align with that style. No matter which East Coast mom you align with, the styles below are sure to help you nail the vibes.
