In My Quiet Luxury Era

** This post is sponsored by Frank & Eileen. All selections, styling, and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the retailers that support this site.

The first time I heard the term “quiet luxury”, I immediately felt connected to it. I love the idea of wearing high quality minimalist pieces with timeless appeal, while keeping the overall look modern and relevant, and that pretty much personifies the Frank & Eileen fashion brand. This outfit is my take on the quiet luxury trend.

Back in February, I tried one of the iconic Frank & Eileen travel sets, and I enjoyed it so much, I soon found myself adding more pieces to my closet. I’ve already worn the navy Lauren Polo Dress and white Carmel Travel Set multiple times.

Now that summer is approaching, I’ve been eyeing up their linen shirts. I’ve never been big into button-up tops, but there is something about these that looks so effortlessly chic, I just had to try one.

FUN FACT: Frank & Eileen was actually started with the purpose of reinventing the button-up shirt for women. I love the bust-flattering button placement, and it has such a nice and easy relaxed fit.

The 100% linen fabric is made in a family-owned Italian mill from sustainably sourced flax grown in Normandy, and it has a subtly wrinkled texture for the perfect lived-in look. As far as styling goes, I cuffed my sleeves and popped my collar because it just felt like the right thing to do.

I wore this linen shirt front-tucked it into the perfect pair of summery light wash gaucho jeans, also c/o Frank & Eileen. The jeans have a mid-rise with a wide-leg fit and cropped length, and they are made of the most luxurious, buttery-soft denim I’ve ever put on my body.

Details like the hand-distressed raw hem and elevated trouser waistband give them a polished yet casual vibe that perfectly embodies that enviable quiet luxury aesthetic. They run true to size, and they give a little as you wear them, but they don’t bag out.

I’m calling it right now, these are the jeans I’m going to be living in this summer. In fact, I’ve already worn them several times since they arrived a week ago, and they only get softer and more comfortable with wear.

I also styled these jeans with a navy popover henley. I love the raw hem and slightly cropped, relaxed fit.

The Heritage Jersey fabric is lighter than the Triple Fleece that I have in the white, but it’s still substantial without sacrificing softness and drape. This outfit is perfect for chilly spring days or summer evenings at the beach.

Finally, these linen utility joggers are perfect for spring/summer. They come in a bunch of colors, but I was drawn to this neutral Cement.

They have a high-rise with a tapered cropped ankle and and on-trend utility pockets. I love how they pair with the white linen EILEEN Relaxed Button-Up Shirt. You can wear it untucked or front-tucked, as shown here, or you could also knot it at the waist or wear it unbuttoned over a tank or tee.

  1. What sandals are you wearing with the utility joggers in photos? I really like the combination.

  2. Love! Quiet luxury completely resonates with my family as well! I think one of the reasons these button ups work is there’s an open collar- no buttons above the bust giving it a laid back feel rather that so structured. The Patrick popover is a repeat in my closet! The sweatshirt too on chilly spring days. I took the Jamison in navy on a Europe trip about 3 years ago and they were perfect! I don’t own any denim, but have tried them on and they are superior!!

  3. These all look great on you and look so comfortable! Unfortunately for me the prices in Canadian are just a bit too high but love them still the same!

  4. Love Frank & Eileen! I have the Patrick in triple fleece and it was my favorite go-to piece this winter. How do you find the fit of the Heritage Jersey compared to the triple fleece?

  5. All those pieces look great on you. I appreciate that Frank and Eileen’s pieces are timeless (most of them). I have many of their button-up tops, and like Shelly said, I appreciate that they don’t have buttons above the chest. The material is superb, and their pieces are easy to style. If I didn’t have multiple cropped wide-leg jeans in my closet, I’d be tempted to order the Frank and Eileen ones. I really appreciate that they have a resale shop for their garments on their site, too. It feels nice to score Frank and Eileen for less. Their sales of previous season items are usually pretty good as well.

    1. I’m so excited to learn of the resale shop! Thank you. Not only to purchase but to resell a set that is too short for me… should pay for the linen shirt I just bought instead, ha

  6. Very nice pieces. In the 70s wide leg crop pants were called gauchos. Brought back memories when you used that word. I remember my gaucho outfit.

  7. I’ve been seeing this brand on social a lot lately, so I appreciate this post! I like how you show the back of the linen shirt…I never know what to do with the back of a shirt when I front tuck it and it always feels and looks awkward to me. Yours looks great though and gives me hope for the front tuck! I also love that you did the white shirt round-up. I have literally been searching for white shirts in the past few days…it’s good to have new resources, so thank you!

  8. I have a white linen shirt I’ve worn for going on 3 seasons now. My go to and I never really was a button up shirt person either. At first it felt awkward to front tuck and leave the back out, but I’m fine with the look now. Just too much to tuck all the way. This brand is too spendy for me so great that you got to be gifted clothes to post. Very neat. When I was younger Groucho’s was the wide leg pant, but they cut off right below the knee/ above the calf I believe. You look great in the outfits. Thanks for white shirt post. I love white shirts. Will be checking it out. Waiting for an Evereve gauze one to come in the mail.

  9. I’m surprised that F & E don’t offer tall inseams considering the price and the fact that it’s higher quality merchandise. I do love their button-up shirts (they are GREAT), but am disappointed that they seem to cater to only a certain size woman. You look great in their clothes, JoLynne! (That’s one reason I’m such a devoted shopper of JCrew as they make options for tall girls.)

  10. I’m wearing that exact popover today. I have a couple in the jersey material and a couple in the triple fleece. I haven’t bought any of their jeans yet, but I have to admit that I’m tempted. Those look great on you!

    I’ve also been tempted with their Jameson joggers, but I have the opposite problem of a previous commenter – I wish they offered shorter lengths. At 5’0, I feel like I’d probably have to get them hemmed. I’m assuming a good tailor could do that, but I’m not sure the proportions would still look good.

    And I also have never been a button-up person, but I’ve now bought a couple of the Eileen style, including a linen one, and I love it.

  11. The Lauren polo dress looks like the perfect dress to wear to Italy. May I ask what size you wear in this?
    Thank you!

  12. Have you tried their Mary shirtdress? I bought the Distressed Vintage Wash, and I love it. I’ve worn it with camel slides and sneakers. It’s so versatile, comfortable, classic, and modern! I’m thinking about getting the green-striped dress, too. There are so many pieces I want to try (Patrick Popover, one of the travel sets, and the Mini Belfast), but I have to save up some money!
