You can only call yourself a posh girl if you own these 38 things

No.12 a North Face puffer


Though there are 13 different types of posh people and posh girls in particular like to think they are all individual and follow no trends, there’s no denying posh girls are essentially all the same blonde, tanned, flare-wearing girls.

Most posh girls own the exact same items which make up the rich girl uniform. I’m talking Vivienne Westwood necklaces, mini scarves, trench coats, and wide legs trousers.  Maybe it’s the years of wearing the exact same at school that makes them want to still dress like clones of each other?

Regardless of whether they’re edgy posh or basic posh – these girls will always have a vintage Adidas sweatshirt, a tube top and a Longchamp bag ready to go. It’s a universal sign of having money in the bank. And if you don’t have at least three quarters of these items, then you really can’t yourself a posh girl:

1. Vintage sweatshirts

Adidas, Ralph Lauren, Reebok. They will be worn on repeat and they will all be from Depop.

2. Cable knit jumper

Probably a Ralph Lauren one let’s be honest, which will worn when visiting her second home in the country or by the sea.

3. Sunday lunch outfit

This is an exact formula of skirt, boots and a turtle neck jumper and everything will be from Zara. An obligatory photo with prosecco in hand will be taken of course.

4. Halter neck top

What else do posh girls wear on a night out?

5. Tube top

Even more basic than a halter.

6. Vintage tracksuits

Who cares if they stink? You WILL look cool walking around the library as if you’ve just finished athletics practice.

7. Wide-leg trousers

First came the Joni jeans, then came the flares, and now it’s all about the wide leg. Say what you want about the posh girl, but she certainly evolves.

8. Slazenger skort

Worn for anything other than actual tennis.

9. Fiorucci anything

But most likely the jeans or sweatshirt.

10. Gymshark leggings

They probably go to Exeter and spend an obsessive amount of time in the gym working on their bum.

11. A trenchcoat

The intended vibe: Eat, sleep, slay repeat. The actual vibe: Sherlock Holmes.

12. A North Face or Canada Goose Jacket

Depending on how much you don’t give a fuck about animals, you’ll probably get a Canada Goose jacket. If you have a conscience you will get a North Face puffa, which will of course be the black one.

13. A Longchamp bag of some variety

Mainly seen during college, a posh girl will have the tote in black, navy and beige.

14. The Louis Vuitton checked brown bag

For the Fiat 500 posh girls, all the essentials have to be carried in this.

15. Air Force 1s (dirty)

This doesn’t require an explanation – every single posh girl has a pair of dirty Air Force 1s.

16. UGG slippers

I’m talking proper slippers or sliders but UGG boots also apply. The slippers are worn around their home in Surrey which is complete with an AGA and weekly Ocado deliveries.

17. Hunter wellies

How else are you gonna walk around your estate?

18. Tiffany anything but probably the heart necklace

This is for the basic posh girls who go around collecting those little blue boxes like it’s their only job. Which in reality, it probably is.

19. A Vivienne Westwood necklace

The edgier posh girls wouldn’t be seen dead without this necklace.

20. Gold hoop earrings that don’t go green

No one knows where they get these chunky hoops from, we’re just gonna have to let it go alright.

21. Headbands

Probably from Anthropologie.

22. Those skinny scarves

It’s giving Groovy Chick but absolutely zero warmth.

23. A bucket hat

Potentially tie-dye, nearly always from Urban Outfitters and worn on every single night out without fail.

24. A MacBook

These will literally be chucked about, drinks spilt on them posh girls – don’t really give a shit. But obvs they couldn’t lose it because it has all their photos from Bali.

They will be used as the laptop to get the music on for pres and they will spend every lecture tapping away on it planning the next night out.

25. A Fiat 500 or a Mini

Look no one wants to admit to being Fiat 500 driver and if anyone finds out you’ll blurt the classic excuse that your parents wanted to buy you a safe car. And not because you thought it was cool when you were 17.

26. A horse

Only true posh girls have their own horse and spent their childhood weekends at dressage contests.

27. A dog

It’s the breed of dog that makes it posh. Labradors, retrievers and spaniels are the classic posh dogs. It’s a Cocker Spaniel if you live in the country and a  King Charles Cavalier if you live in the city. They will all be called Monty.

28. Disposable camera photos

These will be all over her uni bedroom wall and will include pics from festivals, summer holidays to Italy and her first nights out.

29. AirPods

How else are you gonna show the world you’re rich?

30. A Chilly’s water bottle

All posh girls will be seen wandering around the library with this bottle and their Mac, stopping to chat to every single person they know.

31. Keep Cup

Most likely the clear one with the cork.

32. Big number silver or gold foil balloons for your 18th or 21st birthday

An Instagram birthday post is literally not complete without these, what is the point in even having a birthday if you don’t get that shot?

33. Glossier makeup

Posh girls fall into one of two categories – the girls who love makeup and the ones who claim to never wear makeup. They’re lying – they’re wearing Boy Brow and Cloud Paint.

34. Charlotte Tilbury makeup

The other posh girls love Charlotte Tilbury, Fenty and all the Urban Decay they can get their hands on. And you will be waiting two hours for them to get ready at pres.

35. A Jo Malone or Diptyque candle

No one else’s uni bedroom is smelling this good.

36. An effortless tan

Yes, it could be from their holiday on the South of France or they’ve been putting on fake tan since the age of 12 at their all girls private school and are now elite experts. Either way you’ll never know.

37. Best-selling feminist books

Florence Given is their god and their bookshelves are full with aesthetic feminist books that they will never read.

38. A NutriBullet

Yes even at uni they will be sipping on that green juice.
