When it comes to celebrities who prefer to stay out of the spotlight, Emma Watson is one name that springs to mind. We totally respect her wish for privacy, but it does mean that when she does make an appearance, all eyes are on her. Even more so because she always looks super chic.

That was certainly the case when Emma attended the Soho House Awards in New York earlier this month. Putting an elegant twist on the naked dress trend, the actress stunned in a subtly see-through Christian Dior dress that featured a crochet bodice and sheer pleated maxi skirt.

'Naked' dressing has been big news this year, but for her latest look Emma instead opted to channel two other trending aesthetics: preppy chic and stealth wealth. It's a timelessly sophisticated style that we're definitely hoping to emulate this season.

Spotted in Milan during the city's fashion week with her beloved dog Sofia in tow, Emma's monochromatic Prada ensemble consisted of a crisp white button-down shirt and a navy blue mini skirt with large gold buttons decorating its front. A white ribbed knit was draped around her shoulders.

As for accessories, Emma wore white patent kitten heel slingbacks on her feet and carried the Prada Bianco Arqué Leather Shoulder bag.

The office-ready, school uniform-esque outfit perfectly tapped into preppy chic, especially in the way Emma had styled her jumper as opposed to wearing it properly. Similarly, the muted colour palette and luxurious fabrics (come on, she's wearing Prada) nailed the stealth wealth, quiet luxury look as championed on Succession.

Her choice of a white bag and shoes further emphasised the latter point. It's not the first time we've seen Emma rock all-white accessories. In fact, none other than the Princess of Wales uses the same styling trick, using white accessories to give her outfit a polished and elevated finish.

Fancy imitating Emma's preppy chic/quiet luxury style this autumn? Here are some of the mini skirts we're shopping now to help us do just that...
