20 Signs That You’re Really, Really Posh

Entertainment, Fashion, Funny, Lists, Other, Parenting, Social

For most of us, indulging in fine dining and going on blowout holidays is something that we do very rarely in our lives. Our childhood was a series of bad haircuts and even worse school dances and we didn’t exactly adjust gracefully into the world of adulthood. For others, though, things are a little different. There are a group of people out there who are undeniably posh and try as they might, they can’t hide it from the rest of us. But how do you know if you belong to the elite? Have no fear, we’ve taken a look at the other side and have all the information you ever need in order to spot a posh person.

You Call Champagne “Champers”

If champagne isn’t served at a bar, then there’s no way you will even step foot inside. Anyone who doesn’t understand why champers is necessary is not really worth wasting any time on.

You Wear Red Trousers

Blue jeans died a long time ago and if you haven’t completed your look with a pair of red trousers, the people around you know that something is wrong. Red just seems so much more fitting for someone of your status.

You Own 20 Different Track Suits

You have a separate wardrobe dedicated to your track suits and whilst others might scoff at your preference for comfort, the fact is that they’re all made of the finest, hand-spun cashmere. No chafing for you.

You Own A Gazebo

When you think of people who don’t own a gazebo, you let out a little shudder. You can think of nothing better than sipping a glass of champers under a gazebo and watching the world go by.

You Went To School On Saturdays

You went to the finest establishment around and therefore, had to be schooled on Saturdays. Whilst you hated it at the time, you now pity the people who had a 5 day school week and all of the extra exam practice they missed out on.

You Had A Nanny

With high flying parents, you needed extra supervision as a youngster and it came in the form of a nanny. You probably spent more time with your nanny than anyone else and if you were really posh, they probably spoke to you in French.

You Still Wear Ugg Boots

You never got the memo that Ugg boots are no longer cool and instead, team them with every outfit you have. You have a boot for every occasion and only take them off when you’re abroad or sunning yourself by the pool.

You Play Polo On The Weekend

Polos are more than just candy to you and you can think of nothing better than playing a match or two over the weekend. You pity the people who don’t understand the rules and look down on fans of other, more rowdy sports.

You Wear Blazers On Nights out

In your mind, it is completely unacceptable to wear anything but the smartest clothes on nights out and as a result, you always come equipped with a blazer. For extra points, you team them with chinos and boat shoes.

Your Nickname Is Your Surname

Hearing your real name always catches you off guard; throughout your childhood, everyone called you a variation on your surname and as an adult, you have to catch yourself when you make new introductions.

Your Parents Call You Baby Names

You never got over the baby phase with your parents and as a result, they still call you the names you had as an infant. You return the favor by addressing them in the same way you did as a child.

You Regularly Quote Latin

Your school had one of the most rigorous Latin courses around and there is rarely a day in which it isn’t appropriate to bring out a quote or two. Anyone that doesn’t understand you is quickly knocked off your friendship list.

You’ve Worn Pajamas In Public

Comfort is everything and if you’re popping to the shops, you feel no need to change out of your pajamas. Usually a onesie, you have a different look for each day of the week and can think of nothing better than flaunting them.

You Mingle With Celebrities

Your school was home to at least 3 major celebrities and as a result, you have direct access to all of the right circles. You’re embarrassed by how impressed your new friends are of your inner circle knowledge and would die if you ever had to introduce them.

You’ve Been On A Gap Year

Going straight into college is something completely unheard of in your circles; before committing to 4 years of study, you promptly took yourself to Thailand, cut off all communication and partied for an entire year.

You Ride In A Helicopter

Everyone knows that helicopters are so much more convenient than passenger jets and if you want to make a quick trip elsewhere, you can think of nothing easier than just popping in the helicopter.

Your Parents Take You Hunting

You’ve been hunting since a very young age and can’t understand what all of the fuss is about. There is nothing better to you than an early morning hunt and the thrill of the chase on horseback.

You Never Take Public Transport

The cramped spaces, the exposure to germs, the heat; everything about public transport makes your skin crawl. You have a driver to take you wherever you should please and when they’re not available, there’s always the helicopter.

You Know How To Ride

You’ve been horse riding since before you could walk and nothing feels more natural to you. You think of yourself as a horse whisperer and cannot stand people who don’t like the animals.

You Pop Your Collar

Popping your collar adds instant pizazz to an outfit and you can’t believe that more people don’t do it. When you’re feeling really good, you layer two shirts together and sport a double pop.
