After telling us what words make someone 'posh' and how to have an upmarket Christmas, high society magazine Tatler have now released their list of things that will make you 'upper class' in 2019.

Someone grab the salt and pinch it generously around like salt bae, because there's an actual bullet pointed list of things that will and will not class you as higher in society next year.

Tatler outline what makes someone "new-U", aka new-upper class, or "non-U", meaning non-upper class. Upper class things include drinking at lunch, having a much older best friend, and being into Astrology. Non upper class things include using tissues, mouth wash and "most" white wine. Er, we like all of these things tbh.

Here's a selection of the things that will make you upper class in 2019:

  • Having a driver
  • Politeness
  • Eating sweets
  • Having a job
  • Eating bread
  • Champagne
  • Loving your parents
  • Athens
  • Being faithful
  • Living in central London
  • Nicknames
  • Reading books

Here's a selection of things that will make you not upper class in 2019:

  • Dietary requirements
  • The word 'posh'
  • Facebook
  • Elaborate gin and tonics
  • Tinder
  • iPads
  • Athleisure wear
  • Saying, ‘I’m all right thanks’ when offered a drink
  • Wet wipes
  • Dips
  • Talking about yourself
  • Most white wines

Dips? Tinder? GIN AND TONICS? Our love of humous and guacamole puts us well and truly into this category. And proud.
