Hi Bees! Long time lurker. Lately I’ve been living under a rock in terms of what’s going on in the fashion world. Partly pandemic, partly my own stuff that was going on even before that. It’s safe to assume my fashion sense is at least 5 years outdated. Can you tell me things that have become less or more popular during that time? Like:
Designer accessories like umbrellas with a designer logo on them
Designer handbags… if so, who’s a really hot designer right now?
Watches, are we still at very large Michael Kors and Apple watches?
Metals, does rose hold still rule? Hows yellow gold? Platinum or silver?
Stacking rings, and rings on the top part of your finger, still the best?
Clothes, i heard Y2K was coming back, is that really true?
Hair, are we still doing big wavy curls?
Fanny packs, are many people really wearing these?
What else should i know? Im basically a fashion alien right now. I dont want to be wearing the equivalent of dark lipliner and light lips when the moment has clearly passed XD
Thabks for your help bees!

lol…no centre parts and curtain bangs for me either. I also prefer the look of skinny jeans on me and mum jeans and wide legs can stay back in the past where they belong for all I care! I’ve enjoyed the 7/8th skinny pant length trend thats been going on for years as I’m short and it meant not having to take pants up for the best part of a decade! 😩

Skinny jeans UNTIL I DIE! I’ve been wearing them since they were called stretch jeans in the 90’s 😂

Fancy jammies and slippers seem to be the thing round here. Hair, make up, nails done. Cute jammies and Ugg slippers. The odd time I leave the house that’s what I see people wearing.

This is what I see most often:
Wide leg ripped jeans and a crop top with a large zip up jacket. Sometimes I still see baggy sweatpants instead, but idk how long chav chic is gonna hold on. Pair with chunky sneakers.
For nails, a lot of color-tipped French manis.

Bear-attack jeans. The more holes the fancier you are.

I recently read an article about how not to look old – I am 26 and feel too young to say this but I was surprised by some of the points.
We all know by now that skinny jeans and side parts are out, but so are no-show socks and floaty “open” layers (such as an Eileen Fisher-style cardigan with no buttons). Socks, if worn, should be meant to be seen, and all cardigans should have some sort of fastening mechanism involved.
I have moved my part and am phasing out my skinny jeans, but The Young will never talk me into releasing my beloved collection of organic cotton no show socks!

I’m 40 but I can tell you what my teen daughter is wearing:
Wide leg or Mom jeans.
Fanny packs worn like a cross body bag
Floral button down dresses are making a comeback (I’m so excited) as is much of late 90’s/early 2000’s fashion

Wearing what makes you feel awesome, flatters your shape, and fits your lifestyle is always in style. I’m keeping my side part. And my skinny jeans. And it will be a cold day in hell when you see me strapping a fanny pack across my boobs or wearing a scrunchie again. I’m 36 happily married with two kids and a successful career – I don’t care what teenagers think of me.

Ahhaha, I feel like I’ve seen way too many articles about how Gen x, y, z, alpha, boomers differ from one another in terms of fashion, your nickname reminded me of that.
I have no clue what people are doing, I’ve just been trying to get into clothes. (to many, I really can’t)

I think fashion is so subjective and it’s important to figure out what your personal style is. When you’re out and about take note of outfits and things you like the look of. Also “trends” are different to classic pieces. I try and incorporate some seasonal trends into my outfits but I don’t invest much in them because they date quickly. My hairstyle is definetly dated and I’m considering going for a middle part with some waves/texture added xo

lol…my great aunt grew up during war and depression and migrated to leave that behind. She’s 96 and her great granddaughter rocked up in fashionable ripped jeans and she lost her nut because to her ripped pants meant firstly you were very poor and couldn’t afford new pants and secondly she wasnt happy about the deep cuts under the butt cheeks because nobody but your husband should be seeing your butt cheeks! 😂 The next family get together, my cousins all went to this place in Melbourne call dejour jeans that basically tailor jeans that they make on premises to your actual perfect fit. They also distress them and cut slashes in them for you too. They all got a pair of jeans there and got lots of cuts on the legs and ones under the butt cheeks to rile up their great grandmother! She was fuming 🤣

My 10 year old niece told me that my side part and flannel were old fashioned. Oh well.
