Personally, I think the way to be fashionable is to be timeless. Wear things that are flattering to you and speak to your personality. Buy classic lines and colors. Add one or two trendy items. Trends come and go, and to me a lot of these trends read as ‘young’…and now that I’m 40, I don’t think it’s attractive to dress like a teen. It’s more important to have a signature style. I have a friend who wears all-natural fabrics, lose to the skin, in neutral colors (traveler, tea lover, education professional). I have another friend who favors overalls and shirts with funny pictures (scientist, nature enthusiast, higher education). For myself, I’m rocking florals, pastels, classic black, and dresses/skirts (historian, educator, traveler, romantic/cottagecore personality). While we switch it up, it’s instantly obvious that something is or isn’t our style. 

Just wear what you want and tell people it’s French. 😉

I went clothes shopping yesterday and it seems like skinny jeans are still in. What is also in is what I call highwaters – pants that end before your ankle. I got a pair, but since I’m shorter they’re not too highwaterish. As for hair, foil highlights seem to be out, balayage is in. But good luck getting my hair to part in the middle, it won’t do that. Off center is how it rolls.

I’m with your daughter on all the above

And yes, Y2K is making a comeback! Google ‘Delaney Child’s outfits’, she’s a fashion influencer that I like following on instagram. Her page is a good reference for what’s in right now

To answer more specifically, I think Apple watches are pretty classic right now. Ring stacking is a major yes. And yellow gold is what’s hot for jewelry but there’s nothing wrong with some white or rose gold.

Chunky sneakers are still a yes, and those platform slides are making a big comeback if you want to be extra trendy. Overall, 90’s inspired is still going strong

This is what I know to be in style: 

Mom jeans – #flatassftw

Wide leg jeans – if the come to the ankles and look like you are wading though a stream, you’re doing it right 

One of the two styles above with lots of holes 

Middle Parts 

Fluffy eyebrows brushed upward – shoot for the heaves 

Long ass nails – if you can’t zip up your own pants, you’re doing it right 

Blush and contour out higher up on the cheekbone to lift the face – I actually like this one 

Chunky sneakers – the uglier the better 

Socks showing – the more ridiculous looking the better 

Crop Tops – made popular for all shapes and sizes / actual body positivity coming through 

Scrunchies and thick hair clips – if you look 7 years old, you’re doing it right 

Chunky sandals (often paired with socks) – the 90s called and they are totally back

Lots of rings on mutiple fingers

Furry slippers with a back strap are very popular…not going to lie, I love mine from Bared

Attire with cute saying are out – don’t even dare live, laugh, love! 

Rose gold is out 

Side parts are out and automatically label you as a millennial 

Ugg boots and boots with fur at the top are out 

Skinny jeans are out – they can pry them from my cold dead fingers 

Apparently the millennial obsession with fall is also out

Cheug is a new word for millennials and our style trends that are out. Look up Cheuglife in IG
