My 60-Year-Old Mom Is Flagging These 2020 Trends to Try This Year
If you’re not yet familiar with my mother yet, let me give you a quick rundown: Nancy’s a 60-year-old Midwestern woman who’s interested in fashion but doesn’t always step out of her sartorial comfort zone. Sure, she’s down for testing out fresh trends that skew on the classic side to incorporate into the timeless wardrobe she’s been curating for years, but it takes a bit of a nudge to convince her to try some of those new, fashion-crowd-favorite looks.
But as she mentioned to me over the holidays, she’s actually ready to give her wardrobe another little refresh to, as she said, “kick-off 2020 with a bang.” So I sat down with her and went over the 2020 trends that I’m coveting and that could also work well for her. My mother then stopped me (as she does often mid-conversation when she likes or doesn’t like something) when a specific look piqued her interest.
Ultimately, it was those fashion-forward yet highly wearable trends that seemed to be the front-runners for Nancy. While my mom is 60 and is excited to try said looks this year, she was especially into this group of trends because they can actually work for any of her friends who are all of different ages. Because remember, age is just a number and has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear.
So without further ado, keep scrolling to check out the 2020 essentials my mom is flagging, complete with street style inspiration. Plus, check out her notes and shopping picks for each trend as well.
