Dressing for your age isn’t a concept I subscribe to. The wonderful thing about fashion is that it’s one of the purest forms of expression, and that should never feel restrictive. As far as preaching to you about what you should and shouldn’t wear when you reach a certain age, that’s not what Who What Wear is or ever will be about. If you like something and it makes you feel good, then that’s what you should be wearing—end of story.
Still, I understand that there are specific items those from certain age brackets tend to gravitate towards, whether they mean to or not. For example, I wore a lot more heels in my teens and 20s than I do now in my 30s. But that’s not why we’re here. Instead, I want to talk about the fashion trends that typically appeal to all ages, and I’m not just talking about wardrobe basics.
Below, I’ve zeroed in on the statement pieces and trends I think look great on anyone, be they 25 or 65. From the new top fashion types can’t stop wearing to the modern take on perhaps the most classic piece of jewellery, all of the trends I’ve laid out feel distinctly 2021. Scroll on to see eight fashion trends that are worth trying at every age.
