I chat about the latest in style with my mother quite often. She loves fashion and is always intrigued by the latest trends to see how they could fit within her more classic wardrobe. On that note, I’m also always intrigued in regards to the latest looks that end up catching her eye. Because while age clearly has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear, she is over 60, and her more experienced sartorial point of view consistently interests me. Well, over the holidays, we ended up chatting about the trends she might be ready to try in the coming year. Basically, I rattled off some of the key looks I’m loving, and she stopped me when one sounded particularly appealing.
In the end, there were six popular trends that my mom is most interested in going for in 2021. For the most part, the looks in question are all easy in nature and could mix and match flawlessly with her existing wardrobe. So with all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out the trends and items my mom is into, complete with a testimonial from her and visual inspiration from fashion people. If something intrigues you, you’ll also uncover inspired shopping picks sprinkled throughout as well.
"I used to wear knit polos back in the day, but I haven't whipped one out in awhile. I've been eyeing the look all season (I think I mentioned to you before), and I'm now ready to officially try a fresh style."
"Similar to my love of the knit set is my newfound love of hoodies. I know I'm late to the game here, but I never really wore them before. Crewneck sweatshirts, yes, but not hoodies. I think they're easy and fashionable."
