I'm 56, and My Daughter Is 24—We Love These Trends Because They're Under $100

Melissa Meyers and her daughter Rachel both have inspiring feeds that feature chic outfit ideas and shopping picks. While they each certainly wear a range of items, they love finding stylish, affordable pieces to complete their looks. On that note, the mother-daughter duo actually shared with us the specific trends they’re loving at the moment. And given that age is just a number and should have nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear, they noted that they both live in the trends despite their 32-year age difference.

The trends in question are go-tos because of their versatile and forward nature and because they can actually be bought on the more affordable side. As a preview, we’re talking about everything from easy dresses that go with just about any shoe silhouette to chic layering items that can bring an extra dimension to an outfit.
