We're Influencers With a 31-Year Age Difference—These Accessories Are Staples


We turn to Melissa Meyers and her daughter, Rachel Meyers, on the regular for sartorial inspiration. Both mother and daughter are fashion influencers that live in California. As a result, they have Instagram feeds that are filled with top-notch outfit ideas that are both chic and easy. There's actually a 31-year age difference between them, but they both wear similar pieces to complete their go-to looks because, of course, age has absolutely nothing to do with what you should or shouldn't wear.

Today, we thought we'd gain further insight into the accessories they love. Essentially, the accessories coming your way are considered true staples in the eyes of the Meyers women. These versatile items can help complete a look and take said vibe to the next level.

Below, you'll uncover a range of imagery that showcases the must-have accessories, complete with a smattering of shopping picks if you, too, are interested in trying out one of their staple pieces.
