We're Fashion Editors in Our 20s—These Are the New Trends We Care About


I'm always curious about what's on the shopping lists of various style setters. In fact, I recently inquired about the spring items that currently have the attention of Shopbop's head buyer. Well, next up, I thought I'd get further sartorial inspiration even closer to home. That's right—I turned to a few of my fellow Who What Wear fashion editors.

I specifically asked three of my colleagues that have unique personal styles and are also in their 20s. Of course, age has absolutely nothing to do with what you should or shouldn't wear, but I thought their fresh perspective could be intriguing. This trio sent over a few of the spring picks they're loving at the moment, and I pulled out the top new trends they really care about and can't wait to test out this spring.

Without further ado, keep scrolling to check out the trends a few fashion editors in their 20s are into at the moment, complete with a smattering of inspired shopping picks.

Bubblegum Pink 

"I'm a sucker for colors, and even though I pretend like I'm not that girl that loves pink, I am really living for the bubblegum-pink hue. It feels like such a vibrant color that feels like the antithesis of boring beiges that have dominated seasons past and feels like a revitalization of having fun with fashion. Plus, the hue is easy for anyone to adopt, and a universal trend is something to clamor behind."

Cutout Details

"As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and more and more people are vaccinated, I get giddier about the idea of moving about the world in this season's hottest trend: side cutout details. Frankly, it doesn't get better than being able to flaunt all our beautiful bodies by wearing these intricate cutout pieces. Maybe that's a youthful approach to summer style, but really I think any woman that's comfortable in her skin can make this trend work for her."

Checkerboard Prints

"I'm all about prints, but something about checkerboard print really has been high on my radar lately, think because it meets the middle ground of fun and versatile. I've seen warped, colored, classic black and white checkers. I'm into it all and am excited to incorporate more of it into my wardrobe."

Craft-Like Jewelry

"I'm 100% here for craft-like jewelry. I'm talking colorful beads, smiley faces with pearls, the whole nine yards. Many brands like Notte Jewelry and Roxanne Assoulin have found ways to bring that same nostalgic feel with elements of modern jewelry design, so it doesn't actually look like I'm wearing the same pieces from elementary school."

Relaxed Silhouettes

"Really relaxed silhouettes have become my new go-to. Baggy jeans, oversize button-downs, and slouchy knee-high boots are now my unofficial uniform, and I'm not mad about it."
