Ready for a digestible roundup of stunning trends? Because these ladies ahead are the queens of dressing to the nines day in and day out. Whenever I am in need of a sartorial pick-me-up, I always turn to two of my favorite It girls who just so happen to be over 45. To me, age is irrelevant when it comes to fashion and style, and the below images will prove exactly that. When it comes to the women’s style featured here, it is clear that they always pay attention to the finer details of an outfit. After taking a deep dive into their recent looks, I was able to identify five trends that resulted in a stunning outfit every time.
Ahead, discover the stunning trends these women are taking a strong liking to right now. In this context, stunning doesn’t have to mean unapproachable or “fancy.” Instead, the stunning nature of each trend is revealed in the little things like the architectural chain strap on a handbag or the rich-looking addition of a milky white coat.

Being cooped up at home can bring up a lot of feelings. Our world is currently in a state of self-isolation and social distancing due to the coronavirus—something we are not typically accustomed to as a culture. While we are all attempting to band together as a society to do our part by staying home, that doesn’t mean we can’t get creative with alternative ways to connect to one another. That being said, our Who What Wear team was curious to see how some of our favorite celebrities were spending their time indoors. Scratch that—we were curious to see what they were wearing while spending their time indoors.
So we went ahead and DM’d a handful of celebrities asking them to send us a photo of their at-home outfit of the day. Whether they were working from home or simply spending time with family, the seven stars below were kind enough to send us some exclusive photos of their lounging looks.
From Lucy Hale’s extremely relatable sweats-and-slippers ensemble to Tracee Ellis Ross’s cozy jumpsuit vibe, we’re here today to show you that you at home are not alone. These celebs are right there with you, and they are giving you some stylish outfit ideas while they’re at it.
For some women, lingerie is used only for special occasions, tucked away in the back of a drawer somewhere, and definitely not invested in on a regular basis. Bring this up with Journelle’s former CEO, Lyn Lewis, and prepare for a lecture on how this mentality is oh so wrong. In her expert opinion, lingerie should be treated like any other fashion item, especially considering you do wear lingerie every day. (Yes, even the pretty, sheer lace kind.)
Just as it is with ready-to-wear fashion, there are trends that come and go within the lingerie market, and Lewis was so generous as to share her breadth of knowledge in the world of all things delicate and pretty with us here. Whether you’re still too timid to wear this kind of lingerie on a regular basis or are on the hunt for the next best piece to fill your negligee collection, we suggest you pay attention to the hottest trends in lingerie, according to Lewis. Ready to be wowed by the next best thing you’ll wear underneath it all?

With professional photoshoots canceled, many celebrities are trading the soundstage for the bedroom, including Laura Harrier who did a whole shoot for Who What Wear over Zoom. Blackpink’s Jennie is the latest to get in on the home photoshoot trend, posing in nine different outfits on Instagram, where she shared the images with her 26 million fans. The idea behind the shoot was nine ways to style the sunglasses from her collab with Gentle Monsters. Given how quickly the series of photos went viral, we have to imagine it was a resounding success.
Mixed in with luxury designers like Balenciaga and Marine Serre were affordable pieces like Delia’s by Dolls Kill Whirls of Wonder Dress ($23) and Unif Rox Top ($68). Scroll down to see how she styled the affordable pieces and shop similar items.
There’s no doubt my sweats, leggings, and slippers are getting a lot of action at home these days due to the current circumstances, but there’s one item I’ve been luxuriating in more than ever before: my cozy bathrobe.
I’ve always been a fan of a plush bathrobe, even before quarantine. I like to slip on before and after I take a bath and it’s been my go-to to throw on as an extra layer of warmth when I pick up my toddler from his crib in the morning. I also wear one when I have breakfast on my little balcony, get ready for the day (when that was a regular occurrence), and when I spend a low-key night watching Netflix. So there’s no question that for the last six weeks staying at home, it has served as my comfy companion through these uncertain times.
I’m particularly fond of robes that make you feel a little extra “special”—particularly ones made of opulent and plush fabrics such as silk or soft pima cotton or robes featuring playful prints and vintage-inspired silhouettes. It’s the little things that spark joy, and bathrobes have an uncanny way of lifting our spirits even on the most exhausting days. So if you want to get in on some at-home bathrobe action, then scroll below as I share my favorite robes that are the perfect balance of cozy and chic. Fair warning: You might never want to take them off.
I have a fashion editor confession: Sometimes I forget about ASOS. When it comes to affordable retailers, I usually zero in on H&M, so I haven’t actually scrolled through ASOS’s collection in a while (except for when Kate Middleton wore a dress from the retailer that quickly sold out). But when one of our editors alerted us to a sitewide ASOS sale, I volunteered to make a sale edit for our readers. When doing my research, I was actually blown away by the incredibly chic dresses from ASOS—and I currently have more than a few in my own virtual shopping cart.
ASOS is currently 20% off sitewide when you use the code HEYTWENTY. You can certainly rely on ASOS for cool basics like ribbed knit dresses, but I was really impressed with the retailer’s more trend-forward pieces. Think puff sleeves, cool prints, pretty back details, and fun textures. The retailer is already pretty affordable, but the sitewide sale is definitely the cherry on top.

Not only is loungewear now having a full-fledged movement, but sweatpants have made their worldwide comeback this year. While yoga pants were once the go-to essential for put-together looks that didn’t skimp on comfort, it’s all about outfits with joggers now—and you won’t believe how stylish they are. We know what you’re thinking: Sweatpants can be chic? And to that, we say can definitively say that it’s possible.
In fact, with a few styling tips from your favorite It girls, you might just want to wear sweatpants every day. To see exactly how fashion girls are wearing their joggers, we’ve pulled together 13 looks that will have you ready to pull on sweats more often. Check them all out below.
