I've Lived to See Over 50 Years of Trends and Stand Behind These 3

“I’m 53, and I feel great,” proclaimed the woman with style the entire Who What Wear team is envious of, Grece Ghanem. We always talk about how fashion has no age limit—wear what you want when you want at the age you want, period—so today we’re here to bring you style advice from someone who has lived to see a lot of style. There were tons of questions I could have asked Grece, but I tried to keep it plain and simple. I wanted her opinion on trends. After being alive for over 50 years, which trends are the ones that have stood the test of time? Which ones keep coming back around or better yet, have never gone out of style?

As someone who is more than addicted to the ever-shifting seasonal trends, I could definitely use some grounding. That’s where Grece comes in. She came back to me with the three trends she stands behind after seeing (and wearing) it all. Curious which styles she deems indestructible and why? Read on to discover her bulletproof list and to see images of Grece rocking each of the trends she supports wholeheartedly.

“The return from the ’60s of florals, plaid, and of course, the imminent return of the animal print. It is fun to mix and match whether in bold stripes or dramatic patterns.”

Floral + gingham is our new print-mixing aesthetic. 
Quite possibly the chicest way to wear animal print? While standing next to a motorcycle.

“I always had a penchant for elevated basics because I believe you can easily elevate these pieces to glam status. In this case, that’s denim on denim. I used to pull off denim on denim in my 20s… I added a photo from those times!”
