I frequent Dana Marie’s stylish feed, @daintydanamarie, on the regular. She’s an influencer who’s over 50 and lives in Chicago. Of course, age has absolutely nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear, but her more experienced sartorial point of view is quite intriguing to me. I also grew up in the Midwest, so her sense of style for her life in Chicago is also of interest.
I recently asked her about the 2021 trends she’s been wearing. Next up, I wanted to get a sense of the new trends she recently added to her closet. Basically, she touched up her wardrobe by mixing in five new items. It’s these pieces that have more or less taken her vibe to the next level this season.
