Anyone care to share....
"Everyone" does this and "No one" does that....
I know I can do what I like but what I like is to be mostly up to date!!
How do you all know not to wear this shoe anymore, run buy that brand, or nobody is wearing straight, curly, bouncy etc., everyone gets this. I do have Instagram but I'm still flummoxed.
Please help!!

Go to a local frum clothing store, sheitel macher, shoe store, hosiery store, etc. Every season, or every few weeks

Just kidding LOL

We are not telling you. If you know and too many people know than we are no longer special and cool.
Sorry. I need to protect my social status.

You know I am kidding. I dress out of Costco and wear the same things for years.

You're supposed to either know, or have a teenage daughter.

At my age, nobody cares. We can be stylishly out of style but at least we are not wasting our old clothes.
For shoes, I wear clodhoppers. They are great for old feet. I wear them almost everywhere.
Do a mitzvah for the environment, save the world, and be like me; out of style.

Take a look around. Pay attention to what styles people are wearing in shul, at work, etc. Also, look to see which styles keep showing up in display windows.

When all else fails, you can always ask what's "in" on imamother. I see multiple posts each season asking if X or Y is trendy, so you are definitely not alone on this.

I am a SAHM and rarely get out so I rarely know. I usually feel out-of-date. Because I show up to the one simcha I have that season and see that they’re mostly all wearing xyz.
Recently I started going shopping and strolling more on the main streets, and you can pick up a lot in a day of out and about.
Also, I watch my young-married neighbors. I know almost every single item is fashionable and current and chosen with intent according to style.

Tell me abt it. I consider myself somebody who loves nice things. Hates nebby. I don't spend alot because I don't have the $$ to spend, but I have a knack of dressing my kids adorable and pretty with the $ I can spend. I really can say so. And here my teenager tells me last week "but mommy you don't understand these days". I love "what's in" but I also love practical and classy. So yeah I guess I'll have to go dial 1-888-YOUR TEEN.

That's ME but for my kids I'm very different. I need my kids to be up to date for the most part. It doesn't have to be this season. It can be last season but no further than that. (lemme see how many hugs I'll get on this one)

Quote from my 13 year old daughter yesterday-
“ no offense but the cardigan you’re wearing is really meant to be a little longer. It would probably look better on me.”

Me too

I like to be unique
I don’t like having everything that everyone else has
I live OOT, but still if I see it on everyone I don’t like it for me anymore.
Example- I was redoing the floor in my house.
EVERYONE and EVERYWHERE is using a tile that mimics white marble with grey veins
I like it but it’s so overdone I refused to get it

I’ve recently went through my mom’s old jewelry
I was gifted a pair of vintage gold button earrings
I haven’t seen them on anyone.
But to me they are gorgeous.

OTOH- it makes it difficult to shop or someone give me a gift since I don’t like most of the things out there

I make a safe bet that whatever the stores are selling this season must be in

Same here! I'm wearing clothes from 5 years ago, that aren't in the best shape. And I just don't care.

But my kids need brand new up to date clothes every season. I need them to look cute and put together.

For the record, 99% of the people wearing midi high waisted skirts, tucked in ribbed turtlenecks, and those loafers looked ridiculous. I normally like to wear the “in” thing but this winter I gave up! I am young, have a good figure, but I said I got to put my foot down so where! Don’t worry I got a lot of compliments on my “old fashioned” clothing
