Top 10 Posts of 2020

Good morning, and happy New Year’s Eve! 🥂 We have absolutely no plans tonight, except I have a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge that I plan to enjoy. How about you?

Today I’m sharing my Top 10 Posts of 2020, and I was actually surprised to see some of these in this list! You’ll have to tell me what you think.

According to my Google Analytics, these are the ten most highly trafficked posts that I published this year. I’m listing them in typical Top Ten order, with the most popular post at the end.

There seems to be a theme here, and I think you’ll see it as well. I can definitely tell what types of posts you all prefer!

#10. Fall Wardrobe Essentials

Fall Wardrobe Essentials 2020

This post is one I update and republish each year, and it’s always well-received. It’s a great starting point if you’re restructuring or rebuilding your wardrobe, and depending on your climate, it could be relevant for winter as well.

#9. 2020 Swimsuit Guide

2020 swimsuit guide: swimsuits for women over 40

This is another post I update and republish every year, and I always get requests for it. It’s one of the more time consuming posts I do, so I’m glad it’s popular!

#8. Casual Alternatives to Shorts

Casual Alternatives to Shorts for Women Over 40

I wrote this one a few years ago and updated it and republished for 2020. A lot of women over 40 don’t like to wear shorts, so I tried to come up with a lot of other options that are still practical and comfortable.

#7. Old Outfits Updated for 2020

Old Outfits Updated for 2020

I’m hoping to do another one of these next month. I need to go back through my archives and find some winter outfits to recreate for 2021.

#6. How to Cut Your Jeans for a DIY Raw Hem

Fashion DIY Tutorial: How To Cut Your Jeans for a Raw Hem

In my opinion, the best denim trend going is the raw hem. The length of your pants can make or break an outfit, and this makes it easy to “alter” your jeans at home for free!

#5. 20 Fall Outfits to Copy Right Now

20 CASUAL FALL OUTFIT IDEAS FOR 2020

I love doing these posts because I can use pictures from my archives, and there’s no need to buy anything new or get gussied up for a photo shoot.

Fall is especially fun because there are so many layering possibilities, but I’ll definitely do one for spring as well.

#4. Understanding the Rule Of Thirds

make a better outfit by understanding rule of thirds

I get asked about this all the time, so I finally wrote a post about it! Not all outfits have to follow this rule to be flattering, but understanding this concept can help explain why an outfit might look a little off.

#3. Women’s Pant Lengths Demystified

WOMEN’S PANT STYLES AND HEM LENGTHS DEMYSTIFIED

And this is yet another older post I updated and republished this year. I was getting a lot of questions about pant styles and hem lengths, and I remembered that I had this post, so I tweaked it for today’s trends. It’s crazy how much styles have changed since I originally wrote it in 2018.

#2. Dos and Don’ts for Wearing Shorts

Dos and Don'ts for Wearing Shorts

Wow, I’m kind of surprised to see this one rank so high! Shorts really are a hot topic. I guess I need to remember that.

And the post that came in First Place this year…

#1. Are Skinny Jeans Out of Style?

Are Skinny Jeans Out of Style?

Possibly the most controversial fashion topic of 2020, the skinny jean… I maintain that skinny jeans can look stylish and on trend if styled in a modern way, but I’ve also been around long enough to know that nothing stays in style forever, and I see the straighter styles making headway.

A sure-fire way to get stuck in a certain decade is to stop trying new trends, so I’ll keep trying the straighter cuts, but I also believe in wearing the styles that are most flattering on your unique body, so we’ll see how that all plays out. For now, anyway, I’m going to continue wearing my skinnies!

So anyway, that’s a wrap. Over and out, 2020!

Tomorrow, I’m kicking off 2021 with my Year In Review, and there will be no new blog post on Saturday, but I will be sending out my Weekly Digest email newsletter. I’m working on a new format, and I’m excited about that! If you don’t receive those already, you can sign up here.

Whatever your plans are tonight, have a save a save and fun New Year’s Eve!!!
