Style Tips for the Thirty-Somethings!

Rock Forever 21 but just turned thirty- Yeezus

So, you’re approaching (or are in) your thirties and you see a fresh-faced twenty year old-something wearing the newest trend.   In a vain attempt to “get the look,” you find yourself standing in the middle of Forever 21 with a graphic tee and mini skirt, a veiled beanie, thigh-high socks and combat boots – looking and feeling every bit of 31. Out of place much?!  I know we’d hate to admit it, but maybe Yeezus was on to something!  All of a sudden, you don’t feel so comfortable in those teeny weeny, oh-so-trendy clothes.  Seriously, what happened?  Is the world coming to an end?!

The answer is a resounding no (you can put away your zombie survival kit now).  However, with age comes evolution, and your personal style is no different.  If this sounds like you, don’t fret – this post is for you!  Here are 3 style tips for the thirty-somethings!

  • Less Trends, More Staples – Ditch the “trend of the week ” and go for that fabulous blazer, perfect-fitting denim jean, and chic pump! Not only can staple pieces do wonders for your wardrobe, they also help to maximize your closet!

  • Quality not Quantity – Invest in your wardrobe! It took me years to realize this.  I’m not saying throw frugality into the wind, but it’s better to have a few great quality pieces than 100 pieces that fall apart after one wash!  Don’t you hate that?!
  • RZEmbrace the New You – Accept that your style is evolving! Just look at it as an opportunity to become even more fabulous than you were the day before!
