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?!
- Embrace 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!
