Okay when you have your 30th birthday, it’s not like you suddenly have to throw out all the clothes you’ve been wearing for the past 20+ years and buy a whole new wardrobe. However, there are some important and key pieces you should add to your wardrobe that will really enhance your look and show others how mature you are now.
Your outward appearance says much about who you are as a person, regardless of whether you think so or not. Someone who takes time to look good, think about their style, put effort into buying well-fitted clothing, is naturally going to look more mature. People are going to judge you by what you wear, whether you like it or not, so there is no point in fighting it!
Your sense of style might change with time and age. When you were in your twenties, you woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed, sans children, and could wear whatever you wanted and still look great! But now that you are in your 30’s a few kids later, chances are you can’t just wear whatever you want and look amazing. After you have a few kids and you age, it’s more important (and difficult) to choose your clothes carefully in order to make sure they enhance your look rather than detracting from it.
Many online portals have a full dedicated segment for assisting with such missions. One such portal, Shoppers Stop is offering a Shoppers Stop Coupon for new customers, which will help you save money while shopping.
There are various opinions on what to wear when you are in your 30’s, but you must be selective about them. You are a grown up now and your wardrobe must grow with you.
Here are a few ideas that will enhance your look now that you’re in your thirties:
Get a High-Quality Wallet
Throw out your ugly velcro and nylon wallet you’ve had since you graduated college. Spend some money on a new wallet like Kate Spade New York.
When you pull out your credit card at the mall, do you want them looking at your scuzzy old worn-out wallet wondering if you can actually afford what you are buying or do you want them to be impressed by your fashionable good-quality wallet?
A wallet can complete your appearance without having to do or say much. A simple black or brown leather wallet is always acceptable but if you have a higher budget, you can go for a designer wallet from your local Marshalls.
Now you are in your thirties and you must be more established in your career. It is very uncommon to buy suits when you are in your twenties but as you grow up, suits help you to show your adult status. While buying suits, don’t skimp! This is not the place to save money. Find a good quality suit and have it tailored to fit you perfectly. Once you see yourself in the mirror, you’ll find that you love how you look and you’ll wear the suit way more often than you originally thought. Moreover, try some high-waisted pair of trousers with your suit jacket to enhance the appearance.
Blazers Are Your Friend
Can I just say, blazers look amazing? They go with anything and are comfortable too. A structured blazer that fits you well looks great with skinny jeans, dresses, rompers, shorts, and more! Blazers are so versatile, that every woman in their 30’s should have at least 2 or 3.
Apart from how nice they look, blazers also help you look slim. They provide an effortless look with very little thought. A high-end blouse with slim chinos teamed up with blazer will give you an amazing look and it will truly make you look elegant and fashionable.
Solid Tees with Printed Trousers
Solid colored plain t-shirts look amazing with printed trousers. Plain T-shirts with no patterns are something every woman in her 30’s should have in her wardrobe. Solid color shirts are easy to dress up or dress down and pair with almost everything in your wardrobe.
You can tuck a solid tee into your favorite jeans for a casual weekend look or pair them with printed trousers and a pair of espadrilles for an evening out.
Choose Blouses Over T-Shirts
When you head to your local TJ Maxx in search of new clothes, look for printed blouses rather than boring old logo tees. Not only do they look better, but they also go with everything from slacks and skirts to jeans or shorts. Blouses are highly underrated! You probably don’t realize how comfortable they truly are on top of being really stylish. So next time, when you go shopping, buy blouses instead of plain shirts or logo tees.
Footwear Is Very Important
All of these tips are incomplete without the proper footwear. Footwear is arguably the most important part of your outfit. It is important to have good quality footwear as well as making sure they are stylish in order to enhance your look.
A pair of black or brown leather shoes will give you a mature look which is great for most occasions. It’s still a good idea to have a fun pair of sandals though for summer BBQ’s, church, or your kid’s birthday party.
Apart from finding fashionable shoes, footwear improves your performance too. Pair down your shoe collection and only keep shoes that make sense for your lifestyle. If you’re a stay at home mom of 5, you most likely do NOT need 18 pairs of stilettos. Instead, go through your footwear collection and purge unneeded or worn out shoes, keeping only a few pairs of Flip-flops, one pair of clogs, a couple of pairs of slip-ons, a few pairs of winter boots, etc.
Before selecting new shoes to add to your footwear wardrobe, consider the best ones to match your personal style and also your lifestyle. Sneakers are great for active moms, so you might need several pairs, but sneakers don’t look good with dresses, so make sure you have a few other options even if you spend most of your life in sneakers.
Just because you turn 30 doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing all the things you love, but if you want to update your look and appear more mature, these tips can certainly help you!
