Fashion Essentials for Women Over 30
Your teens and 20s are the time to make fashion faux pas. You can wear whatever you want and get away with it. However, your 30s onward are a little less forgiving. You are supposed to have it all sorted out by then. By the time you reach your 30s, you have had enough experience to know what looks good and what doesn’t, and there are certain things that every woman over the age of 30 should have in her wardrobe. Here are the top 8 fashion essentials for women over 30.
A pair of well-fitting tailored pants will look good with anything. By the age of 30, you will have tried on a few different styles and brands until you find the ideal pair that has the perfect hemline and has a well-fitting waistband that makes you look and feel great. Once you have found them, never let them go.
A Stylish Blazer
A great blazer is the perfect accessory to wear to work, whether you wear it as part of a suit or use it to make a work-style dress look smarter. Every woman over the age of 30 needs to have at least one fantastic, smart, chic blazer in her wardrobe, like this Slim Long Sleeve Blazer.
A White T-Shirt
This is the most versatile item of clothing you are ever likely to own, and the great thing is they don’t tend to cost a fortune. You can wear it under your work suit, with a pair of jeans, or over a pretty summer skirt. The choices are endless. It is not so much a case of deciding whether you should have one but of deciding how many you should have.
A Comfortable Pair of Heels
Yes, there is such a thing as a comfortable pair of heels. By the time you hit 30, you will have had enough of bad experiences with shoes and the chance to find a style and heel that you can wear all day, dance in all night, and pair with any outfit. A chunky heel is often a good option if you need to stand up for a lengthy period as it helps you to balance out your posture and center of gravity. However, only you can decide how high your shoes can be before you start getting uncomfortable.
The Perfect Jeans
Jeans come in all sizes and styles, and you will probably own several different ones before you settle on the perfect style and brand for you. These are jeans that you never get tired of wearing and that will hopefully never go out of style. Once you have found your perfect jeans, you will never need to shop for a different brand or style again.
The Versatile Dress
Every girl needs a versatile dress that she can wear anywhere with anything and still look and feel fantastic. By the time you hit 30, you should have found your perfect one. Whether it is the traditional little black dress, a jersey dress, or a floral number, such as this Sling Dress, you know what looks good on you and you can wear that style wherever you go.
If you have a good eye for vintage fashion and that is your signature style, you might own several vintage items long before you hit 30. If not, just one fabulous vintage item will do for now, but you can always add to it as you go along. A vintage piece will never go out of fashion, and you can wear it as part of a retro ensemble or with something that is trendy and it will still look fabulous.
The Treat Bag
By 30, you should have had one event in your life that was worth buying an expensive bag for. Whether it was a big promotion, a bad breakup or anything in between, you felt that you deserved it and you went ahead and bought it. The wonderful thing about the treat bag is that you can look back on it for years to come and remember what you did to deserve it and think about how much you have grown since then. Regardless of whether it stays in fashion, you will probably still own it by the time you are drawing your pension as a memento of that time.
These are the eight fashion essentials for women over 30. If you don’t have them yet, it might be time to go shopping.
