5 Items You Should Own by the Time You’re 30

 

If you’re in your late twenties and hurtling towards the big 3-0 then whether you like it or not you’re going to see a change in the way you act and your worldwide view becomes a bit more mature. The thing you will notice is that your style will evolve with it.

This evolution will happen gradually and you won’t even notice it has. It’s like once you hit 30 we all seem to follow the same path….hangovers stick around for 2 days, you start thinking about maybe starting a family (if you haven’t already) and your wardrobe just becomes a bit more mature. Now we’re not saying that’s a bad thing.

If this sounds like us describing your life then count yourself lucky. We are here to give you and your wardrobe a gentle push towards adulthood. Here are the 5 items you need to help get the ball rolling…

1. WELL-FITTING JEANS

Remember when you was a young 18 year old hitting the town in your low rise skinny jeans and crop top combo. For most of us those days a distant memory. As your body begins to mature your choice in denim will also begin to change. If that’s the case then you need to invest in a good pair of high waisted or boyfriend slouch jeans.

2. A SLINKY CAMISOLE

Tube tops were acceptable when you were going out clubbing in your teens, and maybe even into uni, but past the age of 30, they’re really only reserved for holidays. Instead, opt for a slinky camisole.

3. CLASSIC BLACK BLAZER

Past some milestones, you really should be limiting your fast-fashion consumption to only trendy pieces you don’t want to drop a ton of cash on. Make sure you invest in the pieces that really matter and will last you well into your 40s and beyond.

4. A WRAP DRESS

Instead of buying everything that’s on trend, opt for pieces that flatter your figure, such as a wrap dress, which, to be honest, looks good on everyone.

5. A ROLL-NECK JUMPER

We’re not saying at 30 you need to cover up your neck, but the roll-neck is the most versatile piece of clothing (second only to the white shirt, of course). They are great to wear under a blazer or just with a pair of jeans. Perfect for any casual occasion.
