There are certain pieces that you definitely don’t need by the time you reach your 30’s. Low-rise skinnies, tube-tops, and short denim skirts immediately come to mind. So while I struggle sometimes with tossing away old things, (I am definitely the type that sometimes says, “What if there’s a costume party?” or “What if this style comes back in 3 years?”) I have learned that closet space is more valuable than the possibility of wearing a lace top to an 80’s party.
Another thing I’ve learned? Your style needs to evolve as you mature. And that doesn’t mean you need to abandon your quirky ways or personal preferences. It simply means that you may need to revamp things and adjust from time to time.
For me, I have always loved ultra-girly details: ruffles, lace, bowties—all of it. And I have learned that it’s still ok to pepper that into my wardrobe. However, there are moments and pieces that may be more fitting than others.
This ruffled skirt has garnered me tons of compliments over the last couple of weeks and while it is bordering on young, the length, accessories, and simplicity of the tops I have it paired with here make it perfect for just about everything I take on in my thirty-year-old day.
What are some more styles you guys think we should part ways with?
