Though most 30-year-olds feel their youth is past when they turn the corner, they should know better. The thirties are the prime time of life, when life just seems to be starting. It’s full of possibilities and one feels the struggles of the 20s are behind and one has chosen one’s career or life path and needs to only invest passion and faith in it.
Along with other subtle changes, one’s desire to wear a certain kind of fashion style also reveals itself as one enters the ‘30s. The saying goes that age is nothing but a number, however, it does mean a lot when it comes to fashion. So, filling up one’s wardrobe with a different kind of fashion clothing becomes necessary.
From choosing classier and edgier clothing to dresses that flatter your body changes will work best. Even if you think you can carry them off, please try and ditch those shorts and LBDs, that you probably wear to look 20-something. Choosing to wear something younger may actually make you look older, that’s the irony of it.
Similarly, T-shirts with loud messages are not even for the 20s, what to talk of the 30s! Instead, choose formal or semi-formal blouses that spell elegance with a capital E.
The best part about moving into a new age is you can have fun throwing out clothes that no longer make any sense and filling it up with the new and relevant. And remember, at no age should you choose boring over bombshell.
Of course, you can continue to wear jeans, which come with a versatility to suit any age, but mix and match it well. For instance, you could wear it with a sheer top. Replace a sling bag with a classy purse, because the 30s call for smart accessories too, you know.
The thirties are also a time when people have become comfortable with their bodies, a real issue since teenage years for most people. That, combined with a better sense of fashion, makes dressing in the 30s a win-win affair.
But one thing you gotta remember is that now, comfort dressing steals a slight edge over style dressing. Palazzos instead of churidhars and maxis instead of minis define the thirties fashion over the twenties.

Beyond clothes, fashion includes a whole lot of other things as well. Make-up for instance. Once in your thirties, choose a lighter lotion for your face and body. They help by keeping age away as well as don’t make you feel the discomfort of wearing a thick anti-age cream that you can put off till the 40s. Oils with vitamin E also help to moisturize a skin that’s slowly losing its natural moisture and helps to remove the puffiness. Fruit peel-based packs also help.
When it comes to hair, avoid taking the free hand you may have done in your twenties and go for less loud hairstyles and hair colours. Talking of hair, how about trying a middle parting? Perhaps, you haven’t tried the look since your schooldays but now it will go a long way towards making you look chic.
