In early ‘20s, the style code followed by teenage girls is so easy to guess – the shorter the better. That’s because girls of this age get besotted with the Indian and ‘firangi’ fashion magazines and like to get familiar with various happenings in dressing and pouting. They love to pick up every fashion trend that they can find in the friend circle. But when ‘30s are banging on the door, it is time to mellow down a little. No more fast lane, please. And that doesn’t mean you need to go conservative.

Age as we know is a number and its fine to follow the trends. But as you hit 30s the way of approaching fashion should be a wee bit different from the bubble gum days. For instance, you can consider opting for classic items that are needed on a daily basis as you get older and successful. It can be a chic looking pantsuit or a pair of all-purpose heels.
With that in mind, we have picked up 10 things every fashionable woman (not gal, any more) can consider buying for her wardrobe by the time she is about to hit 30’s. They don’t have a limited shelf life, but will last for few years. They will also show the world how wordly smart you are in your thinking and choices. So here we go sharing the wardrobe staples and miscellaneous things that would make you proud of your ‘30s.
1. Say Goodbye to Low-Rise Jeans
Well, at this stage we will have to give Britney Spears-inspired low rise jeans a cold shoulder. They seemed a hottie to us when we were in sweet 20s, but not a wee bit any more with maturing bodies in the early 30s. So put them away and go for a pair of high-waist trousers or boyfriend jeans for that matter.
2. Wear High-Waisted Trousers
There was a time when you wore distasteful suits for occasions such as job interview. Now that you have bloomed into 30s, put on a sleek pair of high-waisted trousers. It will make you look corporate, not a teeny any more.
3. Shoe Styles
Saddle shoes no more as they look immature on women past a certain age. Reach out for a sleek pair of flat and pointy slip-ons.
4. Tube Tops No, Camisoles Yes
Tube tops were fine when you were marching in the high school, or college, but now that you are plus 30, they’re a total no-no. A camisole is fine instead.

5. Denim Pencil Skirts
Way back when you were in the sweet 16’s, denim skirts looked fine. Now since you are no more the papa’s girl, opt for denim pencil skirt.
6. Fast Fashion Out, Quality Basics In
Limit or donate your fast-fashion products to trendy pieces that will make you a well-deserving lady, not out-of-the-context girl any more.
7. Setbacks of Inexpensive and Colour Changing Jewelery
Jewelry trinkets picked from the fashion streets might look very hot, but think of the colour they could leave on your skin. Buy it from a trusted brand that won’t put its negative impact on your skin. Stay away from plastic jewelry that has been artificially coated in silver or gold pain. Go for affordable pieces from quality brands.
Novelty headbands were meant for the 20-year-old girls. When you are in early 30’s, switch over to slightly sophisticated versions.
9. From Platform Pumps to Pointy Suedes
Growing up is all the more fun when you have a grown-up pair of classic pointy-toed pumps on your feet.
10. From Micro-Mini to Midi-Length Skirt
It’s time for an adult woman to hang them her micro-minis and slip into a feminine full skirt.

11. Quality Lingerie Makes Sense
Since now you are a grown-up woman, don’t wear distressed bras or panties. Discard them if they have holes, and go for a premium brand that can look after your assets.
Street tote bags might be alright but make a decent impression by going for branded bags.
As you hit early ‘30s, skin collagen seems to weaken up. Opt for a gentle cleanser and follow it up with a rich moisturiser and SPF.
Now go be awesome in your 30s. You are still a girl, mature and stunning than ever.
