Fashion, as we all know it, is self-expression. Your personal style shows your unique traits, and part of that, although unwittingly, is your age. As you grow older, your personal style evolves to express who you truly are. You can wear whatever you want—whatever reflects your mood or personality, but as a civilized fashion girl or guy, you also consider if how you dress up fits the occasion and—admit it or not—if your outfit is age-appropriate.
If you plan on upgrading your wardrobe this holiday season, let us help you out with a few stylish outfits for every age:
For outfitting kids, the main consideration should be comfort, but style doesn’t have to be sacrificed, of course. A warm flannel shirt plus jeans and sneakers in the right sizes fit the bill. If you’re on babysitting duty, dress in cozy yet chic pieces like lightweight pullovers and relaxed chinos that would allow you to move around comfortably and chase that active tot, too.
Your teens are the best years to experiment on your personal style, so don’t be afraid to try out trends! Pull off the 70s vibe with a sleeveless turtleneck top paired with flared jeans or a button-up skirt. Party with sequins, and play with textures! You might also want to start your collection of versatile items that can polish several looks like a printed coat or maybe a denim jacket to cover up when you rock your crop top and skirt co-ords.
In your 20s, you’ll need a lot of outfits you can wear to work, dates, and special occasions like weddings. Every girl should own a few sexy LBDs for parties. Pair these dresses with a brightly-colored jacket and your favorite white sneakers on lazy days. On the other hand, a sturdy cotton suit and a white button-down are essentials for guys.
For women in their 30s and beyond, higher necklines, longer hemlines, and classic neutrals may be the convention, but you don’t need to be afraid to show off some skin. You can totally pull off a halter shift dress in bold red, or go for a very polished, feminine look with a long-sleeve bow blouse paired with a chic midi skirt. Meanwhile, flannel shirts and structured jackets can work for more matured men. Remember that your standard jeans plus statement shirt combo has an expiration date, and it's way before you hit your 30s.
