9 Outfits That Prove Dressing in Your 30s Is the Best

While age shouldn't be a factor in how you dress, there is a difference between what you gravitated towards in your 20s versus now in your 30s (like maybe that halter top isn't at the top of your pile anymore, but it's saved for a Coachella wardrobe waiting to happen). If you're looking for some new outfit inspiration now that you've hit the not-so-big 3-0, we've got you covered. Below we're highlighting nine gorgeous celeb looks—courtesy of some of the most stylish ladies in their 30s—and showing you how to get each look now. Keep scrolling to find and shop your new go-to outfits.

Style Notes: Just because you've waved goodbye to your 20s doesn't mean you can't wear a mini. Make it sophisticated by copying Alexa Chung's look here. 

+ Mango Wool Boots Skirt (£36).

Sure, this is very Cher Horowitz, but it's also very swish and smart.

#2: A floral suit

Style Notes: The suit is a wardrobe must-have for any girl this season, but it doesn't have to be boring during any point in your life. Try one in a floral pattern to give it some life. 

Zara Double Breasted Printed Blazer (£70and Floral Print Trousers (£30).

One of our favourite high-street stores does it again.

#3: The sassy midi dress

Style Notes: There's nothing better than having a special dress stashed in your wardrobe to bring out on special occasions. Midi hemlines call for a slit or a low neckline to give them some sass. 

#4: Going matchy-matchy

Style Notes: Matching can look twee at any age if you do it from head to toe, but when you do it à la Caroline Issa, you'll look incredible—make sure your shoes match one other accessory, like your sunnies, or pair a jacket with a shirt in a similar colour.

#5: Clashing colours

Style Notes: Olivia Palermo is the queen of contrasting colours. Try it using accessories and shoes. 

#6: Flowing co-ord

Style Notes: For a casual but cool look, the flowing co-ord is super easy and flattering to pull off. Whether for a wedding or a business meeting, you'll be the chicest one there—just like Kate Hudson pictured here.

Zara Striped Blazer (£90and Striped Pyjama Style Trousers (£40).

Best worn with strappy heels.

#7: The smart day look

Style Notes: For the ultimate casual vibe, you no longer want old joggers and a tee. You need a smart sweatshirt, jeans, and a bag that pulls the whole look together. 

Red is still one of our favourite colours for this season. 

#8: Ladylike outerwear

Style Notes: The best way to make you appear more ladylike? A camel coat, of course. Wear it with anything in your wardrobe, and you'll look grown-up instantly. 

#9: Trench coat plus wide-leg jeans and platforms

Style Notes: There's nothing wrong with liking stacked shoes as a grown woman of any age. Ideally, go for a pair of velvet platforms for a more on-trend style, and pair them with wide-leg jeans.
