Why Getting Older Is the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Your Style

At the ripe age of 24, there's still a lot for me to learn in matters of style. That said, I have already noticed positive shifts in my wardrobe with every year that passes, from my earlier days of wearing an over-the-top mish-mash of trends to my current regimen of pared-down back basics with a slight twist.

I haven't totally found my niche though, and still find myself questioning my choices more than I'd like. I aim to be in a more comfortable place with my style, but the women around me who harbour this confidence seem to be at least five years older than me. Perhaps age, and the wisdom that comes with it, is the secret sauce here. I suppose I'll have to wait my turn, but in a society that seems set solely preoccupied with youth, it's refreshing to realise that an exciting rite-of-passage still awaits. 

To prove my point, I spoke to six women of varying ages—whose opinions and style I really admire—about how their style has changed over the years. See what they had to say below!
