5 Chic Outfit Ideas for Women Over Age 30
Age is nothing more than a number. Right? While you should technically be able to wear whatever you want whenever you want, style inevitably does vary based on the year you were born. Are you wearing the same jeans style at 45 as you were at 25? Or the same skirt length, for that matter? Probably not. But just because you're getting "older" doesn't mean your look can't feel just as fresh as when you were 20. To prove it, we highlighted five incredibly fashionable women in every age bracket from 30 on, along with styling tips to master each of their looks. You'll reach for each of these sophisticated outfit formulas time and time again.
Keep scrolling to scope out sleek outfit ideas in your age group. But remember, if you spot something you prefer more in another category, just go for it—regardless of when your birthday falls.
