Age certainly shouldn't be a factor in how you dress, but there is a difference between what you gravitated toward in your 20s versus in your 30s (like maybe that halter top isn't at the top of your pile anymore). If you're looking for some fresh outfit inspiration now that you've hit the big 3-0, we've got you covered. From polished, work-ready looks to wear-anywhere outfits that are undeniably polished, consider the question of what to wear in this next chapter officially solved.
Below we're highlighting 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 outfit—there's something for everybody, no matter your actual age.
Ashley Graham, 33
Ashley Graham's take on tonal dressing is elevated via her silky duster coat.
Solange Knowles, 34
Solange is proving to us that the power of a statement trouser is not to be underestimated.
Kate Bosworth, 38
Kate Bosworth's cha-cha pants and pretty one-shouldered top are all we want to wear on Friday nights now.
Lupita Nyong'o, 38
BRB, we're jotting down notes on how to make a pencil skirt look so cool, thanks to Lupita Nyong'o.
Alexa Chung, 37
On those busy days when you don't have time to think, take a note from Alexa Chung, throw on a midi dress with strappy sandals and go. There's no need for extra add-ons.
Meghan Markle, 39
Anything Megan Markle wears is perfect in our book. The princess always manages to look put together, and this look is certainly no exception.
Michelle Williams, 39
Just because you've entered your 30s definitely doesn't mean that the pieces you loved in your 20s like minidresses and ankle boots are off limits. Michelle Williams shows us that with tailored staples like a trench coat, the look is still polished.
Jessica Alba, 39
Lastly, Jessica Alba's off-duty look is casual yet totally put together. She proves that you freshen up good quality essentials with a bold accessory (her sculptural earrings do the trick).
