The shopping struggle can be seriously real, but when you enter a new era in your lifetime (we're talking a new decade), it becomes all the more difficult. Why? Because your style is likely to change as you get older, which, in turn, means you won't be shopping at all the same places you did in your early to mid-20s—farewell, Forever 21.

When you reach your 30s, it's more important than ever to build a reliable capsule wardrobe that consists of timeless, classic staples that you can easily wear for both work and play. Not sure where to find said pieces? You're in luck, then, because below, we've highlighted the eight best places to shop in your 30s, along with our roundup of must-have basics from each retailer. Ready? Set. Go!

1. Nordstrom

You'll find everything you need at Nordstrom (and just about every brand, too). From the perfect workwear staples to everyday pieces that are slightly more classic, Nordstrom is a one-stop shop to turn to in your 30s.

2. Net-a-Porter

If you're ready to spend more, Net-a-Porter is a great place to shop for seriously on-trend wardrobe staples.
