As women mature there are life lessons that they pick up along the way, such as avoiding debt, ‘feng shui’ home decorating tips, car insurance, life cover etc. However, there are other little bits of fashion advice that come with growing up and being stylish.
We’ve put together a short list of things that every fashionable woman owns by the time that she’s turned 30.
The perfect bag
It is important to own a smart work bag (preferably in black or any other neutral colour) and a stand-out evening bag that says ‘I have arrived’.
Yes it is true that heels are not always for the workplace if you’re on your feet all day. That’s why so many women opt for comfy flats. However, a woman of style will always have her go-to pair of heels, whether its a classic court heel or the infamous platform heel (these are ‘comfortable’ for those who don’t mind the term ‘suffer for beauty’).
A go-to lipstick
By your late 20’s you should have established which colours and lipstick brands work for your skin tone.
Do not ever leave your humble abode without spritzing a bit of your favourite fragrance on your neck. It is said that one should spray perfume on the warmest areas, or ‘pulse points’, of the body to make sure the scent lasts all day.
Skincare & exercise regime
As a fashionista, you always want to look your best. By 30 you should have a regime that you follow religiously to ensure the health and beauty of your skin and body.
Ladies, make sure to invest in a good bra or a select few for different occasions such as a t-shirt bra for everyday, a sports bra for working out and a strapless bra for boob-tube ensembles, for example. Finding the correct fit is extremely important. So make sure to get your measurements done to ensure that you’re investing in underwear that makes you look and feel good.
A simple, tailored dress
The LBD is a classic must-have item. However, one needs to own a simple dress that is the perfect fit and can be transformed from a casual day look into an evening look.
The perfect pair of jeans
Make sure to find your perfect grain and fit. Jeans are so versatile that they look great in the work place, at home or at any casual, social event. Find a style that you’re most comfortable in and make sure to invest in quality rather than quantity.
Adding a beautiful coat or stand-out jacket to your closet could actually be the most beneficial fashion choice you’ll ever make.
Splurging on accessories is actually ‘okay’ ladies. Statement pieces such as chandelier earrings, chokers, pearls or a wrist watch are great to own in order to add a little bit of glamour to any look.
