30 years is a reason not to lose heart and regret the "lost youth", but to reconsider your life and understand if you are on the right path. And we're not just talking about work and relationships, but also about our image and wardrobe. We offer you to figure out what things you should get rid of in order to feel like an elegant, stylish and confident woman.
1. T-shirts with children's prints and inscriptions
Sometimes in the store, hands just reach out to take a T-shirt with your favorite cartoon character and go with it to the fitting room. It seems that it is very cute and cozy, but in fact, such things make the image infantile. Such a T-shirt will look out of place everywhere: you cannot wear it to work, to a movie or a restaurant. Even for the gym and walking, you should choose something more relaxed. The only option is to wear it at home where you want to feel as comfortable as possible.
It is also worth giving up T-shirts and T-shirts with logos of luxury brands and various inscriptions like “Breaking hearts”. These things will look good in a teenager's wardrobe, but a young woman who knows her own worth, who wants to look elegant and presentable, is better off choosing other clothes.
Pay attention to white and gray T-shirts, which are the basis of a wardrobe at any age. Deeper and more saturated colors, current prints, for example, floristry, geometry, gingham cage and argyle are also suitable. As for materials and styles, you should immediately abandon tight things made of cheap synthetics. A well-cut T-shirt made of flowing fabric, such as silk, can successfully complement the look. The neckline plays an equally important role: a deep triangle will accentuate the neckline, and the boat will be able to reveal graceful shoulders and collarbones.
2. Tight dresses
Even if the figure allows, all the same tight-fitting outfits look quite frank and defiant, especially if their length is much higher than the knee. The older you get, the more important it is to discard frivolity and think about status, a sense of proportion. Moreover, tight dresses are out of fashion for a long time. Now looser styles are relevant, which leave room for imagination, for example, A-silhouette or smell.
Take a closer look at dresses with open shoulders, puffy sleeves, thin shoulder straps that emphasize the fragility and sophistication of the female figure. Things with a floral print are also in fashion, and the dress can have both large buds and small field painting. Another trend is minimalism. Many brands have abandoned numerous décor, intricate silhouettes and variegated patterns in favor of laconic cuts, natural shades and clean lines. You can go anywhere in this dress, the main thing is to complement it with the right accessories for the occasion.
3. High heels with platform
The reason is the same as in the previous paragraph. High heels with a platform look vulgar and evoke not at all the associations that we would like. And if they are also combined with a short tight dress or skirt, the image will definitely turn out to be far from stylish and elegant. Plus, high heels hurt your spine. It will be much better if you give preference to shoes with a medium stable heel or classic pumps. They make the leg more graceful, stretch the silhouette, match perfectly with any clothing, and most importantly, they do not make the outfit tasteless and too provocative.
First of all, we are talking about bags. Many girls have a habit of buying replicas and thinking that outwardly they are no different from the original. Believe me, people who understand branded things will definitely be able to distinguish the original Chanel from the one bought on the market, because they know where to look. First of all, the replica will be given by the material of poor quality, and then by the fittings, seams and other details.
In addition, it is unlikely that a girl who can afford to buy a bag for several hundred dollars will get to work by minibus. It's not for nothing that stylist Alexander Rogov says that a fake is a lie, and it's not good to lie. Therefore, the best option in this situation would be to choose a quality accessory in the mass market. Brands such as Mango, Zara, Asos can offer worthy alternatives.
5. Old generation gold jewelry
Gold and silver will probably never go out of fashion, because these precious metals are timeless. However, the appearance of jewelry plays a very important role. Massive and bulky rings, earrings, bracelets, popular in Soviet times, can do a disservice - they cheapen the image, make it tasteless and attract too much unnecessary attention. Such jewelry, which came from grandmother, is best kept in a box as a family heirloom or worn under a stylized outfit so that they are appropriate.
Note: The forbidden list also includes plastic jewelry, which is only appropriate in the image of a Barbie doll. Instead of a scattering of cheap jewelry, it is better to have some exquisite jewelry that can be worn both in a feast and in the world. For example, Tiffany & Co offers fine and beautiful silverware at affordable prices.
• To create a competent wardrobe, each item of which will emphasize your dignity, you need to study yourself, your appearance and lifestyle. You need to figure out what colors and styles are suitable, what needs to be hidden, and what should be emphasized, what clothes are appropriate in your closet (a freelancer hardly needs a mountain of business suits, but an office employee is nowhere without such clothes).
• Remember that the image should be thought out from A to Z. Teenagers can be forgiven for negligence, and beauties over 30 always need to monitor the appropriateness of the make-up, the neatness of the manicure, the state of the hair. Well-groomed is what makes the image luxurious and aristocratic.
• The basis of the wardrobe should be made of natural fabrics. There are several reasons: it is good for health, pleasant for the skin, beautiful and status.
• Shoes should also be of high quality, this is important, first of all, for your comfort and the condition of your feet. Don't be limited to two pairs of shoes: black and white. Let there be several models of different colors that will allow you to create expressive images for every day.
• Accessories can both add zest to the image and hopelessly ruin it. Therefore, follow fashion trends and carefully select sunglasses, jewelry, belts, scarves and other details.
To listen to the advice of stylists or not is everyone's personal business. Many people put their own comfort at the head and based on this they make up their images. Someone is comfortable in a T-shirt with Mickey Mouse, someone in a dress with a deep neckline. It's just that before each leaving the house, you should consider whether the chosen outfit will be appropriate in a particular situation, and whether your reputation will not suffer from the fact that instead of a spectacular trouser suit, you go for an interview in denim shorts (albeit undoubtedly comfortable).
