Consider the Fit

Depending on how much more mature you want your outfits to be, the first step is considering the way clothes fit you. If you think that your wardrobe has to only include long dresses and pants, you’re wrong. The length of the dresses you wear won’t make you look younger or older if you don’t take a look at the way they fit you. So for a more mature feel to your wardrobe, go for dresses that are more loose fitting, something with a straight cut instead of a flowy dress. This will give you that put together look and will also flatter your body. Play with patterns and colors, but if you want the classy approach, go for more toned down colors or earth tones. Same goes for pants, something with a looser fit will flatter your body and give you that “old money” look. Try carrot pants and tuck a T-shirt in for a more modern approach. 

Outer Layers

To make your outfit look better from the first glance, we need to talk about outer layers. The jackets that you wear will be the first thing that people see, so they have a great impact on any outfit. For a more mature vibe, you can incorporate ponchos, scarves or high quality sweaters in your wardrobe. If you get these in a material such as wool, they will have that grandma vibe while being stylish and modern. Try looking for these pieces instead of denim or leather jackets, switch out your blazers to some cardigans and you’ve got that fancy, yet comfy look. They work with dresses or pants and you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion.


The most important thing when it comes to anyone’s wardrobe is comfort. The way you feel in your clothes and the confidence they give you is what should be most important. So try out this wardrobe change, but don’t feel forced to upgrade your clothes because of your age. Make sure you have comfy clothes that are appropriate for the events you attend and that make you feel good about yourself. Also, make sure you invest in some high quality shoes. If you want something more classy, go for some oxford shoes, they work with everything and they have a timeless and ageless design.
