I Just Turned 30 and Cleaned Out My Closet—Here Are the 4 Trends I Got Rid Of

And what I replaced them with.

I Just Turned 30 and Cleaned Out My Closet—Here Are the 4 Trends I Got Rid Of

I try not to subscribe to the idea that you should accomplish x,y, and z before you turn 30—there's just too much pressure in that. However, when it comes to my closet, I felt like my milestone birthday was a good chance to reevaluate what I spend money on and what doesn't "bring me joy," to quote Marie Kondo. Plus, the pandemic has shifted my fashion priorities in a more casual direction, so I decided to organize my wardrobe accordingly.

I realized one thing lately: What I choose to wear to run simple errands is what I should be investing in moving forward. It's not strappy heeled sandals, corporate-feeling blazers, or impractical clutches. Instead, it's slide-on-and-go mules, loose-fitting pieces, functional crossbody bags, and other similarly easy-to-wear items. Scroll down to shop the four main trends I got rid of after turning 30. 

As much as I love a good blazer, I can't stand the extra-stiff, structured ones that are simply not comfortable to move around in. As I get older, I want to make a conscious effort to not buy pieces solely for their looks and instead choose items for practical reasons like comfort and wearability. 

I love matching sets because they're a no-effort way to look put-together quickly. They're also super versatile because you can mix and match with other items from your closet and create a bunch of different outfits. 

The pandemic has definitely made me realize how silly some of my jewelry is and how infrequently I wear it. Going forward, I'm excited to choose quality over quantity and save up for extra-special jewelry pieces that feel personal. For instance, the necklace below is made from individual pearls I received every holiday and birthday over the span of 20 years from my grandma and great-aunt. Costume jewelry could never. 

Lately, my flat mules have been getting a ton of wear, so I've made the conscious decision to quit spending money on shoe trends I can't wear every day. That, however, doesn't mean they have to be boring—just look at the jewel-embellished Manolo Blahnik flats below for proof. 

I think cropped flare jeans are outdated at this point and look a bit like you're wearing jeans that you outgrew. Instead, I am investing in full-length jeans, which feel much more grown-up and polished. Plus, I am 5'10", so basically, any cropped jeans look extra short on me. Yet I still wear them. Instead, I want to solve the problem and go for styles with long inseams.

Blake Lively Wore the Trend I'd Happily Ditch My Skinny Jeans For

I'm incredibly loyal to my favorite pairs of jeans, but since I'm a fashion editor, I figured I should probably expand my horizons a bit and try out some other pant trends. What did I settle on? The loose-fitting trouser trend that Blake Lively just wore in New York City. Along with a V-neck T-shirt and lace-up boots, Lively wore flowy pinstripe pants that gave off the perfect chill-yet-stylish vibe. 

Slouchy pants have been super popular with celebrities lately. Irina Shayk, for instance, recently wore oversize cargo pants, while Angelina Jolie styled wide-leg trousers to perfection. Meanwhile, the best-dressed women on Instagram have also been wearing baggy pants this fall. Scroll down to see how Blake Lively styled the trend and shop similar trousers.
