My Carolina Today video: Dressing Appropriately After 30

Savvy Stylist Suzanne Libfraind shares tips on how women over 30 can dress appropriately for a night out.

By the time you reach your 30’s you should have a sense of style! Tips for Nightlife Dressing For The Over-30 Crowd.

1. No need to stop following trends, just look for trends that flatter your body
2. Try pairing skinny jeans with a loose top and avoid torn jeans
3. Wear shorter and fitted jackets with a more classic style
4. Upate your haircut, frames or sunglasses to a sleeker look
5. Lastly, it is a no-go on midriff tops or sweatpants that say "sexy" or "kitten" on the behind

Dressing For Our Weather, Really?

Ok, yes, our winter has been quite cold and not much fun. For some reason we will get a slight reprieve late this week and the weather will warm. For those of us in the Triangle we may even experience the mid to high 60's. I might even try my hand at playing tennis outside! So what to do about dressing? Here is a few tips to keep in mind. In the meantime, keep your winter duds close nearby.

1. Try putting the tights away and pull out open toe heels and neutral sandals.

2. Wear long sleeve tees and layer with vests and cardigans.

3. Cotton scarves are great for lightweight layering and transitioning an outfit.

4. Lastly, pull put a few heavier weighted sleeveless dresses and tops and layer with lightweight jackets and scruggs.

Keep in mind mother nature may decide in the weeks to follow to go back to the cold, so wait a while before converting your wardrobe!

Transitional Clothing Really?

It is the strangest thing. Last week we were bundled up with layers of clothing, hats, gloves and scarves. Later this week we will have the opportunity to shed the layers and bask in the mild warmth. What to do, what to do? No need to put away the winter wears, but just readjust.
