Each decade in life comes with its own set of milestones. Whether it's buying your first car and landing that dream job or marrying the love of your life and starting a family, your life will evolve over time. Naturally, your style will, too. Anyone who's ever lived through their 20s can tell you that this is the time for exploring and finding yourself, and there's no doubt that this idea applies to your style, as well.
If you're the type of person to measure your life in years rather than decades, the sartorial evolution can feel more like a slow burn than a hot flash. No matter where you are in your journey from one decade to the next, you're bound to experiment with your style a handful of times before you finally land on the aesthetic that feels on par with who you are at your core. In the meantime, chances are you want a few looks to spark some creative inspiration for your next outfit.
