The Stitch Fix Guide To Owning Your Style At Any Age

When we say, “Age is only a number.” We mean it. Take a minute and think back to your youth; the childhood creativity and freedom that came with playing dress up, the rebellion of changing outfits in the bathroom at school to hide your crazy new jeans from mom, of course, or borrowing your sister’s shoes to sneak to a concert, there’s a sense of identity wrapped up in how we dress. And, it feels good. When we cross over to the adult world—it stops feeling as good. Suddenly there are rules. Don’t wear this. Do wear that.

But we’re here to argue that expressing yourself through style when you’re “adulting” should be just as fun and freeing as when you were young—you should be dressing your self. We won’t tell you what to wear or who you are, but we will share a few ideas to inspire your continued evolution.

Keeping reading for our guide to dressing at any age.
