Things I’ve Learnt Since 18 (Style Edition) // A couple of months back I did a Things I’ve Learned Since 18 (Beauty Edition) and everyone did a full on throwback in the comments section and shared some of their “oh wow” moments! Have a read here if you would like to read the beauty edition. Here I’ve shared my style tips that have evolved/changed since I was 18:

  1. Wear what you want, how you want it!
  2. Ironing makes a BIG difference
  3. Sometimes a white t-shirt and jeans combo is still a good and chic choice!
  4. Trends come and go, and sometimes come back, so always wear what you like if its trendy
  5. You can never have too many shoes!
  6. Dark brown and dark green together does no one any favours
  7. Too not purchase anything just because! Sleep on it and then decide (this doesn’t really work all the time !)
  8. To dress for yourself!
  9. Buy classic styles to last the lifetime
  10. Continuing on with 9, quality over quantity


Writing this list makes me laugh at all the “OMG” fashion fails I’ve done, but if I lived my life again I would do it again, because then I’d never learn from my mistakes!

What are some of your style lessons you’ve learned over the years?

  • These are all great things! Especially number 1.. when im not at events or functions im a bit of a dag and i would gladly put on all my un-ironed clothes to go out, such a bad habit! !

  • The Sunday Mode

    I totally agree with number 5 and number 2. The amount of crinkly shirts I’ve worn in the past is actually sad. Haha

  • Such a great post! Also I’m loving the yellow Mimco wallet, I’m tempted to purchase one for myself! xx

    I definitely agree with 9 and 10. I have found myself lately investing in great quality classic pieces that will last a lifetime versus an okayish quality top/shoe/bag/pants etc and having to buy them more often. Same goes with trends, these days I am learning to dress in styles that I like and actually suite me versus one that is ‘in fashion.’ Great post! xx

  • Wearing what you want and buying classic styles is right on point. I used to just buy whatever but as I continue to get older classics is definitely where it’s at you can mix and match so many different items to create so many outfits! Amazing post.
