6 Clothing Items & Accessories You Should Ditch After 30 (PHOTOS)

There's a good reason why few designers make onesies in our size -- adults look absurd and confused wearing items that are not age appropriate. The debate over whether your clothing has a shelf life has raged on for some time and many women stubbornly hold onto items their tween daughters would wear simply because they resent being told what to do.

I'm not suggesting you cut your hair or throw out your leopard coat or bikini. I'm talking about ditching items that make even the chicest 20-something look silly. Can you even picture Elizabeth Taylor trying to rock a poodle skirt just because all the kids were doing it? Nah, she knew how to dress like a WOMAN. And if she were alive and in her thirties today, you can bet she wouldn't be caught wearing any of these items. 


There are many clever ways to incorporate trends into your wardrobe -- no matter what your age -- without having to fully rock the trend in all its glory. If you choose instead to wear these 6 items after your 30th birthday, you risk looking like you're trying really hard to relive your teenage years again.
