@MrsSl82be:  Mine def has!  I don’t if its because of work and stuff too… and just maturing.  I feel like I used to dress more revealing when I was younger, but now I still like to look sexy but in a different way.  I feel like my style has completely changed!

Mine for sure has. I started going to college and working in an upscale financial planning office when I was 16, so my wardrobe evolved fairly quickly. I like to look sexy yet professional, but on the weekends, I’ll rock a pair of skinny jeans and t shirt too.

Oh definitely.

In a similar way to you to. I don’t wear graphic tees or things with logo’s anymore only prints and solids. And I dress more professional and less casual when I go out than I used too.

It was such a gradual change though I can’t pin point when it happened.

I worked on a farm so I was all jeans and tees, messy hair, boots- which I still love and adore, but when I get showered off and dress up for public I have a new affinity for all things feminine. Sundresses, soft colors, scarves, skirts, etc. Definitely more modest, no more daisy dukes, or running shorts, I wear more of an old lady cut. Id rather wear a form fitting top and have the world see I have breasts by shape, than a tank top and bra that spills them out innto the open.

I was never been one for graphic tees or sneakers and jeans. I never had a “punk” or “skater” phase and can’t ever imagine myself being “hipster”.

I am happiest in solid color tshirts and jeans or nice shorts. I like accessories, but not as much as I used to. I used to be somewhat trendy, but now I buy things that will last forever, such as well cut jeans and solids. That way I buy clothes less often. I change up my accessories if I want to update an outfit, but I dont buy them anymore. I just use what I have. So maybe my style didn’t change as much…but my clothing spending habits?

for me, the only thing that has really changed is that i’m starting to splurge more on quality brand name clothes.  when i was younger, i wasn’t a huge label whore.  i mean yea, i dreamt of changel bags and stuff and even managed to get a prada purse from an ex, but i wasn’t totally into quality clothes because i couldn’t afford them. i’d go to marshall’s and find cute little no name tops for like $8. and i had a great sense of style then but just didn’t care if it was a fancy name brand.

now i go to marshall’s for $60 calvin klein blazers and $60 michael kors heels.  i have a pretty cool sense of fashion and i’m not afraid to wear bold stuff. i’m all over the map with fashion. i’ll do the classic sophisticated thing and i’m also really good at dressing up a killer pair of tight jeans with a white wife beater and throwing some loud colorful heels into the outfit with a cute purse.  

and i really dig bra straps showing, but not in a trashy way.  i dunno i just pull it off..carrie bradshaw style i guess.  i’m gonig to be 30 this year and i guess i’m going through a phase where i feel like these are my last few years that i can get away with flaunting a little but i do it tastefully.

My fashion has evolved too. I’ve turned away from the graphic tees as well but the biggest change is that I’m starting to dresses for fun. I never thought that would happen. Plus, I have finally discovered that belts aren’t just for holding your pants up. Genious!

I’ve lived in jeans, tshirt and sneakers since forever but am now starting to rotate more feminine and fitted items into my wardrobe. Probably well overdue but hey, I had to take my time to figure this stuff out.

Mine style has changed a lot in the recent years.  Specifically, I used to be really into name brand clothing.  Not because of the actual name, but I tended to just gravitate toward the popular trends/designers.  Thank goodness I got over that, I can’t afford it anymore.  I think I have a more subtle style than before.  I’m a lot less preoccupied with how I look too, it’s exhausting to put so much energy into an outfit!  I realized how much I’ve changed in this regard awhile back.  I think it has to do in part with the fact that I moved from NYC to Connecticut.  Obviously a lil different.

I’m pretty bland.

I wish that someone else would dress me in the mornings.

I’ve definitely had changes over the years (thank goodness my Hot Topic years were just a phase!), but especially even over the past year!

Last summer I moved into a trendy neighborhood south of downtown Minneapolis. My roommate gave me a calendar for my birthday this July that she had made using pictures of us together from the past year. Just seeing our style from last August to where we are now is incredible! I didn’t even realize the influence that came from going out in this trendier neighborhood versus the suburbs or my small college town.

I’m definitely liking it, though! I’ve also been more intentional when it comes to rememebering things I like when I see outfits, and am actually trying to narrow in on a personal style 🙂

My style has definitely changed, more so recently. I’m turning 25 in a few weeks, and recently I’ve been getting sick of my wardrobe. I used to exclusively shop at Express, and now I’m moving towards stores like J Crew, Banana Republic, etc. My style is becoming more classic instead of trendy.
