How Not to Look Old in Your Clothes

Fashion should make you stand out, but not because you look ridiculous or ten years older than your age. Here are the things you should avoid when dressing up.

Too Much Makeup

If you’re not going to act on stage, why use up every single piece in your make-up kit? Your make-up should highlight your strengths but hide your flaws. That doesn’t mean you have to cosplay every time you go out. Wear make-up appropriate for the occasion. You don’t want to look like a melted candle on the beach or an anemic at the office party.

Too Many Accessories

Unless you’re cosplaying as a Christmas tree why advertise all the contents of your jewelry box? Accessories should add color to your outfit, not overpower it. Don’t wear accessories that clash with the colors or cut of your clothes. For example, if you’re wearing flowery dress with a lot of frills, there’s no need to wear a chandelier necklace.

All Black Clothes

They might look good on teenagers but when you have fine lines and wrinkles on your neck and face, black could make imperfections stand out. This is when the statement “dress your age” should be used. Choose earthy colors for your skirts and pants and then pair them up with bright-colored tops so you’ll look fresh and vibrant.

You Follow Trends

If you’re a certified fashionista who’s updated with all the latest trends in clothes and shoes, chances are, you’ll look outdated in about 5 years. You’ve also wasted a lot of money on things you don’t want to use instead of investing in pieces that never go out of fashion. Jeans and simple shirts might look boring to you but they’re functional for every age and never go out of style.

Clothes that Don’t Fit

The cut and shape of your clothes should enhance your figure, not make you look like a dining table or a stripper. Tight-fitting clothes are as uncomfortable as baggy clothes. You should also choose underwear that fit properly. Ladies should have a professional fitting when they’re trying on bras.

All Vintage

Vintage clothes are so chic, but you would want to pair them up with modern hairstyles and accessories. Mix and match old-fashioned dresses with the modern shoes. Stop wearing the standard shirt, pants and blazers combination at the office. When done properly, your diverse wardrobe will be the envy of your co-workers.

Oversized Glasses

Pick glasses that are the right size for your face and shape of your head. There’s nothing fashionable about huge, thick-rimmed glasses no matter what those young pop group singers tell you. And no, you don’t look smart in them.

Too Many Hats and Scarves

Scarves on collared blazers or shirts? You’ll look like you’re about to be strangled. The combination will make your torso look bigger and people will think you have a short neck. And don’t wear big hats like a fedora unless you’re shooting a film.

The Korean Trend

We may be living several miles away from Korea but that didn’t stop their food and style influences from reaching our borders. You could see that Korea has a strong influence in fashion and beauty, especially in women’s wear, makeup, facial care, and even hairstyle. And when it comes to Korean food, well it can’t be denied that it is indeed delicious as well. So if like many, you’ve also been bitten by the “Korean bug” then check out this list for a preview of some Korean stores here in Singapore that might just help you get that fix you’ve been searching for your cravings that has to do with anything Korean.



Koreans are probably among the most stylish and fashion-forward citizens in the world. Whenever they set a trend, almost everyone wants to copy it. One such trend is the loose top complemented with a pair of short shorts. But whatever trend they start, it always seems to be a hit. So, for all the fashion-conscious women out there who want to imitate that Korean-style, there’s no need to fly to Korea to buy some clothes. Instead, you could check out Tiramisu Boutique, located at Bugis Cube, 470 North Bridge Road, for some clothes-shopping or perhaps you could just check out the numerous shops online.


Face Care & Makeup

Let’s face it. No pun intended. We are jealous of the flawless skin Koreans seem to have been naturally born with. Korean women, and even men, have blemish-free skin and their pores are impossibly invisible. So how exactly do they maintain such envious skin? Well, we may not exactly know how but we could at least try by using their home grown face and cosmetic products. Since the turn of the century, Korean products specializing on face care have been gaining a steady following. Now, Singaporeans wanting to grab a hold of these products have a good number of options to choose from. You’ve got The Face Shop, Etude House, and Tony Moly among others.


For sure, by now, you’ve already heard about bulgogi, bibimbap, and kimchi. These are just a few of the Korean dishes that have won the taste buds of many foodies. Korean food is definitely worth trying as it is known to contain several health benefits plus it is simply delicious. And if you want a taste of their dishes, Big Mama Korean Restaurant at 2 Kim Tian Road is a great place to fill your tummy.
