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you’re a certified fashionista who’s updated with all the latest trends in clothes and shoes, chances are, you’ll look outdated in about 5 years.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.
