Do you remember the time when you felt so flattered after being told that you do look older? It is interesting to see how this former compliment becomes an insult as you actually grow older. In reality, you can avoid hearing this comment as long as you avoid certain fashion mistakes. In fact, you can even look more youthful by following certain tips! We know that it is not easy to keep up with fashion because trends constantly change and evolve. You can let out a sigh of relief because this guide of ours is here to help you.

Poofy, Big Hairdo

If you were alive during the ‘70s and ‘80s, you most likely remember just how much girls liked big hair. The only way to achieve this hairdo was to back-comb or tease your hair mercilessly. Sadly, it turns out that this was awful for your hair and can do some serious damage.

Not only that, but it no longer looks hip. It is better to have soft and silky hair now. It will make your hair healthier with soft and silky hair, and you can even style it easily to whatever style you prefer!

Matchy-Matchy Outfits

There was a time when people considered you stylish if you color-coordinate your clothes. Sadly, this is a boring look that will add years to your age now. To look cool and chic, you should start mixing patterns and prints instead of colors.

Matchy-Matchy Outfits

As a tip, leopard and plaid can look awesome together when done right. Try and play around with it and find what you like the most. Diversifying your accessories, in both color and texture, is another do. And under no circumstances should you ever rock a suite of jewelry.

High-Waters

There is absolutely no other reason to put on high-water pants unless you just want people to see how neat your socks happen to be. However, this is the only exception to the rule. When you are out and shopping for pants, just make sure to get something that will not leave your ankles feeling cold.

High-Waters

The whole purpose of wearing pants is to keep your whole leg covered! To emphasize your figure and hide your imperfections, these are a perfect choice, and they should be an essential element of the wardrobe for everyone. They emphasize youth and thus do a great deal to knock off your appearance for a few years.

Over-Plucking/Tweezing

Yes, we also remember when people liked to pluck their eyebrows until they were as thin as humanly possible. However, if you do this now, people will think you have not moved on from the early 2000s. The exact opposite is now all the rage.

Screenshot 4

Over-Plucking/Tweezing

Anyone who wants to look stylish should opt for thick, natural, and bushy brows instead. This is much easier too, so it’s a win-win! Though bushy brows aren’t anyone’s best friend. Going to a salon and getting your brows waxed or threaded is easy.

No Skincare Routine

You might think that you are in the clear while you are still in your twenties, but you should start putting on the night and eye cream already now. Even though you still look fine, you can prevent serious skin damage by using anti-aging products early on.

No Skincare Routine

You can stay young by adding it to your daily routine when you wake up before going to bed. Just be sure to find the right products for you. Your lifestyle choice, certain environmental factors, and the amount of attention that you pay to it – things you can control – accelerate your aging.

Long Sleeves Only

We want you to know that there is nothing unnatural about arm flab. You might feel conscious about it, but people are probably not paying any attention to it. However, they will look at you weirdly if they see you hiding it in the summer.

Screenshot 10

Long Sleeves Only

Forget about your insecurities and put on short-sleeved shirts instead! While it can be flattering for a bare décolleté, covering up more will not make you look matronly. Styling a right turtleneck draws the eye up, which means you will pay less attention to any extra weight around your midsection.

Matching Lipstick And Dress

If you plan to wear a black sweater, it is a neat idea to put on pink lipstick to match. This is a color combination that works well together. However, it is not a good idea to match your top and lipstick. It will usually not be a true match.

Screenshot 11

Matching Lipstick And Dress

The difference is only going to make you look weird! That visual interest will look playful and fun no matter what color you chose to wear. But choosing the right ones will have an even greater impact. Avoid colors that make you look older.

“Old Lady” Handbags

People refer to large bags as “old lady” bags for a reason. It is no longer cool to look like you have all of your belongings with you! Kick them to the curb and go for something smaller and more elegant.

Screenshot 12

“Old Lady” Handbags

Trust us; there is no need for you to bring everything with you whenever you step out for drinks with friends. When deciding what to show off every day, be selective. You can keep wearing all of your favorite pieces, just with a more youthful twist.

Undergarment Lines

You might have the most beautiful clothes, but they will not look right if you are wearing the wrong undergarments. If the bra shows through the shirt, all of your efforts will go to waste. To avoid embarrassing yourself, you should invest in seamless underwear.

Screenshot 13

Undergarment Lines

This is a good idea if you do not want to experience what happened to Faye Dunaway. Also, having this problem can be a little embarrassing, especially if you’re dressed in a light color, and everyone can see what’s inside your clothes.

Jersey Fabric

We agree that the jersey is comfy. Sadly, it likes to cling to the body like nothing else. It is not the best thing to wear if you want to hide problem areas. When it comes to this, you are better off wearing silk, cotton, or wool.

Screenshot 14

Jersey Fabric

You can always get loose jersey pieces or bed sheets if you really like the material. A form of draping fabric made of wool, cotton, and synthetic fabric —wearing jersey fabric— has the ability to accentuate every curve and inch of your body that you may not want to improve.

Tan Stockings/Pantyhose

If you need to wear stockings or pantyhose, the safest options would be black or nude. However, you should forget all about wearing something tan. Trust us, you should forget all about the “four shades darker than your skin tone” rule.

Screenshot 15

Tan Stockings/Pantyhose

It is only going to make you look like you have a weird tan on your legs! The nude-colored fishnet is a great alternative. They look fantastic. Wolford makes a superb one. One final point, never wear a strappy sandal pantyhose or a mule!

Overdoing It With Powder

Powder makeup used to be the only option we have, but this is no longer the case. You should ditch it because it will highlight your imperfections instead of hiding them. When you are buying makeup, it is a better idea to go for liquids and creams.

Screenshot 16

Overdoing It With Powder

The finish tends to look much smoother and subtler. That’s not going to build upon your face. Also, avoid having to dust it with a brush on your face. To use it for specific areas, such as the T-zone, use a powder puff.

Hiding Your Figure

For some reason, people start to wear loose items of clothing when they get older. You should not do the same thing because it will make you look frumpy! We promise you that it is more than fine to wear something that hugs your curves.

Screenshot 17

Hiding Your Figure

Make sure to get the right size so that your outfit is more flattering. So, instead of reaching for your beloved blazer, turn to a more fitted blazer with colorful accents. It doesn’t do you any favors to streamline your figure, and yes, this includes those oversized blazers you love so much.

Keeping The Same Hairdo

We can’t think of anything more boring than having a single hairstyle for the rest of your life. It is fun to mix it up by changing the color or length of your hair! When you need to shake things up, you should go to your hairdresser.

Screenshot 18

Keeping The Same Hairdo

This might be the thing you need to feel like a brand-new person. A new haircut, like high cheekbones, bold brows, and full lips, can open up your face and accentuate the things that make you look younger. If you can’t decide, then get someone to recommend what looks best for you!

Minis

It is wise to remember that minis are mostly made for young girls and women. Steer clear of this style when you are older because it will only make you look like you are trying too hard. It does not matter how nice your legs are.

Screenshot 19

Minis

For older ladies, it is better to stick to just above the knee and nothing more. No matter your age, you should have the right to flaunt your legs proudly in a colorful skirt. There’s no need for something to wear that goes inches past the knee.

Pieces With A Story

A dress might have sentimental value, but you need to ask yourself if you really need to wear it. We know that it reminded you of a special event a long time ago, but this is not a good enough reason to put something on.

Screenshot 20

Pieces With A Story

This is especially true if it no longer fits like it used to. At the very least, get it altered. Whether or not it’s pretty, you need to style it properly or fashionably; if you want to wear it, you don’t want to look older than what you intended to appear.

Trendy Sunglasses

You do not need to wear a pair of sunglasses only because it is chic. We have all seen the hip, young people and their dark, square glasses. However, they do not go as nicely on people with wrinkles and eye bags.

Screenshot 21

Trendy Sunglasses

Ditch the trend and go for something lighter when it comes to both shade and weight. For a more youthful look, choose eyewear that makes you look younger by looking at frame style and color. Wrong eyewear frames can date us and make us look our age.

Dark Lipstick

Before you put on a dark shade of lipstick, you should know that it can bring attention to every line on your lips. If you want people to look at your lips without seeing these flaws, you should pick a light hue.

Screenshot 22

Dark Lipstick

Before you put on anything bold and dark, you should probably exfoliate the dead skin cells away. Red or neutral tone lipsticks will make your teeth appear whiter, which in turn will give you a more youthful smile. A lighter color will also attract light to your lips and make them appear larger.

Bad Color Choices

You should look at your skin tone before you pick what color to wear. People with cool skin undertones will look better in cool colors such as greys and blues. On the other hand, warm colors such as yellows and reds will suit those with warm undertones.

Screenshot 23

Bad Color Choices

If you don’t follow this rule, you might look washed out. It’s important to know which colors can brighten your complexion, similar to understanding the clothing choices that complement your body shape. A pop of color can be youthful and fun, but it doesn’t have to be worn from head-to-toe.

Not Showing Your Neck

Did you think that you can hide your wrinkles with a turtleneck? It does to a certain point, but we do not think it is worth being hot and constricted. You are actually better off wearing a top with a v-neck or a scoop neck.

Screenshot 24

Not Showing Your Neck

If you want something that looks more modest, you can’t go wrong with a collared shirt. A turtleneck only tells the rest of the world that you are trying to use the extra inches of fabric to hide something, even if you feel the need to stay warm during the colder months.

All Black Everything

Every person out there probably knows that black clothes come with a slimming effect. However, you should be aware that it can wash you out as well. Skin usually gets lighter the older you get, so you need to be careful with this color as you age.

Screenshot 25

All Black Everything

Make sure to balance things out with a touch of bright color. Black is popular because it is so versatile, but it can make you seem older with its starkness. Choose browns and grays for your new go-to versatile pieces, which will make you seem younger and more approachable.

Tweed

You should avoid tweed unless you are trying to look a decade older than you really are. But then again, we doubt that anyone wants that to happen. This is a material that only looks nice on little kids and folks in their nineties.

Screenshot 26

Tweed

If you like menswear, you are going to look better in pinstripes and houndstooth. The fabric can add inches to your figure, making you appear heavier than you truly are. So, rather than slip on a tweed suit, opt for a linen-blend or 120s-wool pick that slims and streamlines your appearance.

Resisting Denim

Denim is something that can shed years off of your age. If you want to conceal certain areas and still look nice, a dark wash will help you out. On top of that, a darker shade is much easier to dress up.

Screenshot 27

Resisting Denim

In fact, you can look very nice by putting on some heels or pairing them with a blazer. They emphasize youth and thus do a great deal to knock off your appearance for a few years. Nobody’s going to think you’re frumpy if you dress stylishly! There are many styles of clothes that are also fairly ageless.

Chunky Jewelry

When it comes to jewelry, you should steer clear of chunky costume pieces. They have not been cool for decades now, so you should forget all about them. Bubble necklaces are out, but delicate pieces are in. Bar necklaces and small studs go well with almost anything. They are subtle, but they are chic and classy.

Screenshot 28

Chunky Jewelry

They are subtle, but they are chic and classy. Although big, chunky pieces can give off a bohemian look, they quickly become outdated as well. Phillips advises reaching for simple cuff bracelets, thin hoop earrings, a tennis bracelet, or thin chain necklaces for a younger vibe.

Stretchy Jeans

We also love stretchy jeans because they are the most comfortable pieces of clothing out there. However, you should be careful since they can also make you look frumpy. The good news is that it does not have to be this way.

Screenshot 29

Stretchy Jeans

The only thing you need to do is to buy ones that have 2% elastic fiber. Your best bet is slim-fitting jeans with a bit of stretch. If you are pear-shaped, opt for a slight flare. Slim or skinny fits can get away with athletic and apple shapes. Baggy jeans tend to make you look older.

Nothing Tight

As a rule of thumb, tight clothes will make you look younger, and baggy ones will make you look older. Most older people assume that they should avoid form-fitting clothes, but this is wrong. The truth is that your clothes should suit your body shape. This is the best way to achieve a flattering silhouette!

Screenshot 30

Nothing Tight

Although you should still take pride in your figure, it will only make you look like you’re trying too hard to find a younger version of yourself by showing it off through sexy clothing. Find clothes that compliment your features in more appropriate and adult-worthy ways instead of celebrating your body through a series of crop tops and tight dresses.

Chunky Sneakers

There is no way that you have missed the way chunky booties, heels, and sneakers have gotten more popular. Before you try them out, you should know that they will add pounds to you and make you look older. It is better to go for kitten heels, ankle strap flats, and other sleek shoes that are more flattering.

Screenshot 31

Chunky Sneakers

Swap them out for a pointy-toed pump if you’re still wearing flats or low heels, like these, instead, which will both up the sexiness factor on your favorite date-night outfit and help you look sophisticated without crossing the line into matronly. Not a heels person? Go instead for a pair of pointy-toed or ballet flats.

Too Trendy

The goal is to look trendy but be careful not to look too trendy. It is a good idea to ditch a trend as soon as it goes out the window. After all, people will look at you weirdly if you wore something popular last year but not anymore.

Screenshot 32

Too Trendy

If you want to play it safe, invest in classics such as leather and plaid because they will almost always look chic. Buy it and consider these classic fashion upgrades to make you look expensive if you really love something.

Jacket Around The Waist

Do you remember the time when people thought it was neat to tie a jacket around the waist? If not, you were likely not yet born. We know that it can be tiresome to bring your coat or jacket with you all the time, but this will only make your waist and hips seem bigger.

Screenshot 33

Jacket Around The Waist

Just wrap it over your shoulders! This may make you look a bit older as well, but at least they don’t make you look fat. Needless to say, this style was very nostalgic and brought back lots of high school memories.

Tanning

You should avoid tanning outside because it is bad for your skin. Even though you will look healthy right after that, you will suffer in 25 years. No one wants to get sunspots and wrinkles because they are annoying and hard to deal with.

Screenshot 34

Tanning

Tanning products are better if you are trying to get a summertime glow without risking your skin. Trust us; this will pay off in the long run. In fact, sun exposure, including redness and uneven pigmentation, is the No. 1 reason for early signs of aging in the skin.

Flowery Prints

There are times when your outfit can use a floral touch. However, it can be tricky to wear it without looking like an old lady. If you go for a floral dress, you should make sure that it fits your body to a tee. Anything baggy is definitely a no-no.

Screenshot 35

Flowery Prints

Take a look at these ladies who got it right! While floral prints can be chic in moderation, they only make others think you’re trying to access a younger version of yourself—one that would gladly wear large floral prints from head to toe.

Split Ends

We have already talked about hair, but you should also keep in mind that long hair will make you look older. Anyone who wants to look youthful should get regular haircuts. As you get older, your hair gets thinner. Aside from changing your hairdo now and then, it is important to get rid of split ends!

Screenshot 36

Split Ends

Split ends lead to dry and brittle hair. Trim your ends every 4-6 weeks to keep your hair looking healthy. Brittle hair is most likely to get frizzy and add years to your hair. Choose a hair color with a rich, conditioning formula to coat each strand, and be sure to have a deep condition of 1x per week.

Too Much Blush

You should be careful when you apply blush because the execution needs to be perfect. If you put it in the wrong area or put on too much, it will age you. The effect is not supposed to be “in your face.”

Screenshot 37

Too Much Blush

It is meant to be faint, so you should always blend it out if you ever put too much on! The right blush can brighten dull skin, create the illusion of cheekbones and make you look younger. Blush helps bring warmth to the face and creates a healthy look

Only Wearing Flats

We know that no one really likes to wear heels all the time. However, it is safer to wear them over heels if you are going for style. A little heel is going to make a world of difference. The best news is that there are now styles that will let you be stylish and comfy at the same time.

Screenshot 38

Only Wearing Flats

No other accessory adds to the look of more years than sensible shoes. While flats can be a helpful pair of shoes to keep around, opting for stylish boots, heels, and loafers adds more dimension to your outfit.

Logos For All To See

We do not understand why people enjoy wearing clothes that have a logo on them. It feels like a way of saying, “I’m trying too hard.” This has never been a good look on anyone. On top of that, you should not wear a piece of clothing because the brand name is on it.

Screenshot 39

Logos For All To See

Choose something because you like it! It will only make it appear as if you’re trying to access your younger self by wearing brand logos that are usually associated with teens. As a rule of thumb, while wearing clothing from young brands is perfectly acceptable, you have crossed a line when you proudly display a brand’s logo on any of your clothing.

Long Skirts

Hemlines usually become longer as people grow older. You do not need to do this in a boring way. When done wrong, it might backfire on you and make you look like a grandmother. This is not a problem if you are tall enough or at least wear boots and high heels.

Screenshot 40

Long Skirts

Just make sure to get the proportions right! Shapeless skirts that fall over your ankles can kill your looks immediately. By ditching the maxi, you can look 10 years younger. Even if they happen to fall mid-calf, pleated or pencil skirts can change your look; a feminine skirt paired with heels will undoubtedly make you look youthful.

Slouchy And Slouchy

This is probably the most basic fashion rule in the world. If you are wearing a tight top, your bottoms should be loose. If you are wearing a loose top, your bottoms should be tight. This is a good way to balance things out without overdoing anything. Follow this rule if you do not want to look frumpy!

Screenshot 41

Slouchy And Slouchy

Failure to dress properly can draw attention to parts of your body that you did not intend to showcase. Follow this rule to dress more proportionately: opt for a skinnier silhouette on the bottom half of your body when wearing a flowy top, and go for the opposite effect when wearing a more constricting top.

Not Showing Your Waist

You might not believe this, but loose clothes are not the way to go if you want to hide bulges. In fact, it just backfires on you because it will make you seem even bigger. When you wear something baggy, you should put on a belt.

Screenshot 42

Not Showing Your Waist

After all, this is a great way to show off your figure while remaining modest. To hide the parts of your body that make you feel self-conscious, instead of wearing oversized clothing. For example, at the smallest part of your waist, a high-waisted pencil skirt cinches you, creating a flattering, youthful shape.

Heavy Black Eye Makeup

It is not a good idea to put on thick black eyeliner if you want your eyes to pop. The only thing that this is going to do is bring your wrinkles to the spotlight. It is better to pick a lighter color and to apply the liner gently.

Screenshot 43

Heavy Black Eye Makeup

When you shop for eyeliner, you should pick something in brown, olive green, and gray. But makeup can actually make you look even older if you’re not careful with your application, so you have to make sure you have the right products and know-how.

Clothes That Aren’t Tailored

It is not always easy to find clothes that look good on you without having them altered. You might think that it is too expensive to visit a tailor, but the truth is that you can get a shirt or jacket fixed for less than $35 a piece.

Clothes That Aren't Tailored

Clothes That Aren’t Tailored

Of course, the best thing to do is to ask your dry-cleaner for a quote. Dress for the size you are, not the size you were—but hiding in big, baggy clothes is not flattering. Tailored, clean lines look sharper.

Drugstore Reading Glasses

Eyesight usually gets worse when you get older. However, this is no reason to use those reading glasses available at drugstores. Make sure to consider your face before you invest in a certain frame. Generally, it is better to avoid skinny and cheap ones. Go for bold and big frames that highlight your features.

Drugstore Reading Glasses

Drugstore Reading Glasses

Here’s the thing. You can’t look younger until you feel younger. And to feel that your vision plays a huge role. If you have problems with the sun or the glare, there’s a chance people will tell you that your eyes have grown old along with you.

Bras That Don’t Fit

We can’t believe that we have to say this, but many women are wearing ill-fitting bras. Trust us; it will be easier to look better when you figure out your right size. These days, you can find pieces that have support, comfort, and style all in one. Saggy breasts do not look good on anyone!

Bras That Don't Fit

Bras That Don’t Fit

If you’ve come this far and you’re still wearing the wrong size bra, then you’ve missed out on comfort and support for decades. Not only that, but it can be transformative for your wardrobe to find the right bra size, which will eventually be perfectly suited to your figure.

Chunky Heels

It is fine to wear chunky heels if you are going to a black-tie event. In fact, they will look perfect on those occasions. Outside of that, however, they will only look outdated. When you need to wear heels, it is usually much easier to look good in a pointed heel.

Chunky Heels

Chunky Heels

This still is going to make you appear lighter. Wearing chunky heels will only make you look like you are trying to turn back the clock. Not only that, but this can make your body’s bottom half look heavier. It’s best to stick to those with a point to keep your appearance proportional for occasions that require a heel.

Silk Scarves

You should not wear silk scarves to try and hide your neck wrinkles and lines. These things are only going to draw the eyes of others to that part of the body. On top of that, it is going to add the illusion of a heavy upper half.

Silk Scarves

Silk Scarves

We are sure that this is not a problem that you want to deal with! In particular, a scarf tied around your neck will only draw attention to these imperfections if wrinkles and lines have already made their way to your neck. And, as we have already discussed, your figure will struggle against streamlining, making your top-half look heavier.

Pearls

People usually associate pearls with sophistication, but you should steer clear of them. We do not care if you plan to attend a charity ball or two! Pearls will make you look older the moment that you put them on. When you need to accessorize, silver is just as sophisticated. The best part is that it is also cheaper!

Pearls

Pearls

You should avoid dressing like a Stepford wife, regardless of whether or not you host multiple dinner parties a week, as one pearl necklace has the ability to age you significantly. Choose chic silver accessories instead, which prove to be timeless.

Boot-Cut Jeans

If you want to appear shorter and squatter than you really are, boot-cut jeans will do the trick. However, we are sure that you do not want that to happen. When it comes to jeans, you should get something that has a slim fit. This will make your silhouette look a whole lot better! It is easier to dress up as well.

Boot Cut Jeans

Boot Cut Jeans

It may be hard to wear dramatically flared jeans or restrictive skinny jeans. Flares can look aging, and if you have slim legs, skinny jeans really look best. Because the slight flare at the ankle balances your hips and thighs, creating an overall lean look, Bootcut jeans flattering on everyone.

Solar Shield Sunglasses

You should not wear a pair of Solar Shield sunglasses unless you are already a senior citizen. As a matter of fact, you should probably avoid these products even then. After all, they are simply too huge and too ugly. Even though they will block out sunlight very well, you will not look good in them.

Not only do eyeglasses help you see your eyes or protect them, they are an accessory. For each occasion, having different glasses can help you maintain a fresh look while simultaneously looking younger. So, don’t hold back, indulge in styles that work, look younger and have fun being you.

Transition Glasses

A lot of people get transition glasses for the sake of convenience, which we understand. However, is it really worth wearing something that tacky? On top of that, you might have to wear sunglasses indoors. This is not a good look on anyone. Not only that, but it is not that hard to switch reading glasses for sunglasses.

They can make you look either older or younger, depending on your choice of glasses. In your perception, details such as color, pattern, size, shape, and style all have a part to play. And because spectacles cover a large area of your face and eyes, your character has a great influence on them.

Jean Sets

Do you remember when jean sets were all the rage? We have come a long way since then! If you wear a black-wash denim jacket, you should not wear pants that match. You have to pick between those two pieces. Whatever you do, you should not wear these two pieces together! Please, have mercy on us.

Some women think, for some reason, that wearing denim is less appropriate the older you get. But this is one piece of clothing that can make you look younger. You can still wear your jeans by choosing a dark wash and pairing them with a blazer or a nice blouse and heels.

A Huge Wallet

You should not bring a big wallet with you unless you want to look old. Aside from the fact that it is an outdated look, it is a hassle to carry around. Why do you need all your family photos, 20 cards, and a pen? Trust us; you will be fine with a small one that will fit right in your pocket.

Even then, small wallets are in right now, so if you’ve ever seen someone with a big wallet, you might have to tell them to change that. Well, actually, some people don’t even own a wallet and just put their money and cards inside their bags.

Jewelry Sets

In this day and age, it is hard for us to believe that people still wear matching jewelry. This is a boring look, so we hope that they all stop! We have gone past the need for our rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings to all match. If you want to look stylish, you should instead mix and match your metal pieces.

Jewelry Sets

Choosing a set over a mixed and matched ensemble could show your age because, instead of the boss you are, you will seem out-of-touch. Use jewelry that compliments each other, such as matching blacks with gold, large-small ring necklaces, and studded earrings with a large buckled belt.

Jeans & Running Sneakers

The truth is the jeans and running sneakers never made for a stylish combination. We are going to be the first ones to admit that it is comfortable. This is the reason that a lot of moms and dads like it so much. However, if you are gunning for style, this is an outfit that you do not want to be seen in.

Jeans & Running Sneakers

Jeans & Running Sneakers

Picking jeans that don’t fit well is another mistake most men make. The pants are either too outdated or too baggy to put on. There are ripped jeans on the other side with holes getting bigger by the day, and that’s not very age-appropriate again.

High Socks & Shorts

High socks and shorts make up another combination that makes us cringe. This is an awful look that is best left to little children. Any adult that tries this out is pretty much letting the world know, “I have no style.” If you wear sneakers, make sure to wear low socks that do not go over the top of the shoes.

High Socks & Shorts

High Socks & Shorts

While the occasional day clad in socks and sneakers is perfectly acceptable, it is certainly a fashion faux-pas to combine this combination with almost every item of clothing in your wardrobe. Even worse, you appear childish and well out of your age-appropriate fashion repertoire by pairing your sneakers with tall socks.

Short Haircut

Short haircuts only age women. Take the focus away from your face with longer styles, not pixie cuts and bobs. If you are dying to have short hair, all we ask is that you don’t get an awful chop as Kate Gosselin did.

Bringing out your features, especially your cheekbones and eyes, a pixie cut can make you look younger! Ensure you have the right hair products to provide you with the style you want if you go with a pixie.

Elastic Waist Pants

When talking about fashion, one of the things that we are most grateful for would be stylish athletic clothes. There are now yoga pants and “athleisure” clothes that have rendered elastic waist pants a thing of the past. You do not need to worry because these things are not only stylish but also comfy!

Maybe you saw them and wanted to try them yourself! They tend to be a high-waist option, and a noticeable waistband is meant for them. Women of all body types could easily pull this style off. Without risking an unflattering fashion, you can still attain amazing comfort and a defined waist.

Old Ties

Let us see what Jill Merriman, a networking expert, has to say about ties. “Gone are the days of the wide, stripped 1970s tie or the 1980s skinny ties. Instead, wear a trendy tie such as a current floral print to appear hip and youthful,” she reported. This is very important when you are going to a fancy event!

That said, young men often don’t wear neckwear today, so you can also skip it, leave the top of the top two buttons open, but make sure not to unbutton your shirt all the way down to the belly button because that makes you look like a wannabe Cassanova or Hugh Hefner.

Eyeglass Chains

We are always puzzled when people still wear eyeglasses that come with a chain around the neck. Why on earth is anyone wearing this if they are not yet in their eighties? Folks, you should have your glasses either on your face or inside your bag. They do not need to dangle off your neck.

Eyeglass Chains

Chains on eyeglasses are also a sign of being old school, as well as aviators. They are very comfortable and stylish at times, but not for those who want to look much younger. You can turn your eyewear into a fashionable accessory that will instantly transform and enhance your look if you are an older woman who loves to remain stylish.

Wrong Color Makeup

You might have perfect skin, but it will not matter if you are wearing bronzer and foundation in the wrong shade. When you are not wearing the right color, you will only look ashy. If you have no idea which shade to buy, you can always visit a makeup counter and ask a sales associate to help you out.

There is no better way than trying to look too young to look older. Also, a fine line exists between trying to look more youthful and just looking bad. We know in your make-up look, a bright pop of color is fun. But it’s more likely to look out of place once you reach a certain age.

Glitter Overload

Can you really consider yourself an adult if you still have glitter on your face? Kindly leave this trend to teenagers and young adults. The sparkly things will only make people pay attention to all of your fine lines and wrinkles. You should opt for something matte if you want to look good but also appropriate.

A bright, bold eye shadow or a shimmer and glitter product will make more noticeable wrinkles, and it won’t make you look younger. These products do not flatter or look attractive on skin or lids, beginning to show tiny lines or have rough patches.

Blue Eyeshadow

Eyeshadow palettes come in all sorts of colors, but it is not a good idea to wear blue eyeshadow unless you want to seem older. You can lighten up the eye area with nude colors. This is going to make you look younger and hip! For reference, it is never wrong to try out beige, grey, and tan eyeshadow.

Colors like “bright blues, purples [and] greens tend to highlight features that point to a woman’s age. The days of wearing blue eyeshadow should be behind you. Many people suggest that you try darker, more muted colors, such as navy rather than bright blue or deep jade rather than green.

Overdrawn Lips

Have you started to do the same thing that Kylie Jenner does to her lips? We are sad to report that it is not a good idea to apply your lipstick so heavily. After all, the chance of getting it wrong is way too high. You should just remain true to your face’s natural features so that you do not overdo it.

Over the years, if your lips have begun to become thin, to look younger, it takes just a tad to change their shape and bring them more balance. To do so, we want to overdraw a touch of your lip line, just enough to give more plumpness to a subtle illusion.

Dangly Earrings

We all know that it is fun to wear dangly earrings. However, they tend to lead the eye to a spot that many older women try to hide. The pieces often end just above the neck area, which might have fine lines. This is why it does not look good on people who are already done with their twenties.

There will be an elongating effect on your face with drop earrings, making you look years younger. Light hoops or stud earrings provide alternatives that, as we age, can work better. Look for styles with a post rather than a wire that goes through the piercing if you enjoy wearing statement earrings.

Locket Necklaces

This type of necklace only works when you are a little girl. However, it will not look right or even good on someone in their fifties and above. Almost everyone uses a smartphone, so you can just look at that photo of your husband over there! There is no need to wear something so chunky every single day.

A locket is a piece of jewelry that is profoundly personal. To the wearer, it has special significance, whether it was a gift or something they chose for their collection. Lockets open in some way that allows the wearer to place something meaningful inside, most often pendants on a necklace chain.

Cargo Shorts

Do we really have to explain this one? Cargo shorts are the worst offenders when it comes to the world of fashion. We kind of understand the appeal of the extra storage spaces. However, we really do not know why you will want to keep your water bottle and flashlight on your person on a regular night out.
