FASHION DO'S AND DONT'S

Wear this, not that: Styles that make you look old

Fashion tips that will change your whole fashion wardrobe

In Summary

• Wear oversized clothing on one half of your body at a time. If you hide your silhouette, you’ll actually look older than you are.

• Your dress code is enough statement even before you speak

Ever looked at a person, and with his or her dress code, and you can guess his age?

Yes, some people are old but we dress well while others are young, but dress like their grandmothers and fathers.

Your dress code is enough statement even before you speak

Here are some tips, as to why people keep guessing your age wrong. 

Stop: Wearing ill-fitting bras

A bra that is too big or too small will show in how your clothes hang on your body. Instead toss away the stretched ones, or those that have wires pocking out. All it takes is one really good bra to completely change your life.

Stop: Wearing jeans that are stretched out

Comfortable jeans are a necessity, but if they have stretched a lot, it means they look baggy on you.

This means, getting jeans that are a hybrid between an ultra-rigid and super stretchy can save your look.

Stop: Wearing old clothes

At least clean out your closet once a year or donate the old clothes.

This helps you start evaluating your style, and help you clean out the torn faded clothes that are in your wardrobe.

Otherwise, if you don’t clean out your closet, you will have you taking up space that could make room for newer fresh clothes.

Stop: Wearing black all the time

Mix it up with colours, wearing all black as if you are always going to a funeral makes you look dull.

Pair with brighter hues makes you more flattering and brighten your overall mood as well.

Stop: Wearing outdated eyeglasses

Choose your best frames depending on the shape of your face. Frame shapes change slowly, if you haven’t updated yours in several years, they may be ageing you.

Very few frameless ones don’t make you look older. Choose a modern frame that makes a fun statement

Stop: Wearing oversized everything

When choosing pieces, go for those that are not overwhelmingly loose.

Wear oversized on one half of your body at a time. If you hide your silhouette, you’ll actually look older than you are.

Stop: Wearing the wrong underwear

Pantie lines are very unflattering, so ensure your underwear lays smooth on your skin.

Thongs or seamless panties are a good option with edges that are invisible under your pants or dress

Limit the chunky jewellery

Large heavy jewellery can also be outdated. Instead, opt for delicate, timeless pieces like thin necklaces and bracelets.

Dress your shape and size

By knowing and understanding your body shape (both your horizontal and vertical proportions)you can create visual balance and harmony of your body.

 Visual balance and harmony are pleasing to the eye as you will know how to dress the colours, patterns, sizes and styles. You will definitely look good.
