Fashion Mistakes That Make You Look Older.

During the winter months, we want to stay warm, but we still want to be fashionable. Layering keeps you warm, but be careful how you combine pieces. Wearing too many bulky items can make you look frumpy, not well put together and older than you want to look.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to look younger, but be sure to stay in your lane, if you know what I mean.

Here is a list of mistakes made by women that make us look older.

1. Wearing bulky layers.

Winter fashion is all about the layers, but believe it or not there is a right way to do it and a wrong way. If you’re wearing a bulky sweater, opt for a lightweight coat with a slender shape. Otherwise, bulky sweater + bulky coat + chunky scarf = way too much bulk. And of course, always remember the top-and-bottom-ratio rule: If you’re wearing a loose top, wear more form-fitting pants, and vice versa. It’s all about balance when it comes to layering.

2. Wearing cheap fabrics.

As you get older, it’s all about buying fewer clothes, but focusing on quality over cheap and cheerful designs and fabrics.

3. Trying to be too “on trend”.

Treat catwalk trends as inspiration, rather than something to be replicated exactly. choose the accents of a trend that you like, and work them into your existing wardrobe of quality basics.

4. Trying to disguise yourself.

If there are parts of your body where you don’t feel comfortable with a tight fit, then choose outfits that skim over them, rather than lots of floatyf fabric, which is very ageing.

5. Being shy with pattern.

If you’re going to wear pattern, it’s better to go bold rather than dainty. Delicate patterns are too girly to wear as you get older, as they have an ageing effect. Instead take inspiration from the Italians and go for rich colours, or choose dramatic, bold prints.

6. Wearing the wrong underwear.

I can’t emphasise enough the importance of wearing the right underwear. If you’re wearing an old, saggy bra, the distance between your chest and your hip will really be shortened. So invest in a good bra and Visual Panty Lines under your clothes is another big no-no when it comes to looking good!

Now that you know, avoid these mistakes and you will look great.

Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are one of this year’s fall trends.  This trend is not for everyone, because they can be hard to fit.  Depending on your body type you may have to try on many styles before you find the right one for you. The good thing is, there are lots of styles to choose from.

Look for styles that will compliment your lifestyle.  They range from form fitting to loose fitting, dressy to casual.  There are even formal jumpsuits that you can wear to a wedding or any other formal event.

The most popular ones, I’ve noticed, are the very loose fitting ones.  They will fit almost any body type, because they’re very forgiving.  So, if you think you can pull it off, go for it.
