Style Mistakes That Are Aging & How to Fix Them

Whether you’re a fashionista or a woman who just wants to look great, I’m sure you don’t want to wear styles that are aging. And, let’s face it, if you’re not paying attention to what you wear, making these style mistakes is possible.

I’m here to help you prevent that from happening. Here are some  aging style mistakes I see and how to fix them.

#1  Long vests and shapeless jackets. How your clothes drape your body is major when it comes to your appearance.  If you wear tops that are too big in order to camouflage, you are bringing attention to the areas you want to conceal and you will appear larger.

Instead, choose jacket styles that accentuate your shape –  a short jacket that nips at the waist.

Best Choice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#2  Elastic waist pants and jeans that get baggy  are aging.

Instead  wear slim fitting pants that fit well and choose jeans that have enough elasticity to stretch but not enough to become baggy.

Great Choice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#3 A Frumpy Handbag: No matter how well you dress a single element that is out of line could throw you whole outfit off into the aging category. One item that is sure to do this is the frumpy handbag. What is a frumpy handbag? It’s a handbag that is one colour, is usually a square or rectangular shape, and has a wide strap

Avoid

 

 

 

 

 

 

Instead choose a stylish handbag one that complements your outfit. Or choose one in a colour that brings out a colour in your outfit.

 

Great Choice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

# 4 Undergarments That Aren’t Doing Their Job and Avoiding  Shape Wear : Undergarments are the foundation of all great looking clothing.  Avoid bras that don’t fit and don’t forgo shape wear when wearing clingy clothes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bumps are aging and shape wear (they don’t have to be super tight to work) can fix this problem.

 

Choose shape wear

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#5 Turtlenecks and Chokers:   Are aging because they bring attention to the neckline. Don’t wear these unless you’re young.

Avoid

Instead choose V- necks and long necklaces which draw the eye downward and create more space and length.
