Excessive love of oversize, total black bows and improperly chosen underwear: mistakes in style that visually make us older
Clothes have long become for us not a means of necessity, but a tool for self-expression. With the help of style, we demonstrate our “I”: character, hobbies, individuality.
In addition, thanks to clothes we can change – we can take on different roles, sometimes even the most unexpected ones. Successful and organic combinations in the image can make us visually slimmer, taller and even younger. But sometimes these fashionable tricks work in the opposite direction: an unsuccessful bow can play a cruel joke with us and add age. In the new material, we analyze what mistakes are better not to make if you do not want to look older than your age:
Excessive hobby for oversized
Oversize is definitely one of the main trends of the last few years. But, the main thing to remember is that in pursuit of trends and a fashionable agenda, you need not to lose yourself and your individuality. Not everything that glossy magazines and fashion chronicles dictate will suit you specifically.
This does not mean at all that you need to wear “sticky” clothes. It’s just that oversize should be moderate and correctly selected, starting from the characteristics of your figure and personal preferences. If you choose a shirt, jacket or oversized outerwear, you can balance the image with a laconic bottom on the figure.
Love for outdated trends
Fashion, as we all well know, is cyclical. It is no surprise to anyone now that the list of the main trends of 2021 is something that was once worn in the 80s and 90s.
But! It’s one thing if you took your 1970s flared jeans out of the closet at a time when they were again at their peak, and quite another if you are walking around in these same jeans, and people around you see this style for the first time.
This example is, of course, a little far-fetched. After all, you must admit that each person has his own unique style and there is no need to look at others or be afraid of someone’s judgments. After all, we all love good vintage. But, at the same time, sometimes you should not go to extremes and succumb to nostalgia. It just won’t paint you.
Many of us are very fond of and overly addicted to black. While black is versatile and easy to pair with other wardrobe items, total black looks can visually add some extra age to you.
To avoid this, choose more accent accessories: for example, add a colored scarf or jewelry to the image. A V-neck or scoop neckline can also help, which will slightly expose your neck, thereby balancing the bow in black tones. In addition, you can pay attention to makeup: the colorful color of lipstick can shift the emphasis on itself.
Incorrectly fitted underwear
Underwear plays a big role in the integrity of the image. Although not visible, it can ruin the look of your clothes. Choosing the right bra is very important. If it does not support and shape the breasts well, this can visually add not only extra weight to you, but also age.
Small flower print
Floral prints are like an eternal trend. From season to season, eminent designers use it in their new collections, and the main fashionistas now and then appear in images with a floral print in street style photographs.
But it is worth remembering that, firstly, you do not need to blindly follow trends, and secondly, a floral print does not always look the same. If it is a small flower, it is better to avoid such a print. Remember for yourself, this is what our grandmothers love so much.
In order not to visually seem older, it is better to choose classic prints such as stripes or polka dots, perhaps even animalistic motifs. But, even in this case, choose only what you feel comfortable in. After all, uncomfortable things are the main problem in everyone’s wardrobe.
An overabundance of accent accessories
Well-chosen accessories are needed for everyone. They make the image complete, holistic and, in the end, stylish. When choosing accessories, remember that “more” does not mean “better”. The great Coco Chanel once said: “Before leaving the house, look in the mirror and take off one accessory.” We completely agree with her.
If you do not want to look older than your age, do not get carried away with sets of necklaces, rings and bracelets. Limit yourself to one thing or laconic decorations.
