Your closet will feel “old” if half of its contents are things you aren’t in love with. If you buy pieces that are simply “fine” or that feel “age-appropriate,” then your mood will reflect your ambivalence towards what you’re wearing. Only buy pieces you’re excited about when you try them on in the changing room, and leave everything else alone.
That way, you will only dress in outfits that make you feel like your best self, and your attitude and confidence will reflect that. Every day will be a “good outfit day,” and you will never feel like you’re hiding away or living in the background.
Not only are those designer flip-flops an easy way for department stores to make some extra cash, but they’re also tawdry! Tacky logos and ugly jewels draw way too much attention to your feet and not the good kind.
Most people can easily tell if it's a cute shoe, but there’s only one demographic that really likes these shoes, and it’s not a young one. Besides, wearing flip-flops does not provide your foot with proper support, so opting for sandals is probably a better option anyway. Unless you are going to places other than the pool or the beach, there really is no reason for you to wear them.
Wearing Two-Piece Formal Dresses
If you love the coverage and comfort that this silhouette offers you, and (most importantly) you feel beautiful in it, then keep this in your closet. The same thing goes for pretty much any item on this list — sure, there are items and practices we would advise against, but overall, we are just people on the internet with an opinion.
You call the shots on what you wear and how you feel in it. That being said — if the two-piece formal dress in your closet is not something you actively love, odds are it is making you look older than you are and that it doesn't flatter you. Don't be afraid to try on "younger" dresses.
Chunky shoes include Crocs, which are not okay. Those shoes were originally made for doctors so they can wear something that is light, supportive, and breathable during their long shifts. If you aren't a doctor in the middle of a shift, there is no excuse for you to wear them.
If you want to dress to impress, don't even think about wearing chunky shoes, they'll only make you look clownish. While you might want a more stable shoe with ample ankle support, that doesn't mean you have to settle for unsightly orthopedic footwear. There are plenty of options out there that are both stylish and healthy.
Years ago, finding a shade of foundation that was the exact match for your skin was nearly impossible. This drove people into finding alternatives such as baby powder that was much lighter than their own skin tone and gave them a ghostly look. A ghostly look you definitely don't want on yourself.
We're all for embracing your pale skin but don't overdo it by slathering on foundation and powder that are two shades lighter than your skin. You want your face to look as natural as possible, so try to get a shade of foundation as close to your natural skin color, then add a bit of color with blush and lipstick.
