In regards to the world of feminine fashion, it seems you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t. But if find your style tends to be a little too conservative and boring, you should definitely try to spice things up if you want to look a little younger.
A bad example of dressing too conservatively would be pairing tweed with pearls or wearing boxy pants suits over frilly blouses. When worn together, they’re too much, but if you wear them separately with more modern pieces, they’ll work great! You can pair your frilly blouse with a pair of blue jeans or those lovely pearl earrings with a little black dress.
Never in the history of fashion, did capri pants flattered anyone. Man or woman, old or young, tall or short. This cut that ends a little too far under the knee yet not far enough to reach the ankle is an abomination that somehow still exists despite what we would like to think of people's better judgment.
Those dreaded capris somehow make you look shorter and older at the same time. Capris make your legs look shorter because their cut stops around your calves, making your legs look wider, and that's just not flattering. Ditch these unflattering trousers for something more modern, like wide-legged pants.
Too Much Pastel
Depending on your natural complexion, wearing too much pastel clothing can make you look a bit lackluster and dull. Those with light, fair complexion can appear washed out when wearing these, while darker skin can contrast it beautifully. But not to worry, if your skin is light and you like wearing pastels, you still can. Just pair them with other shades and hues.
Experiment with your closet and be frank about which hues highlight your features and which ones wash you out. When wanting to wear an item in a relatively muted color, pair it with an item in a warmer color, and you will have a much younger, happier look.
As soon as the weather becomes a little wintery, we all reach for our favorite knitwear, and why shouldn't we? It's comfy and warm! However, if your outfit makes you look more like a teddy bear, it can get pretty tricky trying to look younger. Though tricky doesn't mean impossible.
The easier way to wear that precious sweater your aunt knitted for you is to try to create a more defined overall silhouette. Pair your larger pieces of knitwear with other items that are more form-fitting, like a good pair of jeans, or something more stylish, like a pencil skirt and boots.
Tweed is a rough-surfaced woolen cloth, typically of mixed-flecked colors, that was originally produced in Scotland. Despite being a lovely fabric, wearing too much of it can make you look uptight and even a little smug. Just because it worked for Sherlock Holmes, doesn't mean it can work for just anyone.
Wearing a two-piece tweed suit might be too much, so to offset any unwanted impressions, we'd recommend twinning a tweed blazer with slim black trousers and pointy heels. Or, if you're in possession of cool tweed pants, pair them with a shirt or blouse of lighter fabric that will contrast the heavy wool.
