Clothes are great for boosting our spirits and helping us focus on the better aspects of our body. It is important that we find ways to use fashion to compliment our body shape and our age.
That still doesn’t mean that you can’t look refreshed and young; you just need to do it so that you don’t dress up like a 15-year old even though you are 40.Here are five clever ways to look younger and doing it in style.
1. Well-Fitting Jeans
One problem that women have when they age is that they forget about their bottoms. They get Lycra jeans because they are comfy and soft and keep using them until they fall to pieces. This sort of sagginess can quickly add years to your look and make you look younger.
Always find jeans that fit your body perfectly. You can find them in every material as long as you just make sure you spend enough time finding the right fit for you. And don’t stick to the same pair forever either.
2. The Perfect Bra
You should also spend some time and money in finding just the right bra for you. A well-supported bust can really make your waist look smaller, which will automatically take years off your look.
There are so many good high street shops that offer support in finding the right bra. Don’t be shy about asking help either. These people are trained to help you and if someone is rude to you just walk to the next shop with your credit card (that’ll teach them!).
3. Slim Shoes
It seems that as women get older they tend to opt for shoes that are either completely flat or have really heavy heels. Both of them can easily make your style look heavy and add years to your look.
It is much better option to go with slim and light heels. You don’t need them to be very high heels either, just add some heel to bring you a little bit more posture. If you do want to wear flats then make sure you go with a lightweight look.
4. Bold Colours
It is also necessary that you don’t just start using boring plain colours as you age. Adding a bold colour to your look can instantly bring more energy to your look and transform you to look much younger.
Don’t go overboard with your colour choices. Tone your look down by using more plain colours while adding some bolder elements to the look. For instance, get some simple black or navy blue pants and wear them together with bright yellow or red tops. When you are buying wholesale clothes, for example, always find new colour combinations you can use.
5. Take Care Of Makeup
You can also add more youth to your look with your makeup choices. Often people carry their makeup mistakes to older age and they can quickly start adding more years to your look then.
Don’t try to copy the makeup styles from the 20-year olds since their skin isn’t yet as mature as yours is. There are a lot of good makeup tips at the Makeup Geek website. Check these tips to ensure you aren’t making your style seem older just by using makeup the wrong way.
