Cringeworthy fashion errors can truly make you look a lot older than you are and nowaday no one wants that. However, the right fashion choice will not only make you look stylish but also defines you as a person.

Because the fashion rules and guidelines are forever changing, we definitely understand if you can’t always get it right. But do not be afraid, we are here to show you exactly how to stay on trend!

Poofy, Big Hairdo

Yes we know back in the ’70s & 80’s big hair was a massive craze. If you were going for a wild hairstyle, then teasing and back-combing your hair was the direction to go.

But today, this is a very questionable look and that’s beside the damage it can do to your hair. Anyway, it looks extremely old-fashioned. The current trend is something more along the lines of soft, sleek hair.

High-Waters

We only permit you to wear high-water pants when you’re wanting to show off your funky socks. Alternatively, you should definitely keep away from these types of trousers.

When buying pants, it’s vital to first sit down and make sure that your ankles are covered. Believe us, your ankles should not be exposed during the colder seasons.Screenshot 3

Over-Plucking/Tweezing

Remember back in the day when all you ever saw were thin eyebrows on your favorite celebs? Ever wondered why you don’t see it any longer? Well, that because it’s no more a trend. In this day and age, thick, bold eyebrows are what’s trending. Bushier is better!

From a young age, you should begin applying night and eye cream even – you’ll definitely benefit later on in life.

Even though you are still young, doing this will help you slow down the aging of your skin with the use of anti-aging cream! This is a great way to stay looking young and fresh. Be sure to apply cream both in the morning and at night.

Long Sleeves Only

Arm flab is not an illusion. Regardless, do that many people even pay attention arms anyway? Well, they will look at them if you’re all covered up during the summer. So please, wear shorter sleeves in the warmer months!

Matching Lipstick And Dress

If you wanna mix up your outfits a bit, why not wear a pink lip to liven up your look. However, don’t make the mistake by applying a pomegranate lipstick to match a pomegranate blouse.

That’s a huge, no-no! Often times, it’s difficult to find a real match, and the mismatch will just look odd.

“Old Lady” Handbags

Large bags are also known as “old lady” handbags, and seriously who wants to be considered as an old lady especially if you’re young! Rather choose a small, elegant bag. It’s not like you need to carry that many things, right?

Undergarment Lines

No matter how amazing your outfit may look, if you have an underwear line, sorry but your outfit is no longer as stylish as you thought.

An undergarment that is too tight or a bra that is see-through your shirt can totally make you appear a mess!

We highly recommend that you get seamless items to avoid all those embarrassing moments. You may remember what happened to Faye Dunaway that one time? Oops.

Jersey Fabric

Regardless of how comfortable jersey material is, the fabric often emphasizes the wrong parts of the body. So rather opt for clothes made of cotton, wool, or silk.

They do a much better job of hiding parts of the body since jersey tends to stick. But if you love the fabric too much, try buying a looser fit.

Tan Stockings/Pantyhose

When deciding on tight colors, nude and black are probably the best options. Tan should not even be part of the question.

Nowadays, don’t even think about going for “four shades darker than your skin tone.” Skin tone shades are definitely the way to go!

Overdoing It With Powder

If your goal is to dry out your skin and let your makeup stick into your pores, then you should overuse the powder.

This stuff puts all your imperfections on extreme display, even if you do not have many blemishes. Rather select a liquid and cream alternative to make your face look better. You’ll thank us later!

Hiding Your Figure

When people get older they tend to wear much baggier clothing. If your goal is to highlight your figure and look younger, then form-fitting clothes will be your best friend. Loose-fitting items tend to make you look older.

Minis

The older you get, you should probably try to avoid “mini” clothing items. Especially if you’re an older woman, you shouldn’t really wear anything higher than above your knees. It’s the best way to not look inappropriate or tacky.

Pieces With A Story

However sentimental a piece of clothing may be to you, it’s sometimes not always a void reason to wear it.

If it is too big or formless, you can always have it hemmed or made into another piece of clothing. Don’t walk around in an unflattering outfit just because you kept it for a special event back in the day.

Trendy Sunglasses

Throughout the season’s various sunglasses styles become popular at different times. But, take note, you shouldn’t be wearing something just because it is trendy right now.

Currently the biggest trend is dark and square frames but you should know that oftentimes this type of style can highlight those wrinkles and bags under your eyes. Perhaps choose a more flattering, lighter pair of frames.

Dark Lipstick

In case you didn’t know but, dark lipsticks will accent all the lines on your face. Lighter shades are good at highlighting your mouth if you do not want to focus too much attention to cracks and crevices.

If you are infatuated with dark red shades, make sure to always exfoliate your lips first to make it smoother.

Bad Color Choices

There’s so much truth about how different colors work on different skin tones. If your skin has a cool undertone, it’s better to choose more cooler colors such as greys and blues.

But, if your skin has a warm undertone, warm colors like yellows and reds will enhance your complexion. Be sure to follow these guidelines if you do not want to look dull.

Not Showing Your Neck

So many people belive that wearing a turtleneck will do a good job of hiding your wrinkles, but this is actually not the case.

This neckline can also make you feel hot and restrained. Rather get clothes with v-neck or scoop necklines, a collared shirt is also great if you want to look more modest.

All Black Everything

We all love to wear black as it really makes us look super slim. Everyone knows this! However, sometimes it can make you look slightly washed out as well.

As you grow older, our skin color tends to lighten, so you should avoid all black if you’re an older person. Here’s a suggestion, perhaps wear a red shirt underneath a black jacket to make your skin pop out.

Tweed

Tweed can immediately add 10 years to your appearance. It’s a great choice if you’re a 90-year-old woman or a young child, but if you’re somewhere in-between don’t go for the look. There are more flattering looks like houndstooth or pinstripes.

Resisting Denim

On the contrary, denim is a material that will make you appear younger. If you’re wanting to hide a certain area of your body then choose darker denim. Denim is also easier to dress up, simply pair it with a blazer or heels.

Chunky Jewelry

Want to give yourself away as “old”, then you just need to wear costume jewelry. The trend is so old fashioned, so stay away from chunky bubble pieces – especially if you’re young. Bar necklaces and small stud earrings are a better call!

Stretchy Jeans

Yes we get it stretchy pants are comfy, however, they may not work for you especially if you don’t have the body of a supermodel. There’s a good chance they’ll make you look rugged. If you want to accentuate your figure, buy jeans with 2% elastic fiber.
