Even the best hair and make-up techniques won’t make up for these style mistakes – here’s what to look out for…

  1. Wearing über trendy items can easily have one of two outcomes – you either look like you’re trying too hard, or you look as if you’re getting it all wrong six months down the line. Stick with classic basic items instead, and switch things up with accessories.
  2. If you wear ill-fitting clothes, you’ll accentuate all the wrong features. There’s nothing wrong with wearing signature pieces for years, but do make sure that they fit properly and have them tailored if necessary.
  3. Ensure that your haircut stays up to date. You don’t necessarily need to chop it all off when you hit 40, but do try to update your style every now and then.
