Fashion is great – if it is worn the right way.

Something as simple as the colour of your outfit, its design and even how much accessories you wear can make you appear older than you are.

We found some common fashion mistakes that make you look older that you should avoid and some amazing tips.

Wearing everything loose

It is usually said that wearing loose items from top to bottom is a way of hiding parts of your body that you don’t like. However, doing this can be very unflattering and may make you look older.

Avoid this mistake by going for balance and mixing loose clothing with tight pieces as well as choosing clothes that flatter that one part of your body that you like. For example, wear a loose top with fitted pants or tight top with loose pants.

Monochrome outfits

Monochrome fashion is a huge trend but there is the right and wrong way to wear it.

To avoid monochrome outfits making you appear older, try not to wear all-black or all-beige outfits. The aim here is to have some contrast in your look by adding colour using accessories.

Too many accessories

Accessories are made to be added to a look to make it pop and looking more amazing. Overdoing the accessories of course can do the opposite and make you look older.

The saying ‘Less is more’ has never been more true when it comes to accessories. Wearing as few accessories as possible not only makes you look younger, it also makes you look more elegant.
