You’d be surprised at how these 7 fashion errors are making you look older


Reading glasses

You definitely need them for reading but no woman ever looked younger with little reading glasses hanging on the end of her nose. Reading glasses will always make you look older than your age and if you must wear one, ensure they are cute

You’re hiding out

If you are trying to cover your hips, arms or stomach underneath a shapeless blazer you’re actually making yourself look heavier and also older. According to Anita Kealey, a Custom Tailor and Designers Association master. Instead a wearing a shapeless jacket, get a well cut-jacket that nips in at the waist and that is shorter in length. Should possess flattering parts of your figure and creates a smooth line down your torso.

Your skirt length is moving down, down, down

Its fine if you’re getting older but you dressing in such a way that makes you look older than your age, it makes it more difficult. A shirt that’s grazes close to your ankles doesn’t just hide slightly saggy knees but also tends to make women look wider and frumpier. Try a form-fitting miniskirt, which comes to the middle half of your calf instead.

You’ve got your bra on the wrong hook

First thing first, the clasp should on the loosest hook as the wrong size bra makes you look shorter, older and heavier says Linda “the Bra lazy” and owner of Linda’s Bra Salons. When its on the tightest hook-that’s when you need to know you need a new bra says Becker.

Any colour that washes you out

If anything will make you look older instantly, it will be to wear a color that drains you of color. The right colors (almost everyone look good in shade of red or blue) can brighten your skin and also make you look younger.

Old lady handbag

Are you still carrying that old bag? Handbags have been a driving force of fashion ever since its inception and it’s still playing a leading role. Go for bags that suit your outfit and leave that ideology of “oh its classic and it belongs to my grandma”. Preferable options would be a cute cross body bag or a fun leather bag.
