7 Clothing Items Making You Look Older

Each age is special for a woman. And you need to pick up the clothes in accordance with your age. However, to find our personal style, we often choose something that adds a couple or even several years to our actual age. Read on Geniusbeauty.com about what should be excluded from your wardrobe not to look older than you really are!


Pastel colors

Yes, do not be surprised: gentle pastel colors (faded colors as well) can add a couple of years to your age. But not to all ladies: young girls may feel fresher due to pale mint, pale beige, off-white colors, but women older than 26-30 years will not feel adorned by these colors. The point is in the skin: young fresh skin will look good with any color; after 25-26 years, the skin gradually starts to age. This is not the reason for frustration – now you need to choose warm or bright colors depending on the type and color of your skin.

Business suit

More than one reader has widened her eyes in surprise now: “What if I work in an office?!” Yes, business costumes can make you older – but not all of them. To avoid this, resort to some tricks: give up the trousers and jacket of the same color and fabric texture; never fasten its upper part tightly; pick up a bright textured blouse; use accessories – a scarf, a brooch, or earrings to refresh your look.

Excessive luxury

What is traditionally associated with luxury? Luxury fabrics, gems, sequins. Thus, if you want to look your age, and not older – achieve the opposite effect: give up buying dresses and skirts made of velvet or shiny and shimmering fabrics; do not wear massive jewelry made of artificial gems. And if you cannot live without a set of large earrings, a necklace and a bracelet, balances your image – let the clothing cut be simple and preferably monochromatic.

Dark color near the face

Unfortunately, this is really so – black and dark shades can hide a few extra pounds around the waist, but they serve a different kind of service for the face – they make your face pale, emphasize wrinkles and under-eye circles, make your face look tired. So it makes sense to abandon black hats, caps, bandages, turtle neck sweaters, and scarves of similar shades. In case you cannot follow this advice, add a bright spot to the dark color of your clothes – a brooch, a scarf, a flower on the hat etc.

Dimensionless things

Putting on a dimensionless thing you are getting in two traps simultaneously – you look older and overweight. “Baggy” clothes look perfect only on young skinny girls. For other women it is a taboo! Look for the things to fit your figure (but not cutting into the body, otherwise you may look older or at least not too stylish), emphasize the waist with a belt or a special cut, choose the clothes of modern styles.

Massive clumsy shoes

Low thick heels, a square clumsy toe box, a senile sole, a boring and too convenient model “for a grandmother” immediately turn a young beautiful girl into a world-weary woman. Nobody suggests wearing studs or high heels every day, but let your comfortable flats be stylish: a neat toe box, interesting shoelaces, decorative details, and color inserts will make you feel beautiful and confident, and will tell others about your good taste.


Only if the frame is selected awkwardly. A thick lens, an old-fashioned frame, and the presence of the chain or a rope on the neck just make you older. Keep in mind that thick plastic frames that are fashionable look stylish only with very young girls. However, a thin metal frame and even an unframed lens will emphasize your femininity and elegance!
