Jackets are meant to be worn on your body, not tied around your waist, so while it might be a trend nowadays, it’s really difficult to pull off. The only exceptions are plaid button-down shirts tied around your jeans and we aren’t even sure those shirts are considered jackets anyway.
Even though most of us still feel like children at heart, doing this will only make you appear out of touch. If you’re trying to look younger, it’s best to take care and avoid this casual trend that will not only make your hips look wider, but will also make your outfit look messier.
Wearing Flats All the Time
We'd never thought we'd recommend heels, but in this case, we might make a little exception. While we would never advocate for ankle-crushing stilettos, a little wedge can go a long way when it comes to looking a little younger. So why not choose kitten heels that will give you a little lift while still being comfortable?
Once you're used to wearing small heels, it's easier to go higher. Again, we aren't saying stilettos are the way to go but, chunky heels or rubber heels can definitely create a similar look without compromising your comfort. Before you know it, your legs will be lengthened, and you’ll look years younger.
Not Being Mindful of Your Colors
Not every color under the sun is going to look good on you, and that's fine. The natural colors of your skin, hair, and eyes will determine what colors make you shine the brightest. A good investment anyone can make for themselves is to find out what colors suit their skin tone.
If you have warm undertones, you should wear warmer colors; if you have cool undertones, cool colors work better for you. Once you find your colors, all you have to do is purchase a few staple pieces in those colors that suit you and mix them in with your current wardrobe.
Too Much Mini
An issue many women run into as they get older is deciding how short is too short. Now, we wouldn't be caught dead telling a woman not to wear something that makes her happy no matter how old she is. So, if wearing mini skirts and mini dresses makes you happy, then, by all means, keep wearing them.
Maybe you want to show off your legs or wear a top that reveals more around your neckline, but a good rule is to steer far away from any item that's too short for comfort. Not only is this style of skirts and dresses way shorter than they need to be, but they're also not as cute.
Not Using Collagen
There's a good reason they call collagen creams the “fountain of youth.” As we age, our collagen stores deplete. Since collagen is what gives our skin elasticity, losing it means that our skin can get wrinklier. So to make the most of it and maintain your skin's elasticity, we'd recommend collagen products, whether they come in powder form for your drinks or in creams for your skin.
Research-based collagen benefits are said to include skin, hair, and nail health, joint health, and gut health. All these are functions that start deteriorating when we grow older so it's good to keep your collagen levels up however you can!
