We don’t know who needs to hear this, but please do not wear pigtails if you are over the age of, let’s say… nine. Maybe if you want to dress up as a cheerleader or as a child for Halloween, then we can let this one slide, but that’s pretty much it.
The reason this hairstyle ages you is because it is literally a child’s hairstyle, so any adult wearing them looks like they are trying to look like a child. This only emphasizes how much you are, in fact, not a child, but a fully grown adult who hasn’t received the memo on being all grown up.
Animal print is a controversial look for many reasons, but one of the chiefest among them is that there is something about it that has people over 60 years old in a chokehold. The print itself isn't all that aging; it's just that it's so prevalent among older people that a young person immediately looks older when they wear it.
Not to mention, it's a bold look no matter how you wear it, so it's likely that any added accessories will only add to the cacophony. So, unless you're Carole Baskin or looking to look like Carole Baskin (which we assume would be a hard no), opt out of these prints whenever you can.
This one won't age you just because people only typically get gray hair in their later years — it will age you because the ashy color will make you look ashen and pale as well. Obviously, lots of people wear gray and look good — the trick is to wear a darker shade of gray.
The lighter the hue, the ashier it will look, and it can end up making you look pale and sickly. As you grow older, the only light gray you want to have on you is your fabulous hair. In fact, dyeing one's hair gray is a fad many youngsters are toying with today!
Animal Hats With Paws
They may keep you warm. They may feel nice. They may remind you of that trip to the zoo when you were a kid and didn't have any rent to pay. However, those animal hats that had the long paws drooping down the sides are one of the many early 2010 trends that need to remain dead and buried.
They might have looked cute when you were 14 (they didn't), but anyone who wears them today looks like they are trying too hard to be quirky. It's a throwback to over a decade ago, and it just shows your inability to let go of your 14 years old-self concept of cool.
The etiquette for wearing alligator or crocodile belts is as follows: They must be huge; they must simply droop along the waist — don't even worry about them cinching anything in — and they must not, under any circumstances, match the rest of your outfit.
Given that they are generally unflattering, these belts aren't going to make you look any younger. Hey, it's not like this belt really added anything to Kim Kardashian's look in this picture, so we doubt it will do us any favors. If you're really set on wearing them, give some thought to balancing the outfit with more muted pieces.
