We don’t know who needs to hear this, but please do not wear pigtails if you are over the age of, say, nine. Maybe if you want to dress up as a cheerleader for Halloween, then this can slide, but that’s about it.
The reason this one ages you is because it’s 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.
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.
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.
Animal Hats With Paws
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. If you're really set on wearing them, give some thought to balancing the outfit with more muted pieces.
