Regardless of how old you are, everyone wants to look good. But for many people who might feel out of touch with current trends, it can often feel like you’re stuck in the style of your younger years. Luckily, there are a few easy things you can do to keep yourself looking and feeling good, whether you’re in the boardroom or in your assisted living facility.
To help you see how this can be done, here are three tips for creating a classic look regardless of your age.
Wear Clothes That Fit Your Body
One of the best things that you can do to help you look and feel good in the clothes you’re wearing is to wear clothes that actually fit your body.
So many people are too concerned with the actual size of the clothes they’re wearing as opposed to just wanting to wear clothes that are comfortable to them and make them look their best. This goes for clothes being either too big or too small. So if you have clothes in your closet that don’t fit you anymore at your current body size, either put them out of your rotation or get them tailored so that they will fit you now. Once you do this, you’ll look objectively better and more classically beautiful.
Skip The Sets
Something that many older women tend to gravitate toward are sets. And while these can be cute and stylish in some cases, many times, wearing a set just makes your style look old and out-of-date.
Rather than buying a set that is matchy-matchy, try to trust your own style and judgment by creating your own sets that will go well together but aren’t the exact same pattern or material. You could also try just taking part of your older sweater sets and pairing them with something different to help them look a little more classic and stylish.
Choose The Right Accessories
The accessories you wear can also have a big impact on your style and help everything you’re wearing look a lot more classic and lovely.
Ideally, you should try to only use one power accessory with each outfit that you’re wearing. If you throw on too many vibrant or statement accessories with the same look, it can overpower everything and have you looking more tacky than classy. So if you’re wanting to have a classic look at any age, try to edit down some of your older looks so that there’s just one point of focus rather than a number of them.
If you want people to notice you for your classic style and beauty regardless of how old you may be, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you achieve this type of look.
