Fashion knowledge is not only useful for fashionistas! Some information about color theory, tailoring that suits you and nuances that highlight your skin, eyes and hair will always be useful, regardless if you decide to embrace the latest trends or not.

Inadvertently or unwittingly, discover below five fashion mistakes that add a few years to your actual age!

Clothes that don't fit You

You choose your clothes without trying them on, and you're guided by a rather vague size that you wore in high-school? If the mere idea of trying on clothes in stores repulses you, and you blindly buy everything that spades into your hands, you may have fallen into the trap of a big fashion mistake.

You've passed the age when you partied in clubs till dawn wearing tight dresses and micro skirts. This sin is not that great if you match them properly with a masculine blazer and decent heels, for example.

Neither side of this coin is promising. Loose clothes don't work for you if you have beautiful, harmonious forms, you'll only hide them. On the other hand, if you're dealing with a few extra kilos, it will look unappealing. In both cases you'll look older than you actually are!

Your Wardrobe is composed predominantly of Dark Colors

Dark shades highlight fair skin, while light colors have an enlightening effect. Even women with a bright and fresh complexion can experience problems with all-black outfits. If your skin looks dull and tired, dark clothes will only make you look older.

You love Loose Pants and you never get out of Sporty Shoes

Perhaps Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner afford to spend their life in tights and sneakers, but if you don't have their age or physique you'll get a very bad result. I'm not saying that you can't look great in your gym equipment but you will notice in time that your wardrobe doesn't do you any good if you always wear a pair of sweatpants and an oversized T-shirt.

Change your approach and invest in flattering pieces that highlight your forms.


Your Style is Retro Vintage

The retro style highlights delicacy and femininity, but it must be combined with modern elements. A midi skirt specific of the 50's will look perfect with a cropped top and a pair of glam sandals, but will age you if you combine it with a mallet and flat-soled shoes.


Inappropriate Accessories

Glasses are among the most important accessories, especially as we age. The grandma style is not flattering even on very young faces. If you associate it, for utility's sake, with a support necklace, you will only compromise your entire look. Choose colorful designs with trendy prints, and you'll see yourself "flourish".

Also, ultra-colorful beads or pearls, which you inherited from your grandma, are "guilty" of an "out of fashion" look.
