It is usually the desire and wish of all women (yes, even our grannies) to look much younger. However, the problem often lies in how to go about this. Sometimes, in trying to look younger, we make mistakes that certainly make us look much older. Our lifestyle magazine shows these ten fashion mistakes that will stop you from getting those granny looks.
1 Excessively covering of your neck
When we cover up our necks unnecessarily, it makes us look years older than you are. We often instantly feel the urge to hide our imperfections, and the neck is one of them. Sometimes, this could mean excessive use of makeup to cover up specific blemishes or using long hemlines. If you are fighting off aging around the neck, it is not usually the best thing to cover up your neck. It is a fashion blooper that makes you look years older.
2 Having one same hairstyle for years
This mistake is certainly a crime in the female urban fashion circuit, and do not let the fashion police get a hold of you with this. Why play with perfection? No single hairstyle is perfect. We think we mostly desire the one hairstyle that makes us don’t want to switch up to a new style once we get it. As most style icons will point out, all hairstyles fade out with time. Therefore, if you keep having one style on your hair for many years without switching things up, you end up looking like a granny.
3 Floral prints
We know that you are madly in love with flowers. It is all good and nice when you walk out of the home to admire the flowers and their various shades. However, when it comes to your dressing, this is a big crime, and the fashion police won’t have any of it. It is not recommended that when you step into your boutique to update your wardrobe, this is a good time to ditch all your admiration for the floral prints. These styles went out of style years ago and will certainly age anybody that wears them.
4 The dark and heavy eyeliner
Truth hurts, and we will never be economical with it. We care for our readers; this is why we will go the extra mile to let them know the truth even if it hurts. When trying to apply makeup to your eyeliner, you must avoid applying thick layers of any product. When you have thick layers of eyeliner, you look older than your real age, which does not look appealing. This technique tends to weigh your face down.
5 Wearing lots of jewelry
We love putting on pieces of jewelry because they make us appear pretty fabulous. Everyone loves to put on pieces of jewelry. Who wouldn’t? After all, does it not bring the chick out of all women? But the crime is in overdoing it. You get older when you have on jewelry that jangle and rattle with every move that you make. You look something like a caricature or a clown at best. Wearing lots of jewelry is a big mistake if you intend to be addressed as a young and fashionably current woman.
6 Not trying on new trends
Most women often think that they might appear older if they dress rather young. This fear stops them from trying on new fashion styles. Admittedly, many younger urban styles will certainly bring out the “granny” in most women; this does not mean that you avoid trying new trends altogether. The lack of trying makes you look older than if you had tried in the first instant. To prevent yourself from looking old by not trying on anything new, you should get a good style and wear them in such a way that they suit your style.
7 Avoiding sexy fashion styles altogether
Just because they are old up to an extent, they think that they are past looking sexy. After all, no one is checking for them, they would say. Looking sexy never goes out of style, and the fashion police will certainly approve of your effort to look younger and more sexually appealing. While not trying to look younger and sexy makes you look older, the fashion police also frowns on this lack of boosting your sex appeal.
8 Wearing long dresses/ skirts that flow aimlessly
This one should be at the top of our list, but we have managed to hold it off until now. The aimlessly long flowing skirt/dress has got to have an honorable mention among the fashion bloopers that add years to your life. The flowing dress is a good opposite of the jeans’ denim that makes you appear a lot younger. If you want to look old and unattractive, we recommend the long and aimlessly flowing dress. It certainly helps you get your granny vibes on even without having grandkids. You can never beat that!
9 Putting super-stretchy jeans
Try this out and have your kids take you as their grandma. While we certainly recommend the denim jeans as one good way to look years younger, opting for super stretchy ones is never the way to go. Super stretchy jeans are generally a no-go area because they tend to discriminate based on the woman’s body. You might not have any problem with this style if your body looks like Naomi Campbell or Adrianna Lima. However, this is a no-go area for lumpy women as they tend to appear much older with style.
10 Wearing big and poofy hair
Wearing big and poofy hair is a classic all-time fashion blooper. In the days of Dolly Parton and Tina Turner, this would have been the way to go. This was the style back then. However, with time, we noticed that the big and poofy hairstyle damages the hair in all sorts of ways. One of these damages ends up leaving you with a much older look. Therefore, if you do not want to look much older than your age, you should minimize the outdated and poofy hairstyles. They never bring out the youth in you; they rather make you age much faster.
