3 Big Fashion Mistakes Women Over 40 Commit That Makes Them Look Old

Plus, the quick fixes that you may not have even heard of!

Are you aging yourself with fashion mistakes?

It’s evident by the booming anti-aging industry that women are not interested in looking old! Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on anti-wrinkle creams, make sure you are not doing yourself a disservice by committing these three fashion mistakes that will age you no matter how much skin cream you are using.

1. Falling Prey to Trends – An aging factor happens when we stick to a trend too long, or we think we need them to be fashionable.

The definition of “trend” includes words like, “changing” and “prevailing inclination.”

Now, there’s nothing wrong with change, but that’s where many women get stuck! They cling to a trend from their younger years, emphasizing their age instead of defying it.

“Prevailing inclination” is another issue. Your style choices shouldn’t have anything to do with groupthink or what’s popular or even the “Color of the Year.” Fashion magazines will always talk about the trends. They need to keep subscribers and advertisers. But, you can free yourself from the never-ending cycle of “what’s hot and what’s not!”

Define your own personal style! Let your inner light shine through, so your outward appearance matches who you are inside. No magazine can decide that for you. It comes from within.

2. Having No Real Style to Your Hair – Your overall look goes beyond fashion mistakes. You could be making a mistake with your hair, too.

After a certain age, women can find themselves in a hairstyle rut or even just giving up with the attitude of, “Well, it’s good enough for me. I’m not trying to impress anyone.”

Lady, you’re worth the investment of a little extra time and effort in the morning to help you feel confident all day long.

A trusted stylist can help you choose an anti-aging hairstyle that works for your life. They can even educate you on how to use the styling tool(s) and product to achieve what you created together in the salon.

Don’t just leave it at that. Re-evaluate your hairstyle every so often. What worked a couple of years ago might not be correct for you now.

3. Wearing a Lot of Black Clothes – Most women have too much black in their closet.

You’ve accepted some lies about black. For most women, black is not as flattering or sophisticated-looking as we’ve come to believe. Some women look phenomenal in black, but for most women, black’s stark quality enhances their wrinkles and facial lines, adding an instant ten years to their face.

Add some color back into your closet! The world is filled with beautiful colors, just waiting to be experienced by you. Once you bring color alive in your wardrobe, you’ll be saying, “I can’t believe I used to love the color black! I don’t miss it at all.”
