My goal for my channel is to help you save time, help you save money, and help you look like the very best version of yourself everyday even when you don’t feel like it, because when you look good, you feel good.
Today I wanna share 10 fashion tips to help you look younger. If you missed it, I already did two of these videos. I did 10 beauty tips and I did 10 lifestyle tips. So you can go back and watch those videos when you’re finished watching this one and I will put links to those videos in the description box below.
But today I wanna talk about fashion and how to dress yourself in a way that will help you look younger. There is a fine line, and I know we’ve talked about this before but I fine line between dressing younger but also dressing in a way that feels appropriate for your age.
And so I’ll talk a little bit about that too in some of the things that I think are helpful when you’re like ugh, I wanna try that but I’m not sure because it feels like I’m trying too hard and I did do a video actually about that as well, how to dress so you don’t look like you’re trying too hard.
But this one is focusing on how to dress yourself in a way that is more youthful and I’m gonna share 10 tips with you. (upbeat contemporary music) The first one is to wear jeans. At first I had wear fitted jeans, but I really think that the key is to wear modern jeans.
So if you haven’t updated your jeans in a while I think I would go out and that would be purchase number one because when you wear a modern pair of jeans it’s definitely going to make the overall look much more youthful, whether that’s a pair of distressed jeans or dark wash skinny jeans that are high rise or a pair of mom jeans that are cool and slim fit, a pair of Levis.
Ya know just picking a pair of modern jeans that are happening, that are now, that are current will definitely make your overall look much more youthful and this is the key, it will not look like you are trying too hard.
It will not look inappropriate for your age. If you’re worried about that then I would gravitate toward maybe the dark wash skinny jean that’s high rise. It’s more of a classic streamline, tailored look.
But if you don’t feel like you’re worried about that then go for it. Whatever pair of jeans speaks to you. Maybe it’s a pair that has a racing stripe down the side or it’s a pair that has a cool hemline at the bottom like a step hem or a fringe hem.
Finding the modern detail on the jeans to make the overall look much more youthful. (upbeat contemporary music) Tip number two is something I did highlight in the How to Dress Sexier video. If you guys missed that one you should definitely watch that one if you like this video topic.
I will put a link to that below in the description box. But essentially the tip is do wear leather or faux leather. That’s another one where we’re just a lot of times feeling like is that too much, am I trying to hard, does it look like too youthful for me? The reality is absolutely not and the other beautiful thing about it is you can wear like the leather pants, you can wear a leather skirt, you could do a leather blazer, a leather jacket, but I feel like leather and faux leather adds so much, not just like this kind of luxe quality to your look but then also that youthfulness and that just confidence in your look and your style.
Like if you’re willing to go out there and wear leather, like leather pants or a leather pencil skirt or a leather blazer, that says to the world like I am a very confident woman and I am not afraid to wear what I love and I’m very stylish and I like nice things and I’m modern and I’m hip and I’m youthful.
It says all of those things. So do invest, I think that’s one thing you can invest in, in a pair of leather pants or a leather pencil skirt. It doesn’t have to be real leather, it can be coated to look like leather, it can be faux leather, vegan but I think that’s one easy, very simple way that you can modernize and make your overall look and wardrobe more youthful.
(upbeat contemporary music) Tip number three is to show off your shoulders. This is one I’ve talked about at length. It is a wonderful trend for women regardless of your age. So doesn’t matter if you’re 40, if you’re 50, 60, 70, 80, this is such a gorgeous part of a woman’s body that you can show off, that you can feel good about, that you don’t have to feel like this is pushing it too much.
We’re not showing knees. It’s just this really lovely part, take advantage of that. Off shoulder, one shoulder, cut out shoulder, cold shoulder, just any of those. It’s modern, it’s youthful, it’s gorgeous, it’s sexy, all of that.
So definitely go for showing off your shoulders. (upbeat contemporary music) Tip number four is do wear trends and here’s where we run into that road block again of it just doesn’t feel quite right. It feels like I’m trying too hard here.
And I’m a 55-year-old woman, can I really wear over-the-knee boots? Yes, you can. The key is if you’re gonna try a trend just pick one piece, one trend, keep everything else neutral classic. So if you’re gonna do the over-the-knee boots, wear a very classic pair of dark wash jeans, wear a nice tailored black blazer or wear a beautiful turtleneck sweater.
Keep everything else classic, neutral, quiet. One piece, one trend. Point is, do try the trends, very youthful, very modern. (upbeat contemporary music) The next tip is to wear beautiful neutral colors.
I know for many of you wearing black doesn’t feel right. You feel like it’s aging you, and it can be, it can be aging. I happen to love black. I could never give up black. You may feel like it’s not doing you any favors.
If that’s the case, try neutral tones. They are so beautiful and they’re so youthful and they’re so lovely. So it’s like whites and ivories and beiges and camels and cognac browns and all of these beautiful, yummy, lovely, neutral tones.
They are very youthful, very modern, very fresh, very on-trend but they’re also just classic and beautiful. It’s kind a mix of both modern and classic. (upbeat contemporary music) The next tip is strategic pairings.
What do I mean by that? I mean, if you’re going to wear some traditional or classic pieces like let’s say you wanna wear a bow blouse and pearls or a bow blouse and a pleated skirt. Instead of going full on with the like classic, ladylike look and that’s beautiful for like church or whatever, but you wanna make it look more youthful, more modern, if that’s the objective.
If that’s not the objective that example is totally fine, so don’t write me and say what’s wrong with a pleated skirt and a bow blouse? Nothing, I’m just giving you an example. So if you want to make it look more youthful, what you would do is you would pair the bow blouse with cool jeans instead of the pleated skirt or maybe you do the pleated skirt with like a funnel neck sweatshirt or something very interesting and modern on the top.
Or maybe you do like the pleated skirt with a T shirt. That’s very unexpected and modern and youthful. Or maybe you do the bow blouse with some ripped up mom jeans or maybe you do the bow blouse with a really fun, trendy skirt.
Just thinking about the pairing and the outfit as a whole and how you can make something that feels like it could skew a little bit older, more youthful by pairing it with modern pieces. And again, modern pieces could be trendy pieces but it doesn’t have to be a trendy piece.
It can still be a modern classic piece. What do I mean by that? Like again, taking the example of the dark wash jean. Classic but modern. So find a modern pair of dark wash jeans. Thinking about what you’re pairing with what, how to make that overall look more youthful, if that’s the goal.
If it’s not the goal don’t worry about it. And don’t get mad at me for saying this but if it is the goal to look more youthful and modern then I would definitely just be strategic about those pairings.
Think about them in a different way. (upbeat contemporary music) The next tip is to wear supportive undergarments. You don’t want somethin’ hangin’ down to your bellybutton that should be way up here, okay? So just making sure you have on the right bra, you have on the right shapewear if that’s necessary, the right underwear.
You just don’t want thing sagging that will be aging. Not only be aging but it will also not look as nice in your clothes, just across the board. So to look more youthful you want to make sure that you got the girls (whistles) where they need to be.
I did just do a blog post on the coolest technology that will help you figure out what your size is. It’s by Soma it’s called Innofit. If you guys missed it I will put a link to that below to show you how it works, but I was blown away by it.
Basically I was wearing the wrong band size and cup size after all these years of telling you guys, go get your bra fitting, go get your bra fitting. Here I was walkin’ around wearing the wrong size. Even if you think you have the right size like let’s say you gained a little weight, ya lost a little weight, ya need to be measured again.
But this technology’s, you can basically get a very accurate size in a matter of minutes in the privacy of your own home. (upbeat contemporary music) The next fashion tip to help you look more youthful, to help you look younger, is sunglasses and I’ve talked at length about sunglasses, the power of the sunglasses.
There is no faster way to hide your age than wearing a pair of sunglasses. Throw on some cashmere gloves or some gloves and they’ll never know what your age is and maybe a turtleneck too, ’cause like the telltale signs of age are hands, neck, and eyes.
So wearing really modern, great sunglasses it’s not only protecting your eyes so it has a real functional purpose, it also is making you look more youthful and so it will elevate your overall look as well.
So if you’re wearing a really modern, really fun pair of sunglasses then that’s gonna bring your whole look up a notch. So definitely thinking about if you’re like, ah, I just need something to add a little excitement to the wardrobe and I want it to be modern and I want it to be youthful, sunglasses are a great way to go and you don’t have to buy super high-end sunglasses.
There are so many great sunglasses that look like the high-end designer pairs but are not carrying the same price tags. Plus, ya know these designer sunglasses, they’re all made in the same place. Like it’s not like the quality’s any better, you’re just literally paying for the brand name.
There’s no shame in going for the dupe or going for the one that’s a lot less that looks very similar to the higher end pair. But sunglasses are definitely a great investment and it’s an easy one. You don’t have to break the bank on those.
It’s very simple. You don’t have to worry about size. You just find a few pairs that you love and that definitely infuses some excitement into your wardrobe. (upbeat contemporary music) wearing color is another tip to help you look more youthful and I think you have to be strategic about color choices.
And I’ve talked a lot about this before. I did just do a video on five simple ways to wear color. So if you missed that, that might be a good one to watch if you’re struggling like how to wear color. But I did do a little research and came across Kate Smith who is a celebrity stylist and her take on what color’s the best in terms of making you look more youthful and that was interesting.
I’m not sure I agree 100% but it was an interesting read but she suggested blues and turquoises. I always have loved blues. I’m a huge fan of blues and I do think they’re such a beautiful color for most color tones, for most of our skin tones.
She mentioned also black alternatives, which I’ve talked about before, like the neutral colors, the grays, the beiges, the navys instead of wearing the harsh black. So I do think that’s important. And when you’re wearing color and you’re trying to think like what color brings out the best in me and really lights up my face? I would just think about the colors that you have already that you gravitate toward the most that you get the most compliments when you wear because those are your colors.
Those are the ones that really do light up your face that really do look the best on your skin tone and for your coloring, so gravitate toward those colors. For me that’s like emerald green and red and it’s really those primary colors, those jewel tone colors for me that I feel the most comfortable in.
Whatever those are for you, those are the colors you need to wear in order to look more youthful. So maybe avoiding the really harsh black and going for more neutral grays and navys and beiges. Also thinking about those colors that really do light up your face.
(upbeat contemporary music) And the last fashion tip to help you look more youthful is to wear statement shoes. Shoes are the best because, for the most part, your size doesn’t change. Like you could gain 10 pounds but your shoe size stays the same.
Now sometimes with pregnancy your shoe size could change but for the most part you could keep the same pair of shoes for years and years and years as long as you take good care of them. But shoes, when you add a cool pair of shoes or a sexy pair of shoes or a modern pair of shoes, you could have everything else very basic and plain but those shoes just take everything up a notch.
Same is true with handbags. You have a basic look, you’ve got dark wash jeans, black top, like I featured recently. I featured a Walmart look that’s very basic; dark wash jeans, black top; but I threw on a pair of Jimmy Choo pumps and all of a sudden that look is like wow.
It’s just got so much more pop. You’re not reinventing the wheel here. You don’t have to go crazy. You just take that basic look, you add some fantastic shoes, and you’re good, you’re done. Your whole look is elevated, turned up a notch, more youthful, more modern and sexier.
Those are the 10 fashion tips to help you look younger. Don’t forget that I did do two other videos in this series for looking younger. One was beauty, the other was lifestyle. I’ll put the links below.
