Stylist Yulia L. told okemen.xyz what hat to choose if you don’t want to look older than your age, what is wrong with astrakhan fur coats, why it’s better to forget fishnet sweaters forever, and what colors of clothes steal our youth.
Hats with decor
Knitted hats with huge bows, flowers, and other decorations will add you a maximum of 10 years. In general, this is a very dubious accessory. In my opinion, it is not suitable for either young or older ladies. If you want flowers (a current trend), let them be on a choker, belt, or bracelet, but not a headdress. A win-win option is a beanie hat made of any material (cashmere, mohair, etc.).
You can’t do without a scarf in the autumn-winter season, but again, you must choose it wisely. Give preference to plain models, and let flowers, leaves, and other “decorations” remain in the past. Tassels have the right to exist; the main thing is that they do not resemble elements of curtains.
Some time ago, the idea was popular that a scarf and a hat should not be a set but separate from each other. I wouldn’t follow this rule. Firstly, because the set is ideal in cases where time is running out, and secondly, such pairs look very organic. So why reinvent the wheel?
This accessory is very good if you know how to style it correctly. Feel the difference when you wear this scarf with a black men’s coat or pair it with a mink coat. The last option frankly gives mothballs. Do you want to wear a scarf in Russian style? Wear in good health, but think about serving.
Astrakhan fur coats rarely come in actual styles. Usually, when you look at them, you are immediately transported to the times of the Soviet Union. In general, natural fur has long been supplanted by eco-materials. Today, manufacturers have succeeded so much that artificial fur coats look like natural ones and are in no way inferior to them in terms of warmth.
Outerwear in burgundy, marsh, and purple
Winter paints few people; their skin becomes pale. If you choose outerwear in dark green, purple, or burgundy, there is a high risk of aggravating the situation. Of course, not only can they visually age you, so carefully study your wardrobe and figure out the “enemy”; perhaps it will be some favorite coat or fur coat.
Sheath dress with peplum
Whatever the color of such a model, it will make its mistress a real “old lady”; the check print is especially good at this task! Another dubious story is flounced on the hips or the hem.
It is better to choose clear lines and rich textures, but not decorative elements, leaving the latter for young ladies.
Oh, those fishnet sweaters, but on a naked body, when everyone sees your bra. There is nothing youthful and even more sexy in this.
Now there are so many sweaters of any texture; why voluntarily put on these “holes”? V-neck models are suitable for those who want to show off their figure or cleavage.
Skirts of the wrong length
A pencil skirt to the middle of the knee is another trap, especially if the legs are far from ideal. In this case, fashionable trousers or a skirt of an unusual cut, but midi lengths, pleated models, will also look much more organic (the folds should be of medium size). Do not show the flaws of your body.
Cropped jacket a la Chanel made of tweed, with interesting buttons and edging, is a good option for all times, which suits women of any age. But! There are also shortened models, I would even say short ones, not made of tweed, and they look very sad. There must be freedom of movement and air between the fabric and the body; rely on this rule when choosing a jacket.
