3 Tips For Dressing Your Age

In our younger years it’s easy to get ourselves dressed. All we have to do is go to a clothing store and take whatever we find off of the rack and put it on. However, as we get older, it can be more challenging to find something appropriate for our age. After all, after a certain age wearing a crop top and flip flops can come across as downright awkward.

Dressing your age doesn’t mean you have to start wearing square shoes and argyle sweaters. It simply means that you should wear the most flattering clothing for your body type and maturity level. Whether  you’re just turning 40, or moving into a retirement home, here are some of the best tips for looking your best at your age. 

Buy Key Pieces

The first step is remembering that quality is more important than quantity. Rather than going to the store and  filling your shopping bag up just for the sake of having a bunch of new clothing, invest in higher priced more key pieces that can be used in a variety of different ways. Versatile clothing is the best way to invest in your closet.

Buy something that would look great at a formal dinner, but can also be dressed down if you want to wear it to a barbecue. Think classic and versatile when it comes to dressing yourself, and you can’t go wrong when it’s time to get dressed for the day.

Choose The Right Colors

Just because you looked great in neon green when you were 17, doesn’t necessarily mean it will look great on you at 50. It’s important that you know which colors go well with your skin tone, and overall look and feel.

Sometimes, going with too bright of colors can end up washing our skin out and making us look pale and ill. Yet, if we can manage to find the right tones, it won’t just make us look healthier and younger, it will make us stand out in a crowd and leave us feeling as confident as ever.

Choose What Makes You Feel Good

At the end of the day, you should choose something that makes you feel genuinely good. Put something on, and notice how it makes you feel. Does it make you feel different than your other clothing? Does it make you feel confident, or does it make you feel uncomfortable and restricted? Ultimately, you’ll look your best if you feel your best. So, don’t be afraid to break the rules of dressing for your age once in a while if you feel good in what you’re wearing. The most important thing is how you feel in your skin!
