No one wants to look older, especially those of us that are mature but NOT matronly!
These tips featured on this video from #OWNshow Daily taken from Oprah.com give some easy to follow ideas:
#8 on the list is the image they featured with the video, of a woman wearing a turtleneck. Chances are you will look better in a flattering V-neck or scoop neck, which draws the eye to your décolletage. No matter the sleeve add classic V-neck camisole tops to your wardrobe. Whether you wear them alone in the warmer months or layer them under under a sweater or blazer in the winter they will flatter your figure. Consider (see #1 on the list) a pretty navy rather than black for less contrast (and sharp, unflattering lines) with your skin.
When pairing with a skirt be careful (#3) not to wear your skirt too long. Gone are the days of hems moving down as we age. Use the length of your skirt to bring attention to the slimmest part of the area around your knee—right above, right below or in the middle—and that’s where your hemline should hit. Use their great hemline guide to decide which length is best for you. While you’re at it use the print on your skirt to help slim when necessary. The placement of the stripes in this midi-skirt visually slenderize the wearer.
Don’t stop there! Check out all 12 tips on Oprah’s site to stay looking youthful while maturing gracefully. Correcting those you feel comfortable with will help you look better and feel more confident. Because they really do go hand in hand!
