Many of us would never turn down the chance to look a little younger — maybe by around five years. Well, we at Bright Side are here to prove to you that this isn’t just fantasy. Here are six practical ways you can adjust your appearance to look like you’ve lost a few years.
It seems that our obsession with looking ’presentable’ sometimes leads us to be a little boring and old-fashioned with our style. Whatever your age, you can always be a little bold in the accessories you wear. All you have to do is add one exciting and unexpected element to your outfit. This might be a bright scarf, skirt, or blouse with an unusual print.
A simple striped top can make you look more cheerful and vigorous. In this case, your preference should be for one with narrow horizontal stripes, as wider stripes will make you look larger. Clothes with spotted patterns will also have the same positive effect on your appearance.
Add accessories to let the real you shine through. One large necklace, a large pair of earrings, or a bracelet will stand out especially well. In this case, it’s best to forgo wearing any more, or otherwise wear only very small ones that are almost unnoticeable.
The lighter your face looks, the younger and more positive you appear. An effective way to brighten your face is to wear something with a white collar. A polo shirt works better than a blouse here.
Clothing in colors such as lemon yellow, mint green, and coral red can work wonders for making you look younger. This might be a dress, skirt, or blouse. In this case, it’s better to go for simple and unelaborate designs.
Jeans are the perfect choice for emphasizing your figure and hiding your imperfections, and they should be an essential element of everyone’s wardrobe. They emphasize youth and can thus do a great deal to knock a couple of years off your appearance.
