Style tips from Ellen Alexander

Looking younger is nowadays a goal for all women who are done with puberty. It’s like we’re going straight from teenagers to looking for anti-aging treatments. Or maybe it just feels like this because the 20s have a way of just vanishing in like seconds and it’s “hello 30s” all of a sudden.
Sometimes looking younger is a matter of attitude; other times is just picking the right outfit. But one thing is true for sure – if we want to look younger, we must dress according to our body type. Emphasize the physical strengths and mask imperfections. Also, it’s important not to wear clothes that are too short, too tight, or too transparent. Sexy clothes are great, but they also must be elegant and classy.
Are you ready to dive right into tips and tricks that you could really use to choose clothes to look years younger?
Shapewear for women
If you had one or multiple pregnancies, the chances are you’re not ecstatic with how your body looks now. And the same is valid if you lost some weight recently or if you’re carrying a bit more weight than you’d like. In short, for all the bulges that make you uncomfortable, there is one solution, and it’s called shapewear. With the right size of shapewear, you can do things you never thought are possible such as wearing a bodycon dress. Your waist gets an amazing definition, there is no cellulite in sight, and the thighs look slimmer and hotter.
It’s all in the color
If your goal is to look younger, the color of the clothes is crucial. Clothes that are very dark (black, brown, grey, kaki) can make you look older. At the same time, colors that are excessive, harsh bright such as red, yellow, green, and others, might make you look a little bit ridiculous.
We tend to associate both browns and greys, as well as bright red and purple, with women past a certain age, so better avoid them. What you should do instead is look for clothes in lovely, warm colors, preferably pastels. Colors like baby blue or baby pink, mint, peach puff, light
yellow, and others just like these are great choices that will take years off your face.
Go nude (for the handbag!)
While it’s not clothing per se, bags are essential accessories that can make or break the whole outfit. The black bag doesn’t go well with everything (as we were taught in the past), not if you want to look younger. Also, you can forget about matching colors for the shoes and bag. For a classy, cool, younger appearance, choose a bag that goes well with the clothes you’re wearing. A neutral color such as nude is a fail-safe option, so make sure to invest in one or two bags in light, pastel colors.
