Look Ten Years Younger Instantly

Men, we have a serious problem on our hands, or should we say, in our closets. We’re wearing clothes that don’t fit. Maybe we’ve been watching too many Seinfeld reruns. Maybe we’ve been taking the wrong notes from our fathers. Either way, it’s aging us. And it stops here.

We see it all the time, even on the stylish streets of New York: men in oversized khakis, button ups, and even shoes (usually of the clunky square-toed variety). But even worse, these guys are fit, good looking, twenty to thirty-somethings not dressing to their full potential. (For style inspiration from guys who do it right, check out Street Scenes: New York Fashion Week.) See, dressing younger doesn’t mean digging up your old tees from college and wearing a backwards cap. Surprisingly enough, it just means not dressing older. Here are the top fashion fails that age you—and how to fix ‘em for your best look yet.

Bulky sports coats

A boxy, bulky jacket is about as flattering as a Snuggie. Even if you’d like to drop a few pounds, we promise that a fitted one will look better. The shoulders should rest firmly on the edge of your actual shoulders, the sleeves should fall around your wrists and let ¼ inch of shirt cuff show, and you shouldn’t be able to fit a six-pack of beer between your jacket and your torso. Unfortunately.

Look younger: Bookmark this article and walk into your closet right now. Find all of your blazers, put them in a bag, and see your tailor immediately. You may think they fit fine, but good tailoring is the difference between fine and damn fine.

Oversized dress shirts

You probably wear a button front to work, right? And you probably want to be seen as confident and powerful, right? That’s not going to happen in a shirt that says, “I’m hiding in a sea of fabric because I’m not secure enough to wear something slimmer.” It not only ages you, it makes you look unsure of yourself. And if there’s one thing CEOs have in common, it’s looking assured . . . even when they aren’t.

Look younger: Look for shirts labeled “slim fit,” like this one from Banana Republic. You’ll avoid a boxy silhouette, flatter your frame, and not make your 175-pound body look like Philip Seymour Hoffman’s.

Clunky shoes

They might look comfortable, but since your foot isn't square-shaped, they're no better than a classic, rounded toe. In fact, clunky, square-toed shoes are the easiest way to destroy a perfectly good look. Even the most tailored, high-end suit will look cheap if you finish it off with a pair of plodders.

Look younger: Upgrading your below-the-ankle style doesn’t mean dropping serious dollars and developing blisters. You can buy a versatile pair of oxfords for under $200, ones that you can wear anywhere and everywhere. Exhibit A: this pair from Kenneth Cole.

Dad jeans

Despite the name, Dad jeans are worn by well-meaning guys of all ages. How do you know if you’re guilty? Your jeans are high-waisted, baggy, and somewhat stiff. Oh, and a belt worn at your belly button takes it to the next level. (In case you can’t tell: This is not a level you want to be on.)

Look younger: The waist of your jeans should fall right around your hipbone. Any higher could make you look like Mitt Romney, any lower and you’ll be flashing strangers every time you bend to tie your shoe. You can’t go wrong with one of these New Jeans for Fall.

She then added sunglasses to the look, sitting them on top of her hair.

Melissa also accessorized the youthful outfit with a black Gucci bag which she wore across her body.

The 56-year-old knocked years off her age with these simple and fashionable adjustments.

Her followers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on dressing your age versus dressing to appear younger.

One user said: "Very nice outfit, sis. You look younger than your age, love it."

"Absolutely stunning and beautiful, you go girl," commented another viewer.

A third person wrote: "Yup, I agree it makes you look young."

However, other followers suggested Melissa embrace her age instead of working to look younger.

"No need to dress like that, ma'am. Dress your age. You are beautiful," they said.

Another person suggested Melissa "choose stylish clothing that makes you feel good without dressing up to be young."
