YOU never have to feel like you need to follow current fashion trends if you want to look younger than your age.
One style expert explained that all you need to do to look younger is make these three simple adjustments.
Chi Li is the owner of the YouTube channel Petite Dressing.
Petite Dressing is also the name of the clothing brand she started, dedicated to making options for women 5’4″ and under.
Her mission reads: “Smart style for every body type and height.”
In her recent video, Chi goes in a new direction when sharing her expertise.
She explains three style mistakes older women make and how to fix them to look younger.
The first mistake is wearing long tops.
Now, Chi isn’t suggesting older women start wearing tops that don’t go past the belly button.
“Longer tops are harder to style. They can look shapeless and also make your legs look shorter,” she says.
Instead of wearing your longer tops regularly, Chi says to tuck in your top to give your outfit a more youthful feel.
“Or you can switch to a cropped top to give you that modern and chic look,” she suggests.
Second, Chi believes older women often choose unflattering shoes because they’re comfortable.
“Sure, slides are comfortable, but they can also make your outfit look sloppy,” she says.
If you want to wear flats, you should choose a metallic pair.
“These are comfortable, easy to style, and add a modern touch to your footwear,” Chi explains.
The last mistake Chi sees often is older women wearing a loose top with loose bottoms.
Not only does she believe this style makes you look older, but Chi says this style can also make you look heavier.
“If your bottoms fit loose, such as wide leg pants or wide leg jeans, you want to make sure your top fits closer to the body. This will control the overall volume of your outfit,” Chi proclaims.
According to Chi, controlling the volume of your outfit this way will make you look skinnier and younger.
One viewer made added another suggestion: “Wear shoes that fit you. Anything that looks too big makes you look like you grabbed somebody else’ shoes!!!”
Other viewers thanked Chi for her advice, except one person gave their critique.
“I’m no fashion major, but those metallic flats are definitely not it,” they wrote.
