New Year, Young You: The New Year is a good time to take stock and look closely at how you dress. Because you could be aging yourself without knowing it and that will in turn affect your self image. And the simplest of changes can make a huge difference. Style guru and fashion consultant Tim Gunn offers helpful tips for staying wardrobe fresh and youthful in the More Magazine feature: ‘How Not to Dress Old.’ Here are a few of my favorite pointers from Tim:

– “With slacks, find the right cut for your shape, then make it just right with a little tailoring.”

– “Classics are classic – but that doesn’t mean they’re impervious to the wear and tear of time. Make sure your basics look fresh and modern, replacing when necessary.”

– “If you’ve had the same sweater hanging on the back of your desk chair for years, replace it! There’s a variety of cardigan options …”

– “The quickest way to age yourself? Slipping on out-of-fashion denim.”

– “Casual weekends need not be schlumpy. Incorporate cashmere for seriously luxurious time off.”

– “Break out of a purse-coma with a fresh shape (clutch) and shade that’ll shock you back to the style present.”

I’m at an age when the things I used to wear may no longer work for me but that doesn’t mean that I’ve lost all sense of style or the need to look relevant and fun. And what about others – all age groups – teens, 20s, 30s, and beyond? It would be great if there were a guide book to help us. As it is, we have our inner guide and our friends to help us navigate. And there is More … Continue reading
