hello hello and welcome to this week's

video I am super excited to do this one

for you because I am truly of the belief

that this will be a game-changer in

terms of how you look and it is simple

wardrobe tricks to look 10 years younger

the steps are easy and they're basic but

once you get it down I promise you it'll

be a system and people will be looking

at you scratching their heads wondering

what on earth have you done and yes

there is one little hack that you can do

right now that will automatically make

you look ten years younger whether you

change out your wardrobe or not and I'm

gonna save that little trick for you at

the end of this video but let's talk

about some of the basics and I think

that a lot of us tend to get very simple

as we mature and we seem to limit

ourselves in terms of what we think is

appropriate what we think is flattering

and will suit us and I'm here to say

that some of the things that you think

may be working for you could in fact be

aging so I'm gonna launch right into it

and we're going to start with something

that I think everybody universally feels

comfortable in and that is all black now

black is tricky

yeah it's slenderizing it's easy you

don't have to figure a lot out but

here's the problem it can be really

harsh against skin tone that gets

lighter and more ashy as we age and it

can accentuate the hollows under the

neck and the eyes so ditch the all-black

from head to toe and break it up a

little bit in some skin softening

neutrals like beiges tans or grays so

here I take the all-black look and I'm

replacing the jacket with a tan

double-breasted houndstooth blazer and

I'm matching it with something a little

softer and flirty it's still black but

it's not up against my face it's a black

skirt that's got some youthful detail to

it and by the way skirt lengths vary

just like jeans do these days so find

skirts that suit you but make sure it

has a youthful flair to it now I'm

putting a little white tank top

underneath the jacket to kind of

brighten up the neck in the face area

and then strappy kage sandals in neutral

that elongates the leg and it will

balance out the color tone from the top

there's nothing wrong with a black

pantsuit that you're seeing here but

it's something that I personally would

save for important interviews where I

want to convey a sense of severity and

professionalism this look also would be

great for a job interview and you could

even break it up with a jewel tone

colored shirt just to add a little bit

of color around your face while still

maintaining that take me seriously err

about you but I want to get you away

from doing all black from head to toe

and I think popping in a little bit of a

neutral especially around the face will

make all the difference in terms of how

your skin tone reads it and as you saw

in that jacket it had black in it but

there's also enough tan in it to balance

it out and soften it against my face so

hopefully that gives you some options in

terms of how you look at all black

especially against your skin tone the

next area where I think a lot of people

are uncertain and tend to make more

mistakes and that is patterns

I'm not saying shy away from patterns

and that you have to be in solids for

the rest of your life it's not true but

choose your patterns wisely and this

right here shows a great example of why

you need to be careful hard geometric

lines can look really strict and aging

as well as the darker colors so in this

case you might want to opt for lighter

brighter shades with softer and more

curved patterns also note the difference

in the structure of these two dresses

the longer one hides more pleats can add

weight right around the midsection and

the shorter arm mid sleeve can add some

weight especially with elbows exposed if

you don't feel your arms are very tone

the blousey chest area with the necktie

yes it's soft and feminine but if it's

too blousy it can make the bust area

look very large with too much fabric the

other dress in comparison has a nice

v-neck a long gating look with long

sleeves that are flowy and have a little

bit of flair to them that lengthen the

arm creates length in the body the wrap

style I believe is universally

flattering especially cinched in at the

waist and then this dress has a flare

that goes out over the hip and through

the leg creates nice movement and flow

which is very youthful the

to me are divine they brighten up the

skin and the color scheme offers that

our makeup colors as well and that can

take age off and by the way I will link

my simple makeup tips to look 10 years

younger as well so you can complete the

whole look here but don't forget about

shoe choices as well

flattering shoes need to be a little bit

softer and strappy err as you can see

the ones that I'm wearing with a heavier

patterned dress are too chunky and too

thick they're not very feminine they

bring a lot of focus down to the ankle

but you pop in a real pretty peach heel

with a strappy ankle it elongates the

leg it's another beautiful detail for

the eye to go to it complements the

colors in the dress and it it continues

that sort of feminine Flair that you're

seeing with a little pop of color

jewelry in this case very simple you

don't want to compete with your pattern

so again a light gold necklace might be

all that you need and that's it but the

difference between these two patterns I

think are striking and really drive home

the point that you've got to be careful

with your pattern choices I've heard

people say that you shouldn't opt for

large pattern sizes but that's not

really true it's the right pattern size

if you go big make sure again like

they're soft and round and the color

choices are more youthful and flattering

the next thing is update your denim game

alright the skinny jeans look with that

thick wedge is so yesterday and it's

gonna have your screamin I'm ready for

carpool in a glass of Rose a a thick

shoe draws attention to the calf and it

makes your bottom half look heavier so

let's update this denim look with a more

modern and universally flattering look

and you've got so many options here

that's the beauty of jeans this season

right now the ankle crop is all in and I

love the fact that you can go either

fitted or loose mid rise or high rise in

the waist so pick what suits your body

style best I personally love high-rise

jeans because they really elongate the

leg and they prevent muffin top now your

jeans can be frayed on the bottom or

they can be cuffed

just please not too many rips or tears

you look like you're competing with your

20 year old daughter just keep it modern

and classy you can wear it with a light

and flowy top that doesn't hide the

waist area

it'll give you a really nice youthful

edge to it so we'll a little moto jacket

on top if it gets cool at night the

ankle crop also gives you killer

Footwear options here shoe choices are

really endless this style in my opinion

looks great with a bootie especially one

that has a pattern or some neat detail

with it also mules are really popular

this season and they are a modern

looking flat that will give you some

comfort but as some style points too and

then of course you can always kick on a

nice strappy heel and that updates this

look for nighttime dinner date out time

with friends whatever but that's what's

so neat about the ankle crop jeans is

that the eye immediately goes to the

shoe so you've got a lot of options here

in fact my last video that I did talked

about accessories that are trending and

the square-toed shoes really and that's

another one that I would pair with the

ankle cropped jeans but I love the fact

that if you search gene Trends there's

so much available to you there's no one

look it was only the skinny jean and now

that is not the case mom jeans

looser-fitting jeans high-waisted jeans

but give it some ankle exposure and you

are totally in next up is avoid high and

rounded necklines as well as Jersey


I know Jersey material everybody loves

it because it's comfortable but here's

the issue with Jersey it tends to stick

to any bulges that are popping out only

accentuating areas that you're probably

trying to hide high round necklines also

cut you off they tend to make you look

heavier in the chest area and they don't

elongate and then adding to the trouble

is a short and rounded necklace so the

way to avoid this look which makes you

look wider and dated is to pop in a nice

v-neck top that elongates you and it

allows for more jewelry options collared

shirts can accentuate the jawline they

add even more of a modern edge so here

you can layer some nice simple gold

jewelry to add a little pop to it you

could even do a simple small patterning

if you didn't want to work with a solid

but my opinion

every woman needs a nice solid crisp

white blouse or a silk white blouse to

me the white shirt is classic and you

can also invest in a couple of nice

colored button downs to brighten up your

face shirts can be structured fitted or

they can be loose and you can do just a

simple front tuck for a more casual feel

here but you take a nice crisp clean

shirt you pair it with a modern Jean

simple jewelry little strappy sandal and

you have completely modernized and

updated your look you want to get away

from thick you want to get away from too

chunky because those things will only

make you seem bigger and more dated so

now that we've tackled the blouse and

we've tackled dresses and the all-black

I'm going to move on to something that

you probably didn't give too much

consideration and that is pay attention

to your eyewear I'm going to give you

two examples and push in so that you can

see the difference

eyewear that you want to avoid again and

it plays into that thick heaviness you

don't want to get I glasses that are too

thick and sit too low and are

rectangular especially they only draw

attention to the hollows under your eyes

horn-rimmed tortoiseshell especially I'd

be wary of black glasses are best suited

in blondes because you have nice

contrast so really pay attention to size

and shape I would opt for lighter and

more jewel tone colors that reflect

light in my case the ones that I'm

wearing here are sort of a khaki green

and they really play up with my eye

color and they have a nice gold frame on

the side and that plays into the

highlights in my hair so again you can

go with jewel tones Reds even clearer

look at the shape certain shapes like a

cat eye can lift up the face can

accentuate the cheekbones or a more

rounded frame can soften hard lines in

the face so play around what I would

encourage you to do is take pictures of

yourself in the glasses so that you can

actually see the image of you in them

you will definitely have a more

objective opinion that way but it's

really amazing how I wear can make all

the difference in terms of how you look

and making you look older so now you

know what to stay away from since

eyewear has also transitioned and really

bloomed and blossomed and there's so

much more available now have fun in your

eyes store play

those shapes and don't forget to take

your pictures okay so now the one thing

that I said that will instantly make you

look younger no matter what you're

wearing and it's so simple and it's

something I do all the time and that is

self-tanning I'm doing the airbrush son

by Sally Hansen in medium to tan I love

it and the colors that I featured since

we're going a little bit lighter and

brighter having some warmth and depth in

your skin give some beautiful contrast a

tan is youthful and as we all know this

is the safe way for us ladies in our

prime to achieve a golden glow and there

you have it my simple wardrobe tips to

instantly look 10 years younger and they

are simple you don't have to go out and

buy a thing most likely I bet you can

rummage through your wardrobe and pick

out and see all the things that fit what

we're talking about here and if you're
