13 Tricks That Will Help You Avoid Outdated Looks

Sometimes our looks speak for us even before we open our mouth. If we are dressed in an outdated style, we can look older, not trendy, and not stylish. And this can decrease our chances of getting a prestigious job, being promoted, or finding the man of our dreams.

Bright Side put together 13 tips on how to look stylish and trendy in our ever-changing world.

13. Overly accentuated sexuality

Outdated

Modern

Tight minidresses with a low neckline are out of fashion. If supported by high heels, this look is even more vulgar. The fashionable trends of today are moderation, loose shapes, and midi lengths.

12. High heels forever and ever

Outdated

Modern

Classic high heels should be chosen only for special occasions. As for platform heels, they outlived themselves in the 2000s, and their place is a trash bin. The stylish choice of current times is flat shoes or mid-low heels.

11. Caterpillar puffer jackets

Outdated

Modern

Tight puffer jackets that look like a caterpillar are out of fashion — they don’t look good, and they are not stylish. Though, a puffer jacket can be a very trendy item of outerwear. The main thing is the silhouette: it should be straight, cocoon, or oversized.

10. Glossy tights

Outdated

Modern

Here we talk about glossy tights in natural colors. They are the ultimate fashion taboo. If you want to look modern and stylish, you should choose only opaque tights matching the color of your skin, not more than 20 denier. And forget about bronze colors as they make your legs look darker than the rest of your body.

9. Matching colors in accessories

Outdated

Modern

Matching the colors of shoes and bags is not necessary anymore. The same applies to sets of hats, scarves, and gloves. On the other hand, unusual combinations of colors within one outfit are at the peak of trendiness now.

8. Gold jewelry

Outdated

Modern

The gold rings, pendants, or earrings that our mothers and grandmothers used to wear are a definite no-no, even if it’s diamond jewelry. The best choice is high-quality costume jewelry, which can add style and edge to your look.

7. Low-waist clothes

Outdated

Modern

Jeans and other outfits with a low waist are not fashionable now. The trendiest choice is a medium or high waist. They can make our legs look longer, which is nice, isn’t it?

6. Crystals

Outdated

Modern

Patterns or words laid with crystals are something from the glamorous 2000s. If you like shiny clothes, choose fabrics with a metallic effect or trendy spangles.

5. Hair clasps or ties

Outdated

Modern

Different hair clasps, ties, or clips are long outdated and can make your look cheaper. If you like to wear ponytails, use thin hair ties in the same color as your hair. Cover them with a tress of your hair.

4. Coordinating pieces

Outdated

Modern

Current fashion dictates the combination of styles and fashionable experiments. We should forget about stereotypes, such as a romantic dress demands delicate sandals; a business suit goes only with classic pumps; sneakers are good only for the gym; spangles are only for evening outfits.

3. Perfect hairdos

Outdated

Modern

Natural-looking hair, a slight untidiness, and soft waves are what is trendy nowadays. And perfectly neat hairdos with a lot of hair spray on them are not on trend anymore.

2. Long nails

Outdated

Modern

Long nails are a sign that their owner has no idea about modern fashion trends. It can be even worse if the nail design includes crystals, drawings, or accessories.

1. Addiction to "improvements"

Outdated

Modern

Big silicone breasts, "duck" lips, extended eyelashes, and excessive makeup are not fashionable any longer and were, perhaps, never in fashion. It is natural beauty or skillfully created illusions that are always trendy.
