THERE are some things you just shouldn't wear if you want to look younger.

So if you have any of these things in your wardrobe it's bad news, you've probably been making yourself looks older than you are.

According to fashion expert Shea Whitney there are nine things that are massive no-no's if you don't want to dress like your nan.

She explained: "These are specific things that I see everywhere and I swear it makes you look way older in a bad way."

Capri trousers

Capri trousers might seem great in theory, especially for those days when the weather is unpredictable, but the truth is they almost never look flattering.

Shea said: "They cut your leg off at the worst spot, right at the centre of your calf and it makes your legs look way chunkier and stumpier than they really are."

Not only that but the awkward length also means your proportions appear off making your torso look the same size as your legs.

Bermuda shorts

Despite Bermuda shorts being a favourite for those of us that don't want to show off all of our legs, they're actually adding years onto your look.

"I'm not saying you need to wear Jessica Simpson cut off shorts and show half your butt," Shea joked.

"All I'm saying is the Bermuda shorts are out of style, aging, they're not flattering and they'll get your legs off."

Bulky shoes

We get it, sometimes comfort does have to come before style.

But when there are so many comfortable shoes out there that are also stylish there's not much of an excuse to wear bulky shoes.

She explained: "Clark's have so many shoes right now that are stylish and comfortable.

"Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of ugly shoes on their website too, but there are stylish ones."

Childish trends

Anything too juvenile that you might dress your young daughter in is a massive no-no.

That could be anything from Mary-Jane shoes or childish hair clips, "they're meant for five-year-olds," Shea said.

There's a different between dressing younger and dressing too young, and childish trends are pretty telling of your age, unless you are actually a child.


Shea shared: "So many women of all ages wear little cardigans over dresses and that seems very juvenile to me."

There are so many better options that wont make you look so old according to the pro.

Opt for a blazer or stylish jacket, or if you really can't part ways with your cardigan go for a modern over-sized look instead.

Large floral prints

Although floral prints are always trendy there are some specific types you should avoid.

"The big, bulky, bold floral prints make you look so much older," the fashionista explained.

Go for a more dainty and feminine floral print for a fresher and younger take on the style.

Handbags with too many sections

If your handbag has a million different compartments and sections on the outside, it might be time update your look.

"It's so aging, it looks so not good and there are so many better things," according to the pro.

"I understand the appeal but it's going to age you by two decades," she added.

If it's the organisation that you love Shea recommended buying a handbag organiser that you can insert inside your bag so you don't need so many sections.


If you're a glasses wearer that can wear contacts you should consider ditching your glasses for good.

According to the fashion whizz wearing glasses can age you "by at least five years."

If contacts aren't for you, update your glasses to something that is a little less grandma, and no matter what don't wear glasses with rhinestones or embellishments.

Matching jewellery

If you're a fan of wearing matching jewellery it's bad news, "it's definitely aging you," the pro said.

Luckily, it's an easy fix.
