OVER 45? DITCH THESE 5 FASHION TRENDSSUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL
Ever wonder what fashion trends you’re too old to wear? I always say that age is just a number and trust me when I say I’m all about looking sexy and amazing no matter what your age BUT there are several new fashion trends in 2023 that I’ll be skipping and I suggest you do the same if you want to look classy. However, these are just my suggestions so please take what you like and leave the rest.
And remember the NUMBER ONE STYLE RULE that TRUMPS ALL THE REST: If it makes you FEEL good on the inside when you wear it then by all means wear it no matter what your age!! Keep scrolling for the 5 fashion trends I suggest skipping this season along with 5 more wearable trends including 5 chic outfits to go with each.
SHOP LOOK 1:
SKIP CROP TOPS PAIRED WITH LOW RISE DENIM AND SWAP FOR CROPPED JACKETS:
The first of 5 trends to ditch in 2023 is crop tops paired with low-rise denim! Now, don’t get me wrong, I think a cropped design can be super flattering, but I find wearing a cropped jacket is way more age-appropriate than a full-on crop top. This way you get that flattering silhouette without exposing too much skin. This one from Alice & Olivia is one of my favorite cropped blazers and the satin material is beyond luxurious!
If the Alice & Olivia cropped blazer is a bit out of budget, I would say this one by Karen Millen is a close second choice. I actually own both and I love them equally! This one is a bit more affordable at regular price and is currently $70 off, so now is the perfect time to pick one up if you’ve been on the fence. I wear a size 0 in this gorgeous spring blazer.
SHOP THE LOOK (JEANS, CARDIGAN, AND TANK ARE ALL UNDER $100):
SKIP BODY CHAINS AND SWAP FOR LAYERED NECKLACES:
Next on my list of trends to ditch in 2023 is wearing body chains. I personally just think this trend isn’t something that looks classy or upscale and is a trend I personally won’t be doing in 2023. I would opt for layered necklaces that are delicate & feminine by design instead to give your look that decorated yet classic vibe. This coin necklace is one I literally wear on repeat with a host of different types of chains so belive me when I say this is a great place to start!
GOLD CHAIN NECKLACE:
This chain necklace also from Revolve is a fantastic example of a chain that would look perfect layered with the one above. One aspect that makes this a great pairing is that the chain necklace is choker length while the coin necklace hangs much lower, which creates interest and variety in your look. Both recommended necklaces are around $100 which just goes to show you CAN look fabulous for less!
SHOP LOOK 3:
DITCH LOW-RISE SKINNY JEANS SWAP FOR HIGH-WAISTED JEANS WITH FLOOR SKIMMING HEM LINES:
Next on my list of trends to ditch in 2023 is low-rise skinny jeans! I don’t know about you but when I put on a pair of low-rise jeans I feel like my legs look about 2 inches long, which is just not flattering in my opinion! A better option is a high-rise denim that is more on the baggy side so they sort of puddle at the bottom. This creates a gorgeous slimming effect with floor-skimming hemlines that make will your legs look a mile long. I love these ones from Express because they are actually quite affordable, they have that silhouette I’m looking for and the light wash looks great with all the bright colors of spring. I’m wearing a size 0 reg and find they fit true to size.
SHOP LOOK 4:
SKIP CARGO EVERYTHING AND SWAP FOR ONLY ONE CARGO PIECE IN YOUR OUTFIT:
The next trend to ditch in 2023 is wearing cargo EVERYTHING. That’s right, there IS such a thing as too much of a good thing and this is a classic example. When you are pairing so many oversized cargo items you end up swimming in fabric which can actually make you look bigger than you really are. I personally would stick with one cargo item either on top or on the bottom and then wear a fitted item on the opposing side. I am actually SO excited I found these cargo jeans by Grlfrnd because I have been hunting for a flattering pair of cargo jeans for months! I’m wearing a size 24 in these super-flattering jeans.
SHOP LOOK 5:
SKIP THE "NO PANTS TREND" AND SWAP FOR TROUSER PANTS:
Last on my list of trends to ditch in 2023 is the “no pants trend” and I think this one speaks for itself. It’s just a little bit too out there and I don’t know very many women, of any age, that would be 100% comfortable wearing this trend. I personally am going to opt to wear a pair of fabulous trousers instead, just like these ones from Express. These trousers are incredibly slimming and they just happen to be the hottest color of 2023 as well! I’m wearing a size 0 regular and find they fit true to size.
LOVE THE MATCHING BLAZER:
I can’t go without mentioning how much I adore the matching blazer! I personally think it looks gorgeous with the matching pants, but I also love to wear it with a good pair of jeans. I’m wearing an XS in this beautiful jacket perfect for Valentine’s Day.
