One of the major problems of newly married women or women in their late 20s is that they look older than their age. It's all fun and games until a random kid calls them an aunty… in public… out loud! It is one of the worst nightmares that every woman dreads more than the ghost creeping out from under the bed.
So here we are! The Brunette Diaries will help you to avoid looking older than your age and end up looking like an aunty.
One of the major reasons why all kids have suddenly started calling you an aunty is because you've gained excess weight. You may not have become too fat per se, but it is important that you maintain your ideal figure even after marriage. Eat healthy, exercise whenever you get the time to.
Groom Your Face
No, I am not asking you to load your face with makeup. Look presentable when you go out. At least put some basic BB/CC cream to even out your complexion. You can complete the look with some minimal accessories or a nice winged eyeliner. Do not overdo your look. Keep it simple yet stylish.
Let Your Outfits Complement Your Personality
What you wear is how people see you. Wear clothes that are of your size – neither smaller, nor bigger. In fact, you should always wear clothes that complement your figure. Clothes are no different than shoes. Keep yourself updated with the latest trends that suit your age.
Dress Your Age
Do not dress like a teenager if you're a 25-year-old working woman. Dress according to your age. Dressing younger than your age doesn't actually make you look younger. You only look like Cruella DeVil dressed like Dora The Explorer. If you're not dressing younger than your age, there is absolutely no reason for you to dress older than your age. You don't need to wear a Banarasi saree just to pair them up with your choora and mangalsutra. Basically, just dress according to your age. Don't over-do it. Not everyone can pull off a Carrie Bradshaw or a Samantha.
Work The Shringaar In Your Favor
Even when you're wearing mangalsutra and choora, you gotta dress in a stylish way where it doesn't look like you're going to a wedding! When you're wearing western, make sure you wear little studs in your ears and avoid hoops or any huge earrings. Accessorize in a way that complements your indo-western look. If you're wearing Indians, keep it as simple as possible. Pair your outfit with small jhumkas or a small bindi, occasionally.
Avoid The Wannabe Look
Avoid wearing all the clothes and putting on all the jewelry in your wardrobe at once. Since it won't be running away, you can take your time to try them one at a time.
