The name of the piece is Five Fashion Mistakes That Age You...all of them good advice for us stuck in another era or in no era at all, just boring. I found this article this morning and was struck by how all the looks looked so much better with just a small change. I was excited and wanted to share! Sarah always has some good advice!

A loose-fitting pencil skirt:The whole point of a pencil skirt is to look polished and slyly sexy. We count it as a wardrobe staple, but not if yours doesn't fit properly and looks more like a frumpy, boxy table skirt. A quick trip to the tailor can take care of this problem. Make sure the hem sits at (not below) the knee and the skirt fits snugly at the hips. Wear it with a tucked-in shirt to show off your waist.


Matching shoes and handbag:
Your grandma probably told you about this "rule" because when she was in her stylistic prime that's how ladies turned it out. Today, we'd put it in the same category as matching your lipstick to your manicure or wearing coffee-colored pantyhose. DON'T DO IT! The modern view is to create fresh pairings that make people think, "Wow, I never thought that would go together, but it looks fantastic!"

Twinsets:
You should be suspicious of anything that's a set. Twinsets lack imagination and personality and can be put in the same category as "mom jeans" -- which means, "I've given up on style." Instead, go with a printed shirt under a cardigan or a striped sweater over a simple, solid tank.

Chunky heels:
Especially low ones. If you're wearing these for comfort, that's no excuse because there are many different types of heels in fashion right now, such as kitten heels, wedges, and platforms. You're sure to find something that provides stability and style. 

Oversized, tailored men's shirt:
Can we get you some Reebok high tops with that? Maybe some leg warmers? Baggy button-downs give the impression that you're trying to hide your body. Go for a menswear-inspired fabric, if that's the look you love, but choose a shirt that's tailored with seams and darts to accentuate the positive.

I'm buying a new pencil skirt!
