At 34, I’d be lying if I said that dress to look a little more youthful wasn’t something I thought about often… especially in the winter. The voluminous layers and dark colors that are so prevalent this time of year tend to be quite aging. When I lived in Los Angeles (from 2009 to 2015) I didn’t have to think too much about this topic, but now that I’m a little older and I live in North Carolina, where it’s surprisingly freezing, I’ve had to develop a kit skills to prevent my winter wardrobe from inadvertently aging me. The good news is that these “tricks” are subtle. Some are as simple as avoiding certain colors near my face, and others are as easy as changing my shoe selection. Keep scrolling to see my tricks and to shop pieces that I trust in winter for their ageless powers.
