Dress 10 Years Younger
Banana Republic Gemma Wrap Dress, $98 Banana Republic
Maggy London Printed Faux Wrap Dress, $118 Macy’s
Creating the illusion of a waist is key to looking younger. Your secret weapon? A wrap dress. It cinches at, for most women, the thinnest part to make it the focal point of your look.
Rag & Bone Lorimer Blazer, $470 Shopbop
D & G Black Blazer, $372 Yoox
The best way to battle gravity? With structured pieces like a blazer that nips in the waist — they’ll pull trouble spots back into place. Shapeless silhouettes just look dowdy.
Dark Boot-Cut or Straight Cut Jeans
The quickest way to age yourself is in roomy, light-wash jeans. Opt for slimming dark hues and a wider hem, which balances widen-ing hips. Fabric with 2 percent spandex has enough stretch to give you a perky posterior.
Protect and cover up fine line with a pair of big shades like Julia Roberts’.
Elizabeth and James “Essex” Sunglasses, $165 Zappos Couture
Sunglasses do more than just protect your peepers from the sun. Oversize shades hide pesky crow’s-feet. Plus, they make the face look slimmer by comparison! Choose angular frames that enhance bone structure.
A Bright Shirt
No sallow skin here! Jane Fonda’s shimmery aqua top gives her a radiant, youthful glow.
Banana Republic Silk Utility Blouse in Cancun Turquoise, $80 Banana Republic
Dark colors worn close to your face can make fine lines stand out. But a bright hue, like apple-green or turquoise, gives skin a warm, youthful glow. Just be sure to wear neutrals everywhere else.
A Bra That Fits
Boosting your bust can take years off of your look. A right-fitting bra will restore your hourglass by lifting the bust up and away from your middle. Perks of a perky chest? Your torso looks longer and leaner. Get properly fitted for free at any bra store.
Short Statement Necklace
J. Crew Stacked Stones Necklace, $160 J. Crew
A chunky necklace is totally on-trend, but it can also camouflage skin problems (like sun damage or a crepey neck). Pieces should sit on your collarbone — anything longer draws eyes down. Stones that catch light warm a complexion.
Aching feet beg for sensible shoes, but there’s no frumpy footwear here! This season’s crop of chic flats — in laser-cut fabrics or exotic skins — means you can be comfy and stylish. Look for a sturdy rubber sole.
