How to Take a Decade Off Your Looks

11/03/2011

Want to take years off your looks? Most of us do! Skip the salon and save your money. There are quick, easy and budget friendly ways to "dump the frump" and take years off your look. Style expert Amy Tara Koch shows us how.

    Amy's "Quick Fix" Fashion Tips
  • Have a "uniform" that accentuates your assets and camouflages your least favorite body parts.
  • It's all about proportion! Baggy clothes = old looking and dumpy. A tailored, balanced outfit will showcase your figure and make you look taller.
  • Use accessories as lengthening tools. Longer earrings will elongate your neck and a scarf creates verticality and elongates your silhouette.
  • Asymmetrical knit creates verticality and will make you look younger and sportier
  • Keep Clothes minimal. Trends are expressed through accessories
  • Get rid of flats and add a heel!
  • Black is the most slimming color. Use it as a base and then accessorize
  • Invest in garments with "compression technology"
  • A graphic, flowy knit will inject a sporty, on-trend layer to the look
  • Add polish to your look with a sculptured, high gloss cuff
  • A simple gold statement earring brings light to the face and adds zip to the look
