'Black clothes give you an aged look'

'Black clothes give you an aged look'


While black does give the appearance of a slimmer figure by making the shadows from less visible, wearing it next to the face brings out the worst, claimed colourist Jules Standish.
“Black clothing highlights dark lines under the chin, shadows around the eyes and wrinkles on the face. It can even make those who wear it appear to have dark ‘spokes’ or fissures in the iris,” Standish explained.

In older women, wrinkles and sunken areas appear deeper and more pronounced, meaning the effect is more prominent. It can even make a woman “feel drained, self-conscious and introverted”.

Dark scarves, hats, polo neck jumpers and high-collared coats are apparently likely to emphasise ageing features of the face, The Daily Mail reported.
The effect, however, can be moderated by wearing a colourful scarf or a low neckline or some chunky piece of jewellery, she advised.
