None of us can avoid aging. But when it comes to looking old, we have a multitude of ways to cheat this. And mind you, we're not just talking about eating heathily and applying numerous skin care products to prevent wrinkling and sagging. What we wear every day brings a more immediate and visible result! So here, we round up six items you may be wearing that add years to your age! Read on and see what you can replace them with.


1. Pearl earrings

Pearl earrings may be precious, but you must admit, it's often associated with our lolas and titas. Try wearing funky earrings instead to complement your attire.

Replace with: Statement earrings


TRY: Es Secar Palma Handcrafted earrings, P2250, Seek the Uniq

2. Nude tights

Nude hosiery isn't ideally worn with short skirts. If you're worried about coverage, replace it with fishnet stockings or textured tights for an edgy twist!


Replace with: Fishnet stockings or textured tights


TRY: Topshop Medium fishnet tights, P363,

3. Pussy bow top

Unless styled à la Gucci, pussy bows add unwanted volume on the chest area. They look feminine, but it also puts you at risk of looking like a school principal on the job. Instead, you can opt for tops with statement sleeves to update your basics.


Replace with: Statement tops


TRY: Zara Blouse with bow and ruffled sleeves, P1995, Glorietta 3

4. Overdone makeup

We all know that makeup is a crucial part of our daily outfits. That said, you should remember that its sole purpose should be to enhance your features, not to cover them up! From time to time, you may want to update your no-makeup look. There's nothing wrong with playing with makeup, but just like what Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach always says, "You have to know when to put your brush down."


Replace with: The "no-makeup" look

5. Reading glasses

Don't settle for prescribed glasses that do nothing to your face shape. Opt for frames that complement your face. Consider pairs that have nude or ultra thin framing so your glasses won't overwhelm your features.

Replace with: Updated specs

TRY: The Ivy in Pale nude, P1999, Sunnies Specs

6. Old lady handbags

Unless you're going for a lola chic vibe, we recommend to put down the leather handbags made in old silhouettes. Explore quirky bags that put a fun twist to your outfits.  

Replace with: A fun, quirky bag

TRY: Aranaz Black pineapple suede, price available upon request, SM Megamall
