8 ways to look younger over 50

In a world where most men’s go to colour is navy, there are so many more exciting things you can add to the mix when it comes to looking a younger version of yourself... 

1- Colour is your friend. Where men can sometimes fear looking over the top, colour is actually the best thing you can do to lift an ageing skin tone. Avoid black at all costs and if in doubt, choose softer, warmer colours such as greens, burnt orange and fawns. Every skin tone and personality looks better in some colours over others but this is where experimentation helps.

2- Mix and match styles. Wearing stripes with a textured jacket adds depth and keeps things looking fresh and less one dimensional. Choose up to four textures and play about for a more fun look.

3- Great accessories. If you're not yet ready to go full pelt then start with accessories such as pocket squares and scarves. They're ideal for adding a splash of colour. The colour nearer your face is what counts. As a general rule start brighter at the top and get darker towards the bottom.

4- Look after your skin. Wear moisturiser with a factor 50 every day. This really does make the difference. Dry skin looks older.

5- Drink plenty of water. Our brains are like sponges and without water can dry up, this also applies to our skin. So this has multiple benefits.

6- Quality fabrics. When choosing clothes choose the best fabrics not cheaper ones which can cheapen your look. Look suave and sophisticated with beautiful fabrics and remember to mix textures for full affect.

7- Fit. Clothes that fit really well are so important. If your jacket sleeves are too long it can make you look like a child in his Dad’s suit. The fit of your clothes really can make or break your outfit.

8- Wear what makes you feel good. If you're walking around confident, this makes all the difference. Think posture; stand tall and feel proud. You'll look fresh as a daisy in an instant!
