Clothes are a tool to create your desired image
Our image as well as our state of mind and the way we perceive things are gradually changing, and each of us is unique and has our own personal rhythm. In addition, a completely sudden change in the way you dress might take you completely out of your comfort zone and make you feel and look disoriented.
Moreover, not always our age on identity cards corresponds to our real age. Many times we may look younger, but there are more unpleasant times when we look older, so fashion should be a tool to help us achieve the image we want.
Secret tip: the key is to find your evergreen image and keep it. This applies to your personal style of dress, but also to the way you behave and the way you wear make-up and style your hair. Take some time for yourself and figure out what you like, what suits you, what appeals to you (colors, clothing styles, accessories, etc), and what you want to express.
