3 Suggestions on How to Adapt Your Style and Presentation as You Age

Everyone is entitled to dress how they like, but ask most people what they think of guys in their 40’s and 50’s who dress like teenagers, with backwards baseball caps and baggy trousers – or women of the same age who go everywhere in mini skirts and crop tops – and the feedback is likely to not be too flattering.

Like it or not, as we age, it’s natural for our style and presentation to change – and, all things considered, that’s probably for the best.

There are plenty of sometimes-inconvenient questions that we have to answer as we get older, such as why you get grey hair, and how best to deal with wrinkles.

When it comes to your style and presentation, however, there’s quite a lot of leeway, and plenty of reasons to be enthusiastic about the road ahead.

Here are some tips on how to adapt your style and presentation as you age.

Roll with the punches, and emphasize your strong points in the right context

The “strong points” that defined your looks or personal presentation at a young age, will not necessarily be the same throughout the entirety of your life.

Many men, for example, will emphasize the “clean cut heartthrob” look in their late teens and early 20’s, but trying to pass the same look off into middle age may not work so well.

Often, the best way to evolve your style and presentation as you age, is to roll with the punches, and work on emphasizing your strong points as they stand at any given time period.

So, for example, the guy who used to do the “clean cut heartthrob” look can grow out a bit of stubble and go for “sophisticated silver fox” instead.

Take it as an exciting opportunity to explore new dimensions of style

As you get older, it’s likely that there will come a point where wearing the same outfits you wore decades ago, will stop being a great proposition.

Instead of thinking about it in terms of no longer being able to “rock that cool outfit,” take it as an exciting opportunity to explore new dimensions of style that you might never have properly investigated before.

There’s a lot of fashion out there, and a lot of ways to dress to impress. Why not keep experimenting throughout your life?

Focus on what you can improve, rather than on what you might be “losing”

Too often, as people get older, they become insecure and fixated on what they might be “losing.”

Generally speaking, it’s far more productive to focus on what you can improve, and optimize, instead.

No one is exactly “on top of their game” in all dimensions of life in their early 20’s. So, as you get older, why not focus on becoming the fittest you’ve ever been, dressing in the slickest outfits you’ve ever worn,  and so on?

There’s always an area of your presentation where you can make things “better,” and there’s no reason to imagine that it’s all downhill after you hit 30.
