A pair of perfect black boots are basically quintessential to each winter.  Gucci has made an extremely enviable pair this season, complete with their signature navy and red canvas panel and gold pearl embellishments.  Wear them with cropped & flared culottes and a tied neck scarf for a perfectly polished, french-inspired look.

5 Style Mistakes That Are Making You Look Way Older

Age is the one inevitable thing that we can’t seem to avoid.  Fortunately, we are able to express ourselves through our sense of style.  However, the last thing we want to do is make style choices that add years to our age.  Luckily, once we discover what clothing styles flatter us and which don’t, we can avoid those unflattering styles that are making you look much older.  Take these tips to keep your style vibrant and full of life.

The Color Black

While black clothing has always been hailed as the figure-flattering color, and works for almost every occasion, it unfortunately can make you look older.  While it does give the appearance of slimming your figure, it can also emphasize dark lines under the chin, shadows around the eyes and wrinkles on the face, according to The Daily Mail.  The solution?  Avoid wearing black in areas that frame the face, such as in scarves, hats, turtlenecks, and high-collared shirts and coats, and instead, opt for black in bottoms and in low-cut dresses and tops.  Adding a colorful necklace or scarf will help to brighten up your complexion,

Shapeless Clothing

Belt it, cinch it, do whatever it is you have to do to give your clothing a bit of shape to accentuate your figure.  No matter what size you are, whether you are a 00 or overweight, shapeless, oversized clothing is not doing you any favors, and is making you look much larger than you are.

Marco De Vincenzo, ex-Fendi fashion designer, first caught the attention of Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani at a show for his namesake label in 2009.  His collections have been delightfully unpredictable from the usual Italian designers, instead opting for classic silhouettes with unexpected materials and construction (W Magazine says it best: think Judy Jetson goes to finishing school).  

Check out these truly eye-catching heels below that combine futuristic and ladylike elements in a beautiful way.  Complete the look with cropped, flared culottes and a structured, high-neck blouse.
