Mistake 1. Trying To Look Younger
Here’s a better idea: embrace your age. Doesn’t ‘I want to look young’ feel a little depressing – like you’re faking something?
Now how does it feel when you say, ‘I want to look strong… I want to look healthy… I want to look successful’?
Yep – those are all things you can truly be. Far more easily than many young guys who spend their nights drinking cheap beer and their days struggling to make rent.
Now here comes mistake #2 – hold on to your hats…
Mistake 2. Still Wearing That Baseball Cap
Yeah – it’s time to STOP holding on to THAT hat.
Unless you’re actually going to the game to support your team… it’s time to upgrade your headwear.
Hot weather? Sun in your eyes? Look for a classic wide-brimmed hat like a straw panama.
Cold weather? Try an insulated flat cap. You can even get one with flaps to cover your ears.
And if you’re wearing that baseball cap because you don’t want to deal with your hair… that takes us to the next point.
Mistake 3. Thinking That Haircut Still Makes You Look Young
Maybe you’ve been going to the same barber for years… maybe you haven’t been to a barber for years.
Level up your hair game by going to the best stylist in your area.
Take some pride in your hair and have fun with a new style. If you’ve got longer hair try a shorter hairstyle to make your hair look thicker.
If you’re losing hair consider shaving it off – studies show you’ll look more attractive and more dominant. Or use hair products specifically designed for men with thinning hair.
Don’t want to go with the bald look? Then look at your options for treatment or a hair transplant. Take control of your hair.
Mistake 4. Partying Like You’re 20
Next mistake older guys make trying to look young? They try to keep up with those 20-year-olds – drinking and partying all night.
Guys – time is going to catch up with you. Your body needs more rest.
If you want to look good, you’ve got to take care of yourself.
That means getting enough sleep and focusing on your diet, exercise, and skincare.
Mistake 5. Wearing Running Shoes To Look Young
The next mistake older guys make trying to look young? Wearing their running shoes everywhere.
That’s not working for you.
Invest in some good casual footwear – like a simple white sneaker. Or if you’re worried about dirt, go with a simple black.
For an extra touch of style look at different fabrics like suede or perforated leather.
There are tons of options out there for casual shoes. Save your running shoes for running.
Mistake 6. Wearing The Wrong Jeans
When you’re in your 20s you’re probably in great shape. You can get away with some weird-ass jean cuts without – well – making your ass look weird.
As you age your body naturally changes. You need to make sure that you’re wearing jeans that work for your body type NOW.
For most older guys this is going to mean no skinny jeans – and definitely no baggy jeans.
You should probably skip the rhinestones on your back pockets too.
When it comes to distressed jeans, some older guys can pull it off if they know what they’re doing – but that’s more for the fashion-forward.
Mistake 7. Wearing Graphic Tees To Look Young
If you’re an older guy trying to look young by wearing graphic tees with funny off-color sayings – ask yourself this.
What’s your real goal and message in life?
Are you trying to achieve greatness? Get that company off the ground? Become the best man you can be? Be a great father and set an example?
When you wear something like that – you are NOT sending the message you want to send.
Besides – graphic tees don’t look good on most body types. You’ll look so much better with a nice casual button-down.
Mistake 8. Wearing Your Shirt Untucked
Speaking of shirts – it’s time to stop letting it all hang out. When you’re young you might get away with it – but when you get older there are different expectations on you.
People expect you to understand when a shirt should be tucked in and when it should be worn untucked.
Dress shirts are designed to be tucked in. Casual button-downs CAN be worn untucked – but often look better tucked.
Shirts with a curved bottom hem are meant to be tucked in. Shirts with a straight bottom (like many polos) are meant to be untucked.
If you buy a shirt that’s made to be worn untucked – you need to know if it’s too long or too short.

Mistake 9. Being Obsessed With Getting A Younger Partner
Let’s get back to that 2018 study on online dating. It found that men focus on one thing – age. Women focus on multiple variables.
So just how obsessed are men with getting a younger partner?
In an online dating study, the most attractive age for men was 50 – the most attractive age for women was 18.
Brutal, right? But that’s what the research clearly showed.
Women are smarter. They realize: ‘If I want a mate who’s actually going to work for me and what I’m looking for – I need to look at the whole picture.’
Gentlemen – in this area you’d do well to think like a woman.
Mistake 10. Focusing Obsessively On ANY One Thing
Getting back to that first mistake – your goal isn’t to look young. Your goal is to look healthy and successful. But what does it mean to look successful?
Too many older guys are still thinking like they did in their youth – they’re focusing obsessively on one thing.
You won’t look successful if you obsess about your style and ignore the one thing you’re always wearing – your body. Or if you obsess about your health and ignore the way you present yourself.
Take a step back – it’s a bigger puzzle. It’s multiple things.
You need to focus on your health, your appearance, your style, and the full picture of how you present yourself.
