Styling for Men - Are YOU in a time warp?

I was reading The Huffington Post the other day and came across this article I thought I would share. I'm often asked about styling tips for men. I also went to the source of the article, a site called Visual Therapy blog. They are the duo that were often seen on the Oprah show.  Check it out.

The old adage, "if it's not broken, don't fix it" doesn't always ring true, particularly when it comes to the way you dress. We are all creatures of habit and the more we mature, unfortunately, the more challenging it is to evolve beyond our creature comfort zones.

For nearly two decades now I've seen the patterns and learned to identify the glue that causes us to get stuck. Here are my red flags and tips for looking current and age-appropriate, learned through working with post50 men from all paths of life.

Red Flags

How do you know if you are stuck in a time warp? 
  1.  You are wearing the same jeans you wore ten years ago.It has been more than five years since you've modified your hairstyle or changed hair products.
  2.  You can't remember when you changed the silhouette of your jacket. For example, more current jackets for men are slightly shorter and have side vents. If you are wearing jackets with no vents you may be a decade behind.
  3. Your shoes have square toes
  4. The frames of your glasses (sun, readers or and prescription) haven't been updated in five years.
