avoiding the mid-life crisis look when updating style

I'm 44, balding with a goatee and a tash-style beard, and a little on the heavy side. What can I wear to look trendy for my age, rather than like someone having a mid-life crisis?

Andrew via TwitterThe good news is you've already taken the most difficult step of realising something needs to change. The addition of colour and some well-considered pieces will have a big impact on your appearance.

For instance, break away from your denims with a pair of H&M's rust-coloured jeans (1 €29.95). With a straight-leg cut, they'll create a contemporary silhouette to instantly update your look. Style with Selected Homme's navy printed shirt, worn with the top two buttons undone (2 €39.95, Arnotts).

Tie the look together with a grey bomber jacket by Collezione at M&S (3 €88) and finish off with a high-shine brogue boot (4 €95, Office). All of these pieces will work independently and be interchangeable with your wardrobe.
