The clothes we wear – and how we choose to style ourselves – can often take years off us, but they can age us, too. This week in our style advice column there just so happens to be a loose theme from our correspondents. One gentleman wants to know how to dress appropriately for university and doesn’t think suits are quite right (he is correct). Another is still wearing the same old stuff from when he was at university several years ago and needs an age-appropriate update. Finally, we have a reader who seems alarmed by the sudden emergence of grey in his beard and wants to know what to do about it. Read our advice below.
