Jeans have come a long way baby! Jeans worn by women in their 40s, 50s and 60s can make us look young and hip. It’s all about finding the right jeans.
Of course, there’s do’s and don’ts that go along with wearing jeans and because I know you ladies love these lists, let’s get started!
The Don’ts of wearing jeans: (nothing ages you like these!)
- Don’t wear jeans with an elastic waistband.
- Don’t wear high-rise jeans(these come up all the way up to your waist) or the opposite, super low rise jeans. Low rise jeans expose love handles!
- Don’t wear faded or washed out jeans.
- No ripped jeans!
- Don’t wear jeans that cut into your stomach area. Muffin tops are not flattering.
- Don’t overdo the embellishments on jeans. (It’s best to avoid embellishments all together.)
- I don’t think I have to say this but women over 40 should never show their stomach, even if it looks good.
The Do’s of wearing jeans:
- Do wear darker styles. They’re slimming and look dressier.
- Do have several styles. Boot cut are the most flattering.
- The straight leg style is more flattering than skinny jeans on women over 40 unless your body is equally straight and skinny. Either way, both can look good with a tunic or longer top.
- Wide leg jeans can look good if worn with a heel. Make sure they’re long enough, usually one-eighth to one-quarter inch from the floor.
- Choose the smaller size if you’re unsure. Jeans usually stretch out a bit.
- Do check the rear area. Some jeans can make your rear area look too big! (Or in my case just bigger!)
I usually buy my jeans at TJMaxx but the more expensive the jeans the better they are supposed to fit. I’m thinking I might invest in a more expensive pair at some point.
Do you wear jeans? What’s your favorite brand? I’d love to know!
