Unfortunately for women over 40 we’re not always comfortable showing off our legs and we definitely don’t want to be caught wearing a miniskirt even if we have great legs. So today I’ll share 10 ways to have younger looking legs.
On Day 13 I posted about 25 clothes that just gotta go. One of the items mentioned was flesh colored hose. Many of you didn’t agree or didn’t know what to wear if you couldn’t wear nude pantyhose.
Kate Middleton seems to have caused nude hose to be popular again and many women are happy about it. But let me remind you that Kate Middleton is young and so wearing nude hose doesn’t make her look old.
We, on the other hand are older (nothing wrong with that) but we want to look good for our age and pantyhose can age us.
So after much reading and researching (I’m acting as if this is highly important, we’re just talking about our legs) I’m going to give you my opinions on how to have younger looking legs.
Here are 10 ways to have younger looking legs:
1. If you have nice legs go with a natural look especially in the summer and spring. Don’t wear pantyhose.
2. Opaque tights are perfect for fall and winter. I wear them all winter long. Stock up on brown, black and gray. (Colored tights are very popular right now but I’m not sure I can pull those off.)
3. I haven’t worn nude or flesh colored hose in years! I asked my sister, who’s almost 42 and she said the same thing, she hasn’t worn them in years. If you have to wear them make sure they match your skin tone. No shiny sheen and they need to be very sheer! Think natural look.
4. Don’t wear reinforced toes. (I know some of you might like them but they do age you.)
5. Stay away from flashy prints, thick opaque tights, and seams. These may call more attention to your legs than you want.
6. Lotion your legs everyday and shave for nice looking legs.
7. Make sure whatever you put on your legs is subtle. Your legs should not scream for attention but blend into your outfit.
8. Use a tanning lotion to give your legs color in the winter. I use Jergens Natural Glow Express Moisturizer all year.
9. By all means buy control top tights and pantyhose.
10. If you don’t like the way your legs look wear panty hose, tights or even pants. No need to stress about it!
Okay, what do you think? Do you like to wear nude panty hose? Do you think they age you?
