Here at TBF, we have a hunch that mature women don’t actually want to walk around in “mom jeans.” There just appear to be no other options for the fashionista who’s outgrown cutting of her circulation in super-tight skinnies and revealing her butt crack in super low-rise jeans.
But seasoned fashionistas need not fret. You can look amazing in a pair of jeans without looking like a celebutante wannabe or your grandma. Here are our jean picks for women over 50.
Best Jeans for Women Over 50
Perfect Boot Jeans from The Gap, $70
Boot cut jeans flatter your figure without clinging to it, and these have a chic tailored look that’s easy to dress up or down.
This is about as dressed up as denim can get. Another bonus? The dark wash is super slimming.
For your weekend errands or just for moseying around the house, nothing is more perfect for a laid-back summer than these cropped jeans Vera Wang has created. They look fantastic with heels or flip flop and are a perfect alternative to shorts.
We’re sort of obsessed with white jeans right now, so we had to show you this pair from WHBM. This is their universal fit (it looks great on anybody), and we can vouch that they are super comfy. Plus, we love the not-too-high, not-too-low waistline.
Slim Boy Jean from J. Crew, $98
Boyfriend jeans on a woman over 40 scream “cool mom.” And this beach comb wash is so effortlessly chic. There’s just a subtle slouch to these that makes them laid-back, but still oh-so grown-up.
