Denim looks fabulous on older women and yes, older women can wear jeans.
I’m not taking about low rise, hootchie mama denim jeans, but a nice pair of trouser cut, boot cut or wide leg jeans look fabulous on older women. The flare will help draw attention away from your mid section and give you a slightly taller look, which is important as you get older. Also look for jeans with at least 2% spandex/lycra content- this will allow the jean to stretch to fit you and help to control any problem areas. Some brands to try- Gap, Banana Republic, Levi, Seven (at Lane Bryant), UNIQLO, Mossimo at Target and even Wal-Mart’s Faded Glory jeans. Also, if you have gray hair, the dark navy color of the jeans really set off the gray in your hair. Pair the jeans with a bright colored tee from a store like Old Navy or a fitted sweater. Updated jean jackets from designers like DKNY or Banana Republic But please, for all that is fashionable and good in this world, avoid wearing denim from head to toe.
