Denim in your 40s...

AGE: I just turned 50 years old (shhhh)! But we can say 40 😉 I feel great!! JOB: maurices Store Leader FROM: New Haven, IN What’s your favorite thing to pair with jeans? I like to always be put together, so the dark wash jegging are my-go to…paired back with a vest, dressy top, and wedges or booties. Of course, I also love a good pair of destructed boyfriend jeans paired with a casual top, plaid, and flats. Have you tried any of the new jean fits yet and what’s your favorite so far? I’m a huge fan of the pull-up jeggings. I like wearing them with longer tops, whether flowy or tight fitting, the look is clean and smooth around the middle and great for hiding those imperfections most women think they have. What’s the oldest pair of jeans you own and why can’t you give up on them? My medium wash, slim boot (Ellie) fit jeans are my oldest and most comfortable pair. They are long, lean and perfect for wearing over my boots, and especially fun for laid-back country outings. Pretty sure, I’ll never give up on them… For more on how to make denim work for you, check out what our very own Technical Designer and denim fit perfectionist, Kaitlin, has to say about solving the trickiest denim dilemmas of them all.

    I really like all these styles! Thanks for sharing ideas. I especially like the rolled cuff with booties look, I’d never though of wearing skinny jeans like this, but it’s really cute!
    I’m older than all these girls, but I still like a good denim skinny pant! My problem with finding the right ones for me is I need a high waist cut. I have a bigger than I’d like tummy and need a high waisted, skinny pant with lost of stretch!
    Please bring these to Maurice’s, which is my newest fav place to shop! We just got our new Maurice’s in my town, love shopping there for tops and dresses, but denim…not my styles…yet.

Our Oneonta NY Maurice’s has inspired and styled denim…and many other “I can/t wear’s too young styles” for my age group…and I am going to be 70!!!!! love feeling the groove (hmmmmm, for real old hippy turned …ugh..SrCitizen)!!! and not just denim, kids…the ladies at this Maurice’s certainly have made it their business to know their customer and their color/style preferences , and even then venture outside of the “comfort zone” into a new style world Sadly, our Kaytee is moving on to Saratoga NY we shall miss her enthusiastic and knowledgeable welcoming presence Fun and happy place store!!!

      LOL! I’m hearing you here! I’ve had a terrible time ‘adjusting’ myself. As I’ve aged I’ve just never felt ready to dress like my grandmother. And not only am I older, but I’m no longer thin. Menopause did me in and I’m just not up to starving myself anymore. Discovering Maurices gave me my life back. I can mix and match, find jeans and pants that actually fit and dress sylish yet age appropriate (that is, not look rediculous). That Oneonta store has the best sales associates. If it wasn’t for them I’d still be wandering around looking like I dressed out of the goodwill donation box for sure. From the first time I’ve gone in there, they’ll help me find what I need, encourage me to try new things, but they get that some things are ‘just not right’. I would not in a million years have ever thought I could wear any kind of skinny jeans, but they even have a fit that can flatter a short, overweight, over 60 (and that’s all I’ll say about that!).

  • Joan Brooks

    i cant wear skinny jeans as my calves are too large any bootcut jeans?

  • Angel Lynn

    Hey there now!!! You stopped at ’40’s’. Does that mean that women in their 50’s and 60’s are OUT? Not hardly! I am 61 and still wearing denim. I shop in the Oneonta Maurices and love it there! I may not look like I did in my 20/30’s, but I still want to feel cute, interesting, and yes – even sexy sometimes.
