How to Wear Skinny Jeans and Leggings at 40, 50 and Beyond

2503 ratings | 578833 views
Leggings and skinny jeans are a comfortable and casual way to dress at 40, 50 and beyond. But how do you wear them in a tasteful way? Hi, I'm style expert Deborah Boland. In this video I'll teach you how to wear skinny jeans and leggings so you look classy and not trashy. If you wear leggings or skinny pants you want to create that flattering ice cream cone silhouette that is wide at the top and narrows down at the bottom. So it's important you pick a jacket with a strong shoulder that nips in at the waist to give you some shape. A jacket worn with leggings or skinny pants looks very chic, just tune in and you will see what I mean. Many women wear thin leggings that are almost like leotards or leggings that reveal too much. Leggings are not pants, so you need to make sure you are cover dup enough. I give you a couple of examples of the right kind of tops to wear that look chic not rude or bold. Do you wear flats or heels with leggings? What looks best. That's is a popular question that many women have and that I address in this video. Actually neither are my favorite but see what is. To get the answers for how to wear skinny jeans and leggings for your relaxed lifestyle take a look at this video and feel free to comment and leave your own style suggestion or two.

Always cover your arse in tights or leggings with a long top or jacket ... especially if your arse is old and droopy 😝

You spoke about how to wear it, but you didn't show a "model" wearing the look you described.

Good tips but please lose or tone down the distracting music.

My advise is: before you go out, look in the mirror to see what you look like from the back and the front. If you don’t like what you see, just change into something you like. Too big a bum, cover it up, too big thighs, wear something looser. Simple, just keep looking.

I once saw this sign "ladies dress for the body you have, not the one you want".

The long belted tunic blouse and sandals are not flattering, making for a frumpy silhouette. Otherwise, a very helpful video.

nice advice...I believe not everyone is meant to be chic n hv sense of fashion..also unrelated to budgeting. My friend who was an ex model always well dressed n hv sense of fashion compares to me who hv ni taste in fashion sadly....2 thumbs up anyway!

Thank you for putting this out there. I'm 57 and I won't wear leggings unless my top covers my behind. I've seen some pretty bad dressing styles on some women wearing leggings. Funny thing was - I once seen a guy wearing them - won't go there - lol. Thank you for the good video!
I like them in a good quality and for certain moments, and of course for a certain shape. understanding that they are not pants, of course. very interesting video.

I'm so happy you said that leggings are NOT pants. Whew. Thank you. Too many ladies wearing them too tight and too thin. Then they bend over and you can see right through them, yikes! I've even seen it at the gym with those kind of leggings. It also helps to exercise to lose weight and feel great. I have free exercise videos at my place, so come visit!

This is for women 60 and up and yet they don't seem happy with the advice...My three kids are grown and I will never look old or let myself look or dress old till...I look really old...I appreciate your video...But though I won't dress too young...I won't dress too old either...I don't have a problem with leggings...I think...They can be done right and are comfortable...Thank you for your effort. :))
I refuse to look so frumpy!

Skinny jeans and leggings look great on people with stick legs. If you have big knees like me they look dreadful.

TWATB, I so agree!!!!    I don't know how leggings ever got into style or the skinny jeans.   After years of seeing this style I've observed that the ladies who can truly pull this off are tall very muscular women and that's less than .05% of the population.  Hence, 99.5% of the population should not wear them.   On thin people most look like they have knocked knees or that their hips are spaced further apart than they really are.  On overweight people and it's like watching a bowl of jelly walking down the street.   Yoga pants are for yoga and working out - that's it.  At home no big deal, just don't go out in public.   I've walked 10 to 15 steps behind ladies wearing this you start hearing giggles and lots of judgmental comments when the lady wearing them is out of earshot.   Skinny jeans - if you're heavy, then one looks like an ice cream cone.   Trust me stick with pants or a dress and you won't regret it.

Well I did hit the milestone. However, I am still petite, but haven't added those extra pounds over the years (if you know what I mean). The long blouse over the leggings or skinnies seems a bit overwhelming for me and really can't picture the idea of looking frumpy.
Tracy Rousseau (4 years ago)
Wow very classic. Thank you I am not in that price range but I can certainly find these styles in my range.
