Every now and then you put on an outfit that feels right in every way. For me, it’s usually a look that conveys carefree confidence. I can still rock skinny jeans over 40…I just do it in a refined, put-together way.
It’s time for the 8th My Refined Style Fashion Over 40 linkup! Every month I’m inspired by the creativity and fierce fashion choices my fellow over-40 fashionistas are making.
Rock Skinny Jeans Over 40
I think the word “skinny” throws a lot of us off. Few women over 40 would use this adjective to describe themselves or their clothing. And, many of us have a few curves that we would just assume not display underneath a thin layer of stretched denim…I can appreciate this sentiment.
Still, I believe you can rock skinny jeans over 40 by putting a different spin on the classic silhouette.
It has a lot to do with the area of your body you choose to emphasize. Typically, skinny jeans emphasize the rear view; however, that’s not the only way skinny jeans can highlight the figure.
Skinny jeans elongate the leg to make you appear taller and leaner; especially when paired with a neutral-colored pump or wedge. In fact, only the bottom half of my jeans are even visible in this outfit.
When buying skinny jeans over 40, consider the following tips:
- Skinny does not have to mean skin tight; however, skinny jeans are typically made to be worn that way. Be willing to go up a size to find a pair that fits without feeling like a bandage.
- Make sure to consider the back pocket placement. Long back pockets or flapped pockets are seldom flattering.
- Try multiple brands. Different jean manufacturers have different cuts.
- Skinny jeans are most flattering if they stop just at the top of the foot. Excess material at the bottom adds bulk.

Women shouldn’t have to follow a set of rules once they reach a certain age. However, the over-40 woman does develop the confidence to refine her own personal style and that’s what My Refined Style is all about!
