Fashion over 50 (5 Models of Blue Jeans for Mature Women) Hey awesome ones, Heather here and todayI’m going to talk about one of my favorite items in my wardrobe and they are my pairs of jeans. And I’m really excited to bring this to you and although I was an 80s model I’m not going to show you any jeans that are kind of out there or super expensive. They’re going to be affordable and wearable.
And I know a lot of you like my style so what I’m going to do is I’m going to just continue doing these videos these fashion videos for all of us over 50. And well let’s get started with my favorite pairs of blue jeans. So if you’re around my age wearing bluejeans like they never really went out of style. And don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t wear jeans anymore. Hey, I’m 64 years old and there’s no way anybody is taking away my jeans.
Don’t let anybody take away your jeans…that did sound right. You know what I mean. Now one of the top styles of jeans that many women are wearing but they say that older women can’t wear these yeah anyway they’re skinny jeans. And I wear them and I do have a few rules though for wearing skinny jeans. My number one rule is they have to be darker denim. You know it’s kind of slimming the darker denim. Number two they have to have stretch in them and number three I’ve got to be covering my butt.
So let’s take a look at this clip of me with my skinny jean. So here I am in the skinny jeans and I’ve paired this with kind of a denim jacket and you can see discovering my butt which I think is really really important. And also this has got a higher waist that I really really like and it’s also the stretchy material which I really need the stretchy material. It’s super comfy as well and also I’ve paired this with a pair of higher ankle boots which I think look nice with it but also you could wear pumps or you know there are all kinds of different things that you can wear with these skinny jeans. It’s a youthful and attractive look.
Now I want to talk for a minute about the, you know…the washed and the faded jeans something…I don’t know if you can see this Bill but something like this kind of jean and I do have a few of these in my wardrobe but to be honest with you I really don’t wear them that much and the reason that I don’t wear them that much is that I find that the darker denim is so much more slimming for me. And also I find that the darker denim it just kind of goes with everything where that wash kind of look well it really doesn’t. So let’s go on to my next favorite pair of jeans and that’s the bootcut jean.
Now I know that the big 1970s bell-bottoms you know witha huge bell-bottoms are really back in style right now but the one thing I likeabout a bootcut Jean is it never really seems to go out of style. Now anotherlittle trick if you want to buy yourself a pair of bootcut jeans is make sure…well you’re wearing your boots when you try on your jeans or having them measuredbecause you don’t want them dragging on the ground and you also don’t want tohave them too short. So here I am with my bootcut jeans and I’m wearing a yellowtop.
Apparently yellow is gonna be a big color for 2020 and as you can see this again they’re higher waisted they’re nice and stretchy just like I like them and also they are the bootcut as I mentioned. And here I am with a pair of boots and these are pretty good as far as the length you know. I guess different boots are different but they work out pretty good and I like this look. Now like I mentioned before one thing that you’ll notice about the five different blue jeans that I’m showing you they never really seem to go out of style.
So you’re the kind of person that you want to want to buy something and kind of set it and forget it and not worry about all the different styles and how they go out of style and by the way I have learned that the great big distress you know three holes around the knees kind of look is going out of style. And I never did buy into that distressed ripped jeans look. So kind of happy to see that and I’m also kind of happy that I didn’t buy a whole bunch of them because the small distress is still going to be in style but those big holes never really did get that. Do you guys get that? And for number three let’s look…let’s look…Oh, Heather anyway for number three let’s look at capris.
There you go. I was just trying to make up a little rhyme there but anyway these capris that we’re going to take a look at again they’re in the darker wash yes I have bought them in the lighter wash I don’t wear them anymore. Live and learn, anywho let’s take a look. So here’s a nice pair of capris and just do a little twirl here because these have got the pockets in the back so I don’t have to cover my butt so much with these. I’m wearing a nice little top with it…again it’s a higher waist and stretchy material and these are great for summer.
I’ve got a pair of nice little pumps with them but a lot of women also wear over-the-knee boots with them you know in the wintertime and I guess why not. But here’s a close-up of my little pumps that I love with them kind of goes with a lot of different kinds of jeans as well. And now these next jeans I’m sure a lot of you seen them before, they’re my boyfriend’s jeans. And usually, I wear them kind of rolled up at the bottom with some running shoes, maybe a hoodie super casual but in this one, I actually rolled down the bottom of them and really kind of stepped up my style a notch. Let’s take a look. Now isn’t this a different look for those boyfriend jeans of mine and I just have sort of a matching shirt underneath. Again love these there’s not even a real zipper on them.
It’s high-waisted super elastic and stretchy and pairs these with well a pair of animal print shoes to go with my animal print jacket and these are super comfortable. They’re not a high heel so you can wear them…oh here’s whatI’m showing you I’m showing the regular boyfriend jean with a little bit of a roll-up, but for this kind of style since it’s a little bit fancier like the boyfriend jeans rolled down. Why not. Now isn’t it funny how sometimes you limit things in your closet like that leopard animal print jacket?
I was really only wearing that for business, you know with skirts or with black pants or something along those lines and then when I was doing this video I said to myself hey let’s sort of change it up a little bit and that’s the beauty of having all these jeans. You know you can really change up different kinds of looks like I just did.
Now the next pair of jeans I might have to talk some of you into it and what it is it’s not a jean skirt it’s a jean skort. And let me just show you…Bill, I don’t know if you can see that underneath this jean skort are a pair of shorts. They’re already they’re really actually built right in there and skorts have come back. Now there are a lot of different styles. I’ve got dozens….well not dozens…I’ve got about I’d say about four different kinds of skorts. So I have them in white. I have them in jeans. I have one in black. So it’s something that you should maybe take a look at.
Now just before I show this skirt to you I want to remind you how warm and how hot the summers have been lately and you don’t want to walk around in a pair of jeans. You don’t want to walk around even sometimes in a pair of capris. And I don’t know…this skort just kind of…it just adds a little bit more youthfulness and I like it a lot better than a pair of shorts. Now if you’re one of those women who doesn’t want to show off her legs because you have varicose veins or you have cellulite, well welcome to the club. So do I but you know what I always say this…we only have so many summers and I want to enjoy them. I want to enjoy them in comfort.
Hey I also have really really pale legs too and I mean it doesn’t look great but I feel great andI’m enjoying myself and I’m comfortable. And let’s take a look at this outfit andI’ll kind of show you what I mean. So here I am in that little skirt and it’s a very nice style. I don’t think it’s too youthful and I’ve got a hoodie on and as you can see it’s high waisted again which is great. Very very stretchy and it’s a great outfit to wear when I’m walking the dog and trying to get in my10,000 steps for the day.
