Do These Capri Pants Look Good On Me?

Dear Deborah,

I realize the season has passed for these but am wondering if I “can or should” be wearing Capris pants.

Yes. Cathy Capris are still in style and you look FAB! (pants from K Mart)

They are made of a stretchy material and about the only thing that fits me because of my super skinny legs.  Is this appropriate for my age. (59)  And as long as I look like this, is it ok to still wear them or should I forget the Capris and start wearing pants.  (shorts do NOT look good on me because of my skinny legs)

Hi Cathy,

Actually, people read Fabulous After 4o from all over the world, so for some it IS  summer, so thanks for sending in this question!

Yes, Capris are very much still in style and absolutely age-appropriate. You are so youthful looking and in great shape! (Just look at those lovely arms!!!!)

And your legs are gorgeous!! Please let us know the brand of your pants, they certainly are flattering on your type of body!

  • The top you have chosen is nice too because it is long enough and hits you at a good spot.
  • Your necklace is perfect to fill in the scoop neck
  • Your sandals are updated and the thickness of the straps balance out the print in the top.

Keep up the great work at looking Age-Amazing™. Do you wear Capris pants. Please send  a photo and I will post it.

    I am curious how tall you are Cathy. I am a shorty so the capris could be too long on me. I am going to Kmart to check them out any way. You look terrific in that outfit!

  3. I think those look great on you! Nothing wrong with your outfit. :)

  4. Wow, she looks phenomenal….im jealous!

  5. I think she looks freaking fantastic!!!

  6. What a great outfit! I wear capris most of the time here in Florida but I know some of mine are too baggy to be stylish! I like the info about why this outfit is balanced…very interesting! Thanks Deborah and Happy New Year! ♥♥♥

  7. You look GREAT—and fit, what’s your secret?

  8. Cathy got back to me and said:
    You won’t believe where I got these pants or what I paid for them. They are from KMart and are the Basic Editions – relaxed fit. I have them in blue, black, grey and white. The white look fabulous on me as well – if I pair it with the right top. This brand is also available in other colors that I do NOT recommend, they are just not as flattering.

    Thanks Cathy!
