I’m a size 4, very athletic, fit, and 42 years old. Can/should I wear skinny jeans tucked into knee-high boots? I know it’s very “in” now, but I’m wondering if it’s okay for the over 40 crowd. I often look good in the youthful clothes, but I’m unsure if I should be wearing it. I don’t want to come across as wishing I was still 22. Thanks, Carol
Hi Carol, You absolutely can tuck in and look Fabulous after 40! Take a look at this photo. If you want to be current, wear skinny jeans tucked into tall, flat boots or tucked into tall boots with a low chunky heel. Flat boots are sporty.
They look youthful, but still age appropriate, worn with jeans or leggings tucked in. It’s much trickier to wear the tucked in look with tall, high-heeled boots. If you want to try tucking into tall, high-heeled boots, keep your boots simple.
Classic leather or suede ones, without a lot of busy hardware (studs, zippers, buckles, straps), are your safest choice. My preference is to wear high-heeled boots and wedge boots with skirts and dresses.
So Carol, go for it, and don’t forget to send a picture.
