Skinny Legs – Do These Capri Pants Look Good On Me?

Dear Deborah,

I am wondering if I “can or should” be wearing Capri pants. These are made of a stretchy material and are about the only thing that fits me because of my super skinny legs.

Are these appropriate for my age (59) or should I forget capris and start wearing pants?  (shorts do NOT look good on me because of my skinny legs)

Hi Cathy,
Black Capris
Yes, these are age appropriate!

Yes, These Capris are fine and look absolutely age-appropriate. You are youthful looking and in great shape! (Just look at those lovely arms!!!!)

Plus, your legs are gorgeous!! Many women don’t look good in capris that hit the widest part of their leg because they have large or wide calves, but this is actually a perfect length for you. Also:

  • The top you have chosen is wonderful because it’s long enough and hits you in a good spot.
  • Your necklace is perfect to fill in the scoop neck
  • Your sandals look updated and the thickness of the straps balances out the print on the top.

Keep up the great work looking Age-Amazing™.

  1. Cathy, your capris look good on you! I suggest you were a bit more fitted to show off your waist. You have grand proportions so showcase what you have!

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

  3. 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… exciting! Thanks, Deborah and Ha; ppy New Year! ♥♥♥

  4. 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 not as flattering.

    Thanks, Cathy!

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
