Jeans Over 40 – Inspiration From Instagram

Now and then, it’s good to take a second look at something we wear all the time. Take jeans, for example. Have you fallen into the rut wearing the same type of top with your jeans over and over, or have you been wearing one style of jeans for the last five years?

If so, it’s time for an update, and what better place to find inspiration than from the 40+ fashionistas on Instagram. Here’s a look at some new ideas for how to wear jeans at 40, 50, and beyond.

    1. I am the same height as you and am also pear shaped. It does make it tricky to style jeans sometimes. I would love to see photos of shorter pear shaped women wearing jeans.
