Wide Leg Pants for Women over 50

I have noticed some sites call them culottes (if they are cropped), some sites call them Palazzo Pants and some just plain old wide leg. Whatever you choose to call them, I think they can be quite flattering on women our age. Let’s take a look at Wide Leg Pants for Women over 50 and discuss their history.

According to Wikipedia “Palazzo pants are long women’s pants cut with a loose, extremely wide leg that flares out from the waist”. “Culottes are an item of clothing worn on the lower half of the body, can refer to split skirts, historical men’s breeches, or women’s underpants.” Palazzo pants for women first became a popular trend in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The style was reminiscent of the wide-legged cuffed pants worn by some women fond of avant-garde fashions in the 1930s and 1940s, particularly actresses such as Katherine Hepburn, Greta Garbo, and Marlena Dietrich.

Thanks to their flattering silhouette, these pants are great for women of all ages, heights and body shapes. Diane Keaton has rocked the look for years. Wide leg pants have been the signature of both Diane Keaton and Meg Ryan. Jane Fonda often sports a slimmer version and Helen Mirren has often been spotted in more of a palazzo look.

Can ordinary over 50-year-olds pull it off? Sure we can. Thanks to their flattering silhouette, these pants are great for women of all ages, heights, and body shapes. They accentuate your waist and can hide a multitude of lower body sins, creating the illusion of an hourglass figure. If you are in your twenties or thirties you might be able to pull off the “pooled pant” look. For our age group, they should just skim the ground, unless they are cropped.

Our late friend, stylist, and mentor Brenda Kinsel was an ace at styling “well anything. We miss her so. Here she is styling wide leg pants to perfection. You can read about how she styled wide leg pants here

If you weren’t lucky enough to know Brenda and you want to learn more about styling anything bookmark her website.

Brenda would often highlight an outfit she spotted on someone on the street in her anatomy of an outfit series. Like this chic lady she noticed at an antique fair. You can read that post here.

My friend Elizabeth (aka the Contessa) wouldn’t think of wearing anything but a wide-leg pant, and she wears them well. She is quite tall so she has no trouble pulling off a totally voluminous look on the top and bottom. I would look like a “tank” in this.

Linda V Wright is rarely seen in anything but a wide-cut pant. She just oozes style. Here she has a crisp white shirt (a trademark of her shop Crimson in Paris)tied at the waist with her signature wide leg pant.

Here she pairs an unexpected combo, suede, and linen and belts the pants to accentuate the waist.

Beth Djalili from Style at a Certain Age rocks an Audrey Hebpurnesque look in black and white. I love the look of the cropped pant with the lace-up sandals. I have a pair on order.

For the upcoming summer, loose-fitting breathable clothes can strike the perfect balance between style and comfort. Balance out the loose fitting pants with a short jacket like Jennifer from a Well Styled Life did here.

Or with a body-hugging shirt with linen pants can be much cooler than a restrictive pair of shorts in a heavier weight. I am wearing my favorite CP Shades Wendy Pant here with the JP and Mattie shirt from Sundance, now only available in blue, and my favorite mules from Artemis Design Co. You can find the links and details to this post here.

These pants are also great belted like this. For spring to summer, I prefer flat sandals or closed-toe mules as I did above. Here I am wearing my favorite linen pant the Wendy from CP Shades, thanks to Ebay, I now have them in practically every color known to man thanks Elizabeth. You can purchase them in white here, on the CP Shades website, or at one of your favorite local boutiques. This seller on Ebay has several colors at good prices.

If you can still wear heels like Eugenia from Age of Grace, this would be a great look for a summer wedding. If not a pair of dressy sandals would do the trick as well. This is a signature look for Eugenia. You can get many more ideas from her blog or her instagram here.

On one of my recent Sunday Favorites posts with my outfit of the week featured these gorgeous J Crew wide-leg pants, that have been a reader favorite.

Here is a round up of my favorite wide-leg pants at all price points. I will feature one pair in my outfit of the week on Sunday, and another in an upcoming fashion post with Jennifer and Sarah.

The beauty of being “a certain age” is that we can wear whatever we feel comfortable and stylish in. I have been wearing wide leg pants on this blog since 2018. I am happy that they are once again considered stylish. They have always been comfortable.

The 18 Best Jeans for Petite Women of 2022

Read on for some of the best jeans for petite figures in all shapes and washes as well as expert styling advice.

Chi Li , founder of the retail site Petite Dressing, and Josiane Konaté , founder of Petite and Bold, agree that hunting for jeans is no easy feat—but with their tips and tricks, you can find your denim soulmate.

According to Stitch Fix Stylist Jessica Smith , you don’t just have to rely on eyeballing it. Rather, we should all be shopping by inseam (AKA the actual length of the pants). With the right length, you can wear just about any cut or color. “For petite wearers, it’s all in the length—leaning into proportion and scale to select an inseam that creates balance to your go-to jeans,” says Smith.

Our top pick is Levi's Ribcage Straight Ankle jeans because it offers a full-length design for petites from a shorter inseam option, which means no rolling is necessary. However, if you're looking for something with a tad more stretch, you can't go wrong with Frame's Le High Straight High Rise style.

For those who are petite—or 5-foot-4 and under— the search can be extra difficult. Most jeans are modeled on taller figures, so online shopping becomes a guessing game of squinting at the screen and trying to imagine how much longer those jeans will look on you. Sure, you can always take a pair to a tailor for hemming, but wouldn’t it be wonderful to have them arrive perfectly as they are?

Shopping for the perfect pair of jeans can be as challenging as shopping for a swimsuit or lingerie—if not more. With so many different cuts, washes, rises, and ways of measuring, finding the right jeans is like solving a Rubix Cube.

Best Overall: Levi's Ribcage Straight Ankle Women’s Jeans Free People View On Amazon View On Nordstrom View On Who else recommends it? Forbes, The Strategist, and Today all picked Levi's Ribcage Straight Ankle Jeans.

There’s a reason why Levi’s has been the leader in denim for over 100 years. Over the decades, they have been able to evolve and adapt to modern trends while weaving in their classic heritage. I love Levi’s because I know I can find 100 percent cotton blends (I try to avoid stretch as much as possible), and I adore the iconic pocket logo that is just enough embellishment for my tush. Today, Levi’s offers jeans in every style as well as offering a range of prices from budget to more pricer options with their premium line. They also offer a range of inseams which is key for the petite. For me, every jean search starts at Levi’s. This pick is especially perfect thanks to the ankle-length design and shorter inseam which means no rolling is necessary. Material: 99% cotton, 1% elastane | Size Range: 23-32 waist | Inseam: 27 or 29 inches | Care: Wash once every 10 wears at most; machine wash and dry inside-out with like colors

Best Budget: Gap Sky High Rise Vintage Slim Jeans Gap View On There must be something in San Francisco's water because Gap is another iconic jean brand born from the Bay. Compared to Levi’s, they sell slightly cheaper options while still offering the same range of styles. Offering petite sizes, Gap tailors to tinier frames. Yet just because the jeans are affordable doesn’t mean they offer less in quality. With their initiative to become more sustainable, they use a certain percentage of recycled cotton in their denim, so you can feel better about investing in a new pair. Material: 87% cotton, 7% recycled cotton, 5% recycled polyester, 1% elastane | Size Range: 24-30 petite | Inseam: 24.5 inches | Care: Machine wash

Best High-Waisted: Everlane The Way-High Jean 4.7 Everlane View On There are high-waisted jeans and then there are high-waisted jeans. With a 12⅛ inch rise, these are Everlane’s highest pair and will make you equally elated when you try them on. The straight leg has a 27.5-inch inseam so it’s not too long, not too short. Made from a blend of 98 percent organic cotton and 2 percent elastane, they have that sturdy denim feel to reel you in with just the right amount of stretch so you know, you can sit and eat. Li swears by high-waisted jeans to elongate her legs and these will do just the trick. Material: 98% cotton, 2% elastane | Size Range: 24-35 | Inseam: 27.5 or 29.5 inches | Care: Machine wash cold, inside-out; tumble dry low The 9 Best Places to Buy Shoes Online of 2022

Best Cropped: DL1961 Bridget Boot High Rise Instasculpt Crop View On Amazon View On Nordstrom View On Bloomingdales The words “cropped jeans” may elicit memories of overly faded capris that hit your legs at the worst spots. Rest assured today’s denim isn’t that of the early 2000s. According to Smith, a cropped leg can look very modern this season. “If you are looking to highlight this season’s cropped straight-leg denim trend, choose a shorter inseam and higher rise to create the illusion of a longer silhouette. Find a pair that hits above your ankle bone for a trendy twist,” says Smith. Case in point: DL1961 Bridget Boot. This high-rise crop looks chic and sophisticated with just a smidge of fraying at the end. Made with the brand’s high-retention elastane technology, the style smooths, lifts, and conforms to your body without losing shape. It comes in three shades, black, medium, and light wash, so you can slip it on for any occasion and mood. Material: 93% cotton, 6% polyester, 1% Lycra | Size Range: 23-35 | Inseam: 26 inches | Care: Machine wash cold; dry flat

Best Low-Rise: Silver Jeans Tuesday Low Rise Slim Bootcut Jeans View On Amazon View On View On Zappos Low rise jeans may be one of the most divided denim trends, but like with all fashion trends, there is a time and place for the below-belly-button style. Whether you are the first to embrace the return of the low rise or have always been a loyal fan, Silver’s Tuesday Low Rise Slim Bootcut Jeans should fill your fashion craving. The solid indigo color and minimal details feel like a modern take on the iconic early 2000s style. The brand ​​implements front-to-back proportions and a slightly contoured waistband to give the illusion of curves and prevent gaping. The bootcut also balances out the silhouette and comes in a 31-inch inseam. Material: 93% cotton, 5% polyester, 2% elastane | Size Range: 24-34 | Inseam: 31, 33, or 35 inches | Care: Machine wash

Best Stretchy: Madewell Petite 9-Inch Mid-Rise Roadtripper Supersoft Jeans Nordstrom View On Amazon View On Nordstrom View On Everyone needs a good pair of black skinny jeans, and this style from Madewell offers that denim look with extra softness that could fool you into thinking you are wearing leggings. Made from the brand’s Roadtripper Supersoft denim, the pair is lightweight, stretchy, and breathable, so you can dance all night without feeling weighed down. Madewell offers this style in petite, so you don’t have to worry about rolling the ankles. Material: 93% cotton, 5% polyester, 2% elastane | Size Range: 23-28 petite | Inseam: 26 inches | Care: Machine wash

Best Skinny: Madewell Petite 9-Inch Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans View On Amazon View On View On While the internet may still debate if skinny jeans are in or out, the truth is that they are a classic style that will forever be essential when tucking into boots. Smith recommends going for a shorter inseam in this type to create a longer silhouette—nothing is worse than having extra fabric bunched up at the ankles. Woven with Tencel lyocell, these skinnies have enough stretch, so they aren’t cutting off your circulation. Reviewers say they still hold up to whatever sitting, bending, and walking your day has in store. Material: 92% cotton, 6% polyester, 2% elastane | Size Range: 23-32 petite | Inseam: 26 inches | Care: Machine wash The 12 Best Designer Tote Bags of 2022

Best Flared: Mother The Weekender Fray View On Anthropologie View On View On Saks Fifth Avenue Being on the shorter side doesn’t mean you have to avoid the extra fabric that comes in the form of a flared fit. Flared jeans can make you appear taller, especially when you pair them with heeled boots or clogs. “One misconception that I'd like to see being of the past is that petite women can't wear wide or flare jeans. This is not true,” says Konaté. “They add height and look very classic and put together on us. Of course, it all comes to balancing the volume with a more fitted or shorter top.” For a modern take on the flare that feels more 2021 than the 1970s, consider Mother’s Weekender. The 31-inch inseam means it will be long enough to wear with high heels without dragging on the ground. Made in Los Angeles from 94 percent cotton, it has just enough stretch to get you through the day. The washes range from solid to subtle fading and whisking for all kinds of aesthetics. Material: 92% cotton, 6% polyester, 2% elastane | Size Range: 23-34 | Inseam: 31 inches | Care: Machine wash

Best Distressed: Agolde Riley High Rise Straight Crop Jeans View On Amazon View On Nordstrom View On When it comes to wearing distressed denim, the key is finding the right amount of details that won’t be too overpowering for the petite frame. The Riley High Rise Straight Crop strikes the right balance with simple slashes at the knees that can naturally expand with wear and tear. Add in the high rise, straight leg, and cropped hem, and you really can’t go wrong with these, whether you pair them with sneakers, boots, or sandals. Made from 100 percent cotton, these jeans won’t leave you sagging. Konaté names Agolde as one of her favorite jean brands and we see why. Material: 100% organic cotton | Size Range: 23-34 | Inseam: 25.25 inches | Care: Machine wash cold

Best Mom Jeans: Levi's Wedgie Straight Leg View On Amazon View On View On As a petite woman myself (I’m 5-foot-3-and-a-half, on a good day), I know the struggle of finding a pair of mom jeans that are comfy but not too overwhelming for my figure. I usually have good luck with Levi’s, though, so when I tried Levi's Wedgie Straight Leg Jeans, I knew I had to buy them. They have that vintage, not-too-tight vibe, but as the name suggests, the fit lifts and accentuates the booty, which I think everyone wants in a good pair of mom jeans. Best of all, they come in a 26-inch inseam option, making them the perfect full-length pair of jeans for my height. And with only 1 percent elastane, these jeans barely stretch. No saggy butts here. Material: 99% cotton, 1% elastane | Size Range: 23-32 | Inseam: 26 or 28 inches | Care: Machine wash and dry inside-out with like colors The 19 Best White Button-Up Shirts to Build Up Your Basics Collection

Best Straight: Frame Le High Straight Jeans in Film Noir Net-A-Porter View On Amazon View On Nordstrom View On Wider than skinny jeans but slimmer than bootcut or flare, you can’t go wrong with the timeless straight-leg shape. And Frame's Le High style is ideal for petite figures with its slimmer fit and 27-inch inseam. Take it from the buyers themselves—this is Frame's best-selling style. The cotton/modal/polyester/elastane blend is made to last as well as offers the perfect amount of give and comfort. Material: 76% cotton, 15% modal, 6% polyester, 3% elastane | Size Range: 23-34 | Inseam: 27 inches | Care: Machine wash

Best Bootcut: Levi's 725 High Rise Bootcut Jeans Levi's View On Amazon View On View On “Bootcut styles are back and we’re here for it! This silhouette is a must for any petite frame, especially in a light-medium wash,” says Smith. “Remember, the correct inseam is most important on flare and bootcut denim, as having them hemmed will lose their shape.” Smith recommends an inseam between 28 to 30 inches for bootcut style, and these Levi's have you covered all the way down to 25 inches. This style lengthens legs with its high rise, slim fit, and solid colors. Leave it to Levi’s to master the bootcut. Material: 60% cotton, 22% viscose, 16% polyester, 2% elastane | Size Range: 23-33 | Inseam: 26, 28, 30, 32, or 34 inches | Care: Machine wash and dry inside-out with like colors

Best Curvy: Everlane The Curvy ’90s Cheeky Jean Everlane View On There’s a reason why shopping for jeans is such a puzzle. It’s not just about how tall you are, but it’s also about your hip to waist ratio. Thankfully, the geniuses at Everlane have crafted The Curvy ’90s Cheeky Jean with an increased hip-to-waist ratio to improve the waist gap. Choose between a 26.5- or a 28.5-inch inseam for the ideal length. Made from 100 percent organic cotton and in factories using sustainable practices, the pair is an investment you can feel good about owning. Material: 100% organic cotton | Size Range: 23-33 | Inseam: 26.5 or 28.5 inches | Care: Machine wash cold, inside-out; tumble dry low

Best Boyfriend: NYDJ Relaxed Piper Ankle Jeans View On Amazon View On Nordstrom View On Boyfriend jeans can be tricky. By definition, they have a looser fit. But when you don’t have a ton of height to play with, it’s easy to start drowning in something baggy. “Looser fitted jeans are trending, but for petites, anything too baggy or too loose is not flattering,” says Konaté. “Boyfriend jeans can work, but you need to go with a slim version of these.” That’s why NYDJ Relaxed Piper Ankle Jeans struck our eyes. Not only do they come in petite sizing but the style itself is streamlined and slim, while still maintaining that laidback look. Oversized front pockets add utility-chicness. And we can’t get over the dip-dyed portion at the end of the hem that adds a unique detail. Material: 100% organic cotton | Size Range: 00-18 petite | Inseam: 25 inches | Care: Machine wash cold, inside-out; tumble dry low

17 Things Byrdie Editors Are Wearing While Working From Home

But that doesn’t mean you don’t want to look stylish. Gap has got you covered with a variety of maternity styles at affordable prices.

This printed pair from BDG looks more artistic than trendy with its artfully placed splotches and rust-brown color. With a 27.5-inch inseam and a wide leg, they should hit you at just the ankle. One of the perks of wearing printed jeans is that they practically complete your entire outfit—you just have to find a simple top and jacket to tie up the loose ends. Pair these with a simple white sweater or T-shirt and a great pair of boots. Doja Cat would approve. Material: 100% cotton | Size Range: 24-34 | Inseam: 27.5 inches | Care: Machine wash

Absolutely the Best Styles of Jeans For Women Over 50

The world of denim is rapidly changing. Because of all the great new looks coming forward, it’s time for us to have another conversation about styling denim. What should you look for? Are skinny jeans still in style? Which looks are best jeans for older women? and, How you put stylish outfits together with the new silhouettes?

As mature women, we ask many more questions, such as “is this age appropriate? And “how can I create my own unique look?” We are also more aware of what may or may not work with our body type. I’ve written about working on finding your unique style as well as the question of being “age-appropriate.” The short version comes down to finding your vibe, (mine is modern classic) but there is boho, trendy, sporty, casual chic, and so on. These are how to describe your “vibe”. Once you have that, and your body basics, you will start to screen out things that don’t fit your vibe. There is no best jeans look for everyone. Choosing the right jeans has become individualized–look for inspiration but don’t worry about following lots of rules.

Fashion Flash What To Think about this season Skinny jeans are making their way out of the spotlight right now. To me, that’s great news—I was tired of the look and ready for something new. Jeans with a higher rise are also much more popular right now—think of 1980’s and 1990s styles. High-waisted jeans are often a lot more flattering—no more worry about muffin tops! Wider legs on jeans are also very popular and are a lot more flattering for many figure types. You will see straight-leg jeans, flairs, cropped jeans, and jeans with a vertical slit at the ankle. Jeans with rips at the knees are still floating around, but distressed jeans seem to go the way of skinny jeans. If you have them and love them, by all means—wear them. If you are like me—ready for a new look, keep reading.

Modern Classic Styling With Denim

If you go for a classic look some of the new styles will be right up your alley, you will notice a number of great classic looks that go with the new jean styles. Look for straight legs, boot cuts, or flairs in a dark wash. Button-down shirts tucked in with a great belt, and a pair of loafers of heels look amazing with these jeans. Choose a pump or slide with a kitten heel or higher heel. Look for a flat slide with a woven band across the instep. I love these looks because they are magic for almost any body shape.

Style jeans with blazers, (a black blazer is always great) button-ups with sweaters worn over the shoulders. V-neck vests with or without a shirt are perfect for this style. A classic white t-shirt is always good, though this year, the mock turtle neck and round neck shirts will take the place of last year’s v-neck. Look for high waist jeans -they are always a good idea.

Look for denim shorts with trouser styling, for a little more polish—I often skip denim shorts but this year, I purchased a pair of “a-line” denim shorts because they are a bit more tailored and less casual than cut-offs. For summer, white jeans are always a great option and look great on women of all ages.

Trend Lovers

For those of you who love fashion trends, the vertical slit at the ankle worn with a pair of kitten heel pointed-toe shoes is super chic.

Pegleg style jeans like those seen in the 1990s are also on-trend. The jeans are a little bit higher waisted they look beautiful on people who have a little more curve to their figure. Older jeans can be brought on trend by adding a roll to the cuffs, bringing the length of the jeans a few inches above the ankle bone.

Boho girls are going to love relaxed-fit jeans in a light wash with rips at the knee, worn with tiny floral print tops—think of the 1960s and flat sandals. This looks great with a broad-brimmed straw hat.

Sporty girls will love “a-line” high-rise jeans with a body-conscious top and a pair of fresh white trainers and a ball cap.

While a few low-rise jeans hit the runway this year, middle-aged women need not take heed—medium and high rise styles are here to stay for a while. There are many styles that will suit our age group. It just takes a little time to find the right cut and the perfect fit.

When it comes to denim lengths, the cropped length with a slight flair looks great, as do jeans that go right to the floor. It just depends on your personal style and body type as to which is going to work best for you.

Trending for 2022

You’re going to be noticing that tops are tucked in—white button-down shirts are a must, as are more body-conscious tops that are worn with wide-leg jeans. Half tucked blouses and sweaters are still popular, as is tying a button up at the waist.

Casual tops with a square neckline and puffy sleeves are popular as are tops that wrap or are gathered at the waist.

Belt wearing falls into two camps, those who wear them and those who don’t. Many of the young girls I see on the streets are not wearing belts. But statement belts are still a popular way to bring attention to the waistline while creating structure and interest to the look.

When it comes to shoes and sandals, clogs, Birkenstocks, and delicate kitten heels are all being worn with jeans this season. As a lover of classic looks, I am gravitating to high heels with my jeans — but white Birkenstocks, flats with a wide braided strap, and a square toe are trending and look great with the wider leg jeans and slightly shorter pant lengths.

The Denim Pieces I Have Chosen for 2022

I’m really enjoying the flares and straight cropped jeans. This look is polished and best for my classic style wardrobe. I’ve been removing the skinny and button-front jeans from my closet—they just aren’t as flattering for my figure. My goal is to build a wardrobe that looks great with my figure rather than following trends. I am also focusing on clothing that works with my warm-weather lifestyle. I bought two pairs of Veronica Beard’s Beverly jeans I loved them so much. You check them out here.

These beauties are in my closet and I can’t wait to wear them. Get yours here.

We’re also not seeing the button fly jeans that were so hot a few years ago. in years past so I have I have those in my pile to send over to a resale shop. When it comes to denim we’re also seeing denim dresses that are amazing looking, however for Florida life, which is what I’ve been kind of focusing more on in the last year is really kind of focusing on what kinds of clothes that people actually wear in warmer climates.

Other Denim Looks:

Denim dresses have been really popular this year, I showed one this fall that I loved but didn’t buy—because, well, Florida—I just wouldn’t get the wear out of. I’ve also seen denim coveralls that look amazing—again, I would not purchase them-too hard to use the restroom and too warm. If I lived in a cool climate, I’d definitely grab a denim dress.

This gorgeous dress would be in my closet if I lived in a cooler climate Click to Buy

Short denim skirts are also on-trend and are a great way to wear denim without diving into the world of denim shorts.

We’re also seeing a kind of a skirt and blazer look with a shorter skirt and you might pull on a nice cute little denim skirt to wear with a little blazer and kind of create that look. Which is also very cute.

I love this jumpsuit, and again, it would be in my closet if I lived in a cooler climate. Make it yours here.

There are so many great new looks to experiment with over the next few seasons! After several seasons of being bored with jeans, I am inspired, and have already scored a good pair of jeans—but there is no best way of styling jeans, and no best pair—I think having several pairs of jeans to wear styled in different ways is a good thing.

Denim Style Tips Take the time to get a great fit higher waisted jeans will help avoid the muffin top. Don’t be afraid to try high-rise jeans or straight-leg jeans. Play around with your wardrobe and create a bunch of casual outfits. Try on your jeans with various shoes to make sure you are getting the right length . Be sure to check Pinterest for great outfit ideas Don’t worry about fashion rules—they are for the birds. If you want to develop great style, you have to experiment and take into consideration the entire look.

Suzanne – Ask Suzanne Bell – Think jeans aren’t for you? Think again. Like many women, I hate shopping for jeans. It’s a pain in the butt. So perhaps you’ve given up – convinced yourself that jeans are not for you. Like swimsuits and bras, jeans are not a one style fits all. But with some guidance, I think you will find that jeans can be a classic staple. Find the fit for you, and you’ll have a wardrobe workhorse for life.

Julie – Fashion Trends and Friends and Instagram FashionTandF – Dark wash, light wash, distressed, high, mid and low waisted, flares, bootcut, wide leg, skinny, curvy fit, boyfriend…so many choices with colors, fit and style! How do you even begin?! I’m taking the mystery out of how to style your body type and sharing my current favorite jeans!

Nancy – Nancy’s Fashion Style – I am, and never have been, a huge denim lover. Although I have to say that I already own 3 pairs of jeans! But I did love this jumpsuit years ago, it was a bit snug so gave it away. Might have to shop for another one! I think I will love denim one day!

Nicole – High Latitude Style – This look triples on denim with the shirt skirt and booties.Unfortunately, denim or the good old blue jeans are not a good idea in winter in Alaska. It dries too slowly and hence your sweat may freeze. Therefore, denim is either a cover-up in summer in the form of a jacket or mosquito protection when gardening in the form of jeans. Ever since my college time, I had a denim skirt despite they don’t drape nicely.

Emma – The Style Splash – Until recently, I had never owned a denim dress or skirt…and then I bought two denim vintage dresses on eBay! I love the style of this dress, with the shoulder pads and embellishment. Oh, and it has pockets too!

Shelbee – Shelbee on the Edge – I am embracing the resurgence of the 90s denim trends with my oversized black distressed dad jeans. I remember wearing my dad’s jeans exactly this way 30 years ago!

Amy – Amy’s Creative Pursuits – Denim dresses never go out of style, but they are really trending right now. I have had this denim dress in my closet for years. I normally wear it in the warmer months, but here I styled it for cooler temperatures.

Ada – Elegance and Mommyhood – A pair of dark wash skinny jeans will never ever go out of style – I don’t care what “the style experts” say. Dark skinny jeans are something every woman needs in her closet. I paired mine with the color of the year in a gorgeous shade of lilac.
