Hi Everyone. Jennifer and I are a little late for our Monthly Fashion Over 50 Edit but better late than never, right. Jennifer had the great idea to discuss new jeans shapes. As far as I can tell just about anything goes with jeans right now. Supposedly the skinny is out, but the stores apparently didn’t get the memo. I spotted them everywhere. I am personally glad that they have gotten a little looser. I think it is flattering to more figures. That being said I cannot embrace the mom jean trend. Is anyone else thinking they were awful before and still are? The beauty of age is that we don’t have to wear anything that we don’t feel or look good in. Let’s take a look at some of the Over 50 New Jeans Shapes for Spring that we might be able to wear.
OVER 50 NEW JEAN SHAPES FOR SPRING
J CREW SLOUCHY BOYFRIEND
One at the top of my list is The J Crew Slouchy Boyfriend. Here I am wearing a 25 regular rolled up. I also purchased, and am keeping, the Gap Mid Rise Girlfriend (only $69.95) and I got them on special sale. The only difference is the Gap Girlfriend is not quite as high and a little bit thinner in weight. I like them both but I am betting the J Crew will hold up a little better. The Gap also fits a teeny bit snugger. I purchased the same size in both.
I am wearing them with my favorite Michael Stars tee, an old old hat, and some comfy yellow box (very reasonable) sandals I picked up last year. Have you ever tried them? They are quite well made and cushy. All items are linked below the picture.
SHOP MY LOOK
In this photo, I am wearing the same jeans (only in a petite so they aren’t rolled up). This Eileen Fisher jacket (now only on Ebay) you have seen many times before including in this post about packing for a three-day Conference in S.F (right when covid hit). Here I am wearing it as a shirt instead of a jacket, with jewelry from my collection and those Artemis Mules I love so much. I wish she would bring this jacket back. I love the cut of it.
SHOP THE LOOK
I also purchased the Banana Republic Petite High Waist jean with raw hem back in January. You saw them in this post How to elevate your at ahome style here. I don’t buy new jeans very often obviously. I really like this pair as well. I also bought a petite because I like more of a cropped look. I don’t want mine dragging on the ground so that I trip over them. This scarf is really old but I still love the ombre look and beautiful colors. I am wearing it with Laidback London sandals (no longer available) but similar linked below and a linen shirt from my favorite local boutique Tancredi & Morgen.
SHOP THE LOOK
In this photo, I am wearing the reversible Kantha coat that you saw in this post on how to wear a Statement Jacket over 50. These jackets or similar can be found on Etsy here. They are such good buys because you are getting two for the price of one. Here I am wearing the Madewell vintage jeans (they no longer have the raw hem version of this style), navajo earrings (similar here), and my favorite Michaels Stars Shine Tee. I don’t believe this color is available, but there are many others.
SHOP THE LOOK
This is what the reverse looked like in the post I mentioned above. Can you believe how dramatic the difference is?
