Leggings, Jeggings and Ageless Style
|image from Black Milk Clothing, Brisbane|
I saw very sheer black leggings being worn today by a lady with white hair and a figure not quite like that of the lithe model above (she was about three times the size for a start). She wore them with a nondescript lumpy jumper of indeterminate colour and sling back heels. I am not sure if when she looked in the mirror she saw 18 instead of nearing 80, but in my opinion, it was not a good look.
A few minutes later I was in the bank and saw another lady with white hair - and about the same age as the lady I just mentioned. She wore slim black jeans, a fitted black and white t-shirt with an overlayer that skimmed her body. Her hair was up, and she wore gorgeous coral lipstick and nail polish (she was a spring). She looked absolutely fantastic.
Further along I saw another very petite lady with very white hair, beautifully cropped. She wore dark blue denim jeggings tucked into knee high boots and over this, a mid thigh tunic in a pretty floral. She looked gorgeous.
Now I think older ladies can look stylish in leggings - Mary commented the other day that they look fantastic with whimsical skirts and dresses - I agree, and the lady in the example above looked fantastic in that sort of outfit. But I also think they can look awful...
Some of you have already commented that you think leggings are inappropriate or not the style you would wear.
What do you think an older lady should wear - should she wear leggings, and if so, how should she wear them? Do you think leggings can be worn in a way that can create Ageless Style?
