As winter draws to an end I want to comment on a style which I have seen many a time during the cold months.
Leggings are very comfortable and provide much needed warmth in the colder months, but it can be very unflattering if worn incorrectly even on a younger woman. Do we older women dare to wear them or not? To me the answer is a resounding yes on certain conditions.
First and foremost is the length of the tunic or top that we wear with leggings.
A top , tunic or sweater must not be shorter than mid thy preferably even longer.
Leggings look wonderful over a short dress and can even hide flaws of an older figure if worn correctly.
Leggings for an older woman look better if not fitting too tightly. It provides a much more vertical line and is slimming.
Add structure such as a blazer or jacket with your tunic or dress as this also hides flaws.
Wear shoes or boots of the same colour as the leggings it adds length and is slimming.
A word of caution: My daughters always say with my thin legs and apple figure at the top, I look like a lollipop.If the leggings and top or tunic are too short or too tight fitting, the lollipop becomes very prominent; all round top and thin sticklike bottom!! So please fellow over 55’s, let us not be lollipops, but rather stunning and stylish wearers of this style.
