A British survey by CollectPlus said that after age 53 we should give up wearing jeans. The reason they cited was not because we look bad wearing them but because it’s harder to find a pair of jeans that actually fits and I guess the stress is too much for us more mature women. Really!
To that I say, keep trying! Don’t give up! It is not about the label. It is not even about the price. It’s all about the fit. Persistence and patience is what is needed. Once you find that pair that fits, buy two or three pairs to be sure you don’t have to go through that again any time soon.
Do like I do. The important thing for me is to fit my derriere, thighs and inseam. So I find a pair that fits those areas and then take it to my favorite alterations shop and for a small price I have the waist taken and then I have a perfect fit.
Fashion is a lot of things to all of us. It is personal. It is practical. It is the face that we choose to show the world. It is a statement of our feelings about ourselves or, in some cases, about others. And sometimes, it’s just a pair of jeans. Now bathing suits . . .
