Coloured Jeans: How To Pull Off Coloured Denim In Your '50s and '60s

By: The Kit

You’ve seen them everywhere -- there isn’t a shop window or in-store display that doesn’t have mannequins rocking the statement-making, bold and brightly-coloured jeans that everyone is wearing this spring.

And this trend is not just for the daring 20-something; anyone, in any age group, can wear this pop of colour. It all just comes down to the styling. One of The Kit’s go-to stylists and contributors, Ingrie Williams, gives advice on how to pull off the hottest trend this season -- no matter what your age!

In your 50s and 60s

What to look for: “A flattering fit is the most important thing to look for when it comes to coloured denim and for women in their 50s and 60s, a higher quality denim can go a long way towards a stellar fit,” says Williams. She suggests a snug fit without feeling constricted. Look for a heavier gauge weave, as it can be more forgiving over the thighs and butt.

Ways to wear them: “Overall, I think the deeper colours work well on women in their 50s and 60s. Jewel tones of emerald green, ruby red and deep purple, as opposed to the neon shades, are all on trend without being over the top.”

But if you're drawn to a bright pair, Williams says, “Go for it! Either way, a simple white button front shirt or tailored jacket would be an elegant pairing to any of these shades.”
