What length top to wear with leggings

Hi Deborah,
I’m 54, and I would like to wear leggings. Am I too old?……
Confused in Cleveland

Hi Confused,
Your question does not have a length “one size fits all” answer.  The short answer is, you’re never too old for leggings but, you’ll want to style them in a way that makes you look sophisticated, not silly. Here are some great examples that incorporate the latest trends.

1. Leggings +  A Long Shirt or Blouse

You’re fine to wear leggings over 40, or even leggings over 50, so long as you go the sophisticated route. Here’s a basic style recipe for leggings that is classy and casual. Take a black pair of leggings and wear them with a gorgeous silky blouse.

Merlot is a beautiful shade of red/purple that look rich and sophisticated on everyone. Add some faux leather leggings,  black suede booties, and a chic chain bag, and you’ve got a great weekend look.

2. Leggings + A Polished Poncho

Here’s another idea for how to wear leggings over 40…. Wrap yourself up in a poncho.

3. Leggings +  a Modern Tunic

A long tunic top or dress that that’s on the short side looks great paired with leggings. This dramatic floral tunic has a very modern feel to it that takes its inspiration from the popular Spanish Trend.

4. Leggings and Riding Boots

I don’t know about you but once fall hits I want to wear boots. Tall leather or suede riding boots are the perfect footwear when wearing leggings over 50. They’re comfy, and they look sporty and youthful. All you need to add is a cozy, long sweater to wear with your leggings. Then accessorize with a cute bag and a touch of jewelry, to look stylish and ready to take charge.

5. Leggings and a Sweater

I had to throw in this last look because sweaters with leggings are easy, and such a classic. Who doesn’t love a big, soft, oversized cowl neck sweater with a skinny pair of leggings? Put your personal touch on it with your choice of shoes and bag. This structured caramel bag has a classic vibe, and the heels on those booties say modern and fun.

These zebra stripe leggings are too crazy to be classy.

One last thing… Remember when I started off by saying that you want to look sophisticated and not silly in leggings?

Do you notice how we’ve stuck to basic black or dark brown leggings?

The most sophisticated leggings for women over 40 are either black, brown or a dark solid color.  If you are out shopping and you come across something like these wild, patterned ones and think they look like a lot of fun, please stay away. These are more of a costume than a fashion look. Grown up gals need to look classy, not flashy in leggings.

Finally, for those of you wondering if you can wear leggings when you are plus size, the answer is yes!
