Straight leg jeans

One of the best jean silhouettes for women over 50 is a classic straight leg denim fit. Straight leg jeans have maintained their classic denim appeal for YEARS now, and with good reason!

Skinny jeans

Skinny jeans are incredibly flattering for women over 50 because it’s a simple silhouette that fits close to the body to enhance your natural shape.
