Being comfortable is very important to most of us and nothing says comfort like leggings. This is how women over fifty can wear long, lean leggings in an easy and fashionable way.

Many women have the misconception that leggings are only for casual wear and should only be worn by those who are slim and in great shape. Nothing could be further from the truth. With proper fit and accessories, any woman over fifty can wear these with confidence.

I love this outfit for a night out with the girls. The structured, denim leggings are from Spanx. Tee shirt is from Urban Outfitters. Shoes are Marc Fisher and necklace is LOGO, both from QVC.com

Date night. Velvet, structured leggings are from Spanx. Chiffon blouse is Susan Graver at QVC.com (I love this blouse so much I also have it in nude). Guess red pumps are from Marshalls. I bought the red clutch at a discount store years ago.

It’s important to understand that not all leggings are the same. Just like any other piece of clothing leggings are available in a range of materials that affect the proper place and way to wear them. There are basically three types of leggings: athletic, which are meant for the gym and usually have spandex; structured, which are more like slim pants or jeggings; and soft and seamless which can be worn anywhere!

Lunch with my bestie 🙂 Timeless leggings from Hue worn with a grey bomber from Urban Outfiters. Shoes are Nine West bought years ago and an old white tee.

I love this tonal outfit and wear it all the time. Grey leggings from Hue. Tunic is Kate and Mallory from EVINE.com. Earth Origins grey boots from QVC.com. I also have these boots in black. When I really love something I buy multiples.

My style is to just throw things together. I wear pieces I’ve owned for years and some new items that I just purchased. Don’t be afraid to go dressy or toned down. The secret is to wear leggings that fit and are comfortable. Make sure to take your time putting them on because they require a little adjusting but once you’ve mastered their fit you will wear nothing else. Be creative because with a little time and thought, this is how all women over fifty can wear long, lean leggings.

This outfit goes from gym in the morning to a casual dinner at night. The jacket is Yummie from HSN.com. The boots are Earth Origins from QVC.com (they are the same boots in the tonal grey pic above). Leggings are LuLaRoe and are baby soft.
