With so many women’s jeans fit guides available on the internet, where can we find a guide to all the fits in one place, without the descriptions only matching one store?
Here! At SoSensational, we know there are so many styles and brands to choose from, so we’ve taken the time to put together a guide explaining each style, and how to wear them. Why not bookmark this page so you can look back to it next time you’re choosing your new pair of jeans?
Available in high, mid or low waists, skinnies are a wardrobe essential for stylish ladies over 50! We have a pair in every colour in our wardrobe, since they match perfectly with boots, trainers or pumps, as well as jumpers, shirts or t-shirts! There’s a pair of skinny jeans for every body type (find your body shape here), making these endlessly versatile.
If you’re looking for the tightest of the tight, super skinnies are the way to go! Fondly known as drainpipe jeans in a past life, super skinnies now come in a tight fit throughout the thighs, calves and ankles, and help to elongate the leg. Many come in super-stretch, soft fabrics for comfort, and you can choose between classic zip or button flies and belt loops or extra comfortable jegging styles.
If you’re looking to stay away from skin-tight jeans, skinnies work equally well tucked into boots or worn with your favourite trainers; day to night. Skinnies are slightly looser around the leg, most noticeably in the ankle, giving you an extra touch of wiggle room.
Slim or straight? Whilst some shops make these styles interchangeable, we have noticed a slight difference between the two. If you’re looking for a pair of infinitely comfortable jeans that work for both smart and casual occasions, these are surely your go-to. These suit all body shapes, but look particularly great on apple and petite figures.
Looser again than skinnies, the slim leg is fitted through the hip and thigh, and skims the calves whilst being looser from knee to them. This is a great pair to choose if you’re looking for business casual, jeans and a nice top or weekends look.
Similar to slim legs, but with a cut that comes straight from the knee to the hem, straight leg jeans are authentically stylish. Choose a ankle skimming pair for key fashion points, or a full length pair for the ultimate comfort.
Baggier jeans can look oh-so sophisticated and cool on a mature lady, and are available at a number of stores aimed at our age group, so we couldn’t miss these off the list! If you’re looking for comfy casual with a hint of chic, these are the perfect styles.
Reminiscent of the 80s and 90s, mom jeans are regularly worn by hipster millennials. However, we think the waist-cinching style can actually look great on older ladies! These jeans accentuate the waist and provide extra room for the derriere, so are perfect for pear and curvy shapes.
If moms are a little too Urban Outfitters for you, girlfriend jeans are a great alternative! The tapered straight leg comes in a relaxed fit and most have a touch of stretch. Tuck your shirt into the higher waist or throw on a tee or jumper for an effortlessly cool look whatever your age.
These are the slouchier brother to the girlfriend- lower on the waist, baggier on the leg and with less of a taper to the ankle. These look equally effortless, and look great with a surf-ready, south coast vibes look.
Tick the trend boxes with a wide leg piece; perfect for almost any body shape since it skims the thighs and elongates the leg! These jeans start slim at the hips and widen to hem, skimming perfectly above the ankle or to your feet.
If you’re looking for some boho chic jeans, flares are the perfect choice. Like the wide leg, flares are slim on your waist and thighs, and flare from your knees to your ankle. These full-length jeans elongate your legs whilst balancing out your thighs; perfect for over 50s.
A true classic, these leg lengthening jeans fit slim on the thighs and have a slight kick at the ankle. Team these with shirts and t-shirts alike, throw them on over your boots and pop on your favourite biker or padded jacket for a timeless look.
