Thanks for sharing your style Rena!

What a surprise to find myself in the line-up. Didn’t expect that. Thank you. I find leggings tricky but soooo comfortable. I sometimes doubt whether I can still pull it off, but with a longer top, covering my bum, I think it is alright.
The leggings of Barbara van der Zanden are awesome. They stay put and look a bit like trousers, but are really leggings. I find that her website photos do not do her garments justice. I have a pair and they so good. For whom is interested:

Definitely all right! You have lots of great leggings and skinny looks 🙂 Perhaps Barbara should ask you to be the model for some new photos!

Andrea@WellnessNotes

I LOVE leggings! 🙂 So many fabulous looks! And thanks for including one of mine!

Sylvia

Thanks for sharing your style with the #40plusstyle community Andrea!

Thank you so much Sylvia for including me in your blog. It’s great to be part of such an amazing collection of style icons.

Sylvia

And it’s great to have you here with us!

Diana Gabriel

Thank you Sylvia. Debra and I were included in the New York Times article Style, Not Age. So exciting…Denton Taylor took the photos!!!

I am such a lover of leggings {a new look for me}! I used to think I was *gasp* too old to pull off the look. What was I thinking? Leggings, when done right, is probably one of the most fun and versatile looks out there. I love the way the ladies have either gone bold or subtle. Leggings as pants or as tights, just perfect!

Sylvia

Are you sharing your style on Instagram with the #40plusstyle tag Daenel. It would have been great to include you here 🙂

Thanks for the inspiration. I was always dead set against leggings, but I recently had surgery and my hand was forced into trying a pair as they were easy. Guess what happened? Yep. Once again, I have to walk back a claim that I’ve made that I would “never” wear leggings.

Sylvia

It’s interesting how we sometimes keep resisting things and then try something new and it just works! Good to hear that leggings have worked for you and I hope you are recovering well from your surgery.

nancy

Yeah! Sheerio for leggings! I love to wear them lately even a leopard print one!

Laurie

Leggings = wardrobe staple. Is there any woman that hasn’t tried them? There are some fabulous examples here of gorgeous women of all age groups showing how it’s done.

Sylvia, I love the diversity of this post showing so many lovely ladies doing leggings in their own particular way. We have become so used to this mainstay that I couldn’t imagine not having a pair to hand when I’m in a styling fix. I’m featuring leggings on my blog today but they’re styled in a bit more a flamboyant nature. Please do drop by and let me know what you think.

I have a question here: why wearing leggings when you can wear tights (opaque or not) or a nice pair of straight pants? I think leggings are not appealing as they always cutting the legs in an unsightly way. I might be considered as an awful old-fashioned or narrow-minded woman but to me, leggings are just ok inside a pair of boots or for sports occasion…

Elaine

Leggings are not my favorites. I find the proportions and silhouettes are hit or miss on my petite frame. Thicker fabrics work better and hide my knees which don’t look so great under lightweights. The ladies here look fabulous though! Lots of inspiration and I really admire The Style Crone.

Suzanne

I love this round up of legging fashion – some fun new inspiration to try with my favorite pant!!
