Denim clothing by decade: How to wear denim in your 50's


Tailored denim

There’s a baffling lack of denim in the fifty something’s wardrobe. Baffling simply because a good pair of jeans are a classic and serve stylish ladies well.

Jane Birkin never lost her style icon tag and is often seen in tailored jeans and a crisp white t-shirt or soft roll-neck jumper. Marianne Faithfull wears hers with a cashmere cardigan.

Of course, we’re not advocating the ripped, stonewashed, bejeweled sort favored by the washed-up country singer, but decent denims are the foundation of a wardrobe, much like a black dress or a sharp blazer.
