i am the same size/age as you but i can't wear them.
too short at 5ft 3, my thighs are too big. Depends on your height i would say, and build ( i am a pearshape/hourglass). I put a pair of those coloured skinnies on and they looked awful on me, just like 'here are my legs everyone' I like to wear vest tops, and little cardies so unless i wore them with something about knee there would be too much glare on the thigh area.
I used to wear boyfriend jeans, but have lost weight (12 on top) and now wear skinny boot cuts.
The only time i wear anything tight on my legs, is black leggings, with black boots.
