On impulse I bought some red leather look leggings from next a few months ago. At age 38, size 12 5ft 9 am I too old for these?

I’ve put them on a few times but not actually left the house with them on.

Planning to wear with a black over sized T-shirt and with black Chelsea boots or black trainers

Too old in whose opinion? I say wear what you like when you like! I would cut stone dead anyone who spouted ageist shite about anything worn by anyone - it’s just bullshit! Wear your leggings!

Wear them! Wear them! Wear them!

I think I’m having some sort of mid life crisis as totally questioning everything about myself at the moment 🙈

Nah you're fine! I'm 39 and last year wore pvc leggings on stage. Own it!! No doubt you look amazing!

Go for it!

I’m 38 have black leather look leggings from Karen Millen. I’ve worn them sooooo many times. They are my go to now lol

I don’t think it’s age, really. Are they your personal style?
Leather look leggings are not something I’d ever buy, especially red. Have you worn anything like them before?

I think they're hideous regardless of age but if you like them, wear them!

I'm 49, 5'9 and wear leather or leather look leggings at least once a week, including to work. I've travelled all over the world in them. It never even occurred to me that I might be too old.

Go for it OP! Wear them!

So theres not an age limit on leather leggings? How do you wash them?

Not too old at all. Wear what you bloody well like.

But don't do what one muppet I did did a few years back, which was come in from a night out and fall asleep on the brand new cream leather settee overnight in summer.

The excess dye came off my legs, eventually. But the brand fucking new settee? Nah.

Too old? I am 10 years older and live in coated jeggings at work, and I have ultra skinny leather look ones for evening.

I look fab in them grin

Can you post a link, ive seen ones in zara but they are cheap (£12/13) so i dont know if they are bad quality.

DantesInferno Thu 04-Apr-19 19:59:49

I bet you look awesome!

I've got exactly the same ones, in red and in black. I'm 47, and I wore them all over winter - sometimes with jumpers and boots, but also with a tight top and heels at parties.

Today I received my Cos real leather leggings in black that I splurged £250 on. They look bloody fabulous ... and I’m a week shy of 52, 5’8 and a size 12. I’ll be wearing them at any given opportunity wink

Bubba1234 Thu 04-Apr-19 20:05:23

Wear them! The outfit sounds so funky

VladmirsPoutine Thu 04-Apr-19 20:48:13

Never too old for anything. Except hot-pants which don't look good on anyone, any age, any size.

ShirleyPhallus Thu 04-Apr-19 20:50:17

They only look good if they’re thick enough you can’t see cellulite or camel toe

The Spanx ones are really fantastic

<waits someone posting the pic of Ross from Friends>

I'm really not a fan

User24856 Thu 04-Apr-19 20:57:56

I’m 37 and love my leather look leggings! I work bloody hard in the gym, I do heavy weight training (or did - but I’ll get back to it after my baby is born) so love high waisted tight fitting jeans that show off my bum 😁

Mine are black though, I don’t know if I’d be bold enough to wear red but you’ll be dressing hem down a bit with your black T-shirt, so go for it! 😁

CaptainButtock Thu 04-Apr-19 21:04:28

Love the sound of the outfit.

Bit jealous now..... aren’t they a bit sweaty/sticky to wear tho?

EngagedAgain Thu 04-Apr-19 21:04:33

If you like them that's all that matters, but you would be a brave woman to do the supermarket shop in them 😬 where are you planning on wearing them? They would be great for a night out.

50 wearing them with long grey jumper (still snowy in Sweden). 38 is still a baby
