Mutton is one of those words, like mumsy it ought to die a death and be gone! Set yourselves free from the dreaded M words ladies.
I don't like ripped jeans much myself but can see them (yes on a 40 something) looking great with decent black heels, a plain white tee and cropped blazer. I would be tempted to dress them up, gorgeous jewellery, etc....if you see what I mean.
Startail I didn't want the destroyed denim - it was just a bit of an impulse purchase as they didn't have the style in the non-destroyed denim that I wanted!
ToastedTeacakes you might not like the word mutton - but you obviously knew what I meant, so it served it's purpose . I don't even know what "Dunks" are, so hopefully I'm safe from that fashion faux pas!
I'm only a couple of years off 40 and I have the sexy boyfriend jean. They do have some destruction but not quite as much as those. Not online at the moment but I did get them last week in the sale for £10! I would wear those jeans aswell though.
I wouldn't wear them, but I'm now 52 and even though a young looking 52, I'd not be comfortable. Definitely would have 10 years ago. Though I like a bit less destruction. As other posters have said, I think a lot would depend on what you wore with them. If you had 6" studded stilletos and a racer-back vest with side boobage, then I'd probably say that was too young a look, but tastefully accessorised, I don't see why not.
