On the theme of 'too old to wear', what about a denim button through dress?

I quite fancy one but not really sure whether it would be a wardrobe staple or a mistake. Thinking dark denim, with black opaque tights and ankle boots or tan knee boots. I don't think I'd wear barelegged I just don't have the legs for it.
Keeper or future kondo?!

Length? Be aware that button through dresses are a PITA to sit down in because they suddenly reveal an extra 6 inches of leg/knicker. I've got a maxi one which I've been wearing for twenty wars and which they will have to prise from my liverspotted nonagenerian hands.

Years, not wars.

Just above knee, a line. I've managed to post twice, thought this thread hadn't worked, whoops!

Try it on and sit down in it before you decide.

Is yours short or long sleeved?

Jo Brand was wearing one in last week's episode of Damned. I think she wore it with black leggings and it really suited her and I wish I knew where she got it from as I'm the same size as her.

I have one, and I've never considered if I'm too old for it... I'm 26. It's long sleeved but thigh length, and I tend to wear it either with bare legs and sandals or coloured tights and tan boots.

I like it. It's flattering and warm.

I have a summer denim button through dress and I'm 49. It is v short when I sit down, right enough, so tends to be reserved for hot weather casual attire. Which basically means on holiday. I do like it though.

What do you think of this ?
Do you think it would look too bulky on all but tiny sizes?
