I'm I too old for gingham?
Ignore the red pug sock..I'm thinking with nice black sandals on a nice warm day ..

I'd wear them and I'm 39 grin

Your only as old as you feel right ;-)

You still a child my dear. I thought you were going to be a poster aged 60+. If you feel old at 32 there really is no hope for any of us almost twice your age.

They look good on you

ZilphasHatpin Thu 30-Mar-17 13:49:40

No they look great!

FrenchLavender Thu 30-Mar-17 13:51:03

Of course not. 32 isn't too old for anything. Except school uniform.

Too old for gingham?? Is that a thing now?

imjessie Thu 30-Mar-17 14:08:42

Are they leggings ? If so my only stipulation is that you shouldn't wear a shirt top with legging unless you are a child or at the gym but having said that you look great !

Not at all. Its the whole look and top/shoes that may make it punky teen or grown up kate moss/alexa chung cool.

Nope... you've got the legs for it so go right ahead

No way! I'm jealous of your legs btw!

They were listed as "treggings" which I think is a cross between trousers and leggings ??
Not sure
They are a thickish material and I would wear a too long enough to cover my bum.
I think just because the model wearing them was young 17/18 I thought will I look silly.
But I tried them on with a white long sleeve top and a nice necklace and I really like them

Don't be silly. I have something similar (Miss Selfridge IIRC) and I have over 10 years on you. Tend to wear with a loose black or white top that covers (most of) my bum.

I think you are too young for gingham!!

TowerRose Fri 31-Mar-17 20:38:03

I think they look fab! Love the pug sock by the way wink

ineedteanownotlater Fri 31-Mar-17 20:46:24
