What's the general opinion on skinny jeans and knee high boots for a woman approaching 40?
Depends on the boots I suppose - I can't stand kneehighs with a high stilleto heel on anyone but my Mum (58 and a size 8/10) looks really good in her skinnies and her various long boots with 'sensible', iyswim, heel.
Think you should go for it! I love wearing skinny jeans (or my lovely new skinny cords) with flat boots. It's warm, practical, fashionable, and effortleesly sexy with heeled boots I'd feel like I was trying too hard though
Wrong side of 40 and still think I look good in Gap skinny jeans and knee-high (almost) flat boots. Size 10 - 12. The fashion police are alive and well and living in my house. They are on my case and will be sure to arrest me for any muttonisms - so far, so good.
