Should a 40 yr.old wear a jean mini-skirt?

I just scored a cute Calvin Klein skirt at the thrift store. Now I'm having second thoughts. Am I too old for this garment? I wouldn't wear it with heels, but probably flip flops in the summer. Still, I kind of forgot about being 40 when I bought it...

  • As long as you're not falling out of it in anyway ROCK IT! : )

    It may not be "age appropriate" you only live once so enjoy what you have right now.

  • eh, if you look good it's good. i like how you are going to dress it down though instead of trying to make it something really upscale since it is a jean skirt after all ya know. there's things that i wont wear bc i'm too big and i am 25, really clothes aren't an age thing, but mostly a body thing

  • If you are in shape, why not? Sounds good for the beach or park, go for it.

  • If you have varicose veins and/or cellulite then probalby not, but some women have awesome looking legs (not me lol) and can pull it off!

  • Oh I forgot to say... as long as you feel comfortable in it... because if you are comfortable you'll wear it better. If others judge, let them judge, no one can make you feel a way without your consent. So do what works for you.

  • Heck yeah!!! Yo go girl, rock that skirt. I will wear a denim mini into my 50's and 60's. Maybe even longer. It is a wardrobe basic now
