You aren't too old but colored jeans are soooo over. If you didn't jump on that fashion trend last year then don't bother buying them now.

My grandma wears brightly colored jeans...I've seen her in lemon yellow, bright red, cobalt blue, and kelly green. She's very crisp and cute and perky, usually wears them with a crisp white blouse. She's 80, about 4'11, and adorable.

If you have to ask an opinion from a bunch of strangers on a public forum what is okay for you to wear on your body.........

seriously, you can't make up your own mind about what you like and want to wear?

If you don't follow "fashion trend" blah blah you don't have to worry about jumping on anything.

OR

If you are like me you don't care what every one else is wearing or thinks about what you are wearing and have yet at the age of 53 followed any "trend" and do what you want.........it's even better.

I am a big fan of wearing what you like. Trends don't follow the same timeline around the country anyway.

I've seen it a lot over the years. (colored jeans on 55+ women) Not sure why that would be a problem.

When I'm a senior, I plan on wearing whatever I want, wherever I want, totally without regard to current fashion. Why not?

Ankle length prairie dresses, socks with sandals, stretch pants with sweater tunics, giant church hats... I might even bring back the paisley vests over matching blouses everyone wore in the late '80s - they were kind of fun!

Go for it. Pick colors that work best on you.

One of my coworkers (60, +/- a couple) wore colored jeans the other day and looked awesome. So bright, fun and happy. I loved it!
