The still-youthful 40s

Buying jeans for your age and shape can be a dizzying experience. The Weekly's fashion team have road-tested the best styles to help you find the perfect pair despite your age and budget.

What suits your shape in your 40s?
"I like jeans to have a bit of a wider leg so my bottom doesn't look too big. Designer jeans usually don't work for me." Model, TV host and homewares designer Deborah Hutton, 46.
Stay smart and sophisticated with classic denim styles worn with crisp white shirts, structured jackets, a kitten heel or flats.
  • Wear mid-rise, boot-cut jeans. They're a universal classic that flatters most body shapes, especially pear-shaped and curvy figures. The slight flare at the bottom of the leg helps balance the body.
  • Wear hipsters or low-rise jeans.
