I no longer wear any lower rise jeans at all. I mean anything with a front rise of under ten inches is out completely. High rise is so much more flattering, and makes legs look much better. They are just far more classy. As a general rule I agree with your suggestions however! I look forward to seeing you outfits with skinny jeans. Would certainly have that in my closet if I lived in a colder country…. If I had to pick just one item to wear for the rest of my life it would be jeans.
I have them at every price point but like them all equally. I do follow most of your guidelines — no light washes though I do wear white jeans for 3 months of the year , no muffin top or bare tummy. I am not one of those people who wear jeans everywhere — I do not wear them to parties and our country club has a complete ban on them, but I am confortable and happy in my jeans.
Jeans are just too hot here…. Like Suzanne I love jeans, too! I have skinnies, straight, bootcut and flares, but so far I stick with blues and blacks. Red jeans are very much on trend right now. A late comment from me who has 9 pairs of jeans wearing them very often. They used to be flared and, unfortunately, low rise, so problems with love handles. I used to wear wider, longer tops until I discovered shape wear.
No love handles and…. I have to confess that I do wear cropped jeans. Very tempting when you have good legs and you want to show them off. I will take a good long look at myself one more time to see whether it is wise.
Cropped pants and jeans are still very much in style and you will be able to pull those off. I tend to find jeans that fit and look good and then buy 5 pairs. Maybe I should branch out? I would try other pant styles or other colours as well. You are right that more tapered jeans put more emphasis on the hips.

It also depends upon looks. Actually, baggy jeans are not bad at all as long as they are worn smart according to the fit and to the wearer….
Sharon Stone looks great in baggy jeans and she is 54 years old. Teri Hatcher is 47 years old and looks awesome in ripped jeans. But then again, not all middle aged women are in good shape. Bottomline though is that, a FIT woman can look good in anything as long as it is worn with some minor but important changes.

In any case no matter what you wear, if you wear it with confidence, you will pull it off and look good!
I am 41 and in good shape but they still worry me! Crew, hopefully they work! Otherwise I like my slim boyfriend jeans. They are very high waisted super comfortable jeans. The fit tends to be a bit baggy. They usually look very unflattering.
Do you have to belt jeans? Both belted and unbelted can look great. It all depends on your body type and figure priorities. I no longer wear really distressed, but stone washed, why?
