Ugg boots on a 50 year old???

CaroleOH

OK, I personally think Ugg's are cute. I like they way they look on tiny teenage girls with leggings or skinny jeans tucked into them.

I don't wear leggings or skinny jeans because I think I look ridiculous in them. So, here's my drama. My son bought me a pair of Ugg boots for Christmas - they're the shorter ones with the one button on the side. He thought I could wear them to my son's hockey games etc. I do love my Ugg slippers that I wear around the house.

Anyways, one of my pet peeves is women who wear things that are way too young for them. I have them on now with my boot cut jeans - not tucked in and they are very comfy, not the most stylish look but ok.

Should I keep them or return them? I figure he could use the money back on his credit card for something else! But am on the fence as to whether I should just keep them and wear them and being self conscious that I look odd in them.

OK I'm rambling, but I think you get the jist! What do you think???

I don't like seeing older women wearing short-shorts or other articles of clothing that are skimpy and best left to someone younger with a more taut body, but boots? Heck yes you can still wear Uggs at 50 (and beyond!)! Yours sound darling and if they're comfy and you like 'em, why not?

I'm 49 and wearing these today, with my skinny jean leggings and a longish, floaty top. These boots aren't Uggs, but they are funky. And I love 'em (and have received a number of compliments!) :-D

I gave my Uggs to my daughter. They were not me. Had nothing to do with my age. If you can make them work, go for it. I think you are lucky to get a gift like that for Christmas. Personally, I think you should try them tucked. I wear boots all the time. I wear them with tights, dresses and a version of skinny jeans.

I wear Uggs a lot as it gets cold here. I think they look cute with boot cut jeans, not tucked. My figure isn't quite cut out for jeans that are tight and more "tuck able". I'm 46 and I would wear them with a cute skirt or dress, but not the super short ones the younger chickies wear.

Yes! Wear them! :) And if you can find a nice pair of straight leg jeans, or if your boots are tall enough to tuck your boot cut ones in, try them that way, too! I have an ankle height snow/ apres-ski boot I got a major score on from....ack...Sierra Trading Post. (Sorry, mental pause moment.) My boot cuts are kind of slim till the very bottom so I just do a little fold of the fabric and tuck in, because I don't like snow and slush on my hems. Works for me and in these particular boots of mine wearing jeans on the outside wouldn't look right.

I agree with Jen. I personally feel we don't have to settle for frump as we age, there are ways to make things work. ;)

And if you really like them and keep them, it will probably make your son get far more pleasure seeing his gift on mom's feet than having the credit back on his card.

Absolutely!

I am 51 and have been looking for a pair of Uggs but don't want to spend that kind of money so haven't bought them yet. And, I would totally wear them with my skinny jeans!

I'm older than you and I wear boots with jeans or leggings - it's about working the basic look into one appropriate for your age, shape and fitness level.

JEN!!! I wear a 6-1/2 or 7 - can I borrow those??!! Love them - spill.

I have been debating a similar issue- ankle boots and skirts. At what age is that too young a look? I love that look, btw.
I have decided anything older than me is too old to wear it, so, I'll always be fine!
Love those boots , Jen!

Here is a pair I am considering getting to wear with skirts.

My pet peeve tends to go the other way, women who look way older than they should. You don't have to show skin to wear youthful styles so I would definitly wear the Uggs and more.

Bumble, cute boots. I think you should go a little taller if you are planning to wear them with skirts.

I am 5'4" so the really tall boots just don't work for me but I am a sucker for the 12" high boots. I think the shorter boots are designed for pants but I'd love other opinions.

Sierra Trading Post. I bought a duplicate pair of beloved jeans I paid $65. for for $13. each right before Christmas. Bought some for me, my niece and my DD. They love them. Score! Amazing that a single style of jeans can look great on all ages.

No, that's the "look" I am questioning golddust. Ankle boots worn with skirts and those aren't real ankle boots either. I have tons of tall boots but not ankle boots to wear with skirts. I do have some ankle boots meant to be worn under pants though.

If you like them wear them! I have a friend who is 53 and wears all the latest styles with confidence. She looks fantastic!

Auntjen - please tell me more about those boots (brand, style, etc.). I want a pair!

caroloh,
As long as you're not wearing a button that sez something like 'Kiss me I'm 50', no one will know you age. If you like the boots, wear 'em.

You should also consider, would it hurt your son's feelings if you tried to return them? Be flattered, he thinks you're young enough to wear them!

I live in ankle boots all winter. I don't ever tuck things in for 2 reasons. One, I only wear boot cut pants and they fit over boots, hence their name. And two, I have short legs so the last thing I want is to interrupt the (short)line I have going.

I bought these this year (from Nordstrom's on sale, half the price of Zappos and free shipping). I love them and find them to be incredibly comfortable.

I agree that you should absolutely wear them and look into some slim (they don't have to be skinny) jeans to tuck into them. With a long sweater it's a great look for those of us who are a bit more grown up. I am wearing skinny black pants tucke into gray knee high boots with a longish chunky knit sweather.

And Jen, you can't simply post a picture of such fabulous boots without a link to let us know where to buy them!!

i too wear ugg type boots with leggings or jeans (but, most of my jeans are a more narrow leg-i'm not crazy about the flared jeans...)--i don't think of uggs as being particularly young looking...just comfy!

i personally think a short boot with a heel would look better with a skirt than the ones you picture, bumblebeez...(i can see auntjen's with a skirt...)

There are many styles of Uggs now. Maybe you can find an Ugg boot that is different from the traditional Uggs boot. That being said, I am 63 and love my Ugg boots. I don't feel that I am too old for them at all.

I don't care for ugg boots in general so I can't give a fair answer to your question LOL.

I do take notice of women dressing too youthful for their age (and too old/dumpy for their age too). It's a fine line to look stylish but not like you are trying to stay forever 29 or on the other hand, look like your granny.

I work on a college campus and try not to wear the same things the "kids" wear. LOL I figure that's a good guideline. If a 20 year old is wearing it, it's probably a bit youthful for me (not speaking of classic pieces, more trendy pieces). I personally feel like the real skinny jeans and leggings are too youthful looking for me. I'm 50 myself. I am not a fan of the true "skinny" jeans except on the youngsters. I do like a narrow jean. It all depends too on what you wear with the skinnies or leggings.

Those are cute boots Bumble, but I would not wear them with skirts.

I agree with dlm about the look working with your age, body type, etc. Some can make it work, some just look like they are trying (too hard) to look youthful. I would never be accused of dressing older than I am, but I also don't want to look like one of the students (LOL although I remember the days when I was confused with the students!).

They don't have Jen's boots in my size.

BTW, I would wear UGG boots, but they really are not attractive for large feet like mine.

I have to echo what vickij stated. I'm also 63 yrs young
and love my Uggs ("Brooks" short leather & suede in black)
and my black suede "coquette" style slippers...BTW, I wear
size 9.5/10...so, no petite feet here!

I scored some great boots yesterday. There is this building across the street from my office in NYC that is a catering hall type place. Once a year they have this gigantic shoe clearance sale. Went yesterday and got these boots for $89. Had never heard of brand (Morenatom) before but when I got back to my office, I googled them. Retails for $330! Sweet!

I also love Jen's boots, but I cannot wear heels anymore. Recently tried to wear a pair of ankle boots I have that have a pretty small heel to work. By the time I got home, I wanted to cry! I commute on bus and walk from bus station to office in NYC. My feet were killing me!

I love bumblebees boots. What would you wear them with? The pretty uppers would be hidden under bootleg jeans.

I would wear them with floral summer skirts in spring, tights and sweater dresses or casual skirts in fall winter. And skinny jeans, long cardigans, that type of thing.
I like the way they have that rugged edge yet the floral laser cut flowers soften and feminize.

I haven't bought them yet, they're kinda pricey and I'm, still on the fence. I don't NEED them, haha

Those are great boots, Jill! And such a good deal.

Ik, they are Bootheel brand jeans. Stretchy and comfie like sweat pants. You need to wear a belt with them but they are flattering and don't shrink. Don't buy up a size. In fact, I went down a size.

actually, b, they might look nice with tights and a chunky (maybe belted) sweater dress! and maybe a long casual skirt...mid calf or so...they'd be great with skinny jeans and sweaters!
i still can't picture with lightweight or springy looking skirts or anything too short...but, then again, who knows-i'm no fashionista!

If you're on the thin side and tall enough to pull off wearing a narrow leg jean, I say go for it. What I've seen lately, and makes me cringe, are women who are 50 plus, carrying a bit of extra weight and wearing narrow legged jeans tucked into a pair of Uggs. I don't think it is a very flattering look.

It's not so much the age as the body style. IMO you need to be pretty tall and thin to pull off the chunky look of Ugg boots regardless if they are shorter or taller.

I love Uggs. I don't own boots, but rather, a few pair of the Ugg mocs/driving shoe. Love them since the young girls aren't wearing them so there's no question of whether I am wearing something that is too young for me. Also, I'm only 5'7", so for me, either height isn't an option.

So, if you're in great shape (thin) and on the taller side, I say go for it.

I am probably in the minority, but I don't think low boots and skirts work very well together. If I want to wear something other than a higher cut boot (like a riding boot), I will opt for a pair of flats with opaque black tights when wearing a winter skirt.

Jen, cute boots.

Bumble, very cute boots, where did you find them? I prefer low to no heels also. My first thought was that they would look great with a sweater dress or denim and then I found this outfit with ankle boots (on a mature woman!)at soft surroundings:

I was just getting ready to post the Zappos link, but I see dlm handled that for me! ;-D The heels on these "Not Rated" boots are a little taller than what I'm used to, but they are extremely comfortable.

Speaking of comfort, I'll be taking these to England with me again in a couple of months. I bought them for my trip there last year and they were just wonderful - like walking on a cloud! They're cute worn with jeans (untucked) or leggings (tucked), and even look really good with longish skirts. I can't say enough good things about these boots. They're definitely faves of mine!

I don't think its so much age that is in question as much as if they look good on you. If you feel comfy in them, you should just keep them.

The other thought that comes to mind is they were a gift from your son, and I can only assume he was really stoked about finding such a cool gift for his Mom. How great is it that HE feels they are appropriate for you.

My mother used to return the gifts I'd get her with the excuse that I should just keep my money. I'd put a lot of thought and care in trying to find the perfect "whatever" and her responses would really hurt my feelings. I also resented that she felt I was too much of a pauper to be able to afford something nice. That's why I never return the gifts my daughter gets me. No matter what I will find a way to use them whether they are in my taste or not.

Very nice, Kelly and just about what I had in mind. And sort of a modified Sundance catalog look too, though not quite so frilly.

I can't tell anyone where they are yet, not at least until I decide to get them or not. There is only one left in my size and they are an obscure brand that I've never heard of before.

How great that you get to go back to England Jen. Are you going in the fall? Summer?

I agree with you, work, about the tall and thin, two things I am, and that's kinda nice, but I skip heels because of it. I don't like being an amazon. I do see women a little too plump to wear skinny jeans and for some reason it doesn't stop them! Why, I can't figure out, maybe they are much more self assured than me.

Love all the responses, and I hadn't thought about his feelings being hurt by my returning them. I think I'll keep them.

At first I think I'll wear them untucked, but might be persuaded to get a straight leg pair of pants to bum around in and to wear with my uggs.

Thanks everyone. I like being able to run something like this by my cyber friends! I feel I'll get a more truthful response than asking some of my IRL friends who might just say what's the nice thing but not what they're really thinking in order not to hurt my feelings!

I like that pic Kelly! I'm not a boot person to start with - I like the look on others but I am way too warm natured and do not like my feet so covered up. I wear boots only a few times a year LOL. Definitely not in spring.

Yes, I agree about the extra weight and skinny jeans. My sis is 48 and my BIL told her he thought leggings were fine as long as she wore a top that covered her crotch. LOL He said it kills him how some wear them so tight in the crotch area.

Bumblebeez, we'll be visiting Cornwall and Devon in March. I can hardly wait! :-)

Tina, your BIL's comment is too funny! I tend to agree with him. I have several pairs of "jeggings" and always feel like I have to wear a top long enough to cover that area, because otherwise, it's just entirely TMI.
