Sometimes I regret buying into a buzzy new trend or uncomfortable-but-cute shoes, but jeans are the one purchase I never question (as long as they fit!). Practical, versatile, comfortable, and supremely easy to wear, jeans are the cornerstone of my closet and the item I reach for when I don’t want to think about my outfit. In other words, it’s never a bad time to invest in a new pair of jeans in my mind, and the celebrities below are making it even more tempting.
Celebrities over 40 overwhelmingly prefer timeless skinny or straight-leg jeans. (Yes, Jennifer Lopez also loves her low-rise baggy jeans, but we’ll call that an outlier.) Mindy Kaling owns Madewell jeans, while both Charlize Theron and Katie Holmes have J Brand blues in their closets. Kerry Washington is a fan of Good American, while Reese Witherspoon is often spotted wearing Mother jeans. But don’t take my word for it. Scroll down to shop over-40 celebs’ favorite jeans.
