Can you wear denim shorts after 40?
The rules for fashion are outdated and like a good rules are they are meanto to be broken. Denim shorts can be worn over 40 if they look good on you. If you have great legs there is no reason you shouldn't flaunt them. To make them more 'age' appropiate it is all about the cut and how you style it.
How to Wear:
Length it needs to be longer to keep them from looking trashy.
The Cut should be loose and relaxed think boyfriend cut
Size go at least one size too big, I go 2 sizes. You don't want them to create a muffin top.
Color can be dark or light rinse but stay away from colored denim shorts or they will look like they belong to your daughter
Stay away from overly distressed its another look that is better for teenagers
Style it with a white button down shirt and heels or loafers to give them a more grown up look
TIP: The trick to wearing these 'not after 30' pieces is to style it with more 'age appropriate' pieces. You want to make it look 'all grown up' to do that you can't wear any more than one item that is 'ify'.

Mix Casual with dressier pieces
In the 90's this was my uniform This will age you
Muffin Top is not a good look on ANYONE!! They are too tight and make you look heavier than you actually are
