The Genes or the Jeans? - Ellen Dolgen

The Genes or the Jeans?

J Brand is my brand

Is your sense of style in the jeans or the genes?

I am a menopausal 57-year old and my daughter is a stunning single 30 year old. We love to do lunch, shop and shmirshky talk.   More often than not, we find ourselves showing up for lunch in the same outfit.  My mother, who is now 90, always dresses fabulous, but we have never ever dressed similar.

So is your fashion taste a function of your genes or your jeans?

I show up to lunch with my daughter wearing skinny jeans – my fav are J Brand or 7 for all Mankind ( @7FAM ) stretchy. No Mom jeans for me (or Tina Fey) thank you very much! I have black boots, a white t-shirt, and a scarf – love that look. My daughter is wearing the same thing, except I throw on a blazer to cover the huge muffin top that is ever flowing over my skinny jeans – works great!

Whether you like low rise, boot-cut, stonewashed, flare, distressed, straight or skinny, I think it is all about the jeans and not the genes. There are no age requirements for great style!
