Elastic Pants/Pull on Pants for Women Over 50

The older I get, the more I value comfort! That doesn’t mean I want to look sloppy or live in my pajamas! Elastic waist or pull-on pants have a lot of advantages. They are comfortable, as I already mentioned, but they are also easy to put on. No hard buttons to snap or fasten! Both of those are good reasons to buy pull-on pants, but I wouldn’t blog about them unless they had one more attribute – they are fashionable! Or at least the ones I’m sharing. That’s right – today, I’m bringing you the best pull-on pants for women over 50!

I recently styled this outfit in my Brand To Try: Spartina 449 post, but I didn’t mention the details of what I was wearing. I love the elastic-waist pull-on wide-leg linen pants in Sea Moss (I call them Olive). They have a relaxed and comfortable look to them, pockets, and are available in a couple of other colors.

I paired them with a Square Neck Tank. Square neck tops are trending this year, so you’ll look youthful and stylish in this top. You can wear it alone in this scorching hot weather or layer it under a lightweight top.

Where are my gurls who love silky, statement styles? These Silky-Soft Full-Leg Crops are made just for YOU! They look great and feel like you are wearing pajamas because they have an elasticized waist. Lol! I call that a win-win!

The Sleeveless Button-Front Top is so soft and comfortable. It has a relaxed fit, so you don’t have to worry about your lumps and bumps showing or it clinging to you. It is 60% cotton and 40% Tencel™ modal knit and machine washable.

Travelers™ Collection Burnout Poncho (S/M) | Travelers Classic Side Slit Tank  (Size 1) | Travelers Classic No Tummy Pants (Size 1) | T-Strap Sandals (9.5) | Gold-Tone Circle Earrings | Convertible Shell Pendant Necklace

The Travelers Classic No Tummy Pants are comfortable enough to sit for hours in a car or plane without any issues. They are stretchy and are pull-on styling with an elastic waist. The No Tummy Pants have small darts in the front to keep from having puckers and gathering issues. I’m wearing my usual size 1, and they fit me perfectly.

I adore the Travelers™ Collection Burnout Poncho!!! It is gorgeous but sheer, so I added the Travelers Classic Side Slit Tank underneath. The poncho has sequins and a shimmery fabric, and the print is bold and makes a huge statement. This is the perfect outfit if you want to shine but in an elegant and subdued way. I’m wearing a S/M in the poncho and a size 1 in the tank.

    Pull on pants are the only pants I wear!

  2. Pam Sande says:

    I get inspiration from the outfits that you show in your shopping blogs, making me get more use from my wardrobe items and purchasing some items to complete outfits! Thank you!

  3. Is there a link to the belt in the first picture with the green pants? Thanks

    1. Dee, that particular belt is an old one, I think I got it from Loft.

  4. My feelings about pull on or elastic waist pants is changing….I don’t care what other women wear but they have always been a big no for me. Maybe because there are choices that don’t have that ‘gathered’ look around the waist. Fine on a toddler but not for me. But a few of these have changed my mind. The pair in the first picture for sure. How wide is the belt you are wearing and did I miss a link to that belt? Belts are an issue with me, probably because I’m more a straight figure rather than curves. Thanks.

  5. I only have one black pair of pull-on pants and I like them. I don’t know why I don’t have more!! These are cute!!

  6. Beautiful deer, nothing wrong with being comfortable with these clothes

  7. Great pants and shorts. Another plus is that sometime the buttons and zippers ruin a good nail polish.

  8. Joan Bullington says:

    Love the white linen pants and the boyfriend jeans!! The drive way looks good. Hope it’s not slippery!!

  9. Karen Daniel says:

    My favorite pull on pants are from Blair! Flat front bootcut jeans that come in regular and petite. I have the light denim, white and black and they are the best!

  10. The linen ones are really comfy and cute.

  11. Tina Holley says:

    Love the styles. Bet they are comfortable. Will have to try some.

  12. love elastic waist pants!

  13. Roberta Schwandner says:

    The older I get the more I like elastic pants.

  14. I like the pull up pants and shorts. They are a put of my wardrobe.

  15. I LOVE PULL ON PANTS (shorts, jeans, skirts, etc)!!!!!!! I don’t like feeling constricted on my waist, so having an elastic waist is perfect. It always gives and flexes, which makes me feel more comfortable. And I never feel frumpy, because I always get stylish elastic waist bottoms and wear feminine tops. Win win! 🙂

  16. Jenniffer Groski says:

    I love a good pull on pant that isn’t sloppy or look like pjs. Going to check out several of these styles.

  17. Ginger Hiller says:

    Your driveway is looking so good! Much better than the pan with cooked eggs in it. Larry knows to spray everything with the Dawn Powerwash or he’ll have the wrath of Momma Moose to deal with. I LOVE pull on pants for many reasons. A you’re right, there are some very nice and fashionable styles available now. I have several pairs of pull on linen blend pants from Old Navy that are so comfortable. The Pretty Garden knit short sets on Amazon have an elastic waist and the comfort of them is out of the park. I hope that y’all are staying cool.

  18. I love pull-on pants!!!

  19. It all depends on the style if they are frumpy or not

  20. I think the majority of my pants are pull ons! The comfort and ease of getting on is a win-win for me.

  21. Teresa Cleland says:

    I purchased the Travelers Classic No Tummy Pants from Chico’s and although, I like them, do not be fooled by the name. There is nothing about these pants that helps to have no tummy. No panel, nothing.

    1. I think the reason they call them that is because it is a flat front. No pleats or details to draw attention to the tummy area.

  22. Roeli Lutz (Canadian) says:

    I love the high waisted pull on pants, covers/hold my tummy
    roll flat…lol

  23. Thank You for showing fashions for those of us who are 50 and over.And that we can still look great..

  24. I wear pull on pants or shorts at home all the time. I have a few pull on ones that are linen and other fabrics that I wear when I go out. You’re right pull on pants don’t have to be frumpy. I think it depends how they are styled too.

  25. Elastic waist pants are so much more comfortable than pants with zippers or buttons. I love to wear them when I am doing chores around the house and am bending and doing heavy

  26. Hi Tania,
    I’ve had very good luck with JJill pull on pants for length and comfort. Since I’m petite, they fit where they should, and the waistband does not curl, which is an important feature for comfort!

    1. love elastic waist pants!

  27. Still have a few VB bags and love how you paired them together.

  28. The silky pants look beautiful and sound so comfy!

  29. Great choices.

    Pants are certainly more stylish than they used to be. I have several pairs they are very comfortable and work great with my tops

  33. Nice to know there’s stylish options because who wants to look frumpy? Not me!
    Wow! The driveway is going to look great! Let us know if it’s slippery when it rains.

  34. I love pull on linen pants. They are my go to in the summer!

    I keep watching the Talbot’s sales. I have my eye on the v neck white sweater and a pair of linen pants.

  35. Linda Shearer says:

    Your driveway looks really good I wish my husband would do that. Never thought about it being slick though when it rains.

    Thank You for this selection . of pull on pants. I really love pull on jeans for comfort!

  36. I have a few of the pull-on styles from Talbots but maybe my favorite are the airy gauze pair in blue iris….I have the button-up shirt in the same color and wear it tied at the waist as a set. I get lots of compliments every time I wear it. They are very comfortable as well!
