Do "skinny jeans" look silly on a 40+ year-old?

I realize I may have lost perspective so I am asking the advice of you fashion-conscious folks...
I am now 41, have kids and spend most of the time with them at the park, pool etc. I want to look nice, stylish, but not tacky or like I'm trying to be a teenager again. Are those "skinny jeans" okay for me? Should I concentrate more on dress pants and skirts and bouses than jeans and tee-shirts?
I have an okay figure, and I like the feeling of the spandexy pants but I do feel they're a little more suggestive than the jeans we wore ("back in the day...").
Thanks for your help!
