Why are we so obsessed with wearing jeans every were we go? Really? If I didn’t know better I could swear that jeans are a part of a universal uniform of course paired with a 5% spandex top that more often than not shows love handles, and a hearty muffin top.
I like jeans in the proper perspective.While riding a horse, working in the fields,and while digging a mine in the hills.
OK, I might be a bit off on when to wear jeans, however they have taken over our imaginations. It seems that most of us can only function if wearing a pair. At some companies they allow you to wear a pair of jeans if you donate to the company charity. The cost is minimum, ranging from $1-$5 depending on the company. Jeans were once reserved for casual Friday. It brings such excitement to my-coworkers that they rave over jean day in the break-room! As if it were prom night, and they were voted King and Queen.
I do not get it, Jeans do not look good on everyone. Or maybe they just chose the wrong style of jeans. They say there is a pair for everyone. You know, like a soul mate,or the right religion. Most women ,especially big women wear them too tight. Ouch, that has got to be painful. Very thin girls with flat behinds in tight jeans look a little like a headboard with pockets. Yikes!
I can always tell when someone is wearing cheap jeans or a better term might be low quality jeans. The jeans look dirty, and the fit is terrible no mater who is wearing them. The knee prints are the worst, and the wrinkles in the back of the knees. It’s as if you stood up and your jeans remained sitting. Low quality jeans rarely have spandex, which is the memory in the fabric. This way the material snaps back when active or sitting in the garment. Often I can see the white interior of the pockets when the person sits down. If you are going to make jeans a critical part of your wardrobe, then take your time and research the right fit.
Dark jeans are my favorite they are more formal than light-colored jeans. They look nice when the size and quality line up. Low rise jeans look very sexy on gals with nice firm bodies, young or old. Men look devious in dark jeans paired with a good belt, and a pressed shirt. Even men with a little extra snuggle in the mid-section can be redeemed in a good pair of jeans. Great posture and a nice pair of shoes. I tend to like a little drama on my jeans, embroidery, sparkle, and of course spandex. Be careful to not try to look like your teenage niece when wearing bling on your jeans. How much should a nice pair of jeans cost? Um, I could tell you where to find the Holly Grail with more certainty. That is on the individual, and the size of your ego.
Skinny jeans, I had to go there because the jean manufactures went there. I like the concept of the extreme slim cut of the jean. They can look rock star if the guy or gal is off the beaten path. This includes but not limited too a funky hair style, a bit of a reckless attitude. Not a felon with joint tattoos kind of attitude. Although that is another subject matter,and another blog. Skinny jeans are ment for thin people with small calves. In life there are some absolutes and when in doubt leave the skinny jeans for those who aren’t in doubt. White jeans are timeless, crisp, and chic. They always look amazing on a bright summer day. Be cautious to wear the right underwear with any white garment. The white jean is for any age and any size male or female. Invest in a pair and I dare you to keep them clean. Don’t let jeans rob you of your imagination, and creativity. Instead they can be a part of your sense of style along with your imagination.
