Starting in the 1950s, jeans, originally designed for cowboys, became popular among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture. Historic brands include Levi’s, Lee, and Wrangler. The history of the denim is incredible and it’s amazing that this material and clothes are still so fashionable and loved.
Yes, denim is comfortable and very useful. It’s the kind of material that puts together women, children and men, everybody is wearing a pair of blue jeans today and all of us have something in denim in our closet. It could be a skirt, a pair of shorts, a dungaree or a dress, but yes, there are many different ways to wear denim and during the fall we will see a kind of denim explosion.
Jeans come in various fits, including skinny, tapered, straight, boot cut, Narrow bottom, Low waist, anti-fit and flare. The most popular right now are quite bright, loose and crop, which I think it’s a nice model to wear both in summer or fall. Beside the classic jeans we will wear also a lot of dungarees, midi skirts and dresses, blouses and jackets, not top to toe, but still a lot of pieces. Denim isn’t just for jeans – designers have made shirts, jackets and ties out of the blue stuff. And denims can be for every season, they never go out of fashion. Isn’t denim just the most amazing fabric out there? It’s versatile, it’s tough, it’s durable, it’s easy to work with, it’s fashionable, it’s warm, the list is endless!
In general, the secret is to vary the shades of denim worn at any one time. For example, shorts should be lighter than shirts, or vice versa. Mixing coloured denim with the original variety also works well: try grey with blue. Wearing a white T-shirt under a tailored denim jacket and with jeans looks effortlessly rebellious – think James Dean. Or, try wearing a denim shirt with chinos, topped off with a denim bag. And finally, while we’re on the subject of accessories, consider investing in a denim belt or pair of shoes. Don’t wear them both at the same time, however, and under no circumstances go all matchy-matchy and team either with a pair of jeans.
