I love shopping for jeans. Love. It. There are so many kinds to chose from! Ankle jeans, boyfriend jeans, colored jeans, bling jeans, whiskers jeans… There is a type for every body and every personality.
Jeans are the most American clothing item in existence. Approximately 450 million pairs of jeans are sold in the United States every year. Back in the day, even though sailers had been wearing bell bottom pants for years, denim was permitted for use in the U.S. Navy beginning in 1901. Bell bottom’s wide legs allowed sailers to roll their pants up above the knee when washing ship decks. Now the bell bottom look has spread and in the 1970′s was all the rage. Eventually the style morphed into today’s Flare Legged jeans. Cute as all get out.
Jeans have continued to evolve through the years. They used to be called waist overalls. They used to be worn only by men. But now, jeans aren’t just for Americans or just for men anymore. Now, with the exception of some South Asia rural areas, people all over the world are shopping for jeans. And wearing them with style, pride and comfort.
Shopping for jeans can be a hassle for people who don’t know what kind of jeans works for their body type. For example, curvy, hourglass type ladies should steer clear of skinny jeans and stick with straight legged jeans for women. Another challenge when shopping for jeans is not knowing where to wear them. When shopping for jeans the trick is to keep in mind they can be worn almost anywhere. Jeans can be dressed up with a fancy top for a night out, dressed down for a day at home and the right jeans can even be made to look professional for a casual office setting.
Now, it is time for you to go jeans shopping.
