Forever in blue jeans
by Bullet Blues
“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.”
–Yves Saint Laurent
“Jeans represent democracy in fashion.”
Blue jeans are as American as you can get. From grandmothers to teenagers–from cowboys to fashionistas, everybody wears blue jeans. Trends in jeans trickle up and trickle down. Haute couture, urban street style–fashion influences come from many sources, and even more so when it comes to denim. For something so classic, there’s a wide spectrum of blue jeans styles.
Jeans are traditional, outrageous, basic, decadent…there’s a jean out there for everyone. Dark denim, faded blues, bright colors and patterns. Bootcut legs, flares, skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans…jeans with rips, whiskers, rhinestones, over-dyes, acid washes. Jeans you freeze but never wash, jeans that are pressed, starched and dry cleaned…Jeans reflect your personalty and style.
How can something so basic and simple be the most important part of a person’s wardrobe?
“Blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola.”
