Denim is a seriously durable cotton fabrication, whose etymology stems from a woman knowing what she wanted (like most great inventions in history, JK, but maybe???) – a pair of pants strong enough for her husband to wear while chopping wood. A girls gotta stay warm, and if it just so happened that her man looked striking in the indigo dyed pant, fastened with copper rivets the tailor had laying around, why not?
The evolution to denim today, well, it’s come along way – colored, the advancement of stretch, re-purposed, chambrays – there is really no limit to the fabrication once deemed for workers. In the 21st century, we’re all workers, wearing denim so often, it’s become as ubiquitous to a wardrobe as Starbucks has to any corner in a major city, you would be hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t own multiple variations.
Denim is SO VERSATILE – its fitting at just about any moment. You can wear it from top to bottom, dress it up and dress it down. Denim may be the crowning achievement of the fashion industry – and of our closets! The possibilities are endless, and for spring – the thing to think about is embracing a bit of color, a pinch of eclecticism and a whole lot of diversity.
A pair of jeans with a slight edge – that white exterior zipper, worn with a blazer and sneakers screams the type of easy-cool street style girls emanate – and so can you. Really, just add a pair of optical lenses (potentially vanity) and you are set. You can never go wrong wearing it all together either, a Canadian tuxedo never looked so good.
How you wear it in the coming months is up to you – but it makes me wonder, is denim as big a part of your life as it is ours?
