This is a continuation of a very different kinds of series on my interest in jeans. Make sure to read the other posts!
One of the most important decisions that you have to make very early on is the exact color for your jeans.
Why? Because it says a lot about you.
Whether they are black, blue, white, or even a number of other colors (any for that matter) it says a lot about your personality and the way that you represent yourself in public.
I, for one, appreciate the darker blue in my jeans and I think it’s a nice go-between from the super-casual and historical blue and not one of those super-fancy colors – it allows one to feel comfortable at any gathering, even at a semi-professional event with a button down shirt.
But I will rock the black occasionally as well. I don’t do this often and I have set pieces of clothing that work the best with black but I do love those jeans a lot.
One of the things to also consider in color is how it stops at times with what I call “breaks” and with “cuts.” I’m not sure what to call them really but I suppose the best word now that I think of it is simply “ripped.” I wonder why some like jeans that are already shredded and look extremely worn out.
Why they do that baffles me but I appreciate and accept the variety of different styles that exist. Each to his own, right? No judgement here, for sure!
But color matters. It matters because it has to match your shirt (or top) and it has to work well with your shoes, as we have already discussed in some detail.
The goal is to find the right color that works for you and that you’re able to wear in specific and non-specific environments.
It is also important to notice what types of colors are worn in the environments that you most hang out in. For example, if your co-workers always wear light blue then it’s possible that it’s best for you to wear light blue jeans as well.
You can make a volitional decision to “stand out” if you’d like but you naturally run the risk of being seen as a pariah. The choice, of course, is yours.
So, what is your favorite jean color to sport?
