Nothing can beat a good casual look that includes only a pair of jeans and a white T-shirt. Over the years we have witnessed the transformation of jeans and we have seen different colours, different shapes and different lengths.
While we were looking towards the future, mom jeans came back right under our noses, stores were filled with them and women wanted to have at least a pair. What was all this fuss about a pair of jeans? What was so special about them?
Many might say they are a memory of the 80s and people want to be part of it, others might think they are comfortable and everyone can rock them, no matter the size, weight, and body shape.
When we talk about jeans, Marilyn Monroe comes through our mind. She is considered to be one of the first to give a feminine look to the jeans (a garment previously intended for the working class only, but its perception changed over the years).
The 60s saw the rise of the “Drainpipe Jeans” or the skinny jeans that became famous thanks to Audrey Hepburn.
When referring to the 70s, Cher is absolutely the style icon of those years. The Swedish pop group, ABBA, were also quite a sensation and their style was simply amazing. The 70s saw the rise of the Bell Bottom Jeans or better known as Flare Jeans. Everyone was wearing them, from women to men and they were perfectly matched with a top.
The 80s were a bit different. Mom jeans were not the only popular type of jeans. Every type was famous as long as it stayed loose in the body.
Grunge style almost dominated the 90s. Bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam had so much popularity. You could see people wearing jeans in darker colour and ripped jeans were the most popular. You could perfectly wear them with a pair of Dr. Martens or a pair of Converse sneakers, you name it.
The early 2000s saw the rise of the most wanted and hated trend at the same time, the low-cut jeans. You could see Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Pink, Britney Spears and many more going in public in the craziest low-cut jeans ever. How on earth were they able to rock this trend?
The 2010s was completely different from the early 2000s. Skinny jeans became very popular and everyone was wearing them (men as well).
But as fashion is looking towards the future, it seems like every trend in jeans is experiencing some king of a rotation where the past has an important impact. In recent years we have noticed that every trend in jeans was inspired from the past.
