"Blue jeans, white shirt…" is what Lana Del Rey sings on her track Blue Jeans and she’s not the only one to link the two together.
The synonymity of blue jeans and a white t-shirt suggests blue jeans are something run of the mill; everyday and average. But having a look in my own wardrobe, I’ve come to realize that blue jeans are anything but. Every pair of blue jeans that I own have some sort of distressing or patchwork design.
Sure, everyone knows that a good basic pair of denim is a wardrobe essential but there’s alway room for fun. The only denim that is left in it’s most basic state are the plethora of black denim that makes up about three quarters of my bottom options.
That’s not to say that I have anything against a straight-forward pair of blue jeans, but, and even Timm Gunn has expressed this, the right pair of jeans is the hardest thing to shop for. There are endless wash options, endless cuts and what seems to be an unnecessary amount of stitching details that finding a truly basic, but good pair of blue jeans may prove difficult.
Which leads into why I probably gravitate towards the more destroyed blue jean options. If it’s too difficult to find something that is right, find something that is wrong and make it right. I mean isn’t this the whole ideology behind what Miuccia Prada does?
