Ladies and gentlemen: let me introduce you to…the “Blue.”
Blue is an iconic part of American pop culture. It represents a certain kind of freedom, independence, and a “cool” factor. It is versatile, easy, and for all. It can be both casual and elegant. It travels across time and place.
If it were a group of music, it would probably be the Beatles: modern for their day and yet also timeless.
If it were a city, it would certainly be New York City: edgy and grungy and grumpy and so totally forward at any time in history.
And if it were a person? I bet it would be a curiously strange mix between Frida Kahlo and Elizabeth I: fearless.
What am I talking about?
But BLUE jeans…of course!
Blue jeans are one of those staples that must be in every person’s closet. Who doesn’t have a pair of jeans, by the way?
I bought my first pair when I was 12 years old. My mum had asked me to choose something to buy and I had set my mind on a pair of Levi’s. It was my first purchase and I wanted something that lasted. Hey, thinking long term can take you far!
To this day, my go-to outfit is a blazer, a white t-shirt, and a pair of jeans: boyfriend cut, skinny, high-waisted (which I adore!), both dark and light colors. Blue jeans are always a good idea to me, and they can last forever. You can neglect them, tarnish them, cut them, and roll them up and down. You can do pretty much anything you want to them and in them, and they will still be there, possibly being even more beautiful than when you first got them.
Now, let me tell you something: it’s not just any kind of jeans I love so much, you’ve got to find the real deal. You know what I mean? That ONE pair that will give you what you need in terms of comfort and fitting, that one pair that makes you feel invincible when you go out, and the best even when you run errands.
Your one pair: your choice, your style, your feeling at the top; you nailed it!
