Everyone has a pair of jeans. It could be that favorite pair you've had forever, or a brand new pair you just bought with Sunday newspaper coupons. But everyone has jeans they wear and love. They're comfortable, durable, and follow fashion trends as closely as women's shoes. Many offices now even allow jeans as part of their work wear, something that would have been unheard of when jeans began to be popular. In fact, during the 1950s, some restaurants and movie theaters refused to admit customers wearing jeans.
Jeans weren't always as fashionable as they are today. In fact, they were originally used as sturdy trousers worn by men and women in factories during World War II. In the 1950s, however, teenagers began wearing jeans as a form of rebellion against conformity, and by the 1970s, jeans were a staple of fashion wardrobes. They're available throughout the world, but typically, jeans are considered a part of American culture, like baseball and apple pie.
One of the major changes that has occurred in the jean industry is the change from standard trouser-style jeans worn by men and women prior to the 1950s. In the beginning, if you wanted to break in your jeans, you had to do it the old fashioned way, which either involved wearing them frequently for a long time, or dragging them on concrete and washing them frequently to make them look more worn.
The introduction of bell bottom jeans, for example, proved that jeans could be as much a fashion statement as a durable pair of pants. Now styles range from skin tight to large and baggy, available in every color imaginable. You can get jeans with embroidery, patches, rhinestones, or even brand new jeans that look as though they've been worn for twenty years. There are designers who specialize in jeans (besides Levi and Wranglers).
These changes have come thanks to the advances in clothing production. Jeans can be mass produced, and with the different machines and denim fabrics available, the only limit to jeans is the designers' imagination! In fact, the customer can become the designer, as well. You can take your favorite pair of jeans and customize them to your liking. Add embellishments, turn them into shorts, or grab some fabric pens and draw all over the fabric to turn them into a piece of art.
Because of the variety of jeans that are available, they can offer a professional looking alternative to dress pants in the office, particularly for women. There are even some dark washed jeans that can be mistaken for black dress pants! And since they are so popular, and can be more professional looking, offices are becoming more welcoming of jeans around the office, even if it isn't "casual Friday."
As far as jeans have come in almost seventy years, who knows what they'll look like seventy, fifty, or even twenty years from now? It could be that, as fashion develops, the jeans people wear years from now won't be recognized by the population as what we know as "jeans." For all we know, the evolution of jeans will continue, and they'll become the more formal wear, leaving "dress pants" hanging in boutiques and closets in favor of pants that started as simply sturdy work pants for factory workers.

Fashion has everything to do with being attractive. There are many things to know about the style you choose if you want to be fashionable and look good at the same time. These things include the colors you wear, clothing you choose, hair style, and more.
When you want to look good all of the time there are many things you need to know about being fashionable. Fashion doesn’t always come easy for some people but it really is easier than you might think. Here are a few things to consider when you want to look good all of the time, even if you are wearing a sweat suit.
The colors you choose need to match your skin tone and your hair if you want to look good. Blondes shouldn’t wear colors that make them look washed out and ill. Colors that may have this effect on a blonde with a very white skin tone would include a lime green, pastels, yellow, and even orange. A blonde can get away with these colors if her skin tone is very tan. Always make sure the colors you choose to wear go well with your skin tone and the color of your hair.
Another factor in trying to look good is your hair style. Many women often wear a hair style that really doesn’t suit them well. If you have a big forehead then you shouldn’t wear your hair all of the same length. This can make it look even bigger and even draw on the length of your face. Only people who have a small forehead can get by without wearing bangs. It is best for a long neck and forehead to wear bangs and possibly even a layered hair style. This will accentuate the face and show off your features better.
When you choose clothing it is important also so you can look good. The fashion styles you choose should be based on your body type. Don’t buy clothing because you have coupons and not pay attention to the style of the clothing. If you are overweight then you may not look very good in a pair of tight jeans. You should also not wear things that are too tight or that do not cover up your stomach. Relaxed clothing is best for someone who is overweight. Skinny jeans and tight clothing are designed for women who are really skinny and have the body to look good in them. Skirts and dresses need to be chosen wisely also. Be sure if you are overweight to wear a dress with a waist. This will make you look thinner.
There are many things to consider when you are trying to look good and be fashionable. Your style has everything to do with how good you are going to look. The best thing you can do when you want to look good is pay attention to the colors in your wardrobe, the type of clothing you normally wear, and your hairstyle. These are helpful tips that can help you look good all of the time.

There is a very well known saying “old is gold”. This is applicable for women too. The older a woman gets, the more wisdom and confidence she gains which makes her look more beautiful and mature. There is an inner light in her which makes her look radiant as the years pass by. No wonder, women and vintage wine is compared often!
With maturity, the fashion sense of a woman undergoes a sea change of maturity. They don’t just pick and chose what’s in vogue. Instead they choose clothes which look good on them. They choose clothes which are good and comfortable to wear but may not be completely trendy. However, there are many other women as well who completely give up fashion as they age. They look for clothes that may not be so good looking but are convenient. However, that should not be the case. Good clothes can defy age and even make you feel young. Here are some fashion tips which can help well built women who have crossed the half century of their lives.
• Remember, whatever you wear must fit you well. You should not look too trussed up or on the other hand too baggy. Wear clothes that enhance your strengths and hide your flaws. If you wear fitting clothes, make sure that they accentuate your curves and it doesn’t look as if you are spilling out of them. On the other hand, avoid looking like a tent simply because you are plus size and more endowed than the others. Choose the right size to make your body look good.
• Don’t go in for fussy prints and fussy fabrics since these will make you look bigger than what you actually are. Choose prints that enhance your curves rather than making them look bigger than what they are.
• Clean cuts and classic designs work well every where. Frills or fussy fabrics don’t really make you look good. They give you a childish appearance which looks weird. Instead, sticking to some classic designs and clean cuts can enhance your appearance and make you look chic and elegant.
• Avoid very short skirts or shorts. Don’t wear anything too short since it doesn’t look that good. If you have great legs, show them off with some style and panache instead of wearing minis and micros. Wear moderate length skirts rather than short skirts.
• With age, many body parts can turn flabby despite all the care and attention you may bestow on them. In such situations, you need to use under garments with proper support and grip. Arms tend to become flabby hence you should avoid exposure.
In today’s world, being a woman at 50 means that life has just started again. Most people call 50s as their second innings. Fashion at this age can really make you look elegant and stately. There are many options available. You can buy great designer clothes on discounts and with coupons. All you need to do is to watch out for such opportunities!
