Holes and more holes are all over the most popular garment in the world – our jeans. And the way things are going, one day there will only be little bits of fabric holding the holes together.
Years ago this look caught on and then faded away but now it is back with a vengeance. From designers to mass market brands, jeans are full of tears and holes and the biggest rips get the highest prices – which makes me wonder – if I wanted to wear ripped jeans why could I not rip them myself and save some money?
But being over 60 ripped jeans won’t do anything for me. The appeal the young find in the holes – I think it is sex appeal – might give the wrong image for us more mature women.
While my friend Marie, well over 60, was visiting me, she wore a pair of ripped and torn jeans. At one moment during the evening Betty, another friend took me aside and asked with empathy in her voice, “Doesn’t Marie own a decent pair of jeans? These look so sloppy.”
Jeans are here to stay. If you are a child or 100 years old. but the fads applied to them might not be something to follow after 60.
And Never forget – A Smile changes Everything!
