Unraveling Our Jeans

Fashion has always been evolving and revolutionizing throughout the years. It is influenced by the culture in its society and by the media. In the Ewen’s text, The Ends Justify the Jeans, they talked about a specific type of clothing made by denim fabric call jeans. Jeans has been around since the late 1800’s and they were originally designed for cowboys and but now they are worn by people of all ages, race and gender.

In today’s society, I mostly see jeans worn as casual wear however, some people say jeans can also be made chic depending on the wash of the it and what is being worn with it. Designers from all over the world have made jeans very versatile to fit the shape of men, women and children.

However, jeans worn today in society is very different from the way it was 10 years ago. More women are moving away from the flared jeans, popular in the 90’s to bringing back skinny jeans, popular in the 1950‘s. Males too are changing the ways they wear their pants. Young men nowadays, are also wearing skinny jeans. Skinny jeans apparently worn to symbolize the act of rebellion in the 1950’s which also can be translated to today’s time. I think fashion is always constantly changing by the influences of the media.
