sex and jeans

A pair of jeans is something you can wear to a formal event, club, to school or even to sleep in. There just another ordinary article of clothing that provides comfort and style. In Ewen’s article he mentions that back then Jeans was a form of way to bring forth change and to make a statement in society. In the past the Jeans had a great power in society where it was used to make a statement and rally public events. Even though it was a fashion statement back then also but Jeans served many purposes.

Jeans have just played a fashion statement in my life. Ive been rocking jeans every since I can remember from skinny jeans to wearing jeans that looked like bell bottoms. The fact that a pair of jeans can influuence how we want to look and how we want others to perceive us is amazing. Nowadays Jeans is worn by almost everyone its one of societies norms to own a pair of jeans no matter what style it is. When it comes to personal preference Ive always preffered skinny jeans on girls as it bring out all the curves on their body. Even though jeans dont play a political role nowadays as it did back then. It still plays a huge fashion role and how we view certian others. A personal event in my life in which jeans playeda huge role would be when I realized how comfortable skinny jeans were on your legs its like wearing nothing except you cant run as fast and whatnot. The best jeans for girls to wear is without a doubt tight jeans where the curves show its like every guy’s fantasy even though loose baggy jeans are not ‘in” anymore. A pair of jeans provides a great sex symbol in today’s culture as they define how sex and the media shapes our way of thinking and views of fashion


  1. I’d have to argue with your statement, that jeans is not a political act, and that they merely, “have just played a fashion statement in my life.” That jeans, “… can influuence how we want to look and how we want others to perceive us..” is quite political indeed. Can you see why?

    To expand a bit on Kelly’s point, I think even something like your preference for jeans that emphasize women’s curves is political in itself in that it speaks to and normalizes views that society has towards how women should dress even if it is doing so in such a subtle way that it may not seem political at first glance.
