This fashion season, it’s all in the jeans

by Archives November 5, 2003

Can you remember a time when going out to a fancy dinner in a pair of jeans was unheard of? Perhaps you remember a time when jeans were reserved for rebels and social delinquents. Those times exist no more. Nowadays, you can go practically anywhere in a stylish pair of jeans.

Hot denims have become a must for every fashionable male and female. You can walk into any trendy nightclub and find people showing off their lovely denims. Even in a recent episode of the ultra-stylish Sex & the City, Miranda attended the opening of a new Manhattan club sporting a tight pair of jeans. If that is not enough to convince you that jeans are the hottest things on the market, pick up the November issue of Vogue magazine. The leaders of the fashion world have a ten-page spread devoted to the coolest new denims.

Walking around Concordia’s campuses, one can clearly see that its students love to wear their trusted jeans. However, there have been lots of changes to your old pair of slacks. For instance, there are hundreds of denim brands and prices out there to choose from. The Concordian has researched the latest and trendiest jeans for its readers.

We did not really dwell into the haute couture price ranges of designers like Gucci and Christian Dior because they roughly cost half of your tuition fees. But don’t get too comfortable yet. The new “it” jeans can actually set you back a few hundred dollars.

While visiting the StyleXchange boutique, the mecca of all things denim, in Les Cours Mont-Royal, merchandiser Leila Sabban explained a few things. Here is the verdict.

Who would pay this much for high-end indigo? Many people do. They see it as an investment. Jeans are seasonless. You can wear them any time of the year, and any time of the day. The same pair of posh denims can take you from school to the trendiest night spot. You just have to change your top and footwear, and you are ready to go.

If you have tried one of these costly jeans and loved how wonderful they look, especially from behind, you might want to check out ebay.ca. The online auction house sells many of these luxurious denims at a fraction of the price. That way, you can look great in your deluxe jeans without going over your student budget.

If, on the other hand, you refuse to pay over $80 for a nice pair of slacks, check out brands like Gap (mostly for guys) and Levi’s, which are still stylish and affordable. For all the girls out there, the closest thing to a Seven or Juicy jeans derriEre, try on a pair of fitted Parasuco jeans.

No matter what jeans you buy, make sure you purchase something that fits. Even if you do walk around in $200 jeans and they’re either too tight or too loose, you will look ridiculous. It’s not about how much you spend; it’s about how good you look.
