Twenty Things I Liked in Twenty-Twelve
There’s nothing I adore like a trend-killer, and that’s why Pajama Jeans make me smile!
Yes, Pajama Jeans have been around for a while, but now that both overpriced, over-decorated jeans and leggings/jeggings/meggings have reached critical mass, I’ve fallen in love with the ” As Seen on TV” product because it reminds us all how tired jeans are in 2012. The ubiquity of hideous denim nowadays takes me back to the designer jean era ca. 1981 when the industry began to collapse on itself. Back then, the people who set the trends were trading in their Calvins for the most nondescript denim of all: Levis 501s.
I don’t really care if utilitarian denim makes a comeback to thwart the current trends. In fact, I’d rather see something else come into style, like those baggy, highly-tailored Marithé et François Girbaud jeans from the eighties. Anything would be better than what people are wearing right now. You know you’re ready to dump the look when they’re selling it on the Wal-Mart website, right?
