Americans have had a love affair with blue jeans for as long as I can remember. They are never out of fashion, and whether you are a male or female baby boomer, (which means you may also be a grandparent) doesn’t mean you can’t rock a good pair of blue jeans.
What is it with all the disparaging talk about so-called "mom jeans" and “dad jeans?” They were high fashion in the 80s, and yes, several styles popular at that time have deservedly gone by the wayside. Others are still around because they are universal. Buying a pair of jeans should be about good fit and comfort.
Higher-cut, normal-fitting jeans work for a lot of women and men. It is best to buy from departments that have several lengths and cuts, letting you find what works well for your body type, not the latest low-rise teen-jean on the market. If you choose flattering jeans that look and feel good, you’ll feel younger and more energetic. What more can be asked of our favorite “go to” article of clothing?
