Oh the power of ripped jeans!!!! They have been a popular trend for a couple of decades now, and they continue to be a staple in many women’s wardrobes. However, this trend has also been subject to some controversy….. particularly when it comes to the opinions of those who view it as inappropriate or unprofessional. Outside of my hair, I get more comments about ripped jeans. It’s strange to me, but then it’s not. Let’s talk….
One the biggest reasons in my opinion that women are so opinionated about wearing ripped jeans is this. Women often face greater scrutiny and criticism for their clothing choices especially at midlife. This can be especially true in the professional world. They get careful and then think that everyone else should be careful too.
However, I will always argue that ripped jeans can be just as appropriate and stylish as other types of clothing, depending on how they are worn. For example, pairing ripped jeans with a blazer or dressy top can create a chic and polished look, while wearing them with a casual t-shirt can create a more laid-back vibe.
WHY WOMEN ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT RIPPED JEANS
For the braver and edgier ladies, wearing them is a form of expression. Clothing is a powerful form of communicating one’s personality, and interests, and ripped jeans can be a way for women to express their sassy side. I personally LOVE their funk!!!!
Moreover, ripped jeans can give women a chance to challenge tradition and expectations. Not too many years ago, women were expected to wear “proper” clothing. However, as those expectations have evolved, so too have women’s fashion choices. Ripped jeans can be seen as a way for women to embrace their individuality and reject the norm!
Ladies….. don’t let society dictate your style. Ripped jeans CAN be a way for midlife women to reclaim their confidence and challenge these crazy ideas about what is appropriate and what isn’t. It’s up to YOU! Letting the power of ripped jeans reinvent your look and add some spunk in to your style…. is a great idea and one you should try!!!! Don’t get stuck in a rut!
