Totally tired of jeans, ya’ll

I am trapped in a sea of insipid fashion.

Insipid, thy name is  blue jeans.

For the past 20-something years, jeans have been my go-to item for casual legwear/pants/bottoms/etc. I had an epiphany last weekend when I looked around me and saw that everyone else had on jeans, too.

I am now, officially, bored with jeans.

But what else can I wear that isn’t a skirt, dress, or leggings??

Why does casual have to equal jeans? I’m bored! I don’t care if they are dark, medium or (heaven forbid) light wash… baggy, skinny, boyfriend, straight leg, boot cut….. they are all boring, repetitive and I need something new, something chic, and something to spice up my casual wardrobe.

Designers? Do you hear me? It is time for a new fashion invention. A new era of go-to legwear!

Okay, I am done complaining now….

    I’m tired of jeans myself. They seem to be all I wear whether I’m at home, work or play. Hope your week started off well. Take care. Cheers!

    I did have a similar epiphany over the summer and so I spent the last few months in skirts and dresses. But its cold these days, so I’ve switched back to my denim. But I agree, we need a new legwear invention.

    You can wear those training suits like the Juicy Couture ones…. I understand what you mean. You know, maybe try baggy pants too.

    I don’t think I could live without jeans!

  • Reply Leia November 17, 2009 at 11:33 am

    Haha, I totally agree! You could wear cropped trousers, or just normal trousers… there’s a huge variety! I got bored of jeans ages ago and hardly wear them, now. I know how everyone says they’re comfortable but I actually find them really uncomfortable! I live in skirts, dresses, and leggings 🙂

    i so agree. i’m sick of jeans myself. i got so used to the slick, smoothness of leggings that jeans feel stiff and uncomfortable.

    I’m just going to start wearing slutty sequined dresses not suitable for daytime like Serena Vanderwoodsen.

    While I am not sick of jeans, leggings are my real go-to pant these days!

    OMG! I’m bored too with jeans! I am sooo HAPPY to be back in the blogosphere because I have missed your posts due to working two jobs since my permanent job cut my hours in half! Anyway, I know it sounds crazy but I luv to wear white jeans in the cold months instead of blue and black ones!
    p.s. I do luv wearing leggings not only are they fashionably fab but they’re comfty!:))

    I think pants in the style of Katherine Hepburn would be amazing. They always seemed so flowy and comfortable and perfect. If I could get my hands on a few similar pairs, I too would kiss my jeans goodbye!

  • Reply Chris Rickman November 17, 2009 at 6:36 pm

    Might I put my hand in the air for something khaki or has it been retired for the season?

  • Reply Ela November 18, 2009 at 3:00 am

    It’s hard to get out of the jean rut. I notice when I wear them most of the week when I finally put on a skirt or a dress I feel like I’m not wearing any bottoms, yeah…I’m like glancing down all day to make sure I’m actually fully dressed…

  • Reply Holly J November 18, 2009 at 11:47 am

    Black dress pants-my jean alternative. You can get them in just as many styles as jeans (well, almost as many), and they go with everything, and are just a tad bit more chic.
