Jeans have become a classic piece of garment, and are a must have for men, women, and children. Whether you are going to school, to work, on a weekend trip, or a dress-down dinner, you can get into your favourite pair of jeans, and you are ready to go. Jeans are one of the most versatile and practical piece of garment that is not only comfortable, but also easy to care.
Barring a few designer brands, most jeans are very inexpensive, and that is the reason why most of us own more than 3 or 4 pairs. In fact a survey done in 2009 stated that an average American has at least 7 pair of jeans in his or her wardrobe.
The Colour Revolution in Jeans: Till the 1970s, jeans were available only in blue. In the 1980s coloured jeans became famous, and for the first time people realised that jeans can actually be in any colour they want.
People started wearing jeans in multi-coloured and patterned looks. This fashion did not last long and faded away. Now coloured jeans are back with a vengeance. Solid colour jeans for women are the latest trend and are truly catching up.
These jeans are not as easily available as the blue ones because their trends keep changing really fast. The colour is also dependent of the season. However, neutral shades like grey, white, black and tan are easily available.
Handy Tips to Care for Your Coloured Jeans: The coloured jeans are technically not jeans. They are dyed using different garment dying processes. The white twill jeans are passed through a number of phases to be dyed into different colours. Since these are coloured, they have the tendency to fade, and thus proper care need to be taken while washing them, especially to maintain their original look. Here are a few tips to make sure that your coloured pair of jeans does not fade.
- Wash your coloured jeans with like coloured garments, as the dye tends to run during the first couple of washes.
- Always wash your coloured jeans inside out. This way you can reduce the fading caused due to fabric rubbing.
- These should be washed with liquid detergent in cold water. This again reduces the washing away of the colour.
- Choose the gentle cycle in your washer.
- Instead of using the dryer, let it dry indoors.
Unlike the normal jeans, coloured ones are not worn faded and weathered looking. These jeans are preferably worn with a bright and fresh look, as it is dressier than the normal ones. So, buy your favourite colour jeans and take good care of it to keep it looking like new.
