I avoided the witty title for this post in the attempt to seriously drive this point home. I consider this a must have in any one's closet, whether you are male, female, 20 or 65.
First of all, colored denim is a huge trend right now, and for those of you who aren't likely to don a pair of purple jeans, muted tones such as grays and tans allow you to be subtly current. Moreover, gray is not a color--its on the black to white spectrum, so you can't clash with it. So they are far more versatile than a truly colored jean, but allow you to divert from classic blue.
But this goes way beyond a trend, this is a timeless staple. Chances are you already wear jeans all the time. If you don't, you are an anomaly. Mix it up a little. Don't you get tired of the same old thing? They look great with tees or sport coats. You can find them in distressed faded versions or classy, clean and dark. It will add a slight twist to your weekend look.
AND they contribute to the Sandy Neutrals trend I wrote about last week! Throw on an ivory tee and an ecru jacket and you will be wearing two trends at once!
