The 1960s saw fashion reject the conventions and niceties of previous eras. Clothing broke with social traditions that dictated what could be worn when and by whom. In the past, attire had been divided in to ‘formal’ and ‘casual’ wear, and distinct separations were made between the styles of clothing worn by men and women. The 1960s, however, saw the emergence of unisex clothing such as denim jeans, which could be worn by both sexes. Denim jeans, which had remained a staple wardrobe item for many young people throughout the decade, were inspired by mod fashion. New styles of denim jeans emerged and the rest is history.
One of the top denim trends is always going to be jeans. From flared to bootcut to skinny and wide leg, jeans are coming in and out of fashion trends all of the time. Jeans are settling for a more classic fit. Almost anything goes. Skinny, straight, pooled around the ankle, even cropped. The main thing to remember with jeans, or any clothing to pull off the classic trend in men’s fashion, is that they fit you. That’s true for most things you wear to make it look classic. Jeans will remain a classic though and, if done right, very contemporary.
