They Are Dark Jeans...So It Is OK

Somewhere a few years ago someone pulled a big joke on everyone when they told the world that dark jeans are dressy...because they are dark.

What?
As if the color of your sweatshirt somehow makes it acceptable to wear to a formal dinner party.
Now don't get me wrong I am all for relaxing the dress standards of corporate America. Just don't try to justify it by saying that the color makes the difference. You have been fooled into a perception issue. Just fucking wear jeans and be done with it regardless of color they are. Otherwise you just sound as silly as the retarded fashion expert who started this whole joke to begin with.

The same goes for people who try to make tennis shoes look like dress shoes. To me it says in a quiet voice I want to be a non-conformist and comfortable but I don't want anyone to know or get offended.

Grow a pair and listen to yourself, you sound like an idiot.

I only wear tennis shoes if I am walking/running, working out or mowing the lawn.

I can't stand when people don't wear a belt, I think it looks retarded.

I hate tennis shoes, blah to them. As for jeans it doesn't have to be dark to be nice. It's all about how you wear them. P.S. I love dress down Fridays at work, gives me a chance to wear my cute out of work clothes.

Well, I see what you're saying about the jeans, but there ARE nicer jeans than just your Saturday standby's...and usually they are darker. But it's not the color always. In any case, no matter how nice the jean, it's never appropriate to wear them to a fancy dinner or a job interview.

On another note: I am wearing jeans right now. And Rocket, with a belt. :)

Dark jeans....aka black....used to be my way of "dressing up" when I was overweight. So hard to actually dress up when you're heavy. Now I have no qualms about dressing down an outfit with blue jeans and converse....ya know, cause that's how I roll. LOL.
