Posh Spice, aka Victoria Beckham, recently interviewed to promote her new denim line, chatted about the do’s and don’ts of men’s denim fashion. She shared her opinion regarding proper fit, length, loose versus tight, color and wash, etc. Although she gave her two cents about how your man’s jeans should fit, she didn’t discuss the dos and don’ts on where to wear them.
Denim has emerged as appropriate dress clothes for all occasion. Wearing denim to a formal dinner or a party is much more accepted in California versus the South. But there is not doubt you see denim much more often than in years past. However, it will always remain unacceptable to wear denim during a summer day at the beach. No matter the denim piece…shorts, skirts, pants, overalls, jacket, it should be left at home! Especially denim pants and overalls. On hot, 80 degree days, you should not be wearing denim pants down to the beach. The only exception to this rule is in the early morning or evening, when you may be taking a stroll on the beach. This is more accepted in the fall and winter. Spring is pushing it as you should be transitioning to lighter knits, cottons and linens (we can get into that another time). Does this all sounds ridiculous? I think you’ll change your mind next time you see someone walking down to the beach in their faded jeans and wife beater. Kind of ruins the atmosphere, don’t you think?
