TIPS ON HOW TO WEAR BLUE JEANS ELEGANTLY

A pair of blue jeans is probably the one single item of clothing that everyone owns. What was once a sign of anti-establishment rebellion has now become a staple worn by just about everyone, regardless of their different personal styles.

They are comfortable to wear, easy to look after and, paired with the right outfit and accessories, they can  be as good for a day in the office, as they are for a day relaxing at home said Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal.

  1. Straight-Leg Jeans with heels

When you’ve got a great brand new pair of heels to wear, roll up the ankles of a pair of classic straight leg blue jeans and show off those heels in style. It’s a great way to tone down what might otherwise look a little bit of a mismatch between formal and casual.

  1. Skinny jeans and thigh length boots

Get the ‘Pretty Woman’ look, by pairing your skinny or straight leg jeans with a pair of thigh high boots. It’s the perfect way to add drama to your look and the guys just love those boots too. For a great, relaxed, daytime look, try matching your blue jeans and thigh length boots with a long, chunky cardigan and a cuffed shirt.

  1. Cuffed jeans and ankle boots

You can give a pair of straight jeans a completely new look by not tucking them into your ankle boots, but cuffing them just above the boots instead. It looks fanatic when you pair this with black boots and a black leather jacket. It’s very reminiscent of the old rocker style, but it works just as well, in a softer way, with beige boots or brown.

Blue jeans will never go out of style, so wear them elegantly and add your own touch of uniqueness to your wear-anywhere jeans commented Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

Wrinkle resistant updates

Wrinkle resistant updates on cotton fabric

It seems everybody in the world is allergic to iron activities, but we all agree that wearing wrinkled clothes is not a professional thing to do. Thanks to heaven we have “wrinkle resistant” garments and avoiding ironing is the most logical reason why they become so popular; however, the actual methods for producing these type of fabrics are always connected to chemicals, which worries people that care for their health.

Some other methods have been developed but still, chemicals are involved or they are very very expensive. Yiqi Yang and colleagues’ team worked to investigate chemicals that would have wrinkle resistant properties but without needing formaldehyde, which is a very dangerous chemical. Afterwards, the team tested combinations of these chemicals; and the best combination was citric acid with xylitol, although the citric yellowed the fabric, the xylitol eliminates this and the wrinkle resistant result is better, also this combination is born from renewable raw materials; therefore, it is friendly with the environment, adding that its costs effective is improved vs other green results and can compete in price with the other chemicals that use formaldehyde.

The source of the above investigation is from the American chemical society, information that help us to understand how much we need to care about our planet and how is the science working to have or generate  “greener” solutions each day.

Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, is also a great entrepreneur worried about our legacy and foot print to the environment; therefore, he and his team are always dedicated to use the most sustainable products in order to reduce the negative impact to the environment. “We are a responsible company that practices sustainability, we always check first if the products to be used are in environmental performance, before starting a new development”, explained Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
