Are Jeans Making You Depressed?

Rumor has it that jeans are associated with depression.

How is that possible when more than half of women own an average of eight pairs?

According to the article The Link Between Clothing Choices and Emotional States a study done by Professor Karen Pine shows that when 100 women were asked what they decided to wear when feeling sad or down, about half responded with jeans; only about a third said they wore jeans when they felt good.

I do not really agree nor disagree with this statement. After reading various articles about how depression is linked with wearing jeans and thinking about the times when I actually slipped on a pair of jeans I would be lying if I said that I did not feel the best or the prettiest that day, but I also would not say that I was depressed by any means.

Although I don’t necessarily agree with the fact that most people you see wearing jeans are depressed, I do agree with the fact that if you don’t feel beautiful wearing jeans, then you can show the same characteristics of being depressed. Why put something on your body that doesn’t bring out the best in you. Don’t hold yourself back.

I feel like most of us put on jeans as a laid back sort of look. Maybe we put them on when we don’t feel well, or we’re just not in the mood to go the extra mile that day, but that doesn’t mean we’re depressed. The study done by professor Pine shows that people should wear “happy Clothes” even when they’re feeling sad, which would mean losing the jeans. In my opinion, I believe that every person has their own style. Some people may hate wearing jeans, or just can’t seem to find the perfect pair that fits just right;¬†well, then I would say don’t wear the jeans, but if jeans make you happy, then wear them and you’ll look and feel great!


Feel beautiful in YOUR jeans!
