Originally used strictly used as work clothes in construction and farming, denim’s strength and durability surpassed other fabrics. Manufacturers, such as Levi Strauss and Lee, created the best in denim work clothes for those who worked in the industrial sector.

The beat generation, Marlon Brando, and James Dean swaggered in their blue jeans during the fifties. Then along came all those rock and rollers, who helped make the comfy denim material a fashion staple.

Today it is believed that the average number of jeans a woman owns and has in her closet is seven pairs. Jeans are not only for casual wear either.  It has made its way into the professional workplace also.  They're comfy, affordable, timeless, can be dressed up or down, and there's a style out there that flatters everyone. And with all the cuts and colors available, a versatile wardrobe is created. As any jeans devotee will tell you that the more you wear a pair of jeans, and proper care is taken, the longer they will last and look great each and every day.

Whether dress-up or dress-down jeans, a designer handbag just finishes off the look. There are two ideal designer handbags, both from Louis Vuitton, that work as a compliment for a woman´s jean therapy.

The other authentic Louis Vuitton handbag to consider as a jeans wearer is the Speedy 25. The Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 is a must have for any fashionista with a love for classics such as jeans.
