‘‘Keeping it for good.’’
This phrase and notion is evidence of the divide between different generations.
I was reminded of this while transitioning my wardrobe from winter to summer - a risky thing to do in late spring in the south.
I’m torn between the Generation X - save it for a rainy day - and the Generation Y - why wait thinking.
If you’re Gen X or older, you may remember growing up, and having definite special occasion clothes, the ones you kept for good.
If you wore your good clothes everyday, they wouldn’t be ‘‘good’’ any more, and you’d have nothing for the more special occasions.
But clothes have become a lot more casual, so the lines have blurred; the divide between what’s good and what’s everyday isn’t the same.
The big bond between the generations?
Jeans. You can wear almost anything with them, wear them almost anywhere and almost anyone can wear them.
