Ready for summer? This year’s season is shaping up to be full of fun and style, and when it comes to denim, there’s no way you’ll want to miss the latest exciting trends. Here are some stunning summer denim styles you’ll see this year.
Every detail matters!
Jeans are a classic staple in any season, but with the right details, denim pants can become a great way to elevate the basics, showing your style with small touches that express a lot. Jean style is all about the cut of the pants. This summer, flare bottom jeans are in style. The flared bottom makes these popular pants a stylish and comfortable detail to add to your denim collection. High-waisted “mom” or high-rise “dad” jeans are especially popular, and the distressed look can give an added touch of style while preserving the laid-back feel.
Considering the cut of your jeans isn’t the only way to add denim details into your wardrobe. This summer, you’ll see lots of different types of denim touches, especially for bottoms, with accented features like buckles, rips, patches, and patterns. To stay in style, get creative with buckled shorts and skirts as a fun detail to add texture to the denim look. Every detail matters with these fun summer denim styles.
Functional and Fashionable
Let’s be honest: we all have some denim in our closets. Everyone, from hardworking moms to celebrities, at some point this summer is going to be rocking their favorite pair(s) of jeans, like these influencers who can relate to real-life (Jackie is even wearing her jeans in her signature picture). But denim doesn’t just have to be functional — although its comfort and accessibility are definitely benefits. You can also add style to your wardrobe with denim pieces.
For example, this denim dungaree is both functional and fashionable, with a clean and simple design that is easy to dress up or down. With a rich dark wash color, adjustable straps, and pockets, this is a great example of a denim piece that is comfortable and stylish.
Skinny jeans look great in fall and winter with oversized sweaters, but that tight look isn’t a great feeling once the temperature starts creeping up. Instead, this summer is all about denim in cool comfort. Loose-fitting jeans, especially with wide-leg silhouettes, are all the rage. While the 90’s look of baggy light-wash jeans is especially trending, other colors and styles are popular too, just so long as the denim piece prioritizes comfort and style. This looser denim trend extends to relaxed-fit denim clothes in non-blue hues as well, including white, taupe, cream, and black. Monochromatic pieces can be a great way to go for a sleek look, especially if you’re looking for a way to wear the anti-skinny-jean trend if you’re short!
Layer in Style
Staying out late on those summer nights is fun, but it can get chilly. You can layer in style with denim jackets, which are becoming increasingly popular. There are plenty of different designs of these jackets, from light-wash and clean to more grungy and distressed, so you can customize what works best for your own sense of style.
Denim jackets are easy to style as layers or signature pieces in an outfit. Vogue suggests that the most basic, but foolproof combination is a white tee, wide-leg pants, and a jean jacket. Once you find a great denim jacket that fits your style, it can even work for you beyond fitting summer denim trends, becoming a year-round staple.
Color it Up
Denim tends to be associated with blue jeans, but this summer, you’ll see denim styles in all sorts of shades. This often comes up with the growing resurgence of double denim, which typically pairs two different shades of denim together in one outfit.
Love Your Look
Whether you’re looking for fashion for busy women or your summer style is more relaxed, find cool comfort with these denim trends. Denim is shaping up to be more in style this summer than in previous seasons, plus it brings the added benefits of comfort and accessibility. Regardless of if you’re going to be adding some flare bottom jeans, buckled shorts or skirts, distressed pants, layering jackets, or stylish overalls to your wardrobe, you’ll definitely be seeing these stunning summer denim styles this year. Love your look by incorporating the denim styles that fit best for you.
