You guys know we love our jeans! And that fact doesn’t change even though the temperatures rise in the summer. We love to wear our denim year round! One of the most frequent questions we get from clients is – how do I wear my jeans in the summer? So, today, we thought we would share some style inspo with 7 summer looks featuring denim with you guys!
7 Summer Looks Featuring Denim
Clients ask us all the time if they can wear their jeans in the summer, and if so, for advice on how to do that. There are so many ways to continue enjoying your favorite pair of jeans! Pair them with a tank top and flip flops, a tee shirt and sandals, a sweater tank and strappy heeled sandals… There are so many ways to wear your jeans casual and dressy this time of year. And of course, there is always the option of denim shorts as well, which we will cover a little later in the blog post. But first, let’s take a look at four looks Katie styled utilizing distressed denim.
Fun Ways To Wear Your Jeans This Summer
First up, one of our go-to looks… Button-up shirt and jeans! Katie paired her button-up shirt with one of her favorite comfy pair of jeans and her go-to gold accessories and tan sandals for a fun mixture of classic and edgy. This oversized striped button-up shirt is from our favorite line of button-ups at Zara and is less than $50!
When dressing for a fun night out, don’t forget about your denim! This time of year is perfect for pairing your favorite jeans with a summery top and some heeled sandals for a sexy, chic summer night look. We recently found this asymmetrical floral blouse at Mango… What a fabulous statement piece for only $50!
Katie used a satin button-shirt and distressed jeans to create this fun high low look. Throw on your favorite necklace, bracelet stack, and metallic sandals, and you are ready to go! This shirt comes from one of our favorite lines of button-up shirts on Mango. It is only $45 and also comes in ivory, magenta, and kelly green.
Pair a brightly colored blazer with a simple tee shirt (we love the fun pop of pattern that the stripes add to this look). Add your favorite neutral flat or heeled sandal for a dressy casual daytime look. To transition this concept to evening, change the striped tee shirt to a camisole and elevate the look further with high heel strappy sandals.
How To Style Denim Shorts
If you are sensitive to the heat and just don’t enjoy wearing jeans in the summer, denim shorts are a great alternative to achieve a similar look and stay a bit cooler. Even though we tend to wear our jeans in the summer months, we also find ourselves reaching for denim shorts for more casual looks as well! We are showing three different styled looks here to give you guys some fun ideas on summer looks featuring denim shorts. First – and again – Katie’s signature choice for jean shorts… A button-up shirt! Katie owns this button-up in four colors now. It’s one of our go-to pieces at Zara that is in stock year over year. It is $35 and also comes in white, khaki, and sage green.
And of course, a striped tee shirt is always a fun summertime choice. So simple, yet so effective. This is a current one that we are loving! A navy striped shirt gives off the perfect summer vibe. A note on these denim shorts… Katie snapped these up on Zara to give them a try. We are SO impressed with them! Only $40…. The perfect way to try out denim shorts without making a huge investment. We recommend sizing up one size on these.
How To Dress Up Your Denim Shorts
Elevate your denim shorts with a dressier summer blouse. How fabulous is this one we sourced at Mango recently?? And again, such a beautiful statement for only $60. Add some simple accessories and your favorite pair of sandals, and you are looking effortless and elevated for a fun summer day with very little effort.
