It’s time to put away our winter denim but that doesn’t signal the end of wearing denim all together (in the southern states, we can’t put away our denim regardless. It could be 40 degrees one day and then 16 degrees the next). Light weight denim jeans, shorts, skirts, jackets and shirts are all great ways to wear your favourite denim pieces in the warmer months.
Manufacturers are getting clever with our beloved denim fabric, transforming it into on-trend, warm-weather staples that are still totally wearable without feeling like you are wearing a sauna suit.
Thanks to Glue Store, we have come up with easy denim outfit ideas for Summer:
Denim shorts have been a summer staple for many, many years and they aren’t going anywhere in a hurry. A classic look that doesn’t date is the old favourite denim shorts with white shirt combination. This summer sees the baggy denim shorts of the 90s coming back into style. Remember, shorts ride up as you walk, so it is better to get a pair that sit longer on your legs. No one wants to see your lady bits or butt! That also goes for shorts that are too tight and short.
Cropped jeans are a summer go to for me. There are so many ways you can wear them and this summers off the shoulder tops look fantastic with them. Finish off the look with a trendy pair of sneakers, cute sandals or thongs for a casual day look.
The perfect denim jacket is timeless and it can be worn throughout all the different seasons (I have owned the same denim jacket for fifteen years) . There are so many ways to layer and style them. It really is a wardrobe essential. Great to pop on over your outfit on cooler days or to have on hand for nights out.
We love denim shirts because they go great with just about everything and this time of year in Melbourne, you need something that you can wear with jeans and a knit one day and rolled up the sleeves and wear it with shorts the next.
From preppy to bohemian, there is a style to suit everyone. Tied over a maxi dress, tucked into a cute skirt or floral maxi skirt, worn loose over a pair of shorts with a tank top underneath or worn with white jeans (like below) are just some ways (out of hundreds) you can wear a denim shirt.
I live in white jeans over summer, as there are so many different looks you can achieve from one pair of jeans. With a blazer and tee shirt or denim shirt on cooler days to a light floaty, off the shoulder top on warmer days. White jeans even look great with a cami or tank top and a pair of sandals.
