There’s no doubt about it – denim is a wardrobe staple we’d all be lost without! Whether your go-to is a trusty pair of skinny jeans, or you prefer to rock a denim jacket or denim dress, the styling options are endless.
You may still be wondering – how can I wear denim in warm weather? Well, there’s no need to break a sweat! Our handy guide has everything you need to look and feel cool this summer. Scroll to discover how to style your fave denim staples like a pro.
Try A Denim Alternative
Don’t get us wrong – we adore a good pair of jeans! Comfy, versatile, flattering – what’s not to love?
However, it’s always fun to mix things up when warm weather hits!
The next time you’re tempted to reach for your favourite jeans, pick up denim shorts instead. Move in on the Jorts trend in baggy fits and knee-length pairs. Chances are, they’ll work a dream with whichever top you’ve picked out, and you’ll feel heaps cooler when you step outside – hello total win-win!
If you love your new look (and we’re sure you will), try playing around with different styles and shades of denim shorts. It’ll make off-duty dressing in the heat feel like a breeze!
Seasonal Denim Shades
Whilst black jeans are the crowning glory of our cold-weather closets, come summertime, lighter hues and stone-washed styles are winning our favour.
For a softer, brighter look on sunny days, bag jeans in seasonal shades. You can never go wrong with pale blue, cream, grey, or white jeans. These lighter colours deflect heat from the sun and will keep you cooler than those darker staples.
They will also perfectly match your line-up of summery tops, t-shirts and blouses. So you can easily dress them up or down depending on the occasion – just add sandals and sunnies for a weekend-ready ‘fit you’ll want to wear on repeat!
Find The Right Summer Jeans For You
The key to nailing a summer jeans outfit is all about finding a cut and a fabric you feel comfortable in. Luckily, our dreamy denim shop is bursting with everything from stylish skinny jeans and high-waisted jeans to comfy mom jeans and cropped jeans.
Can’t bear to part with your go-to denim? We hear you, and we promise you don’t have to! Try pairing skinny jeans with a lightweight floral top for summer evening socials.
Want to mix things up? Slip into a trending pair of wide-leg jeans with a cotton vest or a quirky slogan tee.
A short sleeve top will instantly balance out your jeans making your outfit suitable for those soaring midday temperatures. Perfect for casual lunch dates with the girls, running errands, or even doing the school run in style!
Grab A Summer Denim Jacket
We’re calling it – denim jackets are the perfect summer evening layer for your after-dark plans! Light enough that you won’t break a sweat and warm enough to keep out the cool evening breeze.
Throw yours over summer dresses, skirts, shorts, or even a summery pair of jeans. Speaking of which, we’re all for bold double denim outfits, and there are so many ways to wear them!
Our favourite? A timeless blue denim jacket with a chic pair of white or cream-coloured jeans. Pro tip: keep things simple and style yours with a classic white tee for an effortlessly streamlined off-duty look.
Step Out In Summer Denim Dresses
Not that we need an excuse to add gorgeous denim dresses to our wardrobes, but we reckon they are the ultimate one-and-done outfit for summer weekend plans!
So, next time you’re rushing out the door, remember, you can always rely on your fave denim dress to feel put together in seconds. Go for button-through styles for a smart-casual look, or stay cool and comfy in relaxed-fit styles.
