Denim is the easiest go-to piece in almost any wordrobe, even for summer!! I literally have a heart attack when I see people in dark, skinny jeans when it is 100 degress, so here are some other less terrifying options… I am kind of obsessed with my denim short overalls. They are an easy throw on outfit that you don’t have to really think about but is still super cute and fun! I am almost too old for this trend, but I decided I just make the cusp:)
Another version of the denim overalls can be seen on the trendy Sarah Jessica Parker. She rocks the full length look so well because she is slender. If you’re going to try this look, I would only recommend it for those who are long and lean. We are obviously not as small as her, but you should have less curve going on for this look.
Another big denim trend this summer is the distressed boyfriend jeans. They’re great for a both a casual daytime look and nighttime look. Pair them with some Vince slip on sneakers and a lightweight sweater for during the day or a blouse and heels for a dressier nighttime look.
Who doesn’t love a good pair of white skinny jeans for the summer. They can be worn with almost everything and add a little variety to your standard denim. Pair them with a color blouse for a pop or stick to a more neutral black and white palette and you’re good to go! Yes, I added Birks, even though I don’t love them, because they are functional for running errands or just being on your feet all day.
Flared denim can be cute if worn the right way and on the right body type. Obviously Victoria Beckham looks great in flared jeans because shes so slender, but she also pairs them with sky high heels to make her legs look longer. Rule to live by: If you are under 5’5″, you need to wear some sort of heel with a wider leg pant or you look short and squat. Over 5’5″ can get away with a flat and wide leg pants.
So no matter what your body type is there is summer denim for you!
