With the weather so scorching, denim could well be the last fabric you’re thinking about wearing RN. However, denim isn’t just for winter. Wear it well and you can look amazing in the sunshine too. Here’s our guide on how to wear denim, our favourite d-word, this summer.
There are so many ways to wear denim as a dress. From a classic shirt dress to a skintight bodycon à la Elsa Hosk, this style can look fab on any figure. Go for an embellished or zip-through dress to really stand out from the crowd. If you want a bit more coverage, don’t be afraid of teaming with a denim jacket – Double denim is in, and a black jacket will look fab thrown over a blue denim dress.
Denim skirts are a classic and a summer wardrobe staple. Dress them down with an oversized t-shirt and trainers like Hailey Baldwin, for a cool girl daytime look. Just add sunglasses. Or get night-out ready by wearing a denim skirt with a plunging bodysuit. Just throw on some layered necklaces and skyscraper heels to complete the outfit. Get those legs out, girl.
Yeah ok, so it might be too hot to consider jeans at the moment, but we all know the British weather and this can’t last forever… If the Mercury drops, then jeans can easily look summertime appropriate. Take inspo from Bella, and wear a loose-fitting pair of mom jeans with a tiny crop top. Or wear your fave skinnies with a backless bodysuit and heels on a night out.
Denim tops are a surefire way to win some fashion points. Obviously, you can go down the denim shirt route for a safe way to nail the look. Or, throw caution to the wind like Alessandra Ambrosio, and show some skin with a denim bralet or crop top. Either wear with shorts as double denim or wear with a floaty maxi skirt for a toughened up boho style.
If you’ve not got a pair of denim shorts in your suitcase, then are you even going on holiday? Yes, they can be thrown on at the beach as a bikini coverup, but denim shorts are so much more than that. Wear with an oversized t-shirt and boots for laidback vibes, or with a crop top and leather jacket like Kaia if you’re in the mood to show off some skin.
Denim jackets are pretty much the only coat you need this summer and are perfect for any occasion. In your gym stuff and heading straight to brunch with the gals? Throw on a denim jacket. Got a knockout dress like Kylie Jenner’s planned for a BNO, but worried it might be too OTT? Dress it down with a denim jacket and worry no more. There’s a style of denim jacket for everyone.
