3 Tips for Wearing Distressed Denim Differently This Summer


Jeans are certainly comfortable, but unless you want to leave a trail of sweat in your wake or look slouchy, you need to update your wardrobe for any summer occasion. Just as you wouldn't wear boardshorts in the wintertime, you should switch from your cool season denim to distressed light blue jeans this summer.

Here are 3 tips for switching up your denim selection and looking stylish for any summer occasion.

Go Lighter

The idea of wearing skinny blue jeans in the summer may sound like torture, and you might expect to have to peel your jeans off at the end of a hot day. However, you can save your sweat if you switch to a lighter fabric. Most denim jeans are about 14 ounces in fabric weight, which is suitable for the fall and winter, but isn't appropriate for summer. You'll feel breezy and look leaner in some lightweight distressed denim. 

Opt for Distressed

Distressed denim doesn't just have that effortless cool that's key to summer style; it's also more practical. Distressed jeans have ventilation in the form of patches, holes, and tears, all of which will make you feel comfortable and on-trend as the temperatures climb out of control. What could be better than feeling comfortable and looking fashionable at the same time? 

While chinos and other more formal pants have been on-trend for the past few seasons, summer is bringing back the 1980s and 1990s distressed look. Pair your jeans with some other 80s/90s-inspired tops and shoes for a complete outfit that feels as cool as it looks.

Go Brighter

Light blue jeans are perfect for summer because they absorb less heat, while also pairing perfectly with a cool cotton tee in summery white or pink. Brighter colors are part of summer style for a reason, hence why you'd be expected to wear a great deal of charcoal or black in the winter, when warmth is precious. This summer, trade out your formal, dark jeans for light blue or white jeans.
