Growing tired of your average blue denim? Us, too.
While we’ll always have love for our go-to pair of cutoffs and reach for the oversized jean jacket when we’re in a pinch, this season, we’re looking to breathe new life into the wardrobe staple. Lucky for us, this summer is brimming with fresh new takes on classic denim styles.
Seen in the form of muted pastels, off-whites, and even vibrant neons, denim styles such as cropped jackets, jumpsuits, dresses, and more just got a killer (and, in some cases, pretty vibrant) new upgrade. Because what else would we want to keep ourselves warm on a cool summer evening than a banana yellow jacket, and what better alternative to baby blue cutoffs than lilac Bermuda shorts?
Below, we rounded up 16 ways to step up your denim looks this summer. We’re kissing our blue jeans goodbye—at least until fall rolls around, that is.
