Denim Done Right: 10 Denim Styles to Rock This Summer

Denim is an American classic, especially during summertime. But this durable fabric may be even more versatile than you thought. Give your old jeans and cutoffs a break and experiment with these fresh denim looks for summer instead. Just be careful about mixing and matching any of the items or doubling up on any blue jean items. Denim on denim often results in a look that some have so eloquently termed "The Hillbilly Tuxedo." Don't do that look. Ever.

G by GUESS Hannah Cropped Denim Vest

A denim vest should be one of your staple items this summer—seriously. On hot summer days, throw this on top of whatever you typically pair a jean jacket with during the cooler months. And if you're a fashion novice, might I suggest sticking with a white or colored denim vest? I'd hate to send you out into the world in a blue jean vest, looking like you got lost on the way to Sturgis.

Topshop MOTO Bleach Spot Denim Skirt

We're in love with this denim polka-dot skirt. There are dozens of creative ways to work this into your summer wardrobe, and you shouldn't be shy about mixing patterns. Our favorite idea is pairing this with a striped tank and some matching heels.

THML Clothing Tank Romper

This romper is seriously genius: It looks like a flowy tank and shorts, rather than a one-piece ensemble. Even better? No worring about how to put this denim look together—the jean top and crochet bottoms look charming together.

MinkPink Blue Collar Denim Shirt

The sleeveless denim button-down has been done before (probably by your mom), but the faded ombré effect lets this specific top span the generational gap. To bring new life to this old denim standby, avoid doubling down on the denim—we suggest wearing it with a pair of black skinnies. And whatever you do, please don't tuck it in.

Topshop Denim Bandeau Dress

The sillhouette on this dress is simple enough, but the denim material ensures you will stand out. Even though the dress has a cocktail feel, wearing it at night could look a bit dated. Instead, throw a printed blazer on over it for a stylish daytime look.

Dolce Vita Aussie Denim Star Romper

Elegant denim? Somehow Dolce Vita nailed this one. It must be the scalloped bottom or the vintage shape. Either way, this look is a guaranteed winner. Throw on some nude heels and a white blazer to up the ante.

Siwy Denim Hannah Slim Crop Jean in Thunder

Printed denim is huge right now—and if you're looking for something a little more edgy than the popular floral print, these cropped "Thunder" jeans are perfect. The light pink and gray tie dye print is a great way to keep your look unique, while still giving off a flirty, summer vibe. 

Karl Lagerfeld Jovanna Neon Stretch-Denim Biker Jacket

Neon, denim, biker jackets— Karl Lagerfeld ticked off three of the season's hottest trends in this one piece. It's not surprising that he would bring so much savvy to his own brand, considering Lagerfeld is the famed designer and creative director for luxury fashion house Chanel.

ASOS Woven Front Denim Tee

The woven front on this denim top has a very southwestern vibe that'll look great with a pair of leather shorts—unless you actually live in the southwest, in which case you should probably just stick with cotton.

Reverse Denim Shirt in Dip Dye

This dip-dyed denim tank is definitely the right look for summer. Because of the bold hues, it's also one of the rare occassions when it's okay to mix with denim bottoms.
