How to Wear Jeans in Hot Weather

Sultry summer days are the perfect match for flowy fabrics. If you love your denim pieces, the onset of hot weather doesn’t necessarily mean you have to leave them in the closet.


Weighing Your Options

There’s more than style where it comes to choosing the right denim in the warmer weather months. For example, weight will definitely be a factor; heavy denim jeans on a hot day will only make it feel hotter, so choose a wide-legged style in lighter chambray when temps are high.

Coastal living means being prepared for quick temperature changes, which makes denim of a heavier weight the perfect choice. You can stay cool during the day by pairing skinny jeans with a breezy or barely there top and, when the sun goes down, throw on a cozy summer sweater or button-up shirt to chase the chill away.

In lieu of choosing denim bottoms, you can also keep things comfy with removable denim pieces. Think a light chambray shirt over a crisp white tank or a jean jacket paired with a tied-up tee.

Read on, and you’ll discover just how wearable denim really is during the warmer weather months.


On a Roll

Don’t underestimate the fashion impact of the cuff roll when shopping for the perfect jeans for hot weather. There’s seriously nothing cuter than a rolled-up pair of jeans with a teeny tiny tank. When evening temps drop, just roll them back down and throw on an equally adorable fringed jean jacket.

White Hot

Okay, so you can fry an egg on the sidewalk. That doesn’t make wearing denim impossible, especially not when you choose white jeans, which will reflect the sun’s rays and keep you oh-so-cool from beach to boardwalk.

If denim is a wardrobe staple, then denim shorts are simply a summer must-have. The great news is you can get them in every length, waist height, and style, including raw hem, hi-rise, frayed, and distressed.

The Perfect Boyfriend

Distressed boyfriend jeans are the perfect marriage of two fashion faves. The ripped and frayed distressed look is a hot fashion trend, while the boyfriend fit offers lived-in comfort. Plus, you can dress up or down at will by pairing them with anything from blouse to tank.

The Flip Side

There’s certainly a lot in the way of denim bottoms, but don’t forget that, thanks to crop tops, bustiers, and more, you can flip the script with a denim jacket over a tee and cotton bottoms, too. This would certainly be the perfect evening look when paired with ankle boots or sandals.
