13 Jun You Can Still Wear Jeans in the Summer
Can you still wear jeans in the summer?
Denim Look in the Summer
The answer to that question is a Heck ya! ( if you want to!)
Remember, we don’t follow those silly age rules!
BUT, it does come down to … will I die from heat stroke wearing jeans? Will they have to peel them off of me like Ross in Friends trying to get off his leather pants?
Really, it is about where you might wear them this summer, what kind of cut and material we are talking about .
I would wear this outfit to listen to a jazz concert in Uptown for instance. The Jazz Room, in Charlotte, is a local venue, inside with wonderful jazz artists. And I am sure you know that it is a given, when it is hot outside, establishments love to crank the air to where it feels like your stepping into a freezer!
So indoor events would certainly apply, as does going out in the evening. I love cooler summer evenings for that reason.
As far as cut, a looser fit would be best. These are Madewell Slim Boy Jeans, and are kind of a boyfriend looser fit. ( for reference, I am wearing a size 26 in Madewell, I wear a 27 in other brands) They are on sale with CODE SALEONSALE .A straight leg jean with a 90’s cut could certainly work as well. The idea is air flow! I won’t be wearing skinny jeans this summer, because they are more form fitting to the body and often a thicker material. Lightweight denim is preferred.
These jeans also have Tencel, which is a soft material, making them ultra comfortable as well. Not to mention, the “built in ” air conditioning, with a few distressed areas!
White denim is also a favorite pick for summer, as most often they are made of a lighter material. Look for some great cuts like a wide leg cropped jean for a change of pace. This top would look great with a pair of white straight leg jeans or a pair of wide leg denim.
I also bought this cobalt eyelet top last summer from Poshmark, and it fits like a dream. It is a mixed media top and the front portion is cotton with eyelet and scallop details. One of those bright colors that just looks vibrant in an outfit.
I kept it simple with my Bruno Magli bag and braided heels, and had to wear my cobalt floral earrings from Baublebar. ( bought a few years ago)
Now, most of the time you will see me in cotton or linen pieces in the summer, especially during the heat of the day, but as I mentioned, going out to a casual dinner, meeting friends later at night, are times when lightweight jeans can work well.
I may consider wearing this top with my white denim for the 4th of July as well.
